Workshops For Businesses And Organizations
Confidence is not a dirty word- humans with higher self esteem are more likely to contribute their ideas, be creative and communicate their needs.
Some of the most precious solutions and opinions can be held by people who lack the courage, tenacity and resilience to step up and be heard and leaders must do all they can to encourage and empower their teams to put their best foot forward.
When we value ourselves, we value our work and when we know how to bounce back after getting knocked down or say what needs to be said when remaining quiet is safer, our workplaces can begin to truly thrive.
Our minds have become slaves to the increasing expectations and demands of time, money, resources, attention, for what’s next and keeping up with appearances.
We’ve lost control of our thinking which has led to a drastic increase is mental health complaints and afflictions.
In order to create thriving people, lives and workplaces we MUST reclaim our thinking, learn to take responsibility for our mental state and increase our emotional sensitivity.
Katie’s signature talk where she reveals her story from severe body image and self esteem issues leading to bulimia and 125 kgs of lost and reclaimed weight to loving the skin she’s in and accepting herself.
Society has told us that if we are not a certain size, shape or colour then we are imperfect and ought to try and fit the mould. The deep striving towards perfection has created an epidemic of women who are so afraid to be themselves and as a result we are deeply suffering.
The weight loss and cosmetics industries are making billions of dollars playing into our insecurities.
It’s time to rise! Learn what it takes to let go of negative thinking, say no to perfectionism and learn to love your body.
Women have long been subjected to the high levels of expectations of our personal appearances.
We are told to dress up in makeup, have our hair done and be polished at all times. Hours are spent in the mirror, at salons and at clothing stores in the attempt to perfect ourselves.
Our brains, our capacity for intelligence and our characters are secondary to the way we look and as a result, our society is suffering . The rise of female power comes not from degrading men or taking away the things that makes us feel good about ourselves but about realising our powerful and incredible minds.
This is all about empowering women to own their intelligence and value their brains over their looks.
Motivational And Inspirational Keynotes
Facing fear, doubt and shame can be enough to turn even the happiest camper into a negative Nellie. Once we include pressure, expectations and our whole range of feelings it’s no wonder that so many of us are struggling to feel happy and content.
Happy people are better workers, have healthier relationships and enjoy a better quality of life than those who are not.
Seeking happiness is not the be all and end all. Sitting in a hut on a mountain top meditating may be fine for monks but in every day life we face people, triggers and obstacles.
Learning to master our emotions means that we can traverse the world with confidence that we are capable to handle whatever life throw at us.
Your words shook me to my core , from as far back as I can remember I have hated my body. My self view is so distorted by the media and child hood bullies that I can’t even see what I really look like and take pictures or stare in the mirror to make sure I look ok. And feel like I need to apologise to people for not being thin enough. Who the bloody hell gave me that message. To sit in a room with over 200 other women and see most of them raise their hand that they too hated their body made me grasp the fact that we are doing something wrong. Thank you for casting a torch on my self disappointment and showing me it is conditioning not the fact I am “hateable” my body is perfectly fine and functional and can laugh and dance and has grown healthy babies .
You are spreading such wise words ! Thank you
So I attended seven sisters , with my blood sister and my daughter and all the other beautiful sisters . I let the universe guide me to the workshops I or my daughter needed.
And guided to Katie we were. Charlotte is 14 and right in that zone of worrying about how she looks and how others perceive her. And you spoke as if right to her heart, as here was this total stranger, strong and funny, beautiful and sensitive saying words she at 14 has said to herself and aloud to us.
Charlotte is passionate, eccentric, can’t wait to be old enough to have a van and drive the festival circuit. She’s planning her own business, she sings , loves music, the 50s and 60s, walks to her own beat, wears what she wants and her doctor tells her if only she knew how amazing and special she is. But self doubt sneaks in and she slips into a dark little world and we weather the storm with her. And now we have Katie’s words to help even more, and bring more reality than it just being mum saying it .
She’s been home from seven sisters and is still talking about what she experienced , the business planning is full steam ahead and she has asked me if I will work for her.
Positive women , saying positive real things to our girls, will in turn make them positive women.
Thankyou Katie from the bottom of my heart, I truly believe you set the groundwork for the amazing festival Charlotte and ultimately I had
I had the amazing opportunity to be in Katie’s workshop at the “Seven Sisters Festival”. It truly was life changing. Your zest for life and your abundance of love not only for us, but also for yourself bubbled over into all of us, as we started to transform the ways we interact and see our own bodies.
I felt your journey deeply. The exercise we worked through opened up our true vulnerability as we shared with those near us, “the loving words we deeply wished we could hear” from family and others. At first I could barely speak and instead came a stream of tears. Finally as the words began to come, I felt a huge weight being lifted, along with the judgement and the shame I have carried for so long.
I have released that crazy chattering voice that focussed on putting me down and in its place I feel a real sense of inner peace, love and gratitude for both this “ole body of mine”, and for those “who’s love and true acceptance I will never receive”.
Without a doubt one of the most powerful, life changing exercises. Feeling very blessed to have crossed paths and I look forward to catching up again very soon.
