Getting Overlooked for a New Title or Promotion?
As the world celebrates International Women’s Day today to honor women, their achievements, and their contributions, don’t you think that it’s time for swifter real change? While we’re up against hundreds of years of cultural indoctrinations, your voice matters now more than ever, and together we can shift cultures, companies, and course correct the world for the greater good. I’ve witnessed this transformation in individual female leaders, their teams, and in their entire companies... and it's powerful!
As part of this Limitless Leader community, you and I are on target to empower 10,000 female leaders and emerging leaders to be heard, valued, and respected more... and to empower women to get the projects, promotions, titles, raises, and respect they want and deserve.
But, there is still much work to be done…
I’d like to dispel one myth that may resonate with you as it has with so many others.
Have you ever felt like your work should speak for itself... and then get frustrated (ok, angry) that you didn’t get the title or the promotion?

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 if you are to get the visibility and recognition you deserve.
If we can ALL learn to speak up more about our accomplishments, areas of genius, and what we want and deserve, we’ll be better equipped to:
This issue can be solved with longer-form workshops and/or coaching. But I’ve received so many emails and messages, I’d like to get you started here.
Watch my video (above) with tips on how to speak up.
The world needs your voice now more than ever.
Women have a unique perspective. Women have a fierce sense of purpose and contribution.
Happy International Women’s Day 2022!

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.
