From Shy to Shine

From Shy to Shine, From Shy to Shine Group Coaching

Have a second, to think of the women you enjoy watching while they speak on stage, in front of the public, in front of the camera. They are so energetic and motivating. It feels like they speak from their heart. They look so natural, confident and authentic. They simply rock the flow. 

So, you might wonder, how do they do that? 

By practice, constant practice of change. It’s not just rules to follow and learn, but it is a transformation of the self. It requires eliminating blocks, creating a new mindset, changing beliefs and rituals, building confidence, until it becomes a habit of your everyday life. Once you change the baseline, becoming the best version of yourself is certain.

Yes, it is that simple. It is just one decision away.

Being a woman is a gift. It may also be your superpower. And every woman is special. I can show you how special you are in only one sentence. There is no other woman in the world that has been through the exact same experience and has the same skills as you. That is how unique you are. Your potential lies in that. And it is your responsibility to share your message with the world.

The opportunity to speak in front of an audience, whether it is three or three hundred people, is the chance to sell your business or service to potential customers or clients. It is the chance for you to advance in your career and have much bigger impact in the world.

However, one of the biggest obstacles that many business women face is – THE FEAR OF SPEAKING IN PUBLIC AND BEING SEEN.

Honestly, I never had trouble speaking in front of people.

Except for when I did. And it is not that I didn’t have the speaking skills, oh, I am good with words, no, those were the times when I thought “Who are you to stand up and ask the question…” And I kept on sitting on the table.

Then, I remember once, there was this foreign speaker, very inspiring, sharing wonderful bits of advice and stories. And, also giving away few copies of his book to people who asked a question…

At the end of the seminar, I got the courage to approach and thank him.

I said: “Hello, I am also a trainer and coach. I wanted to share my story when you asked those questions, but I didn’t.” And he told me: “If you are a trainer and coach, then you should’ve spoken!”

Oh, my gosh, his words remained with mein me for years.

Since then, and after much work on my personal development, I rarely miss a chance to share my opinion.

To speak up. To show up.

That is why I created a course and a personal program in this field. And worked with many people on building this capacity to be able to shine their light, spread their message, and have an impact in the world.

 I incorporated in it all my Public Relations experience (both with corporate, as well as with UN resident representatives and public figures). I blended it with deep personal development work (self-image, self-confidence, and self-love) and, finally, seasoned it with powerful NLP tools.

If you want to talk with confidence on meetings, conferences, events, deliver workshops and courses, negotiate with grace and power, record live videos, and hold presentations – all of which will bring you to new levels of impact and connection, a new self-confidence, new income – allow me to support you on this journey.

You can expect top-notch tools and practices, much love and support, guidance, coaching, some training, and pride. I am looking forward to seeing you shine your light and me being proud of you, too!
