A message from our CEO

Dear Ladies

 

April was a key month in our calendar as we launched "The Business Mingle", for the first time in Sri Lanka! This is a dedicated networking event for women in business and corporate to 'mingle', increase their network and learn strategies to monetize and grow their networth and potential. We had a panel discussion, lots of networking and a special segment by our key US Global Partner Vaneese Johnson, who flew down to Sri Lanka for this event. 

 

Further, I am excited to announce the launch of our dedicated 24/7 helpdesk to answer your coaching needs. You can ask to be coached by me, a global coach or local coach by contacting us at coaching@womenempowered.global 

 

I am also happy to mention that we expanded our reach in our Global Partner Network to Amsterdam, with Edith Nordmann, a seasoned corporate and commercial lawyer and litigator.

 

In this month's digest, we have the leadership column by our Slovenia partner, Sonja Klopčič on tips for leaders.

 

I also invite you to make your personal reflections as you go through our 'HeartTalk' feature this month taken with award-winning personality Brittany Garth, who was selected by Cosmopolitan Magazine (USA) as one of their Top 50 social influencers for 2017.

 

Remember to also catch the weekly dose of the 'Think a Minute' online series with the Boldness Coach Vaneese Johnson.

 

Everything we do at Women Empowered Global is to empower, engage and encourage women to be the best version of themselves and help them realize their true potential.

 

We are here to help you live your dream.

1.  What is your definition of women empowerment?

I believe women empowerment is defined as an action that men or women can show to elevate and motivate women. Empowerment in general, is vital to the overall advancement of humanity.

 

2. What motivated you to get involved in being inspirational for change?

My background is in social work and mental health, so naturally, motivating others is one of my passions as a human being. I know what it is like first hand to be un-empowered and in need of inspiration and have made it my life’s work to create a company to motivate and work with women all over the world to make a global difference.

Leadership Tip #3 : Creativity For Finding New Paths

Your leadership style is your creation, it comes out of your values, your personal mission and vision. Each leader is unique, as each of us follow our own internal motivation, our own WHY. The creativity is also necessary to produce something new from a given situation, something which previously has not been possible.

Otto Scharmer says in the book Theory U: »Tresholds or doorways usually appear when our conventional ways of operating no longer work, when we hit a wall. We have to drop our old tools and redirect and bend the beam of our attention to the field unfolding around and within us. It's like a crack in our reality: suddenly that crack is right there, right in your face. Then you have the choice: brush over it, or stop. If you stop: drop your tools, attend to the crack that is opening up in front of you, tune in to that crack, redirect your attention into it. And then, go with the flow. The capacity to see the crack – to stop and then to tune right in to it – is a key discipline of our time.«

Look inside yourself, at yourself and at your surroundings in a different way! Where are the scratches and cracks? Do not brush over them, grind or polish them. Let's open them and let our creativity be free.

 

Create freely.

 

Thought provoking snippet for April

Building your self confidence

 

If you want to be able to build confidence, you need to be able to recognize exactly what it is. Confidence is basically a mindset. When you are confident, you feel in control. You feel sure of yourself. You are certain about the results you will get. When you don’t have confidence, you will be unsure of yourself. You will be nervous because you won’t know what to expect.

If you can see something, you can copy it. Developing self-confidence can be as simple as acting confident. There is a term, “Fake it ’till you make it.” If you act confident long enough, you will start to actually feel confident. The reason why is because you can get your mind to think a certain way by forcing your body to move a certain way. 

The point is that you can learn how to gain more confidence by knowing what specifically to work on. The following are some tips.

 

1. Practice : If you have ever danced on the dance floor, most likely, your first time was a bit scary. However, after you went a few dozen times, it wasn’t as scary. This is just an example but you get the point. The more you do something, the more confident you will be at it.

2. Fake It Until You Make It: Practice can be great but many times, you will be in a situation where you have to be confident on the spot. In this case, you need to act like you have lots of confidence as mentioned earlier. This can come through practice. Remember that when you force your body to move confidently, you will eventually start to feel more confidently.

3. Look Good: Many times, lack of self confidence can come from worrying about how you look to other people. You can solve this by making sure you look your best. This can mean different things to different people. It may mean having to get some nice clothes or getting a hair cut more often. The point is to eliminate the worry of your appearance by doing whatever it is you need to do to make you feel good about yourself. This can even mean going to the gym more often.

4. Change Your Focus: Most of the time when we have low confidence, it’s because we are focused on ourselves. We focus on what other’s think of us. Instead of doing that, try focusing on other people and how you can contribute to them. When you take the focus away from yourself and put it onto others, it will help your fear go away because you won’t be thinking about it.

5. Don’t Take Life Too Seriously: Learn to laugh at yourself. Realize that you aren’t the only one with confidence issues. Know that anyone, if put in the right circumstances, can have a total lack of self confidence in themselves. Sometimes, we just have to take life for what it is, an experience and a chance to live it fully.

 

It’s when you believe that the mistakes you make will last a long time or that people will judge you for a long time or laugh at you for years to come, that you will feel less confident. When you realize that everyone has their own insecurities about themselves, you will realize that life is too short to let your fears stop you from doing the things you really want to do. Self confidence comes down to knowing that no matter how badly you mess up in public, in the whole scheme of life, it won’t even matter.
