Lead with Authentic Presence is a transformative program for women who want to win at work, succeed in life and make a difference

Its for women who:

  • Avoid taking risks for fear of failure or criticism
  • Feel stuck and frustrated, and disengaged at work
  • Struggle to speak up, share their ideas or ask for what they want
  • React to negative feedback and find it difficult to learn from it
  • Try to do it all alone and get stressed out as a result
  • Find it difficult to set boundaries or say ‘no’ where needed
  • Avoid opportunities and play small despite their competence
  • Struggle to inspire and motivate their team

It’s for talented women who are competent and conscientious, and yet keep doubting themselves or getting knocked down by their failures

Its for women who want to:

  • Feel they are growing and contributing at work
  • Pursue opportunities with grit and passion
  • Understand and undo their inner barriers
  • Handle challenges with grace and presence
  • Learn and grow through criticism and failure
  • Inspire and bring out the best in their team
  • Feel content about all aspects of their lives

Its for women who want to feel good about themselves, be alive in their work, find joy in their lives and lead with authentic confidence 

Women are at a stage in their evolutionary journey where they want to find success at work, but also fulfillment in their lives. 

And unless we provide them with the tools to do so, they will end up stressed and emotionally exhausted. Which they are…

They will get  stuck and frustrated below the proverbial glass ceiling, or feel empty and unfulfilled above it. Which they are…

They will play small and short change their potential, or think about opting out of the workplace. Which they are…

The Lead with Authentic Presence Program is about providing women with research backed strategies and evidence based tools that can help them find both success and fulfillment.

It is grounded on extant scientific research in positive psychology, neuroscience, leadership development and gender diversity and addresses the underlying reason female representation at the top remains strikingly low despite near equal representation until Middle Management. 

It has been tested in a RCT of 272 adult working women and implemented by hundreds of women of varying ages, professions and across the organizational ladder.

Some of the outcomes include:

  • Increased self-awareness and emotional management in order to take risks and step outside their comfort levels
  • Greater confidence in their ability to communicate powerfully and ask for what they want and deserve
  • Enhanced sense of meaning in their work and the ability to gracefully manage the challenges of male dominated workplaces
  • Better understanding of unconscious biases and gender mindsets, and better collaboration with male colleagues
  • Increased networking skills, enhanced quality of relationships and a relational sense of community
  • Empowered feelings of agency and confidence in their ability to manage uncertainty, risk-taking and change
  • Greater self-acceptance, enhanced sense of authenticity and intrinsic motivation, and an elevated sense of wellbeing

Working with Homaira Kabir was a provocative and thoughtful experience. Her voice is soothing and gentle, yet she does not shy away from tackling some challenging issues that may be getting in the way of our confidence and success. The biggest change I’ve noticed is how rooted my self-confidence is in early childhood experiences and how those formative experiences still shape my life today, and how important it is to be mindful and stay present. Her course is filled with citations that help make the case of why the course is tackling a particular subject or why the exercises help us open up to be more confident.

Homaira’s presentation resonated with all our female leaders. Her compelling approach combines the latest cutting-edge research with simple, evidence-based practices to make measurable change. Her talk will engage an audience intellectually and emotionally and ensure no participant leaves without at least one valuable take-away!

-Jessica Amortegui, Senior Director, Learning and Development, Logitech

I attended Homaira’s talk on women in the workplace and why women shy away from taking risks. Every word of hers resonated with me. And I loved it that it was all backed by solid research. I walked away with 2 tools to change this that have allowed me to take a few risks I’d been putting off for months.

-Participant, Corporate Banking, NBO

Homaira came in to talk to our dentistry students about motivation and about what stops many of them from staying persistent in their goal pursuit. We all learned great tools on grit, determination and managing the challenges along the way. And the IF/THEN plans strategy has been working quite a few wonders! Thank you Homaira!

-Zehera Ghouse, Head of Training, ODC

Homaira’s work with out teachers and students has been inspirational. Not only does she have a way of connecting with their concerns and addressing their challenges, she has always left them empowered with practical, effective and research-backed tools that have made an evident difference in their work and life. We love having her!

Lead with Authentic Presence is grounded in extensive research on women’s unique experiences and leadership development needs. As such, it meets women where they are.

It starts with a strong foundation of inner work, which is then layered with practical evidence based skills and strategies that are critical for women in leadership (that they often haven’t learnt or practiced)


Manage Your Inner Critic

A women’s Inner Critic is often loud, overbearing and personally damaging. Participants will uncover when and why it shows up for them, recognize its many “personalities” and voices, and learn to grow an inner guide that’s wise and courageous.


For Senior Management – Sponsorship, Politics and Privilege

Pursue Your Leadership Vision

The pursuit of an Ought Self keeps women from showing up fully at work. Participants will connect to their unique strengths and values, identify their leadership vision, and set purposeful goals aligned with their Ideal Self. They will learn to job-craft and build meaning in their tasks so they are empowered to rise up to the unique challenges of working women.

Build Empowering Networks

Women often feel hesitant about asking for help because it can come across as self-serving. Participants will learn the power of a “tribe” in helping them develop healthy relationships of give and take. They will identify the support system that can guide them in their personal and professional development and learn how to harness it for reciprocal benefit.


Courageous Conversations

Women are relational – dependent on approval and fearful of criticism. Participants will learn to manage the fear of criticism and break free from the need for praise through a proven 3 part framework that is aligned with women’s needs and fears.

For Senior Management 
– Focus, Flow and Contribution

The Art of Failing Forward

The fear of failure keeps many women from stepping out of their comfort zone. Participants will learn to manage the fears and self-doubt that keeps them from taking action by becoming comfortable with failure. They will also learn how to turn success into mastery, and the 3Ps that can help them persevere through setbacks and move on from failure.

Imperfect Work/Life Balance

Balancing work and life is a working woman’s greatest dilemma. Participants will learn to identify what’s truly important to them, manage their time and energy and learn to become comfortable with imperfection so they are able to show up fully, even if not perfectly.

Why I’m Passionate about Women’s Leadership

I’ve been working as a women’s leadership coach for close to a decade. Very early on in my practice, I began to notice a certain pattern: regardless of the reason women came to me for leadership coaching, the conversations invariably turned to confidence. Often these were seemingly confident women, but they continued to doubt themselves. They knew they were competent, but they couldn’t speak up and share their ideas, take consistent action towards their goals, or sponsor and support other women to rise to their highest potential. 

These brilliant women were doing a disservive to themselves. And they were doing a disservice to other women and to their organizations.

I spent many years doing psychological research on the underlying reasons for this pattern. And what I found was that their confidence was underpinned by deep-seated feelings of low self-worth that existed largely at the implicit level. As such, these feelings stayed unaddressed all their lives, and yet affected their thoughts, emotions and decisions. Based on these findings, I developed a framework for authentic confidence that I again researched in randomized control trials with women in different professions and at all stages of their career trajectory. What emerged was Lead with Authentic Presence, a pioneering leadership model that delivers results by meeting women where they are.

Your wisdom, experience and passion can be felt throughout your words and courses.

Before signing on to your course 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 Authentic Self Worth Course, I was able to make decisions with clarity despite fear, decisions that I wasn’t able to before.  Even though they were small decisions (small steps) 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 in the course that opened up my self-awareness and self-compassion. I also love your regular bits of wisdom that come through my inbox, they are a gentle reminder of the lessons I learnt throughout the course. With lots of love, Gwen.

I highly recommend Homaira and her approach to building confidence, not only in the workplace, but in life in general. By working through her thoughtful exercises, videos and questions, I developed a clear idea of what was holding me back, and how to overcome the obstacles surrounding my insecurities. Because of her articles and workshops, I feel a greater sense of self worth, stronger self-advocacy, and a renewed sense of optimism in my career and my life. Thanks Homaira!


Katherine Barkley

Homaira, I am absolutely amazed by you and your course, and feel so privileged to have been able to receive your love, compassion and wisdom. REally SOOO beautiful!!! I can´t find words to tell you the powerful spirit that you project through your work, and with such a high level of conceptual and practical understanding. I would say your work is perfect.

I would personally like to thank you for sharing your Confidence Course. As I began the course I wasn’t sure what to expect. Your course has helped me in more ways than I can describe in a simple paragraph. In the past I struggled with setting boundaries, managing stress, self doubt, heck, almost all the areas in this program pertained to me. Since completion of the program I have been 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 due to this course. Thank you, thank you, thank you Homaira for taking the time to share this course with women; we need you and this program!
