Cracking the Confidence Code – What Women Need to Know
In this candid, motivational speech, Claire Shipman offers up the most compelling and surprising new research from her latest book, The Confidence Code, which suggests that confidence may well be the missing ingredient for women today who are eager to find both success and satisfaction at work and at home.
Women are achieving unprecedented success in public and private sectors. But still, there’s a dark shadow of doubt that women can nurture—doubt about their ideas, their abilities, their right to rule at the top.
Inspiring, insightful and persuasive, Cracking the Confidence Code will leave the audience understanding that by acting on their best instincts and by daring to be authentic, women can feel the transformative power of a confident life.
