Build the resilience and confidence of your staff

In our challenging and uncertain world, the need for resilience and self-belief has never been more important.

We need our people to have the confidence to step up and contribute their ideas. To focus on how they can be useful and add value, without fear of criticism of being wrong or judged holding them back. We need them to be open to new experiences and to have the courage to take the opportunities that are presented to them.

A team of resilient, creative, confident people who actively collaborate together, rather than compete with one another is the goal and this program is the answer.

Where do confidence and self-esteem come from?

This is not actually the question to ask

Confidence, resilience, creativity, collaboration, resourcefulness, leadership are all the result of something else. And that foundation state you are actually seeking is self-worth.

A strong connection to Self-Worth is absolutely essential for growth and achieving success. What’s the difference you may wonder?

Some important distinctions



The reputation you have with yourself i.e. your personal positive or negative evaluations, it is primarily built upon sources outside of yourself that you can't actually control and so can fluctuate wildly



The confidence you have in your power and abilities i.e. your positive belief that you can generally accomplish what you set out to do. As it is subject to circumstances it fluctuates.


Self worth

Your intrinsic sense of worth as a person. It comes from within, is stable and as it's not contingent upon your behavior or performance it provides a strong foundation for contribution and fulfilment.

A commitment to strengthening the self-worth of your staff is like enriching the soil the crop is planted in, rather than simply sprinkling water on the leaves you can see.

It’s a long-term strategy yielding deep returns.

Some of the benefits of being anchored in self-worth


Robust Resilience: Swift recovery from setbacks (The Bouncibility or Tigger Factor!)

Enhanced Teamwork: thanks to embracing common purpose vs. ego & competition

Contribution focus instead of validation and approval seeking

Heightened positivity thanks to an opportunity and usefulness focus that comes from embracing curiosity

Increased Creativity as you're more open to learning and growing

Deeper Courage to deal with uncertainty and change and to take smart risks for growth

Improved confidence, energy and focus because you’re no longer at the mercy of an inner tyrant, your inner critic

When we drop the need for self-evaluation or to prove ourselves, we develop courage and can contribute more freely


Who is this Program for?

The RISE program will benefit all professionals, team members and leaders from a variety of backgrounds, industries and skill levels who wish to contribute value, collaborate, build rapport, lead with calm assurance and reach their full potential in their professional and personal lives. It’s especially useful for anyone who has experienced low confidence or imposter syndrome (which can be common for new recruits or newly promoted individuals) or has experienced setbacks that have damaged their belief in themselves.

What does the RISE for teams program cover?

In this program, participants will learn important principles, practices, and tools to build, strengthen and maintain their sense of worth and value. When individuals are anchored in this sense of self, they are open to challenges and growth and are able to contribute at a higher level, as they have access to their full personal power, skills and talents. An added bonus is the cascade effect this connection provides, typically spilling over into all areas of life.

RISE stands for:

RECOGNISE: the feeling of disconnection

INVESTIGATE: the source of the trigger

SEPARATE: from the story

EMBRACE: a new possibility

It is this simple, yet powerful practice that is at the heart of the program.


Program outcomes

  • Identify where they sit on the Self-Worth Continuum at any point in time and choose from a range of tools to boost their level of calm, confidence and presence
  • Understand the links between self-worth, self-confidence and self-efficacy (personal power)
  • Step out of their comfort zone and embrace their “growth edges”
  • Break through limiting stories.
  • Empower themselves through “bookend” rituals
  • Recognise the thinking distortions that can weaken their ability to freely contribute ideas, feedback and ability to build rapport and act and how to use cognitive reframing instead
  • Broaden their emotional vocabulary so they are able to be a clear, confident communicator and recognise when they need to step up, step in or step back
  • Challenge automatic negative thoughts, using four simple steps
  • Understand how to work “in stride”, aligned with their natural talents and strengths
  • Reduce fear of failure, by adopting a self-compassionate mindset
  • Understand how to utilise powerful “Identity” habits instead of short term “Outcome” habits
  • Master the perspective shifts that allow them to easily move self-doubt to self-belief and from competition to collaboration

The RISE Program is delivered in four stages


Group presentation via ZOOM where the principles of self-worth reconnection are shared. This two-hour session featured break out rooms for active discussion about and application of the core concepts.


Each participant completed their own Instinctive Drives© profile, receiving a comprehensive, personal report and access to deep dive videos.


All participants are given access to the Centre for Self-Worth online Training Portal where the Five Module ‘RISE” program resides alongside a library of additional resources and reading materials. These short, focused video trainings and downloadable exercises are designed to be completed over a 5-week period in a “flipped classroom” format where the content is completed before attending a group coaching call to discuss the concepts and ensure all questions are addressed, and progress and insights celebrated! Access to the course materials and the library is maintained for a 12-month period at no extra charge.


The RISE experience includes: discussions, assessment, reflection, quizzes, activities, exercises, and practices.

The Self-Worth Continuum

The Self-Worth Continuum© is a key personal orientation tool that is explored in the Rise Program. Self-worth connection is a fluid concept, not a linear experience, and participants will discover how and why it can fluctuate under different circumstances and more importantly, they will master the RISE process to quickly bounce back up and re-anchor themselves in calm, confident self-support again.

Self-Worth Continuum

I’m delighted to meet you!

Hello, I'm Angela Raspass

I'm a Business Mentor, Author and Self-Worth Educator.

After a corporate career, I'd grown my own successful marketing agency business from my dining room table to an office and a small, full-time team by 2012. I had a wonderful husband, two great kids, and a beautiful home…

But even though things looked good on the outside, that had a lot to do with projection and pride. I knew I'd created a business unconsciously. I'd leveraged my skills and followed the shoulds and those strategies had worked. Until they just didn't anymore. Until I realised that bigger does not necessarily mean better and that skills are important but values, more so. My business was no longer a fit for the woman I'd become, a woman utterly changed by overcoming addiction and living in sobriety since 2006.

The lessons I'd learned in the Recovery Movement had opened my eyes and my heart. They'd allowed me to excavate and embrace my self-worth. They'd help me to banish Imposter Syndrome and escape the Comparison Trap. I've written a new story of enoughness, and once you know your value, once you change from the inside out, it can never be "business as usual" again.

I've combined my personal journey with studies in neuroscience, Acceptance Commitment Training (ACT), Instinctive Drives profiling and positive psychology, to create the Rise Program for teams, so you can support your staff to enjoy the resilience, confidence, creativity, courage and results that self-worth reconnection delivers.
