Sharing an Attitude of Gratitude / Special Announcement

I hope the upcoming holiday will be a safe and joyous time for you and your loved ones. Just a reminder (I remind myself often too!), even in challenging times, we all have things to be grateful for, be they big or small. Focusing on our gratitude helps keep our stress levels lower and makes our celebrations even more special!

Grateful for YOU!
I’d like to express how deeply grateful I am for YOU and my Limitless Leader community! You have something SO special and unique placed within you, and it’s a real honor to provide content, tools, and resources to help you access what is already there!

It’s my sincere hope you will rest well over the holidays, so your reverence, hope and action for 2022 will be epic.

“One person can change the world.”
- Rosa Parks

Your voice is needed now more than ever, and I truly believe that one person CAN change the world. Can you imagine what we can do collectively?!

Want to Rise More in 2022?

Want to Rise More in 2022?

If you know you’re doing a great job, but you feel like you’re getting overlooked, excluded or not on leadership’s radar enough, it could be the perfect time to get a plan in place to dial up your visibility and rise more. While there may be many things that are not controllable, there is one thing that is 100% under your control, and that’s the impact that YOU decide you want to have. Likely having greater impact means getting leadership on the bus with your ideas and seeing you as a confidant and trusted advisor. Let’s make sure you have a visibility plan in place now, so you can have as impactful a year as possible.

Here are a few questions that will help you take the first step, gaining personal clarity, to rise more in 2022. Deciding on the answers to these questions and taking action on them is a way of accepting where you’re being called for your highest sense of leadership. They will also help lay the foundation...

No Tricks, Just a Treat!

"3 Strategies for Women to Take Control of Their Visibility and Impact"

Have you ever had the courage to speak up in a crucial conversation or to your leadership and then felt like someone pooped in your cereal? (I know that’s gross, but I cannot take credit! A recent C-level client said it yesterday:).

If so, I am EXTREMELY excited to share this with YOU! On November 5, I’ll be hosting a global live masterclass for VMware’s 6000 member Women in Leadership group, and I wanted to give my Limitless Leader family access to these important tools!

So, here’s the treat...:ghost:

A sneak peek of the outline...

Why?

Because it’s YOUR time to speak up, be heard, and share your unique area of genius even more.

While we have come a long way in terms of equality for women in the workplace, we are not there yet and likely will not be in our lifetime.

According to the recent (September 27, 2021) McKinsey report, 1 in 3 women are considering leaving the workplace.

Feeling Firehosed?

Feeling Firehosed?

Feeling like you’re drinking from a firehose? You’re not alone!

If you’d like me to talk you off the ledge:), let's chat privately ASAP.

Keep in mind...

Now that we are deep into Q4, what I’m hearing (now more than ever) is that individuals and teams are feeling overwhelmed, depleted, and losing motivation.

Your or your team’s highest sense of impact and contribution DO NOT live here, and it’s virtually an impossible pace to sustain.

This, of course, has a huge ripple down effect on productivity, profitability as well as talent retention... not to mention on the overall sense of well-being and impact on the family. As you can imagine, this is costly. Upwards of $500 billion dollars of lost revenue a year according to a recent Gallup study.

If you are an ambitious heart-centered leader, we lose even more. We lose your ability to access your highest sense of contribution, your ability to influence up and have the biggest voice...

Take Me Off the Ledge or I Quit!

Take Me Off the Ledge or I Quit

"Talk me off the ledge, or I quit!”

Have you been feeling that way, or is it possible your team is?

Maybe it's the back-to-back-to-back-to-back meetings with little time to do your work (nonetheless time to strategize for the future.) Let’s not even talk about your "me" time to take care of yourself and nourish your soul…

The great resignation is a thing, and let’s make sure you and your team are not part of it.

Unfortunately, it’s not where your (or your team's) greatest creativity, innovative ability, or profitability exist. If you are grinding it out, do you want to keep working this way, and how will it affect your ability to have your greatest impact?

The great news is that there are ways to take some control back and create more time for what matters!

Here’s a great place to start which is taken from Greg McKeown’s book, Essentialism...

He mentions a "Zero-Based Budgeting Approach." It’s similar to when...

Taking Swift Action to Elicit Real Change

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Denise Reed Lamoreaux (Chief Diversity Officer at ATOS), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • Remove those tentative statements by omitting words of doubt such as “I think”, rather say “this is the solution”
  • Be specific in your word choice by saying, “Friday is the deadline”, rather than, “I need it ASAP”
  • Provide people with resources after a meeting to go back to, this helps with retaining information
  • Ask people who don’t think like you to give you feedback, you need this to make improvements
  • If you want to be known as a role model, you have to be bold, take that next step in action
  • Communicate with power. Every time you remain silent, that means that this situation could happen again.

3 Ways to Speak Up When You Know You Should

Ways to Speak Up When You Know You Should

I think it’s safe to say that most of us have found ourselves in this predicament. Clamming up when we know we should speak up. Maybe it’s an awkward situation. Maybe there is a lot at stake. Maybe it’s just easier not to say anything. Whether it’s in our living room or in the boardroom, your voice needs to be heard. Change for the better will require us all to speak up when our gut and our heart tell us to do so.

Easier said than done, right?

Yep, and we’re not alone.

A recent survey done by LeanIn and SurveyMonkey polled approximately 7,400 women and men in the workplace. While 80% of those polled considered themselves allies, less than half of the women (most notably women of color) say they have strong allies in the workplace.

Also, consider that it can be extremely difficult to ‘influence up’. In other words, share your perspective with senior leadership especially when there is a...

Lacking Control of Your Schedule and Productivity?

Lacking Control of Your Schedule and Productivity?

Have you ever had a day where you had so many meetings that there was no time to strategize or do YOUR work (not to mention fit in a morning routine)? If you feel like you’re lacking control of your schedule and productivity, that can be frustrating and exhausting. If this sounds familiar, I hear this about 10 times a week in private and confidential sessions, in group trainings and in chat rolls that are lit up with these types of comments, so you’re most definitely not alone!

We need to pause that right now. 

Why?

According to Passport Health, a corporate wellness company, if this is not addressed, there can be physical and psychological health consequences as well as serious and deleterious effects on profitability. The ripple effect of this can be staggering for a region or an entire company.

When it comes to YOU, you’re needed now more than ever. Your expertise, your passion and compassion, your...

Are You Feeling a Little Out of Control? Try This...

Are you controlling your day, or is your day controlling you?

World-class performers have one essential habit to get through busy and challenging days... even those days when the sh%@t hits the fan and all hell seems to break loose. Developing clear boundaries will help you take control of your days, so you can make consistent and measurable progress.

Think about it…

  • What do you NEED to be your best self throughout the day?
  • What MUST you accomplish?
  • HOW do you protect the time to make it happen?

Here are 3 tips:

  1. Plan out what boundaries you need to set in order to make your day a success
  2. Commit and don’t feel bad about it
