WIN Like a Girl
Grow in courage, confidence,
and self leadership
Win Like A Girl® is a proven courage, confidence, and self-leadership program for female athletes and teams. It’s founded in my consulting practice with over 1,400 athletes and coaches at the middle school, high school, college, and Olympic level. The purpose of the Win Like a Girl® program is not to win trophies, though many of my teams are championship teams. I have a far more important goal.
Success for Win Like a Girl® is training and nourishing female athletes so that they feel strong and powerful, grow into brave women who understand how to leverage their power to overcome adversity and become champions at the game of life.
The Win Like a Girl® journey is comprised of simple (but not easy!) steps that can be taken by coaches, parents, and athletes.
If you want to Become Unstoppable but reading is not your thing, there is still hope!
I provide confidence training and exercises to help teams overcome obstacles, deepen connections, and align with clear success metrics – both the WHAT we want to achieve and HOW we behave to get there. The result is a competitive advantage – from the locker room to the board room – found in the human system of performance.
The confidence crisis
Do you have an athlete in your life who struggles with courage and self-confidence? Do they worry about being accepted by their teammates? Are they crippled by a fear of making mistakes?
If so, they are not alone (recent examples include Simone Biles or Naomi Osaka) and you’ve come to the right place. One of the greatest joys of my life is helping female athletes reach their full potential! Welcome to my Win Like a Girl® program!
The great news is that if we train female athletes to improve confidence (just as they train physically and technically for sport) they get better at it! Below is a text from an athlete who made this journey. She sent it to her coach, who forwarded it to me.
“I feel so much more confident in going into the goal and having a vision of where I need to go and what I need to do. I played swing so I played every JV game and every varsity game. I played 7 games this weekend! My teammates are trusting me more and getting the ball to me and I am passing to them.”
There are multiple victories in that text. Increased risk-taking. Imagining her success before she attempts it. Feeling nourished by the increased trust and engagement with her teammates. But there is something even more important at play.
Win at the game of life
Someday, it will not be the fear of going to the goal or passing the ball that the athlete will overcome. It will be taking a hard course in college. Or reaching out to someone to connect in a business context. Or saying no to drugs. Or starting her own company. Now, this young woman is armed with a process entirely within her control that she can replicate no matter the situation. This is what success looks like for Win Like a Girl®. And that athlete’s text is what a powerful girl on the rise sounds like. That’s what a burgeoning champion at the game of life feels like.
“I saw you put strangers on a field together, work with them to build camaraderie, and suddenly they’re in the State Final. I also like the long-term benefits. It helped (her athlete) understand who they were as a person and how they would work with other people in the future.”
“Your program had an immediate impact in my life in a really profound way. It was something I could immediately take action on and I like that it’s a system where there's a lot I can do on my own. It validated my strengths, which felt great, and that helped me understand that the athletes I work with need their strengths validated as well. Most importantly, Win Like A Girl solves the problem of connecting with athletes totally unlike myself and that’s something I’ve always struggled with.”
“Win Like a Girl taught me about the importance of having that bridge between getting to know the players/coaches and getting them to work together for a common purpose. Your program helps me love and value my players by understanding their strengths. When everyone is valuable, it eliminates drama. Now, coaches from other regions are coming to me to duplicate how I run things with my teams—including the 'No Drama Rule!'"
"I’ve shifted from being a teammate to being a friend and I’m finding it easier to talk to them on the field. I’m able to be more honest and more relaxed at the same time. I trust them more, and that helps me focus on my game."
