Elif Köse is a transformational confidence coach, fashion designer and founder of The Leader Within You programme.
As a former full-time fashion designer who began her journey as an alteration girl with limited English, Elif Köse once held the belief that the key to confidence lay in finding the perfect outfit. She was captivated by the transformation of Wonder Woman, how her costume empowered her, and she emphasized the significance of outward appearance in bolstering confidence.
Through her impeccable tailoring skills, Elif bestowed a sense of empowerment upon countless individuals, even as she witnessed the weight of their insecurities.
When the pandemic forced her to close her high street shop, Elif delved into personal development, unearthing a deeper understanding of inner confidence. Through a transformative journey marked by breakthroughs, she discovered that the puzzle was far more intricate than she had imagined.
Elif then made it her mission to help others experience the same inner confidence, helping liberate women from the chains of their past, the opinions of others, and the need for external validation.
Elif Köse created The Leader Within You, a coaching and consultancy agency for women in business to bring together the world of female leaders and empower them to be their most authentic version with unshakable confidence.
Elif Köse grew up in a strict Muslim family and understands the societal pressures and challenges faced by women when it comes to finding their voice and feeling confident in their own skin. This is one of the reasons she has made it her mission is to help women build confidence and embrace their unique strengths and abilities.
Since her own transformation from fashion designer to women’s business coach, it has become Elif’s goal to help business women start making an impact with their product or service, as well as to create an even playing field for women, giving them an equal voice in the world of business. Sharpening their leadership skills, Elif helps women boost their confidence in business and unleash their full potential.
Striving to equip women with the tools they need to live a life of freedom, Elif helps women achieve complete abundance with financial freedom and independence.
Elif Köse offers a number of services that help support women maximise their potential, boost their confidence and grow their leadership skills. She provides one to one coaching, a 12-month sisterhood circle for driven, success-focused woman and a 12-week Passion to Profit online training programme. In 2024 she is hosting a Transformational Healing Retreat.
In 2023, Elif published her first book How to Build Confidence in 7 Steps, a self-help guide that helps women boost their confidence with a mix of practical exercises, personal stories, and expert guidance. The book offers a step-by-step plan for building inner strength and outer poise, strategies for setting realistic goals, networking intentionally, and taking care of their mental health.
The book is inspiring and motivating with real-life stories of women who have overcome challenges and developed the unshakeable inner confidence.
In the same year Elif published the Unshakeable Confidence Journal, a journaling guide for women to track their progress and see the bigger picture as they work towards their goals, following daily journaling prompts, inspiring quotes and reflective pages.
Elif Köse has been a phenomenal speaker at three of the events I have organised. She is always honest, open and knows how to inspire uplift and empower women. Elif offers a wealth of knowledge about fashion, confidence and business. I would recommend Elif in a heartbeat to speak at your event.
