What Does Authority Sound Like?: The Female Voice of Leadership

What Does Authority Sound Like The Female Voice of Leadership.png

Bossy. BitchyShrill.

Do any of those words ring a bell - or make you cringe - when you think of a woman speaking with authority?

Everyone is talking about what really holds women back in the workplace: vocal patterns like upspeak and vocal fry, too much “just” or “sorry”, an inability to Lean In or crack The Confidence Code....and there’s a lot of noise out there about what does and does not work.

So are we supposed to express ourselves with confidence and clarity? What does leadership SOUND like?

In this highly interactive workshop, Casey Erin Clark, co-founder of Vital Voice Training, will give you a crash course on:

  • How to find a voice that sounds like YOU, but communicates how you want others to see you

  • How society sees authority and power in communication and how you can fit into that framework

  • The habits that lead to common vocal issues which keep us from feeling confident and being present

  • How to access power even when you don’t feel powerful

Attendees can expect to be on their feet and using their voices several times within the workshop, all within a safe and supported exploration outside of comfort zones. All participation is voluntary, of course, and our participants always have a blast.

Co-Hosted by Rachel Wynn of Feminist Founder.

FOR WHOM: Women+ who want to access their more confident, powerful voices - especially aspiring or current leaders, managers, and entrepreneurs.

CREATIVE BOOST — PUNCH UP YOUR PROCESSES: A New Way to Think About Business Operations

CREATIVE BOOST  PUNCH UP YOUR PROCESSES.png

Business operations. Business processes. Operational infrastructure. Just thinking about these terms probably puts you halfway to sleep or sends you running for the nearest exit. But that is about to change….

Without a distinct and deliberate approach to operations, a business can’t fully function: no one would know where they fit in, what they were supposed to do, or how to do it. This leaves a business unprepared to handle growth, changes, or setbacks of any kind and vulnerable to slipping into chaos.

This energetic workshop for small business owners and managers will help you think about the inner workings of your business in a new way!

Calm Your Inner Critic Workshop

Calm Your Inner Critic Workshop.jpg

You know the voice: the one that’s constantly in your ear evaluating everything you’re doing (or not doing), telling you to be this way or not that way, and generally making sure that you’re following the rules and playing nice — that’s your inner critic.

Our inner critic is the part of our brains designed to keep us safe. When we’re little kids it keeps us safe by making sure we don’t touch a hot stove, don’t walk across a busy street, don’t talk to strangers, etc. But then, as we get older, they add more and more things to the list, things like…

Don’t be too loud.
Don’t be too needy.
Don’t speak up if you don’t know the answer. Be perfect.
Share.
Be nice.
Go to the gym. Every. Day.

This is super helpful and probably helped you become the successful person you are today.

But, there comes a point where this voice stops keeping us safe and starts keeping us small.

This voice can be the biggest deterrent to our dreams because instead of encouraging us to be who we are and do what we want, it encourages us to be what our parents or society wants us to be and makes sure we do what is expected of us. It tells us that if we don’t, everyone will hate us, we’ll lose our jobs, and we’ll never have love.

Life and Relationship Coach Joanna Platt is here to tell you that it is possible to live a life that is authentic to you and have connected relationships and meaningful work. But to do that, you’ll have to develop a new relationship with your inner critic.

Business Insurance 101

Insurance mistakes invalidate your policy

  • Does your insurance policy states that it covers you “everywhere”?
  • Does your name and not your company’s (or LLC) appear as the insured?
  • Have you added new business locations or services since you last renewed your liability insurance?
  • Does it scare you to even call your insurance company to ask for information for fear of having a higher premium?

This exciting new workshop will cover all the red flags that may invalidate your current policy. But most importantly it will provide vital information about how you can protect your business from the inherent risks:

  • A customer files a lawsuit against you
  • An alleged breach of contract
  • An employee gets injured on the job
  • A natural disaster destroys your property
