Practical Strategies to Boost Your Confidence.

With unflinching honesty, Kate McGuinness describes the blows that undermined her confidence. She went from flourishing as a high-flying Los Angeles lawyer to existing as an exile in an Iowa farm town. The downward spiral started with her surprise termination from a dream job and deepened with divorce and financial loss. Then Kate began the journey to confidence found by becoming trained as an executive coach. The plans she shares in this book enabled her to create sustainable self-confidence.

Confidence Lost / Confidence Found: How to Reclaim the Unstoppable You serves up 27 bite-sized chapters full of relatable stories and simple exercises that offer a road map for building and maintaining confidence. McGuinness guides readers on how to:

  • Build confidence by increasing eight attitudes, including assertiveness, self-compassion, and authenticity.
  • Minimize five self-sabotaging behaviors that erode confidence.

Rich with real-life examples and road-tested practices, Confidence Lost/Confidence Found is grounded in breakthrough brain science to unleash the power of neuroplasticity. The author's step-by-step approach shows readers how to become aware of helpful and harmful behaviors through mindfulness.
