The relationship we have with ourselves is the single longest partnership we have with anyone in our lives and yet we invest little to no time, energy and attention in ensuring it is a healthy one.

When it comes to the challenges, obstacles and opportunities we all face as part of a 24/7, “always on”, high-change environment of life and business, self-talk can be our biggest enemy or our most powerful ally.

For women this is especially relevant as study after study shows that women lack self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief at various stages throughout their working lives.

Women regularly experience self-doubt from an internal struggle with identity and stereotypes (creating role-conflicts like motherhood vs career, woman vs leader), and gendered life events (including pregnancy, infertility, returning from parental leave, and peri/menopause) leading to negative impacts on our quality of life, career success, and wellbeing.

If you want to BE and DO more in your life you’ll benefit from developing your ability to connect more deeply with your “self”; build your confidence and self-esteem; own your full potential; and embrace vulnerability and discomfort to stretch into new opportunities or make the most of the ones you have in your hands right now.

“The most important conversation is the one you have with yourself.”

Kate Billing


This edition of Tune In: Unlocking the Power of Self-talk is for women who want to:

  • Quieten self-doubt and negative self-talk
  • Change the conversation with their Inner Critic
  • Access their Inner Coach
  • Increase their sense of personal power; and
  • Better support their mental and emotional wellbeing.

Tune In: Unlocking the Power of Self-talk provides an opportunity to increase your awareness of the way the brain is wired and the constant stream of ‘chatter’ it creates between your ears. We’ll explore the negative impact this has if left unchecked and the power it offers as a guide and self-coaching tool when harnessed.

This workshop brings women together as a learning community to share their experiences and insights as they explore their internal dialogue, the impact it’s having, and how to tune in and take charge of it.

The spacious 2-day conversational design allows you to reflect on, connect with and share your own experience; to learn from the experience of others; and to contextualise new mental models, tools, and practices within your own reality. PLUS you’ll leave with a self-set action plan and an Accountability Buddy for support.

Day One runs from 10.00am to 5.00pm and Day Two is from 9.00am to 3.00pm.  This creates space for you to have a stress free start to the experience with more time in the morning of our first day and then time to integrate learning at the end of our second day, rather than heading into rush hour traffic.
