Step into Your Moxie: Buff Up Your Visibility Muscles, Claim the Spotlight, and Serve Your Audience

Have you ever felt like you were in an on-again, off-again relationship… with your own voice?

Too many women, irrespective of our race, class, age, ability, or sexual orientation, are tap-dancing on eggshells, striving to be liked, and give the “right answers”—hoping not to be called out for failing to be enough of whatever we believe others want us to be.

At other times, we harbor a deep knowing that we were put here to make a big, positive impact in the world.  Often, we flip-flop between these two experiences and it impacts how we express ourselves.

About a decade ago, sought-after women’s communication expert and author, Alexia Vernon, realized she was experiencing her own wonky relationship to her voice – even as she was dishing out career and leadership advice to other women. In this provocative Power Boost, Alexia will share with you the playful pathway she – and her tribe members have used – so you can fall (back) in love with your voice and step into the role of thought leader your community needs you to be.

You will identify (and speak back) to the voices sabotaging your ability to step into (and speak with) moxie in all areas of your life. And, you will develop practical tools and answer pivotal questions so you can use your moxie to speak up about the issues and ideas that matter most to you.

Whether you want to speak with candor, clarity, compassion, and ease in your career/business or on stage, rock daring conversations with colleagues, clients, or loved ones, run for office, or tell the people closest to you to step back from the boundaries they’ve trespassed, you will leave this Power Boost with the mindset and behaviors to do it.
