Finally, if you’re willing to initiate self-change, the Define Your True Self course will open up a whole new world of leadership possibilities

Overcome Stress, Chaos, and Uncertainty

Is reactivity dominating your life? Do you feel “stretched too thin,” as if you can never do enough? 

Is conflict making you feel as if you can’t manifest positive change, ultimately leading to frustration and burnout? 

Do you feel disconnected or anxious in life and work?

Rational problem solving can only take us so far. What’s missing is your ability to listen to your heart and body as well as your mind. 

Let Me Show You the Way

Hi there, leader! I’m Karen Tax, a holistic leadership coach with IAMX.

What does that mean? It means that I work with logic-driven leaders just like you to help them bring their biggest, boldest, and best self to the table every single day (and inspire the same in others). These are people who are making real, impactful changes, but who simultaneously struggle with habits that keep them stuck in “reaction mode” when they should be in “proactive mode.” 

I’ve developed this comprehensive Define Your True Self course to empower you to get those great ideas out of your mind and implemented in the real world. I want to show you how to positively impact your environment while avoiding burnout. Finally, I want to show you how defining your true self (and sticking to it) can change your life and career for the better.

Our Mindfulness Method

We have fully integrated mindfulness into Define Your True Self’s curriculum. Whether you’re familiar with mindfulness concepts or not, we promise that you’ll quickly see the benefits:

Mindfulness is all about being present, especially with what is going on inside of you. 

Mindfulness helps you realize how much power you have over your reactions.

Most of us lack the skills to be present with our inner activities. In fact, many of us were taught “skills” that actually exacerbate our inner struggles:

  1. Attempting cognitive control actually perpetuates anxiety. Forcing yourself to sleep only leads to more anxiety. 
  2. Reactivity inhibits learning and growth because it leaves no time to reflect. 
  3. Being overly positive oppresses our emotional range. Releasing anger is healthy. Suppressing anger is not. 
  4. Avoidance and denial keep us disconnected from our calm, powerful center. Don’t sell your soul to fit in!

Define Your True Self incorporates mindfulness because – at the end of the day – it is essential to reconnect us to our true selves. Be it good, bad, or ugly, there’s always something new about ourselves to discover. And you know what? We’re at our best when we’re open, non-reactive, and centered. Mindfulness is like a drawer that’s always there, providing us access to our innermost thoughts and feelings whenever we need it!

The Journey themes we’ll explore together

We begin by exploring the territories of  your true self that allow you to feel more in control. You’ll access untapped potential and address the root cause of reactive habits. 

Theme 1
Start from Center

We explore how to use your power of choice to change how you relate to and engage with challenges, by tapping into newly emerging inner resources. 

Theme 2

Choosing allows you to define who you are. Now you can identify as your powerful true self and eliminate the inner source of conflict and burnout.

Theme 3

As your true self clarity deepens, you’ll naturally bring more of your talents to life. Now you can be confident using true self awareness to navigate chaos and uncertainty.

Theme 4

Face challenges as your true self taps deep inner potential and energy. Now you can focus that energy to increase opportunities and powerfully create positive influence.

Theme 5

Experience being your true self restores balance and stabilizes your energy. Now you can fine tune that energy as stories you tell including being masterful at being with challenges

Theme 6

Constraints that limited you before are now openings for new potential. Now the action you take is deeply inspired. It naturally attracts the best talent and unleashes collective potential!

Theme 7
Inspired Action

The course takes you into a whole new world of abundance, where — instead of being afraid — you can riff with confidence about challenges & conflict. It’s completely changed the way I handle things.
