Building Resilience

Join the Yes You Can business webinars with Fiona Bradley of FB Training and Consulting Ltd, as she provides you with essential tips and techniques to grow in confidence and build resilience both professionally and personally.

For female small business owners, there is a constant need to find equilibrium between a demanding career and a healthy personal life. Assuming you can put the two on an even scale, though, is deceiving. Whether you’re a solopreneur or employ 25 workers, the pull of business demands is ever-present. To be successful in both arenas doesn’t mean you have equal hours at home and in the business, it means you have found a rhythm that fulfills both sides, and a confidence to communicate this across your professional and personal relationships.

Join Fiona as she provides you with essential tips and techniques that help you create more harmony, build your confidence and increase resilience as you grow your business through the following areas:  

  • Understanding entrepreneurial competencies
  • Building confidence, presence and understanding vulnerability
  • Manging both your personal life and running your own business
  • Handling set backs

Setting Realistic Goals

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road can take you there”, Alice in Wonderland 

Join the FINAL FREE Yes You Can business webinar of 2021 on Goals- Setting Realistic Goals to Take your Business to the Next Level led by Lisa Strutt.

We want to encourage you to think big whilst also setting achievable goals, being accountable, overcoming stumbling blocks and having a success mindset to prepare for future growth. 

Whether you want to build an empire or open your own bespoke boutique, your destination is your starting point. It’s your Big Hairy Audacious Goal (or BHAG, as Jim Collins calls it in Beyond Entrepreneurship).

In this practical session, we will look at:

  • Your vision
  • Your current reality 
  • The gap in between

Once you are clear on where you are heading and why, you can figure out how you will get there. Then you can be super-focused on tactics and specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timebound goals, not just for yourself but also your team.

During this session we will:

  • Explore the obstacles that might stand in the way of your success: from self-sabotaging mind chatter to challenges from external forces and internal weaknesses.
  • Learn techniques for overcoming stumbling blocks, by building your mental fitness and emotional agility.

You won’t succeed in business on your own, so we will help you name your most important relationships, why they matter and share tips on how to strengthen them.
