Values & Confidence Workshop KATE O’REILLY // @CLEVERKATE #unleashed // #40forward


Slides from a confidence and values workshop led as the first part of a four-part series given at CoCo Minneapolis by Kate O'Reilly to support Google for Entrepreneurs' #40forward initiate, which aims to rethink the gender gap in startups and entrepreneurial communities. Two exercizes were done within the session to better connect the attendees -- another goal is to create a supportive, ongoing community that meets regularly and communicates daily for better progress.

“The conversations and language around beauty, bodies, brains, accomplishments, power, assertiveness have to be clear and

smarter and more direct. We have to own our power and embody it. If you’re loud, be loud. If you’re smart, say it it out loud. If you do amazing things, talk about them. If your daughter doesn’t want to

dress like other girls, or is assertive, or puts herself out there, support her. But support yourself, too. Make your reality something that resonates with her. If you work 3 or 4 jobs to support you and your family, talk about what that means and why you’re doing it.”

Let’s break that down.

This slide was *thisclose* to being an R. Kelly lyric.

Calm — good sleep, regular yoga, drama-free relationships, being organized, managing “noise” !

Tradition — making things from scratch from my Grandmother’s recipes, carrying on special family practices, recalling my parents’ values and deciding which ones I would carry on !

Honesty — honoring commitments, being on time, being kind & clear in difficult situations, clearly stating my needs !

Happiness — simple and real: music, finding beauty, dancing, laughing, being curious, helping people succeed !

Stability — well-managed finances, routines, stocked cupboards, being prepared !

Community — solid and supportive friendships, working family relationships, donating time and funds selflessly to those who are struggling, spending money locally

Six* ways to gain confidence and better define your values

that you can do today (or tomorrow).


*Choose one. All six at once will make you crazy.

Six things you can do to gain confidence today: !• Get enough sleep. Sleep solves ALL THE PROBLEMS. I schedule sleep. On my phone, at 9:20PM, a reminder goes off: Time to wind down. Every night. !• Eliminate jealousy as an emotion. Want something for yourself? Go get it. !• Wear only clothes (AND SHOES) that make you feel amazing. If someone says you look great in a color: believe them and wear it more. !• Break up with one person that weighs you down. Actively/or fade away. Be kind and be done. !• Go to a restaurant and order the first thing that looks good. Then put the menu down and talk to the person across from you about real things. !
