What will you learn?

Session 1 - Believe in Yourself

Confidence starts with knowing that you are good enough. But that’s hard to believe when the negative chatter in your head tells you otherwise. This week is about turning down the volume on your Inner Critic, getting in touch with the wise, calm part of you and recognising what you uniquely bring to your role.

Session 2 - Mastering your Mindset

We’ll be exploring the thinking patterns that could be holding you back, tackling perfectionism, imposter feelings and overworking and helping you to develop a growth mindset so that you no longer fear failure and can be kinder to yourself.

Session 3 - The Courage to have Challenging Conversations

First we’ll explore what we find hard about certain conversations then I’ll share my best coaching techniques for building up the courage to tackle issues head on. I’ll be sharing the communication tools you can use to deliver feedback, set boundaries and say no without creating conflict.

Session 4 - Speaking Up

You’ll be joining meetings feeling confident after this session. You’ll learn how to start and end your contribution powerfully, how to respond when you are put on the spot and how to focus on the meeting rather than your worries and self-doubt. We’ll also be looking at how you can use your voice and body language to have more presence in meetings and be taken seriously.

You Can Get This Bonus:

  • Access to Carla's online modules on how to worry less about work 

"Carla and Haseena are great coaches, knowledgeable, very approachable and it felt like they really related to and understood the issues everyone had with confidence and made me feel like I was not alone.

They provided relevant and practical strategies and tools which can be applied not just to work situations but life in general and going through the exercises with them has already had a positive effect on me. I think I will use them in many situations far into the future.

I felt it was a safe space for self reflection and speaking up."

- Sally, Be Bolder March 22

Here’s what other women have to say about the tools and techniques you’ll be learning…

“The tools Carla taught me have made me feel a lot more confident in my ability to deal with situations I would usually have spent days avoiding dealing with!”

- Julie Mitchell

“My confidence has skyrocketed and instead of feeling ‘I can’t’ or feeling like a bit of an impostor I feel like I CAN - and if things don’t go perfectly that’s simply something to grow and learn from.It has been a great experience, in sum, and I thoroughly recommend working with Carla.”

- Anna-Maija Riist

“My line manager has commented that I have grown in confidence since taking part in this cohort, knowing how and when to speak up and not being as afraid to have conversations that feel difficult or uneasy. If you are a people pleaser/Likeable Lucy (like me!) Carla is fantastic at showing you that it doesn't have to remain that way and all the benefits of changing those habits. I am leaving with a toolbox of new ways to influence and grow in my career, so thankful to Carla and the group of amazing women in my cohort!”

- Emma McKellar

“I have now found my inner leader, and know how to recognise (and banish!) my inner critic. This workshop is perfect for any women who also feel self-doubt in the workplace and need a boost of confidence. I am sure that the tools Carla has given me will help my career no end.”

- Catherine Thomson
