From Invisible to Unforgettable
I hear it from my clients all the time. I know what it’s like to feel like you’re supposed to be the loudest person in the room in order to be heard or get noticed. I used to worry that my natural introversion meant that I would never be a force in the world around me.
“I traded my authenticity and being real & honest for “being nice”.
I wanted to be seen and acknowledged for the time, effort, hard work, and contribution I put into my work. But, part of me did not want that attention on me. Unknowingly, I made myself invisible, and did not open up or show who I really was. Subconsciously, I shrunk, got smaller around others, and tried hard to not ruffle any feathers.
I was raised to be polite, pleasant, non-confrontational, not too opinionated, not too wordy, and always “good” or “nice.” That was a perfect fit for my natural quiet nature. I didn’t speak up when I wanted to. I apologized with my words, my energy, and my body. I traded my authenticity and being real & honest for “being nice”. I did not know how to stand out authentically and powerfully.
“I learned to love and acknowledge my introversion and unique qualities and become a bold self-leader.”
I’m living proof. Being a bold self-leader does not require pretending to be someone you are not. “Bold” does not mean loud or assertive and “leader” does not mean managing others well. Leadership is less about managing others and more about self-management.
I learned to grow into and OWN my inner leader. I believe this is the key to unlocking your personal power so that you live your life and do your work with authenticity, purpose, presence, and power.
I learned to love and acknowledge my introversion and unique qualities and become a bold self-leader.
I learned to love what makes me, Me. I still like my time alone. I know that’s not going to change. It’s how I charge my batteries. But, I am no longer committed to the thoughts that had me behave in ways that made me appear invisible. I’ve gone from being invisible to unforgettable. And I don’t say that with a puffed out chest out of vanity to brag about myself. I say that because…
A person with great presence is unforgettable.

As a leader, Social and Emotional Intelligence is a MUST to develop higher levels of leadership, self-understanding, and influence on how you impact others. The greater Social and Emotional Intelligence you have, the more confidence, personal power, self-awareness, and agency you have.
The Social and Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® is an assessment that identifies an individual’s social and emotional intelligence strengths as well as areas for growth and development. It is the most comprehensive, statistically-reliable, scientifically-validated instrument on the market today. And, it is just one of the tools I use with my clients (incredibly valuable in and of itself and included all my programs). Interested in learning more about it? Schedule a call with me to learn more.
