You know the stats.

Women earn 81 cents for every dollar a man earns.

Women are half of the population, but less than 5% of the CEOs and 20 % of board members of the largest companies.

While the debate rages about whether women can “have it all” or should choose “the mommy track,” female employees keep bumping up against a “glass ceiling” that keeps most of them from attaining leadership positions.

That’s just the Big Picture.

At your job, you can work hard, play nice and be conscientious, and still find yourself stuck, while men with the same or less competence, but more confidence, get the rewards that you want: the promotion, the big project, the pay.

Studies show that men and women perform at the same level, yet men tend to overestimate their abilities and performance, while women underestimate theirs, and those expectations become self-fulfilling. 

Confidence, or lack of it, can make the difference between realizing your dreams, goals, and desires, or getting stuck in a trap of perfectionism, risk-avoidance and “nice-girl” behavior.

What if you could grow authentic confidence? Not bravado or BS, but confidence in your abilities and in yourself as a person. Would you want that?

In this webinar with Executive Coach David Kaiser, PhD, (B'90), you will learn HOW to grow your authentic confidence so that you can “lean in” and get the results and the recognition you deserve and desire. 

David Kaiser is an certified Executive Coach and an Alumnus of Georgetown University. He is the CEO of Confidence for Women Professionals and Dark Matter Consulting. He helps women who are struggling with perfectionism, aversion to conflict and “impostor syndrome" to become happier and more effective leaders by growing their authentic confidence. His clients can be found on four continents and at organizations large and small, from BP to Rotary Internal to the Navajo Nation.

David has been facilitating transformational growth since 2004, and has worked with over 250 leaders and professionals.
