Lead from Intuition. Act with Influence.



Breakthrough in your Career as a Leader of Influence.

The Gutsy Leadership System is a proven leadership curriculum focused on professional development, specifically around career leadership, how-to business strategies and communication skills coupled with personal development success principles focused on self-leadership and mindset shifts to accelerate professional goals.

The Top 3 Success Principles of Gutsy Leadership:

# 1 Be  clear on how you are being perceived, and how you relate to others.
# 2 Be willing to act on impulses of thought when they show up in the face of the main fears holding you back today (the fear of rejection, fear of looking foolish, fear of failure). These are not random; you are being called upon to GROW.
# 3 Take 100% responsibility for your life and results.
It's this self-awareness component that's not often emphasized in professional development and yet where we find the greatest shifts made in leadership levels and impact. The how-to business advice on what you should DO typically overshadows who to BE, that mindful element of listening to others and tapping into your intuition. Yet it's that self-reflection gene and aligned energy which when you tap into, accounts for 99% of what you create in your life, not the DOING.  .


The core curriculum of Gutsy Leadership found in all live or online programs features two major components: (1) the professional development modules focused on career leadership, how-to business strategies and communication skills and (2) the personal development success principles modules focused on self-leadership and mindset shifts. Together, these proven professional and personal strategies when implemented step-by-step, will be shown to create breakthrough results for you in your career development including improving your personal relationships - guaranteed.

Whether you are an intrapreneur inside an organization, running a practice or have a small business as an entrepreneur, The Gutsy Leadership System TM teaches how to make a mindset shift about your value as a professional expert alongside delivering a practical proven set of leadership and communication tools with spiritual guidance to align with your expert value and highest potential serving others. It will stretch you outside your comfort zone taking manageable steps towards a new level of how others perceive you. It’s about owning your authority, finding your voice, reinventing yourself to a level where you never have to be weighed down about your marketability, value you deliver and self-worth – ever again.

You will be shown EXACTLY what to start doing–and stop doing to own your authority confidently and attracting opportunity. It is all step-by-step, not overwhelming theory and feel-good advice, taking you in every direction. This program offers simple, concrete HOW-TO tools on what to do, not concepts. But before you can implement any leadership education, the truth is, you need to change how you see yourself in your career or business and move out of your own way.
