"Engineers have computers; painters, canvas; musicians, instruments. Leaders have only themselves. The instrument of leadership is the self, and the mastery of the art of leadership comes from mastery of the self. Leadership is self-development… And it starts with taking a look inside” Kouzes and Posner
What is CALM Power™?
Career and Leadership Mastery Power
CALM Power™ is a safe, compassionate, mindful, yet challenging space to connect with and experience coaching, using a multigenerational approach for emerging women leaders like you!
This will influence the way you show up as a leader. You learn to be aware of your emotions, sense the emotions in others, while remaining calm, mindful, and INTENTIONAL under pressure. This is the foundation for coaching, leading yourself, and leading others.
You will continually connect and strengthen your
Leader from Within!
This will help to answer:
- How do you stand out?
- How You Are Capable in the Future of Fulfilling your Mission and Vision.
- How could you be part of creating and sustaining more diverse leadership styles for yourself and others?
As a result, you will know and value yourself as an Emerging Leader so that you:
Get hired into your ideal job or shape your leadership journey, so that you are aligned with your Leadership Dashboard.
You will NAVIGATE and ADVOCATE for what's most important to you and those you serve, such as:
- Creating a role just for you to inspire others.
- Influencing & encouraging teams.
- Being noticed for your executive presence.
- Helping you get that promotion and succeed to the next level.
- Earning respect and responsibility.
- Finding your personal leadership brand
- Stop People Pleasing and be assigned to roles that are visible to bottom line contribution.
- Doing something you love every single day!
- Being radically self-aware of the undercurrent of bias in your system and create a community to support one another.
- Authentically expressing yourself.
CALM Power™ is a holistic integration of your purpose, gifts, passions, strengths, stories, and all other competencies that encourages you to focus your leadership ambitions in a more meaningful, intentional, and conscious center.
This way of leading comes from the “inside out.” It is that quiet voice that asks us to pause and ask the deeper questions on our journey of our own career and leadership path:
- Who are we leading?
- What are we leading?
- Where are we leading?
- How are we leading?
- Why are we leading?
- What system biases are real for you? What will you need to navigate and advocate for yourself?
This coaching helps you naturally build the strength and stamina to lead with total presence, bringing all of yourself to your purpose, clarifying who you want to serve, while serving & reaping the rewards of feeling deeply present, despite barriers and adversity.
You will know CALM Power™ when you feel it! So does the room you enter!
Owning Your Powerful Leadership Presence is much more than just showing up. It’s about having a clear message about who you are and what you want to communicate to make a difference for yourself and those around you.
I’m excited to create this space so that together, we will open our hearts, will, and minds to discover our future leader waiting to EMERGE STRONGER!
In Collaboration we build a NEST of leadership confidentiality and courage!
Are you ready?
Yes! I'm finally ready to feel...
Seen, Heard and Understood, even if it begins with me!
I Refuse to BE INVISIBLE!!!
Don’t allow chaos, bias, and the status quo to keep you stuck and irrelevant in a system or ways of thinking that do not encourage competent and talented leaders like you.
"Labels No More"!
Ditch the Imposter Syndrome Label thrown
In community we have the power to transform ourselves and others by our words and actions to
EMERGE STRONGER TOGETHER!
This is the Essence of CALM Power™!
I Understand That When I Act Now,
I am joining...
A 6 month coaching partnership with a variety of NEXT GEN Emerging Leaders!
(3 month fastracking is available).
You will be hosted by International Coaching Federation Certified Career and Executive Coach, Shelley Cox. After 20 years of partnering with women from large to small organizations, she quickly realized that having coaching conversations resulted in all women having Purpose, Power, and Presence, which is at the heart of sustaining feminine leaders in a multi-generational, command and control, ever changing, complex, and diverse world!
Let's find our leadership voice and presence NOW! We are ready to be represented and respected for our valuable contributions, competent know how, & wisdom! Many of us have navigated personal and professional adversities and disappointments.
This Has Made us STRONGER and Is the Work I Do and Love!
I invite you to use coaching and mindfulness as a FOCUSING and INTENTIONAL performance technique, so you continue to see results.
Unfortunately, you may have internalized a “feel lucky to have a job" mindset early in your career! I can still hear a former boss repeatedly reminding me of this scarcity way of being! The workplace can often be biased and toxic. This often diminishes our light and potential!
CALM Power™ will remind you of your natural resourcefulness and inner leader who never gives up! With repeated systemic messaging and disappointments began a pattern of lowered confidence and shame that cannot be rectified in our systems overnight, yet, pausing can be just the rest you need to build your strength and stamina to be the change you want to see!
We start believing that raising our consciousness in our career somehow threatens the bottom line!
This often has us feeling stuck and riddled with the critical voice of "The Quacking Duck", believing we are unworthy of advocating for supportive mentors, sponsorship, or a coaching partner! You lose the stamina and strength to lead more senior leadership positions or to grow your entrepreneurial endeavor if this remains a pattern!
YET... it is that quiet voice that asks us to listen internally, asking the deeper questions such as how, why and for whom do we lead that is our secret to success.
And only you can define SUCCESS for you...
The problem is common and devastating to YOU and also the innovation and progress that may stay dormant inside you...
CALM Power ™
Change happens when you have self-insight about your own patterns and values that may not be serving your next career move:
Different Generations of women carry wounds and patterns that become areas that are not discussed. We end up staying stuck in mindsets where we become resistant to change! We need to step up with CONFIDENCE and COMMUNITY to Stay Relevant!
"One generation plants the trees, the other gets the shade." Chinese Proverb
Does this sound like YOU?
- You're a high achiever, wired to believe that hard work deserves accolades, so you work long and hard expecting to be noticed. Instead of gaining visibility, you feel invisible and lack the feedback needed to move forward!
- You constantly feel under pressure believing you need to prove that you are the best over and over, while never quite knowing what your next step is.
- You avoid taking risks and entering difficult conversations to avoid failure and then wonder why you feel defeated.
- You ensure the job gets done, yet feel devastated when others take credit or politically ensure your reputation is more that of a doer than leader, all due to strategic positioning and lack of visibility.
- On an endless treadmill knowing your leadership career is not an example of your true authentic self or aligned with your outside projects or organization.
- You are juggling so many tasks; you know what they are! On top of that, we have social media expectations, pressure to look like celebrities, heath issues of both you and your kids, and so on....
Don’t forget date night, exercise and more…
- You may be heading for burnout or a crisis.
- You are great, even an expert at what you do, and you know it. Despite this, you are not yet being recognized with clients, peers, or senior leaders. This needs to stop!
- You know the system is full of bias so you feel like giving up…
Because you are a high achiever you can drive yourself to far beyond the breaking point… not listening to your inner messages and body!
Your strengths and your phenomenal professional capacity has helped you rise quickly in your career, perhaps even threatening the status quo...
You meet and exceed all KPI’s - Key Performance Indicators... You may even be considered an EXPERT...
But do you have the support, confidence, and competencies to transition into personal and professional leadership?
The strength to Beat the BIAS..

To Your Success,
P.S. - Don't just take my word for it... take a look at these testimonials from Happy and Emerging Next Gen Women Leaders just like you!
“When I first connected with Shelley what I noticed right away was her ability to see me - the real me, and see my potential! I immediately felt understood, safe, and supported. She held me capable from day one to make the changes I needed, to ensure successful personal development and to both persevere and preserve the charity organization that I founded. As a gifted mindful listener, she showed empathy and respect, balanced with an ability to challenge me to refocus and with confidence, to own my powerful purpose, and presence! I chose to join her CALM Power™ Coaching group of diverse emerging leaders and it was life changing. I learned so much and have noticed immense growth in all areas of my leadership presence. In summary, it was inspiring and transformational. It’s difficult to put into words the energy that was created, despite COVID-19 and other difficult circumstances! She trusted all of us to own our potential. Shelley is meant to Coach! I find myself often thinking about her words, remembering them and acting upon them. With this supportive and sometimes vulnerable sharing, the CALM Power™ energy motivated me to apply for the National Change Makers Award from Alan Doyle’s A Dollar a Day Foundation, which I became the WINNER of. This includes a generous $15,000 donation and Official Charter Charity Status for my organization, No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society, which will now receive annual funding to help grow the organization and increase our impact. This means the world to our charity! Thank you, Shelley, for creating The Coaching Nest, so I can continue to EMERGE STRONGER and follow my purpose!”
– Elsie Morden
(Singer, Songwriter, Speaker, Founder & CEO of No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society)
I approached The Coaching Nest when a promotion to Credit Manager came sooner than expected with less than a week’s notice, with no replacement for my position. My challenge was to step up to the role and take over all new responsibilities, in addition to my own. The event happened just two weeks before COVID which presented another set of challenges and now I believe opportunities. I felt that Shelley held an intention that I was more than capable, which allowed me to organize my focus, reconnect with my team, and pursue an efficient plan of action uniquely tailored to my experience and abilities in this unexpected moment. Each week in CALM Power,™ a diverse group of women met in a nonjudgmental space and went through mindful exercises and self- leadership competencies. The Coaching Nest was where I reconnected with my leadership confidence as I went through the process of engaging with other managers. The result is our books are in better shape than they have been in years! I recruited, hired and trained my replacement and feel like I am in a good position to continue the transition in a purposeful direction! The energy from the CALM Power™ Coaching group helped keep me grounded, strong and confident through the most stressful time of my career.
“What led me to The Coaching Nest were some very specific challenging personal and professional questions. I had just reached a milestone birthday and was reflecting on the choices I had made. I was having trouble picturing who I wanted to become. To be honest, I was feeling completely lost and overwhelmed. The CALM Power™ Coaching Group was made up of women who also were looking for clarity and confidence to own their purpose, power, and presence, to be a leader without a title! Shelley held an intention that helped me remember that I have not always been lost. Through Power Stories™ and strength spotting, I remembered that I am a badass who has achieved some pretty cool things! With this renewed competence and confidence, I decided to take a leap of faith and go back to school to finish my degree. I am so grateful to Shelley and the amazing women in my group for their support and guidance.”
When I found myself out of work in the midst of COVID, I was seriously concerned about my next career move. I worried that it would take too long and be a financial strain. I also worried that when I did find a new position, I have to take a salary cut. Worst of all, I worried that I would have to sacrifice happiness to get “just a job”. Then I started CALM Power™. I met a group of amazing women who supported me and encouraged me to be my authentic self, to stay focused on my values and to not underestimate my worth. I went deeper owned my power, purpose, presence and did not sacrifice finances! I Emerged Strong as a leader and a new CFO. In the end, the job came to me – not the other way around. I am confident that this next move will be the most rewarding phase of my career.
"Have you ever reached a moment in your life when you say to yourself, “Enough is enough! Something’s gotta give. And I need help to make this happen!” I’m sure you can relate. This happened to me! I love my job but the stress was taking over and I had to find a way to change that! Then I found Shelley! An angel on this earth I never knew exisited. It wasn’t long before I found myself on a journey to self-awareness with Shelley by my side. It is amazing to learn how many people in this world have no real understanding of who they are. Not even me! If you have no idea who you are, how can you know where you’re going? I also learned how precious it is to appreciate ‘the present’. These days I stop to smell the roses. By this I actually mean that I have incorporated useful breathing techniques into my daily routine that help me get calm and balanced – Shelley taught me this. It is amazing how wonderful my day can be when I take time to release oxygen into my brain so that you can think more clearly and calmly. I am who I am today because of my personal desire to achieve great things in life. I could not have done this without hearing Shelley’s constant whispers. She will remain my lifetime career and leadership coach; my lifetime confidant!"

"Thank you so much for this coaching relationship. I can only describe it as transformational both personally and professionally. I see more opportunities for growth in my career and leadership journey! I consider our partnership and paths crossing serendipitous"!
Julie- Educational Leader
We have a great group of women in our session, and it is very comforting to know I can freely share what I’m experiencing and know that I’m not alone.
Everyone had a different way of looking at the discussion points that were brought forward, sparking new ideas, perspectives, and “aha moments” that the whole group could use!
Overall, this was an amazing program that allowed me to harness my leadership power and presence by getting “unstuck” in a supportive and honest environment!
Group Review - Co-operators
I really appreciated how the group was able to safely and mindfully share stories. This quickly led to a new appreciation of how working together with a strong and mindful team can hold you accountable for things, and create a space to truly achieve what you have set your mind to.
We learned that patience is key even when it comes to yourself and things that you might have wanted to do, but have put them on the backburner.
Making goals and tracking accomplishments, then rewarding yourself after you achieved your goal is an amazing feeling, and Shelley’s CALM Power group acted as the perfect space to facilitate this growth!
Group Review - Co-operators
"Thank you, Shelley, for the valuable insights that you have given me over the last year. The coaching circle was such a great place to connect and work through hurdles and celebrate successes with other like-minded women. You helped guide me through some areas that I needed coaching on and as a result I am much more confident in myself. The CALM Power program helped me identify my strengths and be more assertive in setting boundaries. The guidance from the program has helped me professionally and personally. Thanks so much for your leadership over the past year".
Sarah B. - Co-operators
"Thank you so much, Shelley, for this wonderful experience! It was such a joy to come together with other professional women and learn from each other, support each other, and celebrate our journeys. Your coaching helped me rediscover my strengths and celebrate them – not focus on the areas I can’t control. I’ve learned to carve out time for myself to focus on being present and calm which has helped build my confidence and concentration. Thank you for your leadership and guidance."
Katherine L. - Co-operators
"My time in CALM Power gave me the confidence and competence to speak up more and take time back into my life. I have learned that I can not always say yes to everyone, and that it is important to have time to myself included in my schedule. I have experienced a bit of backlash from saying “no” to events and people, however it has left me with a more calm, relaxed life while still maintaining my sense of purpose and helpfulness (as I am still busy helping, but picking and choosing what I do and when I do it!)"
