Build your Self-Leadership
to thrive in business, work & life

The women I support are often aware that they are holding themselves back from stepping fully into their next chapter even though they've experienced success and satisfaction on many levels.

They're ready to stretch and grow, pursue new dreams, share new ideas, change direction, make a bigger contribution to their community and the world...

But something is slowing them down, turning down their volume, tapping on their brakes.

Self-doubt and external definitions of success are often the culprits

My clients tell me that:

  • self-doubt
  • fear of judgment, and
  • concern about what they feel they should be doing

can become significant obstacles in their pursuit of expansion and change.

Self-doubt cuts across all demographics, psychographics, industries, positions, and life stages. We think we've dealt with it and then it has the audacity to pop up again, groundhog day style.

It's frustrating, it's restrictive and it lies, recycling old stories, relying on comparison, social conditioning, and external definitions of success that are often completely irrelevant to how you actually want to work and live.

Fortunately, there is a powerfully effective approach to managing this obstacle - building your Self-Leadership capacity.


Self-Leadership: Defn:  Actively developing a confident sense of who you are, taking ownership of what you do, and being intentional about where you are going.

A whole new world opens up when you can lead yourself.

Self-Leadership is the key to thriving in Your Next Chapter

To lead yourself effectively you need to know who you are and what's most important to you.

  • Identifying and then leveraging your unique talents, skills, and strengths enables you to set and pursue aligned goals that are ultimately more satisfying and enriching
  • Understanding your personality and emotions provides important insights into your tendencies to think and react in certain ways. This knowledge then allows you to influence yourself, choose to respond more consciously, and change habits that no longer serve you
  • Knowing your values allows you to appreciate what matters most to you and this awareness enables you to make better decisions on how you will conduct business, work, and life.
  • Owning your worth and the value you create provides you with clarity, creativity, and the internal authority that delivers enduring, solid confidence
  • Supporting your physical needs with mindfulness, good nutrition, movement, and nourishing rest determines the level of vitality and capacity you have to support your vision

Self-Leadership development transforms you into a fully empowered individual with a transformed mindset and the tools and practices to thrive.

The PERMA Model of Positive Psychology

Widely acknowledged as the "father" of Positive Psychology, Dr. Seligman’s PERMA™ theory of well-being outlines five building blocks that enable flourishing – Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment (hence PERMA™).

There are many different routes to a flourishing life and the Positive Psychology approach is descriptive, not prescriptive. You ultimately decide what choices to make or what to value, but research shows us that when you make more informed choices to live a more fulfilling life that is aligned with your values and interests, you are far more likely to thrive.

Thus. my Self Leadership coaching and facilitation approach is anchored in the principles of PERMA.

What is the Self Leadership Program Experience?

The Positive Self-Leadership program is a four-stage coaching experience typically experienced over a 12-week period.

It is grounded in an evidence-based Positive Psychology approach delivered through personal coaching calls via ZOOM, email communication, and online bonus video modules.


Part One: Cultivating Self Awareness
Know yourself

Research suggests that when we have accurate self-assessment, we're more confident and creative, able to make sounder decisions, build stronger relationships, and communicate more effectively. Thus, we begin with a comprehensive self-discovery process where we explore your:

  • Current level of Self Leadership
  • Values
  • Strengths
  • Personal Vision & goals

This allows us to identify your growth edges to work with and to begin to design the path forward towards the goals that are most important to you.


Part Two: Cognitive Skills
Thinking clearly

Our inner mental models determine what we perceive from the external world, how we think about it, what emotions are evoked, how we react, and consequently, the results that we produce. Thus we focus on:

  • Developing constructive thought patterns to improve the quality of your inner dialogue, transforming it from critic to sage
  • Identifying and reframing limiting beliefs, unconscious fears, and assumptions such as overgeneralising, all-or-nothing thinking, or systematically discounting the positive.
  • Moving from over-reliance on external validation (self-esteem) to internal advocacy (self-worth)
How do you make a decision in your business

Part Three - Emotional Dexterity
Feeling deeply

Developing emotional intelligence and literacy, what I refer to as Emotional Dexterity, helps you to become more adaptable and resilient in times of change and uncertainty. You will be able to harness higher levels of self-efficacy and access a sense of equilibrium and clarity to work with more ease toward your goals.

We look at:

  • Your emotional vocabulary
  • Emotional regulation
  • Effective communication
  • The React - Respond - Rise Process
  • The skill of self-compassion
Self Leadership Coaching Program - the RISE PROCESS

Part Four: Self-Motivation
Acting intentionally

Self-motivation stems from genuine interest and passion and thus success, as you define it, often requires that you rely on your own acumen and self-belief to see your vision through. Motivating yourself to achieve without deadlines or emotional support takes focus and self-belief.

We look at:

  • Self-Determination Theory
  • Positive Goal-Setting Principles
  • Self-Reflection practices
  • Natural Reward strategies
  • Discernment in decision making

Who is The Positive Self-Leadership Program designed for?

I have created this program for women who are frustrated by a sense of knowing that they've not yet reached their potential, contributed what they are capable of, or chosen what they're really aching to do.

If you are:

  • At a crossroads in your life, keen to make new decisions for the next stage of life that really serve you
  • Tired of listening to that negative voice inside, but not sure how to quieten it
  • Keen to start a business, change the direction of the one you already have, or simply launch a new service... but have not yet made the leap
  • Wanting to pursue a promotion or a new career path, but keep holding yourself back
  • Stuck in comparison, feeling less than, not enough, or that you've left it too late
  • Unsure of how to turn your ideas into reality, stuck in procrastination or perfectionism
  • Berating yourself - surely by now, at this age you "should have it together?"

The Positive Self Leadership program will help you to turn the page and begin your next chapter.

Angela Raspass - Coach and Self Leadership Educator

Hello there, I'm Angela Raspass.

I'm a Positive Self-Leadership Coach, Author and Speaker.

Back in 2012 I realised that bigger does not necessarily mean better and that a successful business is not a great consolation prize for a life where I felt overworked, unhealthy, unfulfilled, and just not happy. That realisation took me down a new path, my own Next Chapter, the business you have found here today.

Since then, I've combined my years of business and life coaching with studies in Positive Psychology, Neuroscience, Acceptance Commitment Training (ACT), EFT,  Strengths Profiling, and a library of books and seminars to focus on the power of Self-Leadership.

I want to anchor you in this vital skill set so you can develop the discernment, resilience, confidence, courage, and self-belief to create the future that best fits you in Your Next Chapter.

What is it like to work with me?
