Going back-to-work can be fearful. Why? Many Moms have been working hard in a different role these past years. When they think of their prior professional caliber, thoughts creep in like self-doubt and uncertainty.
"Was that really me that led those meetings?" "I couldn't do that today" "No one would look at me and see a 'leader', they see me as someone's Mom."
Really, it is the dreaded imposter syndrome. Something those with consistent careers can struggle with too.
Both Untapped Potential Candidates and Mentors benefit from facing those thoughts... fearlessly! We've partnered with Kathy McAfee, Founder of The Fearless Leader Program which offers a key transformational experience that will strengthen your resolve, sharpen your skills, and level you UP!
Kathy McAfee, known as America’s Marketing Motivator, works with organizations to help them build more robust, diverse leadership pipelines, and with individual professionals who want to be known as experts in their fields. Her work inspires those in all stages of their career that seek to advance in leadership.
Find out more at an upcoming information session with Kathy and Fearless Leader Alumni. Prior participants share their experiences (we'll be announcing the winner of this cohort's Untapped Potential Fearless Leader scholarship!).
There will also be an optional 15 minutes of networking at the end.
The showcase is a a free, no obligation, 1 hour event.
Dates for the showcase:
Thursday, 8/31 12-1pm EST
Wednesday, 9/6 4-5pm EST
