Imagine if you were…

bold enough to claim joy and ease and ditch overwhelm and burnout as markers of success.
grounded enough to manage the voice of fear, self-doubt, comparison and the feeling of never being / doing / having enough.
brave enough to ask for the help, the attention, the promotion or the funding you want and deserve from a place of strength.
compassionate enough to value your needs and know when and how to give yourself a break.
secure enough to forgive yourself for your mistakes, accept others for who they are, and be a champion for their growth and flourishing
daring enough to raise your ambitions and dream a bigger dream of what’s possible in your relationships or career.
attuned enough to trust your gut, follow your intuition, and make the decisions that you know are right for you.
confident enough to value your strengths, have clarity of purpose, and make a greater positive difference in the world.

Imagine if you were the light that inspired and influenced others by the way you live, love and lead.

“Your program helps me in more ways than I can describe in a paragraph. 

In the past I struggled with setting boundaries, managing stress, self doubt, heck, almost all the areas in this program pertained to me. 
Now I am able to cluster tasks, delegate work out, listen more intently, set boundaries & more. I was even able to tell someone I could no longer work on a project due to differences of opinions which relieved me of so much stress. 
Before this course I would never have been able to do that. I would have just added it onto my pile and complained about it to myself.

My life has changed so much and for the better.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Homaira for taking the time to share this with women; we need you and this program!

The Goodbye Perfect journey is based on a bottom-up model of women’s flourishing that begins with the inner work of authentic power, and continues with the outer work of navigating the challenges of living on purpose in a top-down and patriarchal world.
These are the two essential and sequential layers of “optimal confidence” that unlock full potential. Most other programs address the top layer only, which builds “fragile confidence” and leads to more perfection, pleasing, approval seeking, and threatened leadership.
Goodbye Perfect is unparalleled in what it offers: fully backed by science and evidence, integrated with soulful inner work, and supported by expert coaching and community to create remarkable transformations from the inside out. Our mission is to help birth a world where women are showing up in their full power and changing the rules of the game.

The Uplifting Journey

The Goodbye Perfect journey guides you through 6 sequential stages (based on the 2 layers of flourishing) that are essential to grow into your full potential.

Layer 1: Own Your Power

Layer 1 is about inner work; it builds the 3 components of feminine power that are essential for women to step forward with courage and resilience.

hk-module-1

Goodbye Critic,
Hello Compassion

Explore the many voices in your head, and learn how to dial up your self-compassion in moments of weakness or when you hear the mean girl voice in your mind.
97% of participants say they have the knowledge and tools to manage their emotions, be on their own side and be guided by what is most important to them.
Make sense of the past and understand the three overarching stories you might be telling yourself (don’t worry – we all do)
Recognize the many (often sneaky) ways the voices show up and build a toolbox to distance yourself from them, instead of fighting with them because they always win.
Learn how to relate to yourself with love and understanding – even when you make real mistakes (and certainly when it’s just your expectations of yourself).
Fall in love with yourself in the most living giving way, so you take full responsibility of taking care of your needs, goals and aspirations.
hk-module-2

Goodbye Pleasing,
Hello Belonging

Learn why power imbalances exist, and what you can do to build trust and create the give and take cycles of healthy relationships.
Over 92% of participants report feeling supported, knowing how to set boundaries, and having stronger relationships both at home and at work.
Understand how attachment style plays out in adult relationships, and your give-take ratio with different people and in different situations.
Learn a powerful framework to ask for what you want from a place of strength (and without clinging, apologising or needless justifications.)
Practice trust-building through Brene Brown’s research, and how empathy and vulnerability go hand in hand..
Develop the ability to protect yourself from “takers” and to know how to let go of anger or resentment while protecting yourself.
hk-module-3

Goodbye Confusion,
Hello Purpose

Own your strengths and unique gifts, create your ideal life vision, and start living in alignment with who you are and how you want to show up.
95% of participants say they have strategies and structures in place to be at their most effective, engaged and energized (at home and at work).
Uncover the strengths, values and experiences that make you YOU and develop a “personal brand” that reflects who you are and what you want to be known for.
Create your ideal life based on who you are and learn why it is the only way you can actualize your full potential.
Identify the changes you need to make to start living with more authenticity and purpose, and turn them into powerful habits (through the science of habit-formation).
Build an “inner protector” who takes care of your wellbeing, safeguards your sense of joy, and steps in when comparison, negativity, perfection or overwork takes over.

Layer 2: Unlock Your Potential

Layer 2 is outer work; it addresses the interpersonal challenges women face in homes and workplaces, and empowers them to create systemic change.

hk-module-4

Goodbye Fear, Hello Courage

Learn to identify which area of your life is ready for growth, visualize the full extent of what’s possible, and develop a plan toward it that is both structured and flexible.
96% of participants feel confident in taking risks and reaching out for opportunities, and making complex decisions with ease.
Set “moonshot” goals that raise your ambitions or aspirations, without getting trapped by potential practical dilemmas early on.
Build powerful systems and structures that move you forward, based on the science of grit, optimism, self-efficacy and motivation.
Learn to manage 2 types of fear—fear of the worst and not having what it takes, and fear of your power and what’s possible.
Learn the FIERCE framework that develops your intuition, and helps you pivot when the situation calls for it.
hk-module-5

Goodbye Victim, Hello Creator

Understand the key derailment factors that get in the way of women’s goals, growth or advancement, and how you can continue to show up in your power.
More than 93% of participants say they have tools to speak with confidence and stay motivated despite setbacks. 89% say they feel a stronger sense of self.
Uncover the ways you may be undermining yourself with your speech patterns and how presence can help women walk the fine line of competence and likeability.
Learn how to manage conflict, deal with challenging people, and be comfortable with difficult conversations.
Develop Professor Carol Dweck’s growth mindset, and a reliable approach to deal with the criticism that almost every woman faces when she shows up assertively.
Learn the 4-step framework that will help you become your greatest cheerleader (and finally say goodbye to the Imposter Syndrome for good).
hk-module-6

Goodbye Pushing, Hello Power

Develop your role as a leader (in any area of your life), and learn how to influence others such that they are internally motivated to change.
96% of participants say they are more confident leaders and better at influencing people’s behaviours without coming across as pushy or turning them away.

 

Understand the science of persuasion and how “tending to the soil” is a far better strategy to motivate people and empower them to change.
Learn how bias deeply impacts women’s equality efforts and learn ways to identify and work with your own fears, beliefs and biases.
Understand what allyship really means and develop “power partner” relationships where you champion and support each other in your goals.
Embrace your place as a leader, no matter your age, role, or seniority level, and learn how to grow the not so elusive quality of “charisma”.

Goodbye Perfect has created incredible results for hundreds of women globally:

the most validating and
valuable experiences

“Subscribing to the program has been one of the most validating and valuable experiences I have committed to in a long while. Homaira is a gifted psychologist/ coach who brings a deep knowledge of Positive Psychology and research to the program, combined with genuine empathy, intuition and wisdom. The former promotes clarity and understanding among participants, while the latter fosters a growing self-confidence, self-compassion, awareness and insight. The lessons are stimulating and informative and the calls are empowering with Homaira adeptly creating a safe and supportive group environment which promotes meaningful sharing, discussion and learning. I highly recommend the program to any woman who seriously wants to get clear on who she is, where her strengths lie, what matters to her and how to express herself authentically in the world.

i see myself a
changed person

“Before signing on to your program I was in a dark place in my life, after having my first child and experiencing prolonged bouts of depression I was desperate to find my feet again. I was a different person, with different responsibilities, new experiences; changes that I didn’t know how to cope with at the time. After completing the program, I was able to make decisions with clarity despite fear, decisions that I wasn’t able to before. Even though they were small decisions at the time they manifested into greater experiences and opportunities, and still continue today. I am deeply grateful to you Homaira, for your wisdom and guidance that opened up my self-awareness and self-compassion. I see myself a changed person, and I’m so glad this is the self that I can bring to my parenting in particular, and to life in general.”
– GWEN TRAN

i would say
your work is perfect!

“Homaira, I am absolutely amazed by you and your work, and feel so privileged to receive your love, compassion and wisdom. Really SOOO beautiful!!!I can’t find words to tell you the powerful spirit you project, and with such a high level of conceptual and practical understanding. I was greatly enriched at a personal and professional level, and I know I’ll come back to the material again and again as I experience something new or challenging, and gain a fresh perspective each time. I would say your work is perfect!
– KATHERINE BARKLEY
hk-Jing-Lin

the program has been
wonderful in so many ways

Being part of the program has been wonderful in so many ways. Homaira’s warmth and understanding really stood out for me. In coaching sessions, I often felt like I was babbling on about a million things, but she was able to draw out the deepest insights from my “babble” and I have been astonished by how she’s been able to connect the dots for me. All the practical tools and tips have been invaluable for everyday life when situations show up that trigger negative emotions or reoccurring beliefs. I’m so glad to have done the deeper work in the program.
– JING LIN

a really worthwhile
and valuable experience

“I went to Homaira to help me deal with some career challenges and developments in a new role. The work I have done with Homaira has enabled me to have a much clearer understanding of my values and character strengths, which has allowed me to re-define some of my key professional and personal goals and to start to work towards them in a positive, confident and balanced way. A really worthwhile and valuable experience.

homaira's coaching was
incredibly valuable

Homaira’s coaching was incredibly valuable – she underscored the importance of centering my values and creating healthy boundaries in order to show up as my best self as a compassionate manager and leader. Her guidance has helped me focus on true priorities that meet life and career goals and identify ways to leverage my natural character strengths to build more authentic relationships with colleagues.”

HI, MY NAME IS HOMAIRA 
AND I'LL BE GUIDING YOU THROUGH THE GOODBYE PERFECT PROGRAM

Here’s a little about me

Education: I hold Master’s degrees in Coaching Psychology and in Positive Psychology – the science of human flourishing and wellbeing – from the University of East London. My postgraduate research is on women’s confidence.  
Thought Leader: My research and thoughts on the topic of confidence (in particular) are regularly featured in Forbes, Happify, Thrive Global, The Huffington Post along with many other publications. My articles have been viewed by over 1 Million readers. 
Author: My new book ‘Goodbye Perfect: How To Stop Pleasing, Proving and Pushing For Others… and Live For Yourself’ offers a science backed journey to flourishing and will be launched in March 2023. 
Leadership Coach: I bring 10+ years of coaching experience working with women across intersectionality, industry, at different stages of their career trajectories, stay at home moms, entrepreneurs, and women working through life and career transitions.
What you get in me though, is so much more than my education and expertise. I have a keen sensitivity to people’s unsaid needs and find joy in helping them nourish their potential and pursue their heart’s longings. It’s this unique blend of head and heart that enables me to inspire what’s possible, while addressing some of the very real and everyday challenges in your life.

SO powerful and incredible!

“Joining the program was a no brainer for me because I felt so stuck in my life. I was successful, there was nothing apparently wrong. But I knew something was missing, and just didn’t know how to find it. The program surpassed my expectations in every way. I’ve had so many ‘Aha’ moments that have brought a totally new appreciation for what I have. Even though my life isn’t that much different, I feel on top of it. As though its MY life. I wake up everyday feeling excited about what’s to come, even the things that would stress me out. SO powerful and incredible! I know I’ll be coming back again and again.– RUTH MARCHUK
 

I’ve really grown as a person

“I’ve been weaving the tools and techniques into my own work with groups, because I know that magic happens when we apply them in our lives. There is so much depth in the reflection worksheets, and the coaching calls are amazing because we’re able to connect directly with Homaira, and watch women have profound changes in perspective. I know I’ve really grown as a person, people who know me notice it, and it feels good to be able to inspire others while feeling so much more connected with myself.” – ANITA PANJAL

 

I’ve been amazed by the transformation.

“The program offers so much value in a really practical and thoughtful way. In my role, I’ve done quite a bit of professional development work, so I didn’t think there was a lot for me to grow personally. I’ve been amazed by the transformation. It’s been wonderful to apply what I learnt in all areas of my life, including my role as a mother. THANK YOU Homaira for all the brilliance, thoughtfulness, knowledge, experience, and genuine care you project through your work. I’ve loved the experience and am truly grateful!” – ALICE LING

The program really helped me manage the moments of fear and take the actions to move forward

Previously, I would spend all my time and energy endlessly perfecting my business plan even though I really wanted to go out there and make a difference. But I was afraid. The program really helped me manage the moments of fear and take the actions to move forward. I also found that it became easier for me to do so overtime, which has been one of the greatest gifts of the program. I’ve now launched my business, even though it wasn’t “ready”, and am happily engaged in the work I feel called to do” – SHADIA HAFEZ

 

The most helpful career learning and development opportunities I have taken

I came to the program looking to unlock and address certain persistent patterns in my career. The process itself was probably one of the most helpful career learning and development opportunities I have taken.  It was tailored to my practical immediate needs, as well as more long-term needs and ambitions.  I gained perspective and tools to apply right away to situations I was facing at work, as well as tools that have impacted my approach to not only my professional path, but other areas of my life as well. – SARA MICHEL

 

The impact is more than one can imagine

From the very beginning, I found Homaira to be gentle, caring, kind, insightful, and informative, and looked forward to the coaching calls that always shifted my perspective. I “unknotted” quite a few professional “knots” and have started a new job with such roundedness, clarity, and tools to help me address the internal and external challenges that I will surely face along the way. I would highly recommend the program.  The impact is more than one can imagine.– MYNA RADFORD

If you’ve read this far, a part of you wants to live the
biggest version of your life.

It wants the clarity, energy, confidence and support to go after your dreams. 
And then there are the other parts. Can I do it? What about all the other courses I’ve wasted money on? What about the children, the parents, the house? How will I manage it all? As a giver, you take care of so many people and projects that it’s natural to have these worries. 
BUT WHEN WILL IT BE YOUR TURN?
How much more of your life do you want to spend waiting? How many more precious days will you spend doubting what’s possible in your career, your relationship, your life… 
Because none of us is promised an eternity. And there can be nothing worse than getting to the end of your life and wishing you had lived. That you had listened to the whispers of your potential. Because they do speak in whispers. It’s our fears that scream out loud.
If you hear the whispers, I promise you the best structure, tools and support you need to succeed. I say this with so much confidence because hundreds of women have been through this journey and are now living vastly better lives.
I’m fully invested in your growth and flourishing. Please join us!

Often women wonder whether they are in the “right” age group or career path to participate in the program. The usual age ranges from the 30s to the 70s, with women engaged in diverse work settings, and those who are retired or at home raising children. The Goodbye Perfect program is a personal development program—if you want to live, love or lead as your best self, it is just the program for you!

You’re not alone! Our biggest fears show up when we dream of what’s possible and go after that which speaks to us at a deep and soulful level. If the idea of joining excites you, listen to your heart. If you hear that inner voice that tells you you should wait, ask yourself what it’s costing you in terms of your joy, success and fulfillment. 

Ask yourself what are your aspirations or intentions for the coming year, and whether the program feels aligned with it. And know that you’ll be supported by a very welcoming, compassionate community of like-minded women committed to the biggest version of their lives! We hope you will join us!

We’d love to answer them! Please write to us at homaira@homairakabir.com—you can also request a call where we can talk through your concerns and figure out the best way forward for you.
