For too long, public speaking training has fostered a masculine model of what leadership and professionalism looks and feels like. This can have a detrimental effect on the self-esteem of women and girls who desire to speak up and lead.
They look around at masculine leaders (male and female) and subconsciously think to themselves:
“I can’t be a leader because I don’t look or feel like that.”
“I have to hide or suppress parts of myself in order to speak up and be taken seriously.”
This sparks feelings of self-doubt, a lack of valuing the wisdom within, and a resistance to speaking up. It erodes a woman’s sense of inner freedom to lead and share her mind publicly.
It’s time for a public speaking training that supports women in harnessing the power of their feminine energy, and in being fully who they are, as they stand up to speak, lead and change our world.
HOW IS WOMANSPEAK DIFFERENT?
Our curriculum supports women in clarifying and owning the value of their ideas. We teach women how to prepare and deliver talks, presentations and communications that move, impact and influence their listeners.
We support women in feeling confident and free to speak up & be themselves in a variety of settings: public talks on stages, panel discussions, group/team meetings, fundraising conversations and more.
We help women to transform fear, doubt and resistance to sharing their voices into natural confidence and charisma. We deal with the unique challenges that come up for women around sharing their voices in the presence of men.
We provide a very supportive, celebratory and fun environment!
WHY IS WOMANSPEAK SO EFFECTIVE?
Our unique practices help women to re-wire their nervous systems so that speaking up becomes an experience of safety, power, joy and freedom.
Women will have the opportunity to spend time in nature and in the vibrant and fresh San Francisco Bay Area. You will come to gather with other extraordinary women and discover a whole new level of freedom and power in sharing your voice.
The Foundation Course is a weekend filled with deep communion with nature and other incredible women, as well as a deep dive into clarifying your core message, learning practices for sharing your voice authentically and effectively, and gaining the pieces to structure the talk you’ve always wanted to give.
Imagine connecting deeply with nature and tapping into your deepest knowing and what your soul is calling for you to do and say.
Imagine dropping in deeply with a small group of women movers and shakers who will be your cheerleaders and friends going forward as you take bold, courageous steps to share your voice with the world.
Imagine standing in front of all the women while you speak straight and true from your heart what it is that needs to be said…and being so held, supported and cheered on as you do so.
Imagine learning the integral elements of writing a powerful talk that has your audience leaning in and hanging on your every word.
Imagine sitting by the creek, talking about what next bold moves you will make to further the reach and impact of your work.
You will come away from this weekend with so much more than incredible public speaking training.
You will learn the critical components of writing a compelling, thought leadership based talk of any length.
You will walk away with a new freedom and strength within to take your work as a spokeswoman and leader in this world to new heights.
You will feel clarity and power in your message, and a natural confidence to stand up and give it – anywhere, anytime, and with anyone.
You will get to actually deliver a short talk during the weekend, in front of the most supportive audience you’ve ever experienced.
You will develop a powerful, tight community of women friends who are utterly dedicated to your success and the flourishing of your voice in this world.
And so much more...
The course involves lots of celebration, fun and authentic connection with other inspiring women.
You will get plenty of time to practice speaking, and every woman will get direct support from KC.
Part of the training includes movement, light hiking, yoga, dance, and learning to speak from a place of being connected with our bodies. This allows us to connect with our deepest knowing, wisdom and presence. And it’s so much fun. (You aren’t going to do this in any other public speaking training program!)
