Are you good enough? How the mindset of ‘not enough’ holds us back.

This event is sold out.

inner-voice Women are in a societal position to leverage opportunities and achieve success as leaders and entrepreneurs – and the world needs us now more than ever to create a positive influence. While there are many challenges on our path as leaders, our biggest is often our own inner critic and judge.

In this session you will learn how to recognize when your inner critic is influencing your choices and actions. You’ll learn re-framing techniques and strategies to silence this mindset to create a more empowered perspective. You will gain insight into how our thoughts, emotions and our body are connected – and can hold you back or propel you forward in your career and your life.

Please join us for coffee and breakfast while meeting and re-connecting with fellow members of the DeGroote Women’s Professional Network before and after the presentation.
