Do you ever find yourself holding back on pursuing your dreams? Do you want that promotion but fear keeps you from taking the next step? Aiko Bethea, founder of RARE Coaching and Consulting and Senior Director for Brene Brown Education and Research Group, had achieved significant success in her roles as attorney for the city of Atlanta and later, deputy director for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  Impacted by the social justice issues that plague our society, Aiko chose to shift her work to focus on helping organizations like Bristol Myers Squibb, Intuit, Starbucks, and Uber create more equitable and inclusive environments. In this episode, Aiko shares how to increase your confidence, begin the journey of rediscovery and select the right coach to help you along the way.
