Radically Authentic Leadership @Factory Berlin Görlitzer Park
How did Melissa Andrada go from being a shy intern who never said a word during meetings to a Chief Operations Officer winning over the hearts of VCs and helping raise $1.6 million to a CEO nurturing a multi-continent business that embodies her purpose and values?
Melissa will share her own personal practice of transformation and liberation as a queer immigrant woman of color, alongside her learnings from leaders at Google, Unilever, Skype, Slack, Lyft and Discovery — how an innovation of self and sexuality have led her to the most profoundly interesting and creative social innovations.
Melissa would love to empower you on your journey — to bring out the most powerful essence of self to be taken seriously in the boardroom, get the promotion or support you need, speak your truth on a public stage or even simply talk to the guy or girl you’ve been crushing on at the coffee shop.
She’ll share memorable soulful stories, practical tips, and tools to uncover confidence and executive presence in yourself, your team and your community with a focus on:
Developing your inner mentor/leader — the most powerful essence of self, a powerful antidotes to the inner critic
Building a self love and resilience toolkit for navigating systemic oppression and micro aggressions
What people have said
“I found your class powerful and you are truly inspiring. I admired your ability to speak up for yourself when something’s not right, your confidence and everything you say, you say with such passion.”
Who this is for — this is for people of all genders, racial backgrounds, sexual orientations, nationalities, religions
People who have gotten feedback that they don’t come off as confident
People who feel nervous interrupting, pitching, asking for what they want
People who want to have more influence in their organisation & be taken seriously by executives
