SuperPowerment: How Women Can Master Bravery and Become Unstoppable
Breakout Session / Keynote Speech
What could we accomplish if we never had to worry about what people would think – or if we didn’t have to worry about failing? Too often, women don’t pursue the things we really want because of internal barriers. Christina has discovered a simple way to disempower these inhibitors so that we can be truly unstoppable.
Throughout her presentation, she uses laugh-out-loud humor and engrossing stories from life on the road (as a touring stand-up comic) to present a step-by-step process to acknowledge our dreams, overcome the fears that hold us back, and take real, immediate action towards accomplishing our goals.
She also uses captivating personal stories to introduce the external “villains” women face – such as discrimination, sexual harassment, and abuse – and provides practical strategies to maintain power in any situation.
SuperPowerment’s ultimate goal is to have every woman know we can actually achieve our greatest dreams. The end of the session is a call to action, to take one brave first step, whether small or large. It is entirely possible in light of what we’ve already been through, as long as we use that one secret ingredient that Christina reveals and exemplifies – a “superpower” that’s within us all….
- Identify and list the ways we are already empowered.
- Define sexual harassment, discrimination, consent, and abuse.
- Create a personal resource containing the first step to take after an incident.
- Identify personal goals that we are keeping ourselves from achieving.
- Identify which of 3 types of fear is/are preventing achievement of our goal.
- Implement a 3-step process to remove self-imposed barriers and achieve a specific goal.
