Empowerment: An insight from our talent liberator

by Rachel Brushfield
11 February 2019

Rachel Brushfield, the talent liberator, will be delivering a workshop on 12 March focusing on confidence building, self-awareness, and personal leadership - being the leader of your own life and career.

The word empowerment means ‘becoming stronger and more confident’. Feeling empowered helps people to grow, flourish and go the extra mile. It is infectious.

Productivity increases, performance is enhanced, comfort zones are pushed out. Empowerment is expansive.

This quote from a speech by Nelson Mandela sums up empowerment well:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

What increases empowerment? Self-awareness, personal leadership – being the leader of your own life and career, being with encouraging people; colleagues, mentors, coaches, personal development.

Book your place at the Women Lawyers Division Empowerment workshop on Wednesday 12 March from 2pm to 4pm in celebration of International Women’s Day 2019.
