Forget the Apologies and Learn to Lead with Confidence

9am - 12pm AEDT
Selling Fast

Do you find yourself apologising for no good reason? Do you deflect praise or minimise your accomplishments? Are you frustrated that women’s confidence is often perceived as arrogance?

Apologies are confidence killers. So, why do women apologise all the time? With every unnecessary apology you give, you chip away at our confidence. Professor Maja is on a mission to turn the apologetic communication styles of women into confidence building lingo.

Apologies have become a habitual way of communicating for many women and it’s intimately linked to feelings of being an imposter. Imposter syndrome ensures you never feel “good enough”, which can lead to you undervaluing yourself and feeling like you don’t belong.

Maja draws on years’ worth of data collected with thousands of women around the world to inform her research and build her concepts and strategies. This seminar will help you to forget the apologies, claim your credibility, and learn to lead with confidence.

Professor Maja

Sociologist, Author, TedX Speaker & Confidence-Builder
The world’s foremost expert and researcher on gendered confidence inhibitors

 

I am a sociologist, author and TEDx speaker. I’m also a confidence-builder and apology-hater. I graduated with a Ph.D. in Sociology in 2014 (focusing on the sociology of women’s health), with no clear career in mind, until I attended an academic conference that completely changed the trajectory of my research, my career and my life. At that conference, I witnessed women at the pinnacle of their career deflecting praise (we call that feminine modesty) and over-apologising for mundane issues. I immediately became obsessed with apologies.

Key learning outcomes:

  • Why apologies hurt your confidence and how to stop needlessly apologising
  • How to strengthen your communication skills by avoiding minimising and disqualifying lingo
  • How to switch out common communication pitfalls for more confident lingo
  • Why perfectionism and a fear of failure sabotages both our behaviour and communication
  • How automatic negative thoughts chip away at our confidence

This seminar is ideal for:

Aspiring, emerging and existing female leaders from all sectors. Anyone who could do with a confidence boost or build their communication skills needs to attend this seminar.

 

  • Manager through to senior leadership
  • Early career and emerging female leaders
  • Learning and development practitioners
  • Consultants and leadership coaches
  • Women returning to work from leave
