What would you do if you were even BRAVER?
I’ve been asking hundreds of high-performing leaders, across various industries, this important question over the last few years.
And whether to an Executive Director, a successful business owner, or a Manager the first day of the job, they all have an answer. Because they all have a part of their life they wished they were showing up more powerfully.
We all want to take action towards our dreams, unleash our full potential, and live the life we’ve always imagined.
The truth is, we ALL want to be braver.
And the good news is, we ALL have the capacity to learn to be braver!
Are you looking to stand out in your work place, or gain more respect from your colleagues? Get further, faster? Enjoy greater fulfillment in both your work and your life?
And, you gotta be willing to get your brāv on!

You have been challenged by a friend to post a selfie on social media in your pajamas - sans make-up, hair not done (bedhead welcome if you dare!) How likely are you to say yes to this challenge?

How likely are you to take yourself out on a date, or go for dinner on your own?
If your company asks you to do something that goes against your values, how likely are you to speak up?
You and your co-worker have been asked to represent your organization at an important networking event. You arrive and do not see your partner in crime. How likely are you to walk up to another individual or small group and say hello?
