Women's Empowerment

We as women are more than Just a Pretty Face… we are unique and powerful creatures of the world, and being that we need to embrace ourselves and others.

We wear many different hats and are Jane’s of all trades. Our focus often is on others first then if we have the energy ourselves. Yet we often go through life struggling with our own empowerment – we climb as a sole unit rather than with others. We need to celebrate with each other how wonderful we are- how empowered we are and celebrate how we get through our challenges together verses alone.

Women’s Empowerment includes:

  • Authenticity
  • Self-Awareness
  • Personal Power
  • Moving beyond the Junk in Your Trunk
  • Understanding what your needs are
  • Shifting Perspectives
  • Being Heard and Seen
  • Resiliency

Studies demonstrate the vast majority of women find themselves unfulfilled and underpowered in either the workplace or home life. If a woman is empowered at home – they bring that to the work place in the form of personal power, influence, communication, leadership, adaptability and so much more.

As women we hold down a variety of roles yet if we let these role run our life they can overpower us. Does this sound familiar, or have you ever made a list of all you do?

Meet Lauran Star (yes me)

I am a full time thriving business owner, accomplished author, international speaker, a faculty member in the New Hampshire University System, a mom of three, competitive girls youth lacrosse and soccer coach, boy youth soccer coach, mom of … theater, baseball and basketball, a wife of 16+ years, in my off time I take on the role of doctor, cook, cleaner, peace keeper, homework goddess, dog walker, school volunteer, shopper, a best friend, and a supportive aunt to over twenty nieces and nephews.

The point is women wear many hats and can shift those hats at any given minute. Some do it seamlessly while others, well let’s just say they are overwhelmed. At the end of the day, while others desire to toss the towel in and sleep I am left reminding myself that all the above is my choice. I place all that on me. Why? Simply put – I am Empowered.

Women’s Leadership Development:

Leadership is a choice however development is not. To be a successful leader, regardless of gender one needs to understand the skills required as well as how to inspire, motivate and raise the bar for all around you.

Women in Leadership:

  • Women today are the primary breadwinners (according to the 2010 United States Department of Labor, over 58% of all the women are the breadwinners and 78% of women are now in the workforce full time) thus organizations are aggressively seeking to diversify their leadership teams – providing the female perspective. That being said however the struggle falls to how to develop the genders in leadership.
  • Women struggle to gain a real perspective on how to get ahead, what is expected, how to build strong alliances, and find work/life strategies. This lack of knowledge is creating a “one step forward two steps back” mentality as the tools required to succeed are hushed, hidden and at time out of reach.
  • Leadership development is not one size or gender fits all as our leadership styles and authenticity must be taken into account.
  • Organizations with diverse leadership are more innovating and have a higher return on training investments than those who do not.
  • Increased job satisfaction and retention go hand in hand with leadership development.

In the end, if you wish to get ahead you need to have someone in your corner.
