It’s true that women in Leadership positions are battling against a tsunami of implicit and explicit biases that are working against them.
It’s true that society and corporate culture has created glass ceilings which are discriminatory in nature.
How about the disadvantages that women face in their inner worlds?
We are all products of our upbringing and socialization - our brains the products of implicit and explicit conditioning.
Our inner world runs on an operating system of beliefs, ideas, fears and priorities that have been passed on to us when we were children. Our brain can only work with the mental models and expectations that it has been programmed with, and much of this programming has occurred at a subconscious level. Unfortunately, this programming of our minds is just as biased and faulty as the biases and prejudices we see outside in society. Rather, much of the biases in our minds would have been shaped by the biases present in the culture and social system that were present when we were children.
Is it possible at all to re-program, rewire and upgrade these subconscious limiting beliefs, mental models, and outdated fears?
The answer is a RESOUNDING YES!
This program has been crafted especially for ambitious women who know in their hearts and conscious minds that they have every right to dream and aspire big. For women who would like to align all their faculties - heart, conscious mind, subconscious mind, and behavioural patterns - to make big and bold strides towards their dreams.
This one year program is a blend of lessons, coaching sessions, reflective activities, prototyping challenges, guest lectures, mentoring circles and peer support that has been designed to create transformational inside - out changes.
An unknown bias, fear, limiting belief or inner critique inside our mind is actually way more dangerous, than a known one. Just because we are unaware of a certain aspect in our subconscious programming it does not mean that those thoughts do not impact our choices, actions and behaviours. Rather it sometimes impacts us in even more powerful ways than our conscious thoughts often can.
Tricky, as it might seem to work with the aspects of our inner worlds and past conditioning, the good news is that there are tried and tested tools through which it can be done. Crafting our inner worlds is an ongoing journey of mastery - one that theoretically never ends. Yet even small levels of change in the inner world can open gates for transformational results in the outer world.
Superblooming your career is 60% inner work and 40% outer work, and the design of this program reflects that principle.
