Want to stand out as a leader who is
authentic, effective, and gets results?
Lead with Confidence is a 3-month coaching program to support you in defining who you are as a leader, understanding how to be effective and successful so you can fully step into your power and confidence, without sacrificing your authenticity or wellness.
You want to make a difference, add value, and have an impact on your team.
But more than anything, you just want to feel like you don’t have to fake it any more and can succeed as a leader.
Look down the road a year, three or five;
what if you are still approaching leadership,
your career and life the same way?
Having worked with leaders to help them grow their confidence, develop their teams, and be more effective, this much I know:
- You don’t have enough time to get everything done, let alone time to think.
- You are doing the best you can, but you feel like stress, emotional insecurity and self-doubt are holding you back.
- You don’t have the support you need or have other women to look up to.
- You are tired of feeling minimized and deflated.
- You struggle with selling your ideas and being heard.
If this sounds like you, you’re in the right place.
In fact, this is the before story of many leaders I’ve worked with.
As a leader and entrepreneur myself, I get it, really I do.
You are good at your job or you wouldn’t have this opportunity as a leader. You want to prove to them and to yourself that you can succeed. Because of this, you work hard, but every day you are frustrated that you aren't having the impact you want. Really, you are living on adrenaline, fear, and the drive to prove yourself. You are constantly questioning, second guessing decisions, or stuck in indecision.
You don’t feel like you are making an impact, adding value, or becoming the leader you want to be. Even if you had time to read leadership books, listen to podcasts, or get a mentor you don’t even know where to start.
If you want to stand out as a leader, be respected, and add value; you have to put yourself and your learning first. If not, you are just managing.
IN SHORT: You want to feel confident in your ability to lead.
I'm here to tell you it's possible.
I’m Kim-Elisha and I work with new leaders like you who want to create high performing teams, make a difference, and be more effective; without sacrificing their authenticity and well-being.
I know what you’re going through.
Before I started my own company, I was a successful manager who worked my way from Engineering into Organization Development. While working full time; I pursued my Masters Degree and then my coaching certification. Most weeks I worked 50+ hours with calls at 5am or 10pm with my international team. I commuted 3 hours a day. I got shit done and was well rewarded for it. Being a leader is an honorable role, yet demanding both personally and professionally.
Fast Forward to Today
Let’s be honest here- you and I both know that your current approach isn’t working. It's not going to get easier. Every day there is more stress, conflict, and tougher challenges to face. You probably think you should be able to figure this out or just work harder.
Maybe you’ve listened to a couple of podcasts, read an article, or one of the current best sellers on Amazon around leadership; yet, you’ve found yourself still facing the same insecurities and not moving forward.
The fact of the matter is...
- 75% of workers who voluntarily left their jobs did so because of their manager. We don’t have the leaders that inspire us and that we can trust.
- Work isn’t always a safe space where we can explore ourselves, test boundaries and truly learn what it means to effectively lead.
- Workplaces are filled with strong personalities, criticism and politics.
Want to know what's missing?
The confidence that only comes from knowing your strengths as a leader, the value only you can provide, and the contribution you can make.
The confidence, clarity and certainty that comes from knowing how to lead through difficult situations be. When you know that, you can walk into a room, make decisions, and lead every day.
And when you show up authentically, powerfully and on purpose with your team, your manager, and your peers amazing things will happen.
- Feeling sharper, connecting the dots quicker and coming up with the right answers to questions.
- Being on top of your priorities without putting in 10 and 12 hour days.
- Getting more of the right stuff done faster and better.
- Knowing what you can do to create a sustainable culture that improves productivity, delivery, quality and delight.
- Being an advocate for your team and knowing how to motivate each person so they can do their best work.
- Pushing through frustration and stepping up for the right thing versus the easy thing.
- Being the leader people follow, not leave.
- Taking time to step out of the noise of the day to day and getting the larger view you need to make the right decisions.
- Getting out of bed each morning with enthusiasm ready to welcome whatever comes your way.
- To speak your truth to leadership and your team, unapologetically you.
- To feel the difference this makes in all areas of your life!
But you only get these kind of results when you start investing in yourself to gain the confidence you need to lead.
Together, we will work to define your purpose as a leader, your personal style of leadership and definition of success. Building a foundation of being, understanding and skills you can grow from the rest of your life. I want to see you leading with confidence, certainty, and clarity!
For over 15 years, I’ve been immersed in leadership development and spiritual exploration. My girl friend’s joke is that we should wear shirts that say “This personality is expensive!” I don’t want you to keep throwing money away and suffering like I did. So I’ve put together Lead with Confidence.

Our 3 Months Together
At the beginning of our time together we will have one in depth coaching session to explore the story you have been living and where you are on your leadership journey. Together we will craft a clear vision for you to live into and explore during our time together. Then every week you will be provided content, suggested activities, and reading to facilitate the journey ahead. At the end of our time together we will celebrate what you have accomplished and build a new plan for what’s next for you as a leader. A special note: the map we build charts the territory that will be traversed, but not the path. The path will rise to meet you with each step that is taken.
During our first session we will survey the landscape and tell the story you’ve been living. Together we will envision a new way to lead. You will craft your own ritual or celebration to mark your commitment, intention and agreements for your learning ahead.
You First. Leader Second
In truth; our power, our authenticity, our bravery comes from knowing who we are and the willingness to take risks. The endurance, resilience and tenacity to lead comes from leading generative lives. Together we will make sure that you are putting yourself first, living and leading from your values, and practicing good self-care.
Build the Foundation
We’ll explore the concept of leadership and what it means to lead. You’ll come to understand what leadership means to you and who you are as a leader. You’ll get clear on your leadership orientation so that you have a compass to guide you through leadership challenges ahead.
You’ll have a clear understanding of what success is as a leader. Crafting your own path to development and creating your own measuring stick and vision to guide your action.
Now is when we get strategic and practical. We’ll look at the context and culture your leading in. Together we’ll craft a new approach to your day, week, month and year as a leader; so you have the positive impact you want.
Build Your Capacity as a Leader
As a leader there are knowledge, skills and abilities you’ll need to lead well. Depending on your level of leadership and experience these requirements change. Based on the feedback you gathered and your own interest; we’ll take a deep dive into different areas such as: Presence, Communication Skills, Power, and more.
Intent is Everything
As we start our time together, I will invite you to set an intention. It’s the same intention I set when creating this program. That you participate so fully in this experience that you gain lasting resources that support your personal sovereignty and the life-long delivery of your leadership gifts. That after 3 months you have built a solid foundation & understanding of leadership that is authentic to you, knowing how to answer the many questions that arise, and move forward with the confidence, tools and understanding to lead.
Agreements are more powerful than expectations.
During this 3 month one-on-one coaching intensive, you will experience rich and deep transformational development. Every step of the process I will be there as your coach, mentor and teacher.
My clients work with me because they know I understand the crossroads they are at and trust me to hold space for them while they explore their fears and take risks in a safe space that doesn’t impact them professionally. No matter what anger, doubt, and fear arises. I provide a strong and loving container for each to be looked at. I manifest braveness, authenticity, responsibility, confidence, and gutsiness in change makers all around me. Those who are willing to really invest in themselves, face their fears, and transform old beliefs will create a life that is true and the impact to match it.
To achieve this change, we couple intention with agreements on how we will each show up for the journey ahead. Together, we will vow to:
- Build trust and create a safe space to learn.
- Be present and show up fully.
- Trust each of us as an expert in our own lives.
- Challenge blind spots.
- Share the raw, naked and honest truth- with heart.
- Be responsible and accountable for commitments made.
- Take full responsibility for the results we want.
- Practice compassion and try again.
- Surrender control and predictability.
- We fully trust mystery to take us where we are meant to go. Learning to be with ambiguity and chaos.
