With all the ongoing discussions regarding women empowerment and gender equality, the team at Boss Ladies United continues its efforts to bring about personal transformation for women in business. Founded in February 2021, the trio team doesn’t just want change, they are prepared to lead the change that’s so desperately needed to see women continue to evolve to become the best version of themselves and to show up more confidently in business.
Executing a mission to cultivate a professional development and networking society for women where collaboration among women becomes second nature, Boss Ladies United operates under the firm belief that “increased competence breeds increased confidence” which leads to a path of success and greater fulfilment.
Recently, the Boss Ladies United team rolled out its seventh personal and professional development workshop under the theme: TimeToBossUp2.0. The team hosted over 50 women in business and small business owners at the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados, a key sponsor.
Participants benefited from practical tips, techniques and hands-on evaluations aimed at highlighting the power of connecting in order to better communicate, while leveraging improved communications to boost confidence and influencing skills, all vital attributes needed in business.
Founder, certified coach and facilitator, Alison Browne-Ellis, noted: “Admittedly, areas such as speaking up, being more confident and making genuine connections are all areas that many women in business continue to struggle with.”
In 2021, Forbes Coach Council identified the Top 15 Challenges That Women Leaders Face with Being Confident, Speaking Up, Building Alliances and Trusting Their Own Voice being high on the list. Browne-Ellis argued that “these findings further reinforce the importance of making
such training available to our women in business as they continue the climb.”
The TimeToBossUp2.0 workshop was designed to bring greater awareness to these specific professional development areas, while offering practical training on giving and receiving feedback, delivering an elevator pitch and activating greater self-awareness in order to better assess one’s conversational capacity when engaging with challenging or stressful situations.
One of the guiding principles that governs the vision and mandate executed by co-founders, Keri Mapp, Tricia Griffith and Browne-Ellis is that “transformation begins with you.” Our thrust to stimulate growth, elevation and transformation among women is only possible if women first acknowledge and embrace new levels of self-awareness that leads to them moving with intentionality to bridge the gaps that may exist in how women are showing up.
