Developing Talent During Disruptive Times

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the phenomenal Lolita Amica (Director of Talent, Tubi), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • Ask not just about business but get to know people, be very intentional and purposeful.
  • Finding out what people really enjoy about the work, what they’ve done and where it is that they’d like to go.
  • It’s important to invest in your people, but also monitoring and knowing how they’re doing.
  • Is the lack of success of employees relative to them in the company? Are there different opportunities in your organization that’s more fitting? 
  • When performance has dropped off in employees use ECO mindset: empathy, curiosity and optimism.

Time to DE-CIDE on Your Next Best Move?

Time to DE-CIDE on Your Next Best Move?

It’s Spring (finally!), and it’s possible that it’s time for a new beginning, a shift. Maybe it’s a shift in your morning routine, how much you commit to speaking up, the intent that you go after a raise, promotion or the recognition that you’re yearning for. Maybe it’s a big shift in terms of how you lead, where you lead or in what capacity. 

Is it time to DE-CIDE?

Phonetically speaking, "de" means "of" and "cide" means, well "death." When you DE-CIDE, it’s the death of any other option. 

Oftentimes gaining pure clarity is the hardest part. 


Simply put, we have a lot of baggage, past experiences, past influences and stories we tell ourselves which gets in the way of our next best move. 

The good news is that there is a process to get clear, so we can shift, take action and get back on track to the best version of us as well as feel the joy that comes along with it.

Is It Your Time?

I have no doubt you are an amazing heart-centered leader who has already had an impact.

But maybe right now when you’re trying to access that next level of impact... you’re not feeling heard, or recognized or valued as much as you’d like.

And maybe you feel like you’re burning out a little bit in the process.

You are needed now more than ever, so we don’t want that!

That’s why I’ve created a (FREE) 30-minute video for you (or your team) on “How to Manage Overwhelm.”

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Amy Bunszel (Executive Vice President of Architecture, Engineering & Design Solutions, Autodesk), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared

  • Inclusive and diverse cultures are more likely to be agile and innovative. These cultures have less turnover, thanks to increased morale, opportunity and equity.

  • It’s imperative that we ensure the right amount of flexibility so that people who want to spend more time in...

Want More Recognition?

Want More Recognition?

Has anyone ever given you a compliment that you’ve downplayed or shrugged off as being insignificant or ‘not a big deal’? Maybe you’ve achieved a new level of success or had a big win and then just moved on to the next thing without taking in the magnitude of what YOU did. 

Permission for a healthy dose of tough love…

If you want more recognition from others, it’s important to start recognizing yourself more. This serves two purposes. First, progress boosts confidence, momentum and motivation. In order to capitalize on this, it’s important to pause and party! Be sure to celebrate the process and not just the ‘W’s’. For example, you made 3 phone calls to key stakeholders or if you practiced relentlessly for an upcoming presentation. Of course, if you got that raise, promotion or kudos, schedule in a way to celebrate that as well! Don’t forget to plan that ‘pause and party’!

Paving the Way for Next Gen Female Leaders

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the fabulous Laura Guio (General Manager, Global Cisco and Apple Alliance and California Senior State Exec, IBM), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • You need to have this little voice inside of you asking: What do you stand for? What do you want to do? How do you want to operate? Then you're able to distinguish and make decisions based on that.
  • Women and the underrepresented minorities when you are trying to go after something, ask, you could be told no, but try again. Sometimes it takes multiple tries.
  • Take the combination of selling what you do know and being enthusiastic and energetic about what you want to learn.
  • You need to have some small aspect of what you know about a job. And then there will be some aspect of the job you don't know. You just need to want to know more and highlight that people.
  • It’s important to be self aware. Highlight what you like and what you're...
