Nail Your Next Crucial Conversation: Do This First!

Nail Your Next Crucial Conversation: Do This First!

Have you ever had an important conversation or interaction, and left the room (or Zoom:) feeling like you didn’t have the impact you’d hoped for? Maybe you flat out bombed the opportunity (I think most of us have experienced that at some point!) If so, you’re definitely not alone, but let’s make sure it never happens again! Your voice matters, and you deserve and need to be heard.

The entire process is outlined in my
Limitless Leader course, but here’s a great place to start, with preparing your mindset. Permission to be transparent? If you don’t believe in what you have to say or you are unclear of the outcome you desire, then it will be difficult at best to influence others. 

While the 7/38/55 rule of communication states that only 7% of our communication is perceived by our words, 38% by our tone, and 58% by our gestures (1967, Albert Mehrabian and his colleagues at UCLA), is debatable, one...

Time to Communicate Your IMPACT More Boldly?

Time to Communicate Your IMPACT More Boldly?

Sue (not her real name:) is a senior executive who is responsible for cultivating and maintaining relationships that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars. She had an extraordinary year, growing this number significantly even during the extreme disruption that 2020 brought. What was shocking was her response to me acknowledging her unprecedented success…‘It’s not that big of a deal.’

What? It was a HUGE deal, for her, for her team, and for her company. She didn’t want to brag or take too much credit. Of course, this is understandable. How we were raised, our culture, or experiences up to this point, can have a lot to do with how (or if) we speak up, especially when it comes to communicating our impact. 

Here are two key reasons why it may be time for you to communicate your impact more boldly. 

1.) You May Limit Yourself

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. 

Why?

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.
