What does it take to lead yourself and others with confidence when you’re told you don’t belong and that your “kind” are just not good enough? For over 400 years Blacks in America have wrestled with this question as have others who have experienced being the “first” or the “only” in a room that had formerly excluded their “kind”. Whether a different race, ability, gender identity, education level, body type, language fluency, wealth, religion, or political party – it takes something more to create real self-confidence, the kind that stands up to the discomfort of feeling unwelcome and the pressure to play small. During this session Asia Bribiesca-Hedin will explore what it took then and now to rise beyond the limitations others would place on us as well as the limitations we place on ourselves.
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
- Execute a simple formula for making strategic decisions even when you're feeling out of your comfort zone.
- Determine how to tap into your natural resilience.
- Articulate the single question to ask yourself and your teams when self-doubt or uncertainty are wreaking havoc.
