Coaching expert Alexia Vernon demonstrates how to be your own best advocate and create your ideal future. She was born to be a coach – but, she explains, making it happen required tapping into her “moxie.” She urges you to project your “voice, visibility and influence” in personal, professional and community settings. Stepping into your moxie requires evaluating your goals, motivation, communication and boundaries. You can ask for the salary you deserve, have daring conversations and become a better presenter. Vernon aims her thought-provoking ideas at women who’re ready to become their own “heroines.” Her book functions best as a workbook, so have a notebook ready for the exercises in each chapter. Women seeking to improve their communication skills and boost their authenticity by learning from their past actions and behaviors will benefit from a close read and from practicing Vernon’s exercises.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “moxie” is and how it can empower you to be an advocate for yourself,
- How language and self-reflection help you tap into your moxie, and
- How practical steps can help you cultivate confidence.
