The Importance of Community and an Inclusive Culture

Want to transform your life experience into more impact and joy in the world? I had the honor of interviewing Ideagen Global VP, author of S.W.A.K., CEO of The Italian Place and mother of 3, Adriana Sifakis.

SO GOOD! Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. COVID-19 has been a time to slow down and put on our thinking cap in order to decide how to best change as we more forward
  2. Yes, you can create your destiny with some help and a lot of hard work
  3. Sitting on the floor and crying or wanting to give up (many times:) is normal. Get some help and push through the challenges
  4. Try to help others in which ever small or big way you are able

Strategic Communications for Women in Business

I am so excited and honored to have interviewed Nathalie Gauthier. She is an Assistant Vice President, Global Markets Technology-Proj Mgmt Office for State Street, a leading financial services firm out of Boston. Nathalie shares her tools and tips in strategic communications.

SO GOOD! Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. Take ownership... ask what is my place in this and how can I improve?
  2. Practice in a 'warm' environment... prior to a high stakes conversation, practice with family or peers.
  3. 'Warm' the room... reach out to those you will communicate with prior to meeting and run your ideas by them, allow them to 'poke holes' and also understand their perspective.
  4. Be bold and brief... ask #WWWD/S (what would a white man do/say)

Secrets to Avoid Getting Stuck (Get Ready to Make a Shift!)

Secrets to Avoid Getting Stuck (Get Ready to Make a Shift!)

I hope you, your loved ones and colleagues are all staying healthy!

Did you know that it will take 2-4 weeks for pipelines to fill up once we start driving and flying around more, and the demand for gasoline starts to rise? This was surprising to me when I heard last week from an industry expert.

Just like we don’t want to be stuck in our driveway with an empty tank when everyone else is starting their Summer, we don’t want to be stuck in comfort/survival mode when others are prepared for the next level of normal. 

For some, the last 8 weeks has been absolutely devastating and for others it’s been an almost welcome disruption to a pace of life that was not sustainable. Maybe it’s been somewhere in between. Safe to say for most, it’s been challenging in one way or another, and I honor YOU for doing your best.

There is still a lot of uncertainty, but here’s WHAT WE DO...

Need an A.M. Routine Refresh?

Have you been waking up recently feeling anxious, even if you are not typically an anxious person?

Or maybe you are a bit anxious and it’s been worse lately? 

I’ve hosted multiple live webinars and training’s this month, and this is a recurring theme among women like you (and their amazing male allies too!).

Interesting times often require a morning routine refresh, so we can start our day feeling in-control and calm. Have a look at my worksheet, Rule Your Morning, Rule Your Day, so you can do just that. It’s in a format that is appropriate to share with the crew too (kids or colleagues). 

In the worksheet you will learn to gain clarity on a morning routine that makes sense for you. PLEASE use the suggestions as a guideline and fill in with whichever things serve you and in whichever amount you can commit to.

I cannot stress this enough...

CONSISTENCY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN DURATION OR DOING A LOT OF THINGS.

How to Get Started with Meditation

Absolutely thrilled to share my interview with fellow certified high performance coach Kerry Smith of The Awakening Trainings.

Kerry and her husband Colin believe everyone deserves to be happy and it is everyone's birthright to live a life that cultivates inner happiness, one that comes from within and could never be fulfilled with outward desires.

Take the New Mindset Mastery Assessment

Take the New Mindset Mastery Assessment

If you’re feeling a little (or a lot:) overwhelmed or out of control, I hear you! You are most definitely not alone. That gets compounded when we are absorbing and managing how other family members and team members are doing. 

In my household, I have one son who is in Nevada with his girlfriend and her family (I’m in California), and my younger son is on the tennis team and a senior at UC Berkeley. The tennis season was cancelled, all of his friends went home and there will be no formal graduation ceremony (except at home!). My daughter (age 20), is supposed to be in Honolulu right now with her best friend for Spring Break. As you can imagine, she’s not too thrilled to be at home with me! Despite it all, everyone seems to be taking everything in stride (most of the time:). 

Let’s take a moment for YOU and check in to see how you’re doing!

How you feel and how you are managing your thoughts and...
