Close Your Power Gaps


The Most Powerful You:
Close Your Power Gaps And Reach Your Highest, Most Thrilling Potential

This transformative training and speaking program is designed to support professional women of all levels (and the men and women who lead and manage them) to reach their highest and most fulfilling and rewarding potential.

The program focuses on helping professionals address and close the 7 most damaging power and confidence gaps that hold them back today from growing, thriving and leading successfully.

Drawing on Kathy’s latest , top-rated book — The Most Powerful You: 7 Bravery-Boosting Paths to Career Bliss (HarperCollins Leadership and Murdoch Books, July 2020) – this power-growth framework has been honed and developed through Kathy’s 16 years of coaching, consulting and leadership training with professionals across 26 countries and 6 continents – and through her work as a senior Forbes contributor, media source and speaker.

Based on experience as a senior executive in the corporate arena and her years as a marriage and family therapist and career & leadership coach — Kathy’s Power and Confidence Boost framework and model for change helps professional women around the world access more strength, influence, authority and impact so they can reach their highest potential and make the positive difference they long to.

In this program, Kathy explores what she has found to be the 7 most prevalent power and confidence gaps women face (including imposter syndrome), how these gaps emerged, and offers specific strategies, solutions and tips for closing those gaps once and for all.

The 7 power gaps are:

#1: Not Recognizing Your Special Talents, Abilities and Accomplishments

#2: Communicating from Fear Not strength

#3: Reluctance to Ask for What You Deserve

#4: Isolating from Influential Support

#5: Acquiescing Instead of Saying STOP! to Mistreatment

#6: Losing Sight of Your Thrilling Dream for the Future

#7: Allowing Past Trauma or Pain to Define You

In Kathy’s latest survey, 98% of those studied are facing at least one of these power gaps, and over 75% are experiencing 3 or more gaps at the same time. Here’s more:

“I work with a lot of speakers, from emerging to celebrity, and what any conference designer wants most is a sure bet. Kathy Caprino is a sure bet. She is professional and responsive leading up to an event and fully engaged while on site. Her audience at The Network of Executive Women’s (NEW) flagship Summit (hundreds of professional women) loved her relatable stories and her practical guidance on how they can identify, then fill the power gaps that stand between them and their highest potential. These days, it’s all about “the takeaway” as we can get inspiration anywhere and everywhere. Kathy understands this and she delivered.
