How I Can Help You
I show you how to build confidence and manage your inner critic so you can step into your political calling.
So many of us are being called to stand up for what we believe in, to take action, get involved, and run for something. Lack of confidence is the #1 reason that women don’t run for office! I’ll teach you tools you can use to increase your confidence, manage that inner voice that tells you you’re not good enough, and stand up visibly and publicly for your issues.
I teach you how to overcome criticism and negative attacks so you can stay focused and WIN.
Criticism only hurts when it resonates and we believe it. But most criticism and negative attacks are a reflection of the other person, not you. I’ll show you how to constructively use what’s useful, and detach from hurtful attacks so you can keep your head in the game and win.
I show you how to embrace becoming a public persona, even when you screw up.
The fear of making mistakes can be crippling when you step into a very public role while running for office. I’ll show you how to manage the humiliation of making a mistake so you can stay authentic, relatable, and worthy of public trust.
Why Coaching Will Work for You
You are more well-equipped to run and win than you may know. By discovering your own negative or limiting thoughts, you can change the way your brain works so you can stand up for what you believe in with confidence! With a few tools you can take advantage of your brain’s incredible ability to rewire (called neuroplasticity) to learn new habits, think new thoughts, and believe new beliefs. Regardless of what your life looks like now, you can make any changes needed to step confidently into public life, run for office, and WIN.
