How To Build Confidence As A Woman With Nicole Kalil


There are a lot of talks these days about the need for more feminine leaders in the world. But what does that mean, exactly? And how can you become one? In this podcast episode, I talk with Nicole Kalil about how to build confidence as a woman. We jam on honoring your natural intelligence, trusting yourself more, and making confident decisions that move your life forward.

I truly loved this conversation because it was on a topic that really excites me these days, and that's talking about the duality of feminine leadership and masculine leadership together. Not us women trying to be men or vice versa, but the duality and the coherence between the two.

One of my favorite takeaways from our conversation was Nicole saying that confidence is not a feeling; it's a choice. And as you might know, I talk a lot about the power of choice. When we can make a powerful decision from a place of inner trust and knowing, we begin to set ourselves free in such a beautiful way.

If you've ever felt like you're not living up to your full potential or that you could do better if you just had a little more self-confidence, then this episode is for you. Whether you are a woman looking to take on a leadership role in your career or community, or just someone who wants to live bigger and bolder each day, Nicole has some great insights and practical tips to help you up your confidence game.

So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and listen in as we talk about how to be more confident and how to tap into your inner power. Trust me – this episode is packed with actionable advice that will help you live a happier, more fulfilling life.

About Nicole Kalil

Nicole’s passion for eliminating gender expectations and redefining “Woman’s Work” is both what keeps her up at night and what gets her up in the morning. Well, that and an abundant amount of coffee. An in-demand speaker, leadership strategist, respected coach, and host of the “This Is Woman’s Work” Podcast, her stalker-like obsession with confidence sets her apart from the constant stream of experts telling us to BE confident. She actually tells how you build it and gives actionable tools – not just stories – to BECOME confident. A fugitive of the C-suite at a Fortune 100 company, she has coached hundreds of women in business, which has given her insight as to what – structurally, systemically, and socially – is and isn’t serving women and leaders within an organization. Maintaining some semblance of sanity in her different roles of wife, mother, and business owner successfully is an ongoing challenge… in whatever free time she has, she enjoys reading and wine guzzling, is an avid cheese enthusiast, a hotel snob, and a reluctant peloton rider.
