Reclaim Your Strength: (Re)Discovering the Qualities that Make You a Great Leader

How do you thrive as a woman who leads? The truth is that you already have the tools. You were just told time and time again that you can’t use them to be an effective leader.

Throughout our lives, women are told that we shouldn’t bring our strengths to the surface. We should go for a different version of strength.

Using real-world principles of S.T.R.E.N.G.T.H. Training, participants will learn how to identify and use their own personal strengths to lead themselves and have a powerful role in all areas of life.

This is a call to arms for women to remember and reclaim the innate qualities that make them great. By overcoming self-doubt and self-criticism, participants develop inner strength and have clear action steps to apply their unique strengths in their work.
They become better leaders and more self-aware, whether they’re leading themselves, their communities, or their co-workers.
Participants will learn:

  • The most important leadership qualities (Hint: Women already have them.).
  • What to do when self-doubt gets in the way.
  • Actionable tips to apply these leadership qualities every day.

Delivered as a keynote address or breakout session.

Finding Your Voice: Realizing Your True Power

What does it mean to “find your voice?” What does it mean to use it?

The truth is that every woman has a powerful voice. Every woman has a responsibility to use that voice.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been talked over, talked down to. Your voice has a purpose.

In this session, you’ll be challenged to discover your authentic voice and own it. That’s how you’ll develop the strength and confidence to use it.


This workshop takes participants on a journey of self-exploration to discover their true power. They’ll have a powerful foundation to finding their voice and using it to empower others and be an agent of change.

The key takeaways for participants are:

  • To discover what it means to find your voice.
  • To write a personal manifesto that helps them discover the purpose behind the message.
  • To find ways to use their voice to empower others.

Delivered as a breakout session or virtual workshop.

It’s OK to Want More: Changing Expectations

We grow up being keenly aware of everyone else’s expectations of us. We conform and contort ourselves to fit in that role of expectations.

Every day, we’re sent hidden and subtle messages about what it means to be a girl or a woman. These messages are drilled into us to the point where we expect less, take up less space and stay to our role.

This is something that women have encountered at least once. What are the main messages that we get as little girls and how do we rebel against them through simple actions?

Heather McDaniel discovered these messages growing up as an athlete. These messages showed up throughout her career, whether working for a corporation or as an entrepreneur.

What about our expectations of the world? When was it ever acceptable for women to expect more? More money? More status? More fun?

In this workshop, through critical self-awareness practices, women can step into their greatness and show up strong and confident.

In this talk, women are called to:

  • Discover how messages we get as girls impact our ability to expect more.  
  • Overcome impostor syndrome and know that they truly deserve more.
  • Challenge the status quo by taking up space and asking what they’re worth.

Delivered as a breakout session or virtual workshop.
