Agressive bitch or too girly to succeed?

It has been an interesting day!

I decided to be bolder with my messages and tell it ‘like it is’ based on the many thousands of women that I have had the honour of coaching over the past 10 years.

We had a wild response! Thank you. We also had two people unsubscribe because they didn’t like the swear word and one complained about the American spellings. However, the majority loved it -edgy you said and progressive.

If you didn’t see the email today I have copied it below for your interest.

The world is moving on …are you moving with it?

More importantly, are you joining us in September for a wild time?

Let’s face it…

As women we now have more responsibilities than EVER before..

As women we often put others’ needs before our own needs.

As women we have to manage the kids, the career the finances and our health,

…. And always…

….We put ourselves last.

It’s crazy.

The trouble is we don’t create clear boundaries.

That’s because we feel we don’t have the ‘right!’

And what’s the result of all this internal conflict?

We’re often overwhelmed and exhausted by everything.

Yet, nurturing is in our DNA. We’re natural team leaders, peace-keepers and community-builders.

Yet, women in particular, feel like failures if they don’t deal with everything.

This can be a huge barrier to progress at work.

That’s because companies want strong leadership.

I know from listening to many thousands of you that you feel the conflict.


Damned if you do and damned if you don’t


No wonder you can be unfairly labelled an “aggressive bitch” if you’re too strong or

called “girly” when you aren’t seen as being strong.

This double bind confuses us all on an unconscious level.

Before you know it, we’ve become ISOLATED and INEFFECTIVE, surrendouring our feminine power!

However you don’t have to surrendour, feel overwhelmed or feel guilty. You can be powerful, authentic and have all the time for all the people you care about – including you!

So, if you’re a woman who…

  • Is frustrated and exhausted with the pressures of your life but can’t seem to find an easier way to manage it all.
  • Slogs through your days just checking things off your ‘TO DO’ list while secretly fearing you’ll never even scratch the surface of your true potential.
  • Has no idea how to be truly powerful at work when the culture and politics dictate you be something you’re not!
  • Has a lingering void inside you haven’t been able to fill no matter which goals you reach.
  • Wishes you knew exactly where to turn to for a clear path on how to make this puzzle of life work and show you specific actions to get there.
  • Actually enjoys a level of success (professionally or personally) yet STILL senses something is missing…

…you’re in the perfect place RIGHT NOW!

That’s because you can join other wonderful and inspired women at a landmark seminar.

This is a seminar that has been presented in Boston, USA and Singapore. As well as being presented in London.

This is a seminar that has been presented internally to Lloyds, Barclays, Vodafone, Serco, B & Q and EDF to name a few

And this seminar has been reported on BBC Radio Four and on American Radio. And been mentioned in the Daily Telegraph.

This seminar is titled the Authentic Leadership Seminar.

“… Inspirational seminar…”

“Thank you for a very engaging and enlightening two days.

You are a real inspiration to all of us. Keep spreading the message!” Katie Ledger, Channel 5 News, ITN

At the Authentic Leadership Seminar you get 2 days of high end coaching from me, Tracey Carr.

Why should you listen to me?

Well, I’m an International Professional Speaker and Peak Performance Coach.

Also. I’ve worked with and coached some of the most successful women leaders in the world.

When I coached these high achieving women I noticed they had certain common traits. These traits meant they were able to combine life and work commitments with extraordinary success.

Now you can discover their same extraordinary success.

That’s because I’ve included these core traits in my seminar.

At the seminar you’ll discover:

“Bossy bitch” or “Too girly” – you don’t have to be labelled a ‘bloke in a skirt’

or lose your feminine power…discover the real meaning of


At last! Eliminate your fears forever using the powerful secret of the ‘Stop Technique.’ Amazing.

Discover the difference dealing with different genders in the workplace so you eliminate any potential conflict forever.

One little known secret to managing conflict and politics in the workplace. You’ll understand the “rules of the game” and still maintain a highly visible profile within your company.

How to build instant rapport and trust with anyone you meet by instantly realizing what type of person you’re dealing with. You’ll be amazed how much easier it is to build a working relationship and get more work done.

I could go on and on what you’ll discover. But I don’t have space here. However there is one really important thing you need to know. That’s how to…


Tap into the power of your mind to get what you really want in life


You’ll also discover how to change the way you think.

That’s because you’ll discover the power of your unconscious mind. And how your unconscious mind might be hindering your progress in life right now.

However once you leave the seminar you’ll know exactly how to program your unconscious mind so you achieve the life you’ve always dreamed of. Not only this

you’ll also discover:

How your childhood experiences could be making you self-sabotage your success.

You’ll be able to burst through this barrier forever.

The five behaviour traits which reveal if you’re a ‘hurry up’ driver or a ‘be strong’ driver. Or are you trying to please everyone all the time?

This secret method is dead simple and never fails to work.

How you can avoid being sucked into company politics.

Avoid the back stabbing, petty jealousies and rivalries that can occur in company teams.

Why your corporate image could be stalling your career progress.

And much, MUCH more

In addition you’ll also…


Discover the same tools that enabled me to build a thriving career against a background of suicide, divorce, betrayal and financial ruin


Here’s what makes an Authentic Leadership seminar different to other development seminars.

The seminar will shape you at every level – financially, emotionally, mentally and physically.

My seminar does this by giving you the tools that I have used personally (not from a text book). These tools enabled me to not only survive but thrive against some horrific life experiences that include suicide, divorce, betrayal and financial ruin. Not only that, I know how it feels to never have enough time because I have brought up three children on my own and had a highly successful career.

I teach from the heart and only teach that which has had the most profound effect on my life. That’s because I have studied personal development as an obsession for 3 decades – psychology, NLP, transactional analysis, spiritual journey, emotional intelligence and

I have developed my own female-friendly tools to help you mange your time

Anyway, no need to take my word for it – here are what previous attendees to my Authentic Leadership Seminar have to say:

“… Brilliant Seminar…”

‘I wanted to thank you again for giving me the opportunity to participate in your truly brilliant seminar; you are a very gifted coach and I feel that I took so much away with me. Huge thanks.’ Cleo Thompson, former Global Head of gender at Price Waterhouse and Cooper

“… Can Now Concentrate On What I Want… ”

“Even as a high “DI” I have filled my diary with prompts and tasks and now keep with me in my mind the vision of what I want (although I did already know, but now also know that I am going to get it!!)” Jo Williamson, Lloyds

“…Challenge My Feelings of Fear…”

“I learnt to challenge feelings of fear and assessing if expectations of myself are reasonable. I’ve also settled down into my role at work and spend time thinking about what is really important to me.” Jessica Colling, Vielife

“…Enlightening Motivating Seminar…”

“I found the 2 days enlightening and motivating.
Tracy Back, Lloyds

Once you depart the seminar here’s what you’ll take with you.

When you leave the seminar you won’t feel over-whelmed.

You won’t feel lacking in power. You won’t feel guilty.

You’ll have overcome all these negative feelings. And you be able to go forward and have the rewarding career and personal life you deserve.

Why can I say this?

That’s because I’ve seen at first hand how an Authentic Leadership Seminar changes women’s lives for the better.

I’ve seen women attendees arrive close to breaking point

And two days later they’re a different positive person. It’s almost like magic.

You’ll be excited. You’ll have a vision for your future. You’ll have better relationships with the people you work with and with your partner and family at home. You’ll get a huge injection of self confidence and self-esteem. You’ll finally get what you want from life.

You’ll also have made friends with a group of like minded women who’re going through the same experiences as you. Friends you’ll want to stay in contact with. Friends you can confide in. Friends who can give you any emotional support should you need it.


21 Day support afterwards so you actually use the tools and techniques you’ve been shown


You’ll receive a 28 page personality profile developed by Minnesota University. This means you’ll And concentrate on those areas which need urgent attention the most.

Plus, you’ll receive a goal plan for the next five years. Map out your goals so they finally become achievable. And you enjoy the rewarding life you’re meant to have.

Plus you’ll get a 21 day email follow up. For 21 days after the seminar you’ll get a daily email from me. Every day

I’ll send you an email to keep you on track. The email could include a short video… an audio message… a reminder of an action to take… a screen shot of an important point from the seminar…

This daily email helps you to maintain focus and provides you with the support to carry you forward.

Look, imagine discovering the strategies that can literally transform your life for the better. Imagine having an inner peace knowing you can strike the right balance between work and home. Imagine having it all!

PPS. Here are some more comments from seminar attendees:

“… One of the Best ‘Return on Investments’ I’ve Made in Years …”

“My doubts were blown away with a thought-provoking, pragmatic

and commercially orientated workshop – delivered professionally

and at a blistering pace!

The tools/techniques and processes learnt will stay with me and

the ongoing support/challenge from my fellow delegates, stimulated

with great discipline by Tracey, will endure. Truly one of the best

‘return on investments’ I’ve made in years… Thank you!”

Joanna Slevin, Head of Strategy & Planning, Lloyds TSB Group.

“… Now Have a New Life Trail To Follow…”

“As a genuinely sceptical person with regard to self assessment

and motivation, I did not believe that I would gain enough from the

course that could re-align my thoughts on the subject, let alone

re-align my direction in life. However, I was amazed. I am still

amazed. One and a half months on I still have motivation on the

subject, which must be a first from a course for me and am

continuing on my new life trail.” Michelle Stodell, Project Manger, Serco.

“… The Course Has Made Me ‘Go For It…'”

“The course has made me “go for it!”, be more organised in my life

and also made me realise that having balance in your life is really

important.” Emma Satchwell, Compass Group

“… Turning Point in My life”

“I’m still putting into action the skills learnt on the course. I

especially found the life mapping good as it helps me to focus on targets and

half of my targets I have achieved so far. It helped me fight for pay

increments and gave me back my sanity at a time where I was at

my lowest ebb.” Fiona Lynch, Compass Group
