Introverted & Confident (Heather Dempsey)

  • Episode #63

Many introverted and highly sensitive coaches feel that it’s more difficult for them to succeed in business than for their extroverted counterparts. Melinda and business coach Heather Dempsey talk about how to turn these characteristics into assets.

Heather Dempsey is a trauma-informed therapeutic business coach specializing in emotional health mindset and the psychology of business.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What does it mean to be a highly sensitive person?
  • How can being introverted, empathic or highly sensitive be an asset to entrepreneurship?
  • Feeling comfortable even if others are uncomfortable.
  • Reframing beliefs about sensitivity characteristics.
  • Helping clients who are introverted or highly sensitive.
  • Taking small steps to avoid overwhelm or jumping into something too quickly.
  • Building courage and confidence.
“I have experienced when it felt like a curse, and then I got to experience a transformation of when it was a superpower and a blessing. And I now recognize all the times that I won and succeeded were actually because of those traits.”
