Podcast Episode #52: "Empowering Women and Girls in Tech to Dream Big" - an Interview with Kim Emerson

Empowering Women and Girls in Tech to Dream Big

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).

Here are a couple of the main take-aways from our impactful conversation:

  • Have a growth mindset, so you can take criticism and learn
  • Don’t give up. Struggle is part of the process
  • By helping women in the workforce, you’re helping the potential of the company
  • Always share your gifts and help others

YOUR Voice Matters (a Lot!)

bherd now movement voice Jul 01, 2020
 

YOUR Voice Matters (a Lot!)

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...

Building Thought Leadership for Positive Change

Have you ever felt like you are being called for more or a different level of impact?

Imagine if we, and those on our team, became influential thought leaders in our area of passion and expertise to affect even more positive change…

Whether you think you are an influencer or not, you are. People are watching. Colleagues, friends, family, even strangers. Let’s take a few moments to learn from one of the best thought leadership experts on the planet, Mel Abraham. He is also passionate about helping people get started in the thought leadership space.

A Note to Our Mental Toughness Community

A Note to Our Mental Toughness Community

It is my sincere hope that this finds you, your colleagues and family well and safe. The last two weeks have been unimaginable and horrific combined with hope. Hope that there are many allies standing in solidarity with #blacklivesmatter and hope that there is a new and better commitment to equality.

Emotions are running high and for good reason, but the march for equality must go forward, so must we if we are able. For some who have been affected personally, whose family or colleagues have been directly affected, it may not be possible now. If that is you, please accept my heartfelt prayers for healing and strength. I don’t understand completely nor will I ever, but I am committed to educating myself and my community, so we can be allies for change.

I have deep gratitude for this community of heart-centered and ambitious leaders. Your voice and vision is needed now more than ever, and I believe in our ability...

The Importance of Community and an Inclusive Culture

Want to transform your life experience into more impact and joy in the world? I had the honor of interviewing Ideagen Global VP, author of S.W.A.K., CEO of The Italian Place and mother of 3, Adriana Sifakis.

SO GOOD! Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. COVID-19 has been a time to slow down and put on our thinking cap in order to decide how to best change as we more forward
  2. Yes, you can create your destiny with some help and a lot of hard work
  3. Sitting on the floor and crying or wanting to give up (many times:) is normal. Get some help and push through the challenges

Strategic Communications for Women in Business

I am so excited and honored to have interviewed Nathalie Gauthier. She is an Assistant Vice President, Global Markets Technology-Proj Mgmt Office for State Street, a leading financial services firm out of Boston. Nathalie shares her tools and tips in strategic communications.

SO GOOD! Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. Take ownership... ask what is my place in this and how can I improve?
  2. Practice in a 'warm' environment... prior to a high stakes conversation, practice with family or peers.
  3. 'Warm' the room... reach out to those you will communicate with prior to meeting and run your ideas by them, allow them to 'poke holes' and also understand their perspective.
  4. Be bold and brief... ask #WWWD/S (what would a white man do/say)

Secrets to Avoid Getting Stuck (Get Ready to Make a Shift!)

Secrets to Avoid Getting Stuck (Get Ready to Make a Shift!)

I hope you, your loved ones and colleagues are all staying healthy!

Did you know that it will take 2-4 weeks for pipelines to fill up once we start driving and flying around more, and the demand for gasoline starts to rise? This was surprising to me when I heard last week from an industry expert.

Just like we don’t want to be stuck in our driveway with an empty tank when everyone else is starting their Summer, we don’t want to be stuck in comfort/survival mode when others are prepared for the next level of normal. 

For some, the last 8 weeks has been absolutely devastating and for others it’s been an almost welcome disruption to a pace of life that was not sustainable. Maybe it’s been somewhere in between. Safe to say for most, it’s been challenging in one way or another, and I honor YOU for doing your best.

There is still a lot of uncertainty, but here’s WHAT WE DO...

Need an A.M. Routine Refresh?

Have you been waking up recently feeling anxious, even if you are not typically an anxious person?

Or maybe you are a bit anxious and it’s been worse lately? 

I’ve hosted multiple live webinars and training’s this month, and this is a recurring theme among women like you (and their amazing male allies too!).

Interesting times often require a morning routine refresh, so we can start our day feeling in-control and calm. Have a look at my worksheet, Rule Your Morning, Rule Your Day, so you can do just that. It’s in a format that is appropriate to share with the crew too (kids or colleagues). 

In the worksheet you will learn to gain clarity on a morning routine that makes sense for you. PLEASE use the suggestions as a guideline and fill in with whichever things serve you and in whichever amount you can commit to.

I cannot stress this enough...

CONSISTENCY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN DURATION OR DOING A LOT OF THINGS.

How to Get Started with Meditation

Absolutely thrilled to share my interview with fellow certified high performance coach Kerry Smith of The Awakening Trainings.

Kerry and her husband Colin believe everyone deserves to be happy and it is everyone's birthright to live a life that cultivates inner happiness, one that comes from within and could never be fulfilled with outward desires. It is only filled with inward clarity, stillness and passion for growth, ignited by one’s own inner wisdom. They have Instilled the importance of inner peace and wisdom in the reality of their daily lives and has devoted a deep meditation practice twice a day as part of their very rigorous spiritual routine for the last 26 years. In 2018, Kerry and Colin were hand-picked to carry on the torch of transformation that it brings and they took it with the deep honor, reverence and dedication to help others find their personal spark and they have incorporated their expertise in the different healing...
