SHELLEY HAYES | The Key to EPIC EmpowHERment Lies in Your Ability to ASK

Shelley HayesShelley Hayes, Chief Empowerment Officer of Empowerment Inc. will facilitate an intimate breakout discussion on the Key to EPIC EmpowHERment:  Your ability to ASK for what you want to get what you need.

We hear it over and over again:  Show Up, Stand Up, Speak Up, Lean In, Believe in Yourself!  Is any of this really sinking in? Are we masters of moving ourselves forward through our ability to clearly, confidently and concisely ASK for what we want in order to get what we need or are we still floundering?  And where does the difference lie?  How do we move from one side of the line to the other?  What behaviours are holding us back?  What pitfalls do we fall into repeatedly?  Shelley will lead a conversation about EPIC EmpowHERment, connecting us back to our natural state of assertiveness by listening to our instincts and intuition to prepare us for our next powHERful ASK – and the next, and the next, and then next… 

Join Shelley and a small group of local #YYC PowHERhouses for a PowHERPOD session on Thursday, April 12 from noon-1:30 pm at the HAWORTH Showroom, Fifth Avenue Place, East Tower, 425 – 1st Street SW, Calgary.  A light lunch will be supplied.  This mini-mastermind provides the opportunity for our WOMEN BUILT2SCALE Accelerator participants to deep-dive into a particular topic with a focused conversation to deliver not only tangible and implementable outcomes but also budding new relationships with like-minded women on the same scaling-track you are on!


Three common challenges Shelley often hears from new and experienced female leaders are:

  1. How do I overcome the Imposter Syndrome and lack of confidence I know holds me back in my life?
  2. How can I learn to be an authentic, assertive leader?  How do I demonstrate accountability and practice holding necessary boundaries in order to be an effective leader?
  3. I have (or am ready for) a seat at the table, how do I learn to trust myself in order to embody the leader I want to be?
