Masterclass: Break Free of Good Girl Brainwashing

1 class
60 minutes


Good Girl Brainwashing trains women to stay silent and work towards an impossible standard of perfection. Good girl behavior—perfectionism, people-pleasing self-effacing modesty—may have served us growing up, but it becomes especially detrimental in the workplace. Trained to constantly see failure instead of opportunity, the perfectionist part of us is always waiting for someone else’s permission and asking, “Do you think I’m ready?” instead of asking, “How high, how fast, and when do I start?”

In this masterclass, students will be guided through exercises on:

  • How to identify and release good girl habits

  • How to silence subconscious voices that sabotage your confidence

  • How to embrace power over perfection to take action
