79 | Cultivating a strong sense of self at work with Kara Diane

Welcome to the show!  Today I’m talking with ex-engineer and current Coach/Consultant Kara.  This conversation is deep, honest, and full of femininity and soul.  I personally loved it, and I hope you enjoy it just as much.


Listen in and you’ll hear us talk all about:


  • Kara’s definition of confidence
  • The split between one’s work person (how we ‘should’ show up) vs. one’s true self
  • How to change our default patterns of behavior
  • How Kara uses mindfulness to grow, develop, and build confidence
  • Gaining distance & feeling more peaceful during triggering situations
  • How being in a hypermasculine environment was challenging to Kara
  • How to get in touch with your true self
  • How to build confidence & uncover your talents and gifts
  • The struggle & the power in recognizing your own gifts
  • Intellectualizing and thinking about something vs. deeply feeling it and tuning into bodily wisdom
