The Most Powerful You:
Close Your Power Gaps And Rock Your Career At The Highest Level
This transformative program is designed expressly for professional women (and those who lead and manage them) who wish to address and close the 7 damaging power gaps that hold women back today from achieving their highest and most thrilling visions for their work and careers.
Drawing on Kathy’s new book — The Most Powerful You: 7 Bravery-Boosting Paths to Career Bliss (just out from HarperCollins Leadership and Murdoch Books) – this power-growth framework has been honed and developed in over Kathy’s 15 years of coaching, consulting and leadership training with women — and through her work as a senior Forbes contributor.
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 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 difference they long to.
In this program, Kathy explores what she has found to be the 7 most prevalent power gaps women face, where they came from, and offers specific strategies, solutions and tips for closing those gaps once and for all.
These 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:

In this program, Kathy’s draws on her 5-Step Success Model to help women grow, stretch and experience more confidence and success:
- Step Back – Gain much-need clarity on your special talents, skills, and passions, understand where you’ve been professionally, and where you’d like to go in the future. Learn what must change, and why
- Let Go – of the thinking, patterns and behaviors that are keeping you stuck, and heal and release them
- Say YES! – Understand what you truly want in your work, and the skills and endeavors you are great at and love to use (vs. skills you no longer care to focus on)
- Explore – Refine new career options from “sound-cool! ideas” vs. real-life directions that fit with your values, priorities, and needs
- Create It! – Develop a S.M.A.R.T. and doable timeline and action plan to research, determine, and achieve your new career goals
The ultimate outcome?
This power-boosting program will inspire and support participants to overcome what’s in the way of working and contributing with more power, control and authority, and experiencing themselves as the true authors of your own life.
They’ll understand more clearly their talents and abilities and their abilities to make the difference they dream to by owning their positive power and leveraging it to doing meaningful work they love.
And they’ll begin this “power breakthrough” process directly in the session.
