According to Eleni Kelakos, too many women spend too much time hiding in the wings at work and in the world. As a result, their wisdom and big ideas don’t reach the people who need to hear them.

She will share just how to Claim the Stage so you can make the difference you were born to make.

We dive into:

  • The Three Pitfalls (pleasing, politeness, perfection) that can hold women back.
  • How to manage the Lies that Bind (limiting beliefs) that can make you second guess yourself.
  • The Seven phases of the Claim the Stage cycle that take us from the wings to the spotlight.
  • The importance of showing up, stepping up and speaking up when it matters.
