The First Step to Unlocking Your Limitless Leadership

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Gina Tesla (Vice President, Sustainability and Social Impact, Coupa Software ), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • It is through times of loss or struggle, where you grow the most
  • Visualize yourself doing really well... visualize what’s going to happen.... visualize at the end how happy you feel or how proud others might feel of you, or how you feel like you really did a good job
  • Anything that you can do to take a little thing off of somebody’s plate is very beneficial
  • Take the time for yourself, take a breath, get your body in more of a receptive state, and say to yourself, "I can really see myself in this role, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s presenting in a meeting" ... the first part is to really give yourself that permission to pause and visualize it
  • If you’re not comfortable talking to someone, write it in a journal
  • You really need to speak up for yourself, and that takes a lot of courage
  • Be honest with yourself about what your purpose is,  and believe in it
  • If you are doing something that you’re truly passionate about, and you’re living your purpose, the financial aspects of it will come along
