Explore Confident Leadership Coaching

Imposter syndrome and people-pleasing don't belong on your to-do list 


(I'm here to help you scratch them off)

Radiating confidence is always a good idea....

...and it's time to address the elephant in the room.


As a woman leader, the quest for confidence

often feels like an uphill climb.

Society urges us to "fake it til you make it," to play by others' rules,

and always ask for permission, casting an unwelcome shadow of doubt.

The truth is, radiating confidence shouldn’t have to be an exhausting performance.

Genuine confidence, should feel as comfortable as slipping into your favorite pair of Sketchers. It's natural, empowering, and unequivocally you.

Imagine this. Waking up, shrugging off doubt, and embracing the day with unwavering, authentic confidence. 


You sit at the leadership table knowing it was made for you.

You lead with your unique style, replacing self-doubt with a symphony of self-assurance.

I get it. You're more than ready to conquer that lingering imposter feeling, to embrace the leader within you, and to shine with an inner confidence that’s as real as it is radiant.


It's not just a dream, but a journey that awaits you. Your guide is here.
Welcome to the start of your journey.

Meet Stacy Brookman

A leadership & resilience coach who's been in your shoes
Your ally on the road to genuine confidence

As the founder of Real Life Resilience, I've dedicated my career to equipping women leaders with the tools to banish self-doubt, overcome imposter syndrome, and command their rightful seat at the table.

My journey spans over 35 years, first navigating the corporate labyrinth, and then applying those hard-won insights to empower others. I've served in major corporations like State Farm Insurance, where I acted as a consultant for both corporate and regional offices, and at other organizations where I honed my skills as a speaking and presentation coach, curriculum creator and digital marketing coach.

But it's not just my corporate tenure that forms the backbone of my expertise. I also bring to the table an MBA in Entrepreneurship and certifications as a Life Coach and a Heartwork Journaling Instructor and Coach. This unique blend of qualifications empowers me to provide personalized, effective coaching. 


I've worked with everyone from CEOs to budding leaders, guiding them to conquer imposter syndrome and to lead with authenticity and grace.

My clients learn to break free from the "fake it till you make it" mindset and embrace genuine confidence.

My commitment?

Helping you take imposter syndrome and people-pleasing off your to-do list and transform into the valued, calm, and compassionate leader you were born to be.

So if you're ready to navigate the journey from self-doubt to self-assured leadership, I'm here, and I'm ready.

Let's make this happen. Together.

Working with me is not just about taking another course or following another leadership program.


It's about embarking on a transformative journey where you are the star of your own show.


From the moment we start, it's all about you and the change you seek.


It's about stripping away the false armor of "faking it till you make it" and tapping into the authentic leader within you.

Here's how it works:

As we work together, you'll start to see tangible changes. And the process is simple.

Step 1 - Discover 
Step 2 - Tailored Strategy
Step 3 - Transformation
Our journey begins with a personal exploration.


You won't be asked to choose from a menu of prepackaged services. Instead, we'll have an open and honest conversation about your aspirations, challenges, and the barriers you face.
Based on our conversation, I'll craft a bespoke coaching strategy, tailored to your specific needs and goals.


Leveraging my rich array of experience, tools, and insights, we'll move past generic advice to methods that work for you.
You'll begin to shed self-doubt, turn down the volume on imposter syndrome, and embrace your genuine confidence.


You'll step out of the shadows and command your rightful place as a leader. It's a journey, but one where every step is a victory.

About me

3 Quick Things to Know Me Better

Thing #1: I can brainstorm with anybody about anything. It’s my superpower! My second superpower is curiosity. When I put them together, I feel like nothing can stop me :)

Thing #2: My husband, Sam, and I have successfully nudged all the kids (his 2 boys and my 2 girls) out of the nest. Watching that early “adulting” stage is not for the faint of heart. Yikes!

Thing #3: The whole reason I created Real Life Resilience is because I know how important it is to have support when you know you want to reach comfortable confidence. The bottom line? I’m here to help you become the most confident, high-performing leader you can be!

If you're seeking to overcome self-doubt, navigate imposter syndrome, or simply unlock your true potential as a leader, the next step is clear.
