Meet Bernadette...Executive Coach, Trainer, Speaker

My Philosophy: Life is 80% mindset/20% skillset
but few talk about it let alone work on it.

After having spent decades working tirelessly to climb the corporate ladder and achieve the power, prosperity, and position I craved, I learned a critical lesson that transformed my entire life, work, and mindset.

That is…

Traditional measurement of one’s success has always been that skill set is the #1 priority for hiring managers and HR leaders, and therefore employees.

The longer the resume with a flood of accolades, certifications, and titles, the better.

Yet, in my 14 years of coaching women and men around the world, I’ve found that rarely does someone get hired, promoted, or rewarded for the skills they have versus the person they are.

Sadly, too many high potential and strong contributing professionals lack what it really takes to succeed!

Confidence, empowerment, self-awareness, boldness, and courage that lives within their mindset.

It became crystal clear that in every aspect of life and work, it takes an 80% focus on MINDSET and just 20% on SKILL SET, if someone wants to be a true leader and success at work and life.

What is my role in this?

To empower my clients to discover, confront, and shed what is holding them back, so they create and accelerate the goals and riches they deserve.

In turn, teams and businesses win as well.

How can I be so confident that one can transform in such a way?

Because, I did!

In late 2008, I was fired by my mentor of 12 years from my 25-year corporate career.

With a pink slip in my hand and the words ‘You’re fired”  ringing in my ears, I lost everything including my confidence, self-belief and overall identity.

What further destroyed me was the realization of my ignorance and blindness to the real reason I was let go.

It was simple:

I was the ultimate corporate bitch.

The kind employees feared and bosses didn’t want to deal with. It was at that moment, I made a decision.

I would invest in my own personal growth and mindset development, while my twenty-five years of expertise and skill set talked for itself.

After all, it wasn’t my inability to do my job or even produce significant results.

It was complete failure to trust, treat other with compassion, empathy, and respect.

I was terrified to have my peers and bosses to see how insecure and intimidated I was, so I pushed it deep down inside and put on a mask of a know it all, demanding tyrant.

Sadly, there are many so-called leaders out there operating the same way: thinking they are irreplaceable because of what they know or can do…

That is so far from the truth.

PLEASE, hear me.

Ultimately, businesses, bosses, and team members do not want those type of individuals around.

They can’t afford it. They don’t deserve it. They won’t tolerate forever.


Throughout my journey, which I refer to as ‘excavating my soul’, I discovered who I was, who I wanted to be, and what it meant to truly be a leader, a powerhouse.

In 2010, I decided to pen my story and all of the raw, ugly, inspiring, and transformational parts of it.

Unable to wait for it to be finished, I started Shedding the Bitch® Radio so I could help women immediately to make the decision to change how they were pursuing their goals and dreams.

In 2011, my first book, Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting from Bitch to Rich in Life and Business, was published and available to anyone who may be struggling being the type of individual and leader others want around, and who will even walk into a fire for.

Today, I partner with HR leaders, team managers and corporate professionals to transform themselves, their teams, and the business, so everyone takes part in achieving massive success.

What's better than a win-win for everyone!
