Imagine your ideal career and life where you  -- and who you've always known you were meant to be -- can fully thrive.

Using your 9 Leadership Power Tools and a new way to think about power that you will embrace with confidence, authenticity and joy…

Without being passed over for positions and promotions you are qualified for and deserving of, gaining clarity as needed if you are rethinking your path, even if you have no extra time for an in-person course (who has time for that?).

Who Is It For?
What's Included?
Course Modules
  • You are ambitious, but being passed up for promotions; you want to know how to gain the respect and the roles you deserve.
  • The pandemic has shifted not only your daily life but also your mindset, causing you to consider changes so your career works for you and not the other way around. 
  • You want to get clarity on your next career move and a powerful plan to achieve it.
  • You value diversity, equity, inclusion, and think it’s time for gender parity in leadership. 
  • You’re ready to take the lead in your life and career, bringing your power and leadership forward so that you can live and work in your full authenticity with confidence, passion and grace.  
This course will teach you how to be your own best advocate using your powerful voice to thrive in the world as it is while changing it. 

"The 9 Leadership Power Tools course re-shaped my thinking on personal power and how to embrace it to create the vision I want for my life and career. During this course I learned the importance of knowing my history, while using the power of intention and effective communication to design the future on my terms. Gloria, an excellent and inspiring teacher, knows the right questions to ask that facilitate meaningful in-depth discussions and personal reflections. While taking this course, I was exploring new job opportunities and I used the tools outlined in the class to successfully navigate the process.  As a result, I received several job offers for leadership roles within the technology industry. If you have a chance to take this class do it!" 

- Deniece Moxy Senior Manager, Product Marketing, AppZen

"I have begun to see I actually have more power and influence than I thought. My experience and skills are highly regarded, but I don't always realize that. I will find opportunities to use my power to keep  moving forward."

Can life's disruptions be your source of power?

My friends, think about it. We aren’t given opportunities like this very often. A once-in-a-lifetime transformational opportunity to come out better, stronger and more prosperous. Chaos is inevitable, just as change is inevitable.


Will you "Carpe the Chaos?"
(that’s Power Tool 5!)

"From my career experience, I believe chaos presents opportunity, and that has given me the courage I've needed to act many times when I was actually quaking in my boots."

- Gloria Feldt, Bestselling Author of No Excuses, Creator and Leader of the Course, Cofounder and President of Take The Lead

Hi! I’m Gloria Feldt, bestselling author of No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power on which this course is based, and cofounder and president of the 501(c)3 non-profit organization Take The Lead. Our mission is BOLD.

Take The Lead prepares, develops, inspires and propels all women of all diversities and intersectionalities to take their fair and equal share of leadership positions across all sectors by 2025.

We do this work and offer this course because you deserve the equal pay, positions, and power of your highest intentions. This course will teach you the specific thought processes and skills to identify and channel your inner strength and power. 

You already have more power than you might realize. Our job is to give you the tools, show you how to use them and then set you free to conquer your world! We are providing you the choice of three plans.

Learn How to Identify Your Unique Power

My Story: From Teen Mom to CEO

Before I became a New York Times best-selling author and feminist leader, long before I founded Take The Lead, I was a teen mom in West Texas with no employable skills. I didn’t know how to shine my own light without feeling bad or guilty about it. I was scared, feeling powerless and lacking confidence.

I learned the hard way that success isn’t only about your degree, working twice as hard, or being a team player…

It’s about getting to know your unique value and embracing your power.

But I understand it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where you are in embracing and growing your own power. That’s why I created this 9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career course, to share everything I’ve learned the hard way.

“These are transformative concepts ... the concepts and tools gained from the program, and the relationships gained alongside them, are invaluable.”

-Michelle Genece Patterson, Senior Producer, CNN

The World Needs What You Have to Offer. 

But it’s not possible for you to clarify your authentic intentions and give your powerful best if you put yourself last and play small. Your vision, ideas and plans have the power to shape the future.   

Can you imagine what that feels like?  

It might feel uncomfortable at first but, to your soul, it simply feels like HOME.  

You are here on this very web page - among the billions of other web pages - for a specific reason.  

I have faith in you. I know you can set your own agenda and the 9 Leadership Power Tools will support you on your journey.

I am really excited about putting my strategic plan into action now, and seeing the results in 6 months. This course has helped me tremendously and I would love for more women to benefit from it. I feel very confident in my decisions now, and know that I can (and will) do the hard stuff to get where I want to go. I am ready to aim higher, and achieve higher-and just have fun along the way! I don't know what's coming next, but I do know it will be awesome, because I'm not settling for anything less.

FACT: The way in which women and men speak to each other in the workplace can impede your career! 

9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career will teach you the difference between oppressive “power over” and generative “power to.”

In the words of Brené Brown, “We can’t understand leadership if we don’t talk about power.” So making that distinction between being right vs. getting it right makes all the difference in the world! 

Once we have shucked Imposter Syndrome and are working in “power to” mode, several things happen: 

  • You don’t have to compete if everyone has the same goal; the pie is infinite. 
  • You can be sensitive while being assertive. 
  • You can care for the whole while caring for yourself. 
  • You can unite and inspire rather than divide and dispirit.

“I used what I had and defined my terms this year [2 of the program's 9 Power Tools] and it landed me right where I want to be: championing women of color in and across journalism and media. In accepting my new role, I negotiated for more money than what was originally offered, laying out a clear and concise case for it and leveraging my experience and some of the concessions I'd be making with the rest of the compensation package. We landed a fair package that both parties are happy about. I wasn't just fighting for more money in my pocket, but also thinking of setting a new and higher standard for women who come into the company after me.”

-Christina Tapper, Deputy Editor, ZORA

9 Leadership Power Tools to Advance Your Career: Built by Women for Women.

These are tools for self-realization and dominance used to hack away at the self-limiting stories you have A) been told by others and B) told yourself. The implicit bias you’ve unknowingly learned, shaped by our patriarchal culture. This is not a blame game. It isn’t anyone’s fault. Men have been taught the same things and we have courses for them, too! 

These 9 Leadership Power Tools will prepare and propel you to achieve your HIGHEST intentions. It's all-access to the secret strategies I’ve learned over the years pertaining to unparalleled career breakthroughs for women like you.

And it’s all 100% online, done at your own pace. 


Your only purpose is to be your unique self. It’s not to compete with other women (or men). What a relief! You only have to be you - and you are the only one who can do that - but you first have to channel your inner cheetah. 


We can help you find her. The vulnerable, instinctual, powerful her.
