30-day Challenge for Embodying Self-Empowerment with Colleen Slaughter


Hello and Welcome to the Stepping into Bolder Self-Advocacy 30-day Challenge!

We are so glad you’re here!

This is the first time we’re offering this opportunity which came about from our work with hundreds of people within a large financial institution as well as hundreds of women leaders looking for tips on stepping up more impactfully to the plate for themselves and others.

In today’s hectic world, it can get easy to get lost in the chaos and forget ourselves, and what is most important to us. Yet, when we do, we are actually contributing to our own and others’ missing sense of safety.

The solution? Embodying the key tools for effectively finding and using our voice– one bite size at a time.

This program supports you in creating your own transformation so whatever may have been blocking you from stepping up for yourself no longer does; you become freer to act on your own and others’ behalf.

As you do, you start being more part of a virtuous circle for the good of the world. Yes, you do have that power!
