The Good Girl Syndrome

good girl syndrome

This is me (well, this was, and maybe sometimes, it still is)! How about you? The Good Girl. I remember when I was younger and being asked by my parents to stay the “good girl” often. I feared speaking up or taking risks in case I wasn’t a good girl. Today, I embrace the courageous […]

How We Can Close The Gap

This week, I delivered a women in leadership program, one of my favourites. Why? Having a group of outstanding women in a room sharing, learning, and growing is beyond humbling.

For some, a coach might mean someone who trains a team of people in a particular sport. Others see coaches […]

How to Harness the Mighty Power of Self Affirmations

When we talk about self-affirmations, there will always be people who agree that self-affirmations really do work and those who don’t believe in that wishy-washy kind of stuff. I’m in the group that believes that self-affirmations do actually work and can be a way for leaders to become more successful, kind, courageous and empathetic. In […]

Have the Courage to Value and be Kind to Yourself

“There is no-one like you. That is your Superpower.” @Thrive Valuing those around you – appreciating the things they do for you, the things they say, who they are as a person – is often much easier than valuing yourself. Many of us struggle to appreciate the things that make us great, and the things […]
