About the Book
Buy now in:
Kate and Fiona have written a practical guide to help develop your internal strength, a solid emotional core and a deep sense of core confidence to face the fear for any challenge in your life. When I was reading the book, I felt like I was having a conversation with the authors and sitting through a personal mentoring session. What I discovered, is that I already have confidence, I just need to use it in a way that serves my purpose and see past the barriers that I perceive to be holding me back. Coaching your team to discover their inner core confidence is the best way to unlock a high-performing team. As a manager, I gave a copy of the book to my entire team, as a model to develop their core confidence and take them well into their careers.
I highly recommend the book for women at any stage in their career, but especially if you feel stuck or like something is holding you back. I know I will continue to refer to it when my own fears stop me from rising.
I’m feeling super inspired right now & ready to face my fears with confidence. Thank you Kate Boorer & Fiona Pearman! Adore everything you do to inspire women.
An added bonus: being able to engage in stimulating conversations with friends around the challenges they’re facing in their career and provide them with useful guidance and support.>
A must read for any woman who is part-way into her career!
In an attempt to get to the bottom of my disatisfaction, I dedicated an entire day to reading the book and doing the self assessment activities. At the end of Chapter 1 the penny dropped…I assessed my career values and the types of roles and environments where I had historically thrived. It became so clear that the role I was in did not speak to any of my career values, in fact it was the polar opposite of what I needed to thrive and succeed. It took several months of re-visiting the book, along with greater clarity and confidence to take aligned action. The book gave me the impetus to honour my values, skills and future self and knowing the context I was in could not provide what I needed, I left. Core Confidence was the mentor I needed and gave me the courage to make tough decisions.
I would highly recommend the book to anyone wanting to create a more meaningful, authentic and aligned professional and personal life!
I resonated with every word and loved the self coaching suggestions.
There were a few ‘aha’ moments and things to make note of for future reference.
It was an easy read and I managed it in a day!
Core Confidence is a book written by Kate Boorer & Fiona Pearman. It examines the reasons (systemic, bias, practical and personal confidence barriers) that contribute to why professional women are often perceived as less confident than men.
