The Power Of “The Only”-Breaking Barriers and Redefining Leadership

 

Have you ever felt like the only one? 

Whether you are “the only” woman in the room, or the only person in your company or industry, Angela believes there is power in being “The Only.”  It can be an opportunity to shift the conversation and the culture.

But, how can you harness it as a strength to step into your leadership and accelerate your success?

In this inspirational keynote, Angela shares her story of being “The Only” and lessons learned from other leaders breaking barriers, challenging stereotypes and carving their own path.  She shows you how to discover, break through and redefine your own barriers to achieve personal and professional success and fulfilment.  Angela will empower you to own your voice and your power and create change in yourself, your organization, and the world.  She will also explore how leadership and success is not just about achieving your goals, but defining your purpose, amplifying your gifts, and living your legacy.

By the end of this talk you will:

  • Learn how to redefine your barriers and turn them from obstacles into strengths
  • Have tools to transform your inner critic and self-talk
  • Be inspired to own your voice and step into your leadership with power and presence
  • Discover the Power Of “The Only”™ Leadership principles
  • Learn the YOU, Amplified!® Formula-Seven Steps to Confidence, Clarity and Connection
