Author Event: Lisa Sun
Need a little more confidence in your life? Join us for Lisa Sun's author event where she will explain what "Gravitas" means to her.
In her book GRAVITAS: The 8 Strengths That Redefine Confidence (Hay House; September 12, 2023), Lisa Sun breaks everything we have previously known about confidence. She explains that while there is no silver bullet to achieving self-belief, confidence is a choice that everyone can make. That choice can lead you to gravitas, which Sun defines as a total approach to living life with self-assurance. People can’t change their behaviors until they change their mindset, Sun maintains, and changing that mindset requires inner reflection and real work. Through proprietary research and her own life experiences, Sun has cracked the code to help women build self-worth on their own terms. A noted fashion entrepreneur, founder of lifestyle brand Gravitas and former McKinsey & Company consultant, Sun was told in her first review as a business analyst that she “lacked gravitas.” This feedback kicked off a two-decade long exploration of the concept of confidence and what it means to truly know your own value.
Sun has distilled her research and her own process of self-discovery, complemented by her decade of work as a consultant and a 1,000-person survey of women of all ethnicities, age groups, and life stages, into GRAVITAS. In it she reveals the eight strengths that every woman can call upon to be confident and successful. The strengths you embody the most are what Sun calls your “confidence language,” which is the basis of your self-belief. Once you figure out your confidence language, you can channel the power that comes with it, acknowledge where you would like to grow, and ultimately fully realize gravitas.
