Whether it’s in the highest court in the land, the corporate boardroom, or any other room, most of us have experienced bullying, implicit or explicit, at some time in our career. With the current political climate, it’s not a stretch to say that it is likely to get worse before it gets better.
This hit to company culture is expensive because it causes physical and emotional collateral (difficulty sleeping, higher stress, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and depression which translates into more sick time, increased healthcare and lower productivity) which in turn makes bullying financially costly as well, says Holly Wintermute of the Fisher Phillips law firm.
A study by the online employment service, Monster, found that about 90% of workers have been bullied at their place of employment. As if this isn’t bad enough, imagine if you are someone who is marginalized or double marginalized.

If days, weeks and even months feel blurred, and overwhelm is a constant companion, you are most certainly not alone. Groundhog Day is an uncomfortable and unsustainable (yet common!) place to be, and it’s not where creativity, productivity, innovative ability or joy live.
Here are a couple things you can do RIGHT NOW to help go from feeling like you're "spinning", depleted and not in control... to feeling grounded, calm, and on purpose.
Watch My Video with the Tools to Put Groundhog Day to Rest.
It’s the perfect time to take a little control back. With all that has transpired over the past few months, including the loss of one of the most courageous female leaders and champions of equality, it’s never been a better time to make a 1-degree shift that could create big change for ourselves and for others.
You see, most of those who have accomplished great feats in history have done so in...
Often times growth, progress and change require risk.
When an Olympic hopeful in equestrian show-jumping decides to play all out, she may decide to cut inside a jump to shave off precious time from the clock rather than choose a safer route to allow more time to get her horse balanced and straight.
If she plays all out, she takes a big risk.
Her horse may not be as able to clear the fence therefore taking down a rail and incur 4 or more faults. This would likely knock her out of qualifying for the Olympic team.
Growing and progressing in her sport will require her to take these types of risks.
The reward? Clearing the jump and proving that her sex, age and experience are good enough to contribute to the Olympic team, therefore creating a ripple effect, inspiring other young riders to work hard and take strategic chances as well.
Being a courageous ally requires risk as well.
I had the honor of interviewing angel investor, marketing strategist, Founder, House of Thor and a champion of women and girls, Kim Emerson. Kim was inspired at a young age by her grandfather who pushed her to do well in school. After graduating from Cornell as one of 20 women in a class of 200 in the Electrical Engineering Department, Kim soon became an international influencer in the tech industry. She is also a firm supporter of the Everyone Matters Ministries (www.everyonemattersministries.com) and Girls in Tech (www.girlsintech.org).

First and foremost, how are you doing? We are a community of world-class doers and change agents, but we are also human. Send me an email (I respond to all my emails myself:). Drop me a line, and let me know or just write it down in a journal. If nothing else, it will be a cathartic check-in with yourself. Be honest. No judgement. From here, we can move forward, together.
Let’s talk about YOUR voice for a moment. It matters, A LOT. Whether you consider yourself a world-class performer or not, YOU ARE. Whether you are feeling on your A-Game right now or feeling defeated, depleted and down, I’d like you to think about who needs you to step up right now. If you are able, let's dig deep for him, her, or them. If you are not able right now, know that we care about you, A LOT and we are cheering you on.
Our cumulative voices add up to a movement that can change the world! Isn’t it time to...
Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
