“I believe when we step into our power, and out of our comfort zone, growth happens.” Shanna Kabatznick, Founder and CEO of FABWomen states.

The Hampton Roads Chamber is dedicated to setting the conditions for business to succeed. The Chamber welcomes Shanna Kabatznick as the speaker for our June 16th Power of Women Series about being a fearless woman and authentic leader in business. Through this interactive session, participants were able to talk amongst themselves in small groups about being a fearless leader on their platform.

“Fearless does not mean being afraid. It means being afraid but doing something in spite of it” Shanna states before breaking up into small groups.  In this first breakout session, participants discuss a time in their life when they were fearless women. As everyone returns from their breakout groups, many of the women share how someone had inspired them to make a fearless decision and how fear motivated them to make a life-changing transition.

“There I am, the first day at MetLife. Single, female, Latina with two small kids in a male-driven industry. I felt like I did not belong.” As she continues her story Shanna states, “I learned to lean into my authentic self…if being different is what they saw as a downfall then I was going to use being different as a positive thing to move forward.”

Before the participants enter the last breakout session, Shanna asks everyone to think about what it means to be an authentic leader personally and/or professionally. Participant, Elizabeth Duncan-Hawker shares with the group that, “Following your core values and being true to yourself” is an example of being an authentic leader.

For the last exercise, Shanna encourages everyone to think about a bold action that will help him or her move forward personally and/or professionally. Participants shared their bold actions from choosing college courses to purging closets and even emails as their bold action of the week.

The last piece to being a fearless woman and authentic leader in business is to “be bold by doing the work, even when we don’t feel like it“, Shanna states. It is about doing whatever it takes to achieve a goal.
