The Emotional Habits of Leaders

MidWest ACOG Medical Conference ~ August 10th, 2019

I was so honored to be a Keynote Speaker for ACOG Midwest Medical Conference. I spoke to over 175 women about “The Empowering Habits of Leaders”. Here’s a quick review of my talk.

Empowered Leaders:

  • Invest in the habit of self-awareness
  • Engage in the habit of taking risks
  • Tune into a higher purpose or mission

Shift Happens – Domesticated To Wild Hearted

Everyday Deep, January 16th, 2019

One of the big issues I witness in women is the loss of their instinctual, natural self – and the authenticity and aliveness that go with it. I loved speaking to the women at EVERYDAY DEEP about how to shift from domesticating their desires to activating their wild hearts.

Overtime, the experience of emotional domestication can cause a woman to lose the innate power of her natural wild-hearted self. When this happens a number of emotional habits can emerge – she domesticates her desires, stops noticing what she needs, is more hesitant to speak up and loses the innate power of her voice. However, when a women reclaims her wild-hearted nature she becomes more confident, authentic and empowered.

Moving from Fear and Into Action:
The Queen Esther Experience

Christ Church of Oak Brook, January 30th, 2018

Every woman has had a Queen Esther Experience – a moment when she needs to move from fear and into action. I was honored to host a workshop for the women at Christ Church of Oak Brook on January 30th, 2018. We collectively dug deeper into the story of Queen Esther and connected with her experience as a woman who took risks. Every woman left with a deeper awareness of how to move from fear and into action, from self-doubt to courage and with a greater awareness of how to access her tribe on her journey towards boldness.

Margo Tirado is the co-creator of the DASH Conference for women. The Conference is a collaboration of two therapists and friends that share a common belief that when women are able to own their true voice, amazing things happen. Margo Tirado and Shawna Burkhart are passionate about sharing their experiences and knowledge in broader and more meaningful ways. This conference is the seedling of that idea.

Jesus – An Activist for Women

Moody Chapel, February 22, 2018

I recently had the honor of speaking to 1600 college students at Moody Bible Chapel regarding Christ’s posture toward women. He was intentional about promoting the dignity and equality of women in the midst of a male-dominated society. During his three years of ministry on earth He created a radically new approach regarding the value of women as witnesses, disciples, teachers, and leaders. He did not accept the attitudes towards women that were customary during the first century, but instead, He sought to reform the status quo of women.

The Habit of Taking Up Space
How to Claim a Position of Leadership and Own Your Authority

A webinar with Margo Tirado and the Center for Women in Leadership
January 1, 22 | 12 – 1 p.m. (CT)

One way to overcome any barrier that might keep you from stepping into a position of leadership is a habit I refer to as taking up space. Taking up space means using your perspective, body language, and voice to claim a position of leadership and authority. When you take up space, you are claiming your inherent ability to lead others.

In this webinar I will teach you three elements of taking up space so that you can claim a position of leadership and authority:

  • Learn how to own your perspective.
  • Learn how to manage any fear keeping you from stepping into leadership.
  • Learn how to use your body language to exude confidence.
