Ready to Take Your Professional Life and Leadership to the Next Level? Become The Most Powerful You!
In reading a great deal about leadership today, and interviewing top leadership experts, I’m recognizing a disappointing trend – that the general concept and understanding of leadership has become so vague and watered down that most of it isn’t helpful at all, and it’s not suited to a majority of women who want to lead differently.
The Most Powerful You training goes deeper. It helps you recognize and understand more about yourself as a person and the leader you want to be, then take empowering, transformative actions to operate in your role in a way that takes your leadership and your career higher, making the impact you dream to. If you truly want to help your team, staff and organization become “The Most Powerful We,” this is the right training for you.

Right now, we’re opening the enrollment of my private (1:1) coaching training program called The Amazing Career Coach Certification, which is a 17-week, hands-on training program that certifies female coaches in my proprietary 16-step career growth model, which is perfect for coaches who want a deeper dive into learning powerful, proven coaching frameworks, concepts, and skills that teach the 16 most essential steps to building an amazing career that your clients need to know.

And through the program, you’ll get access to a powerful Small Business Acceleration program called The Rapid Growth Academy, delivered by my friend and colleague, award-winning business growth expert Matthew Pollard.

“For the first time ever, Facebook had a decrease in users to their platform. And there’s new platforms that are emerging, like TikTok that are just more fun to be on. So you just shouldn’t be married to one platform being the be-all and end-all for the next 40 years.” — Andrew Gottlieb [0:07:46]
“What’s happening on TikTok right now is exactly what happened to you (Kathy) on LinkedIn in 2014. It’s really a supply and demand equation that’s going. There’s not enough content creators on the app right now. But the number of users who are downloading TikTok is just skyrocketing.” — Andrew Gottlieb [0:11:34]
“You have a unique moment in time to capitalize on building a follower base on TikTok right now.” — Andrew Gottlieb [0:11:59]
“Rein in your FOMO. And just be aware that eventually over time, Tik Tok is going to have an older demographic.” — Andrew Gottlieb [0:15:46]
“I think when you have a good reputation, you have good branding, and good marketing that’s getting your business out there in a really genuine and authentic manner, it allows the business to come to you versus you having to be on the hunt, going door to door.” — Andrew Gottlieb [0:29:30]
