Navigating your career or entrepreneurial venture requires a growth mindset to overcome obstacles and achieve success. Beate Chelette is a growth architect and founder of The Women’s Code, a professional development company specializing in guiding organizations to an enhanced return on investment (ROI) through balanced leadership. In a session titled Growing Your Authority: Enhancing the Skills You Need to Thrive, she will share strategies for strengthening leadership skills, understanding your worth, and growing your impact.
“One of the easiest traps to fall into, whether you are a business owner, entrepreneur, founder, or seasoned business professional, is finding yourself spending your valuable time reacting all day,” says Chelette. “Instead of planning the day, the events happening around you determine what gets your attention. When you continually react instead of being deliberate and intentional, staying focused on your ultimate goals becomes almost impossible.”
Author of the book Happy Women Happy World: The Foolproof Fix that Takes You from Overwhelmed to Awesome, Chelette helps women tap into their potential. She provides visionaries and leaders with strategies, blueprints, and tangible tools and techniques that give clear steps to improve business systems and strengthen leadership skills and teams so that they can scale their impact. Her strategies have helped her clients to generate more than 30 million in revenue.
A first-generation immigrant who found herself $135,000 in debt as a single parent, Chelette transformed her passion for photography into a highly successful global business that she eventually sold to Bill Gates in a multimillion-dollar deal. She hosts “The Business Growth Architect Show” podcast and is among the “Top 100 Global Thought Leaders” by PeopleHum and “One of 50 Must-Follow Women Entrepreneurs” by HuffPost.
