In this episode, Libby speaks with mission driven consultant and business owner, Christine Woodward. Christine shares all about the importance of confidence when it comes to leadership and how she helps other business owners to grow beyond their comfort zones. Through her consultancy agency, 19th & Co., Christine’s focus is less about services and more about the partnership they deliver to their clients that helps unearth each need and pushes each clients’ dreams over the finish line, over and over again. At 19th & Co their name is their mission – to remind the world that it was the 19th amendment that solidified the efforts of the amazing women who fought for women’s rights. To further her mission of empowering women, her consultancy, 19th&CO launched The JuDi Project – a mission-driven training program for women to level up in their confidence.
Libby and Christine discuss:
- Christine’s background in architecture and design and how it plays a role into her coaching and consulting business
- Why women have been set back four years in the workplace
- How she guides her clients and helps them strategize without giving them ‘homework’
- The importance of finding and amplifying female voices
- The energy that can come from allowing yourself to do something you’ve always wanted to do or dreamed of
- Knowing the difference between humility and bragging (and why women need to be humble bragging more often)
- Redefining and reimagining how women treat each other
Confidence is a skill that each of us deserves and are capable of having. We simply need the tools to acquire it. Christine strikes the perfect balance of design-thinking with action-biased methods from her 15 years in advertising in New York and designing spaces as an architect and interior designer for some of the world’s most luxurious brands. She holds a masters in Architecture, studies in management at Harvard, and is an MBA candidate at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. She lives in California and spends her free time with her husband and two kids.
