Isn't It Time for Real Change? Let's Do This!

The world seems to be in a precarious place, and I believe wholeheartedly that the course correction that we need to see right now will be led by women (and fueled by some incredible allies). Do you agree?

As part of the Limitless Leader community, you’re undoubtedly committed to being a heard, valued, respected, and energized agent of change, with your family, peers, subordinates, and with your leadership while empowering others to do the same.

In addition to being lit up by what’s possible, sometimes leaning into our highest sense of contribution, can sometimes be challenging, frustrating, and downright exhausting!

Believe me, I hear you 100%.

Where our passion meets our expertise is our Olympics, our legacy, and what the world so desperately needs to see right now.

Like the work put in by Olympians, the thousands of hours and days leading up to competition, sometimes in solitude, and with no fanfare or recognition, we keep...

Need Clarity for What's Next? Start Here...

If you feel a bit like you’re spinning, not in control of your days, your voice is not being heard, or you’re just not feeling the joy you want and deserve, you’re not alone. The great news is that there is half the year left to course correct!

Your voice, contribution, and leadership matter, a lot. For you to get the projects, promotions, recognition, and respect you want and deserve, AND in a sustainable way, we’ll need to take a pause. Here is step #1 which includes a few questions to ponder for a mid-year course correction, so you can finish the year strong, and happy!

Warning! These may not be easy :)

Step #1: Take inventory

  • Am I in the right role, or do I need to make an exit plan?
  • Do I feel heard, valued, and respected?
  • What would an ideal workday look like for me?
  • What’s one big (or small:) ask to make this happen?
  • What’s a micro-step I can take to make this happen?

You are a gift!

Building Belonging in a Remote World

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Rachel Hutchisson (Vice President of Global Social Responsibility at Blackbaud), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • Realize where you are in your journey; today doesn't mean that it's the direct route (of your life).
  • In life, all that matters is the next step. Just take that next step and your journey will unfold.
  • Sometimes the worries you spend the energy worrying about are the things that maybe you shouldn't be. 
  • What makes the world so wonderful is that we're all different. We have different skills and different views. The lived experience is deeply important.
  • Worry less but also to take more risks.
  • Don't ever stop learning. Have confidence that you can figure something out. Go to the people around you to help figure something out if you don't have that specific knowledge. And those two things work together.

  • Always self-reflect. “If I don’t want to do what I’m doing. What is it ‘I do want to do?’ And how am I going to define my own success doing that?”

4 Things to Avoid When Asking for What You're Worth

 

4 Things to Avoid When Asking for What You're Worth

Have you ever felt like (or had the facts) another colleague is being paid more for an equal or lesser role?

The good news is that you’re not alone. The bad news is that it can be very unfair, disrespectful, demotivating, and bad for business.

You may be thinking that this shouldn’t even be an issue, and that there should not be a discrepancy. Agreed 100%.

But, until pay transparency is more regulated and more systems are in place to manage this very real problem,  it may be time to speak up! If you already have, a few new tools could make all the difference for round 2.

Yes, it’s going to take time to get further down this road on pay equality, so it may be helpful to get comfortable (or I should say, confident and influential) about asking for what you are worth.

There is progress being made however for pay transparency and fairness, partially in thanks to pay transparency advocate and former Corporate VP,...
