Get Step into Your Moxie® Certified

Are you a coach, trainer, or therapist who empowers clients to speak up for themselves and the ideas and issues they’re passionate about?

Do you support employees to speak with confidence, deliver powerful presentations, give actionable feedback, or close more sales?

Do you show women or members of marginalized groups how to advocate for themselves and their communities?  

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, you could be the perfect fit for Step into Your Moxie® Certification.

Why Should I Get Certified?

Whether you have your own consulting business or you support employees, women, or marginalized community members in a more traditional j-o-b, you likely are driven to help others speak with confidence, clarity, and conviction because your journey to voice has been… complicated.

Maybe you have a history of tap dancing on eggshells as you strive to be liked, give the right answers, and you contort yourself into whomever you think other people want you to be.

Maybe you have spent much of your life hustling for outward approval. You know you were born to make a big, positive impact. But you often find yourself using your voice to go after visibility and leadership opportunities in order to feel significant.

Maybe loved ones, educators, employers, and society have judged you because of where you were born or what you look like. You feel like there is a glass ceiling for your success. As a result, you’ve played small and lost sight of your authentic voice. You yearn to speak up and serve your way while addressing systemic oppression that hurts others like you.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could change your communication with yourself and the communication you put out in the world?

And, in the process, positively (and radically!) help other people step into their moxie?

What is Step into Your Moxie® Certification?

Praise for Alexia Vernon and Her Programs

“I work primarily with BIPOC women in leadership roles, and I have an executive client who wanted support to prepare for an upcoming panel at a prestigious industry event. As part of our coaching session, I was able to employ a couple of Step into Your Moxie® Certification exercises; one to help with fielding potential ‘curveball’ questions from the audience and another one that helped her experience dialing up/dialing down the way she projected herself as she practiced her opening statement.

The exercises really helped, and she loved the experiential nature of them. Plus, she’ll be able to rewatch our Zoom recording to see how she comes across to an audience, i.e., what feels too much in her body won’t come across that way when she re-watches herself.

She found these exercises far more impactful than other presentation/public speaking training she’s taken in the past.

Thank you again, Alexia, for creating a wonderful program for us to help others step into their moxie.”

Pauline Cheung

Executive and Leadership Coach

“I’ve been able to use Step into Your Moxie® Certification in a variety of way. I infuse it into my 1:1 coaching by pulling in the different activities to support my clients with building their confidence. I use them so they can practice asking for what they want and to share their stories in a powerful way. I’m also weaving our training into my daily conversations with prospects, during my workshops, as I pull in activities to get the group engaged, and on Clubhouse and podcast interviews to illustrate a point.

Using our presentation resources, I built out a new signature talk on speaking, and I have been using our Business Development Resources from Certification and pitching like crazy. I’ve already given two virtual presentations with it. One had 700 people and the second had 2000 people!

I also am co-leading a three-day in person retreat in March with two colleagues, and I’ll be using the half-day Step into Your Moxie® thought leadership curriculum. Plus, I’m in talks to lead a one-day Step into Your Moxie® curriculum with another partner. I loved all of the training, and the resources have helped me grow my business in new ways I’d never imagined.”

Darlene Hawley

Personal Branding and Business Coach

“I invested in the Step into Your Moxie® Certification because I wanted to become more adept at facilitation and have tried-and-true modules that I could incorporate into my own material. The depth of the experience – both in terms of learning how to facilitate as well as the personal growth and development I went through – was stunning. In addition to incorporating the Moxie “curriculum stacks” into my own work, I now plan on leading my own Step into Your Moxie® events because the transformation I underwent was so moving and so valuable to me as a coach and thought leader. I want my community to experience it as well.

Lastly, as a lawyer who was trained in persuasion, I thought I knew a lot about moving people to take action. It turns out there was so much more for me to learn! This experience taught me so much about the art of persuasion, getting into the heads and hearts of the people I am speaking to, reverse engineering the outcomes I desire, and asking questions that will lead people to that conclusion. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to communicate, lead, and facilitate with certainty.”

“I cannot say enough great things about completing Certification. The entire program is so well laid out, giving me a very clear sense of direction in terms of how I can use this content and all the tools in a multitude of ways with various audiences.  Having the opportunity to practice using the tools during the 3-day in person part of Certification was invaluable. I plan to use these materials in corporate trainings, with my business coaching clients, and in the community of moms I lead. Alexia did a beautiful job weaving these crucial elements in throughout the entire Certification process. If you’re looking to up-level your speaking and leadership skills, this certification is for you.”

“When I first signed up to get certified, I wasn’t sure how I was going to transition into using this work, but it’s unfolded organically. I’m filming two courses for an e-learning company that are related to communication. 

I used our training on vocal empowerment to give a couple of presentations at a healthcare facility, and I’ve received an invitation to participate in a think tank. 

Thank you for this experience, Alexia.”

Dr. Sweta Chawla, PharmD 

Speaker, Facilitator, and Leadership Coach

“Thank you for this incredible content and material! I have been using so many of the Step into Your Moxie® exercises with my one-on-one clients, in board retreats that I’m doing with non-profits, and I just sold my first vocal empowerment workshop to a company. I used the higher end of the pricing range recommended in the training materials, as well as the marketing descriptions provided, and the company gladly paid it. The curriculum was so easy to follow, and it helped me shine as a facilitator. Everyone was engaged, the role playing was fun, and the entire experience was amazing for me and for the group. I’m so glad I chose to get certified. It’s really helping me grow my coaching business.”

“Alexia is a brilliant coach, intuitive mentor, and wordsmith. As a psychologist, I’ve seen a lot of people connect with their clients, but I have NEVER seen anyone as gifted as Lex. Working with Lex I got overwhelmingly more than I expected because she is so brilliant.”

“Alexia has a way of combining solid business advice and mentorship with a sensitivity and humanness to one’s personality and purpose. One conversation with Lex helped me negotiate an extra five-figures of revenue [for a corporate engagement]. Working with Lex has been an amazing experience and delightfully exceeded my expectations.”

“I just facilitated my first conference session using Step into Your Moxie® resources, and I got amazing reviews. This opportunity also led to me pitching my first corporation. Plus, I have my first official keynote coming up, and it’s on vocal empowerment. I’ve been able to use our Moxie resources for that too. I’m really grateful for all the opportunities coming my way as a result of getting certified.”
