Take the New Mindset Mastery Assessment

Take the New Mindset Mastery Assessment

If you’re feeling a little (or a lot:) overwhelmed or out of control, I hear you! You are most definitely not alone. That gets compounded when we are absorbing and managing how other family members and team members are doing. 

In my household, I have one son who is in Nevada with his girlfriend and her family (I’m in California), and my younger son is on the tennis team and a senior at UC Berkeley. The tennis season was cancelled, all of his friends went home and there will be no formal graduation ceremony (except at home!). My daughter (age 20), is supposed to be in Honolulu right now with her best friend for Spring Break. As you can imagine, she’s not too thrilled to be at home with me! Despite it all, everyone seems to be taking everything in stride (most of the time:). 

Let’s take a moment for YOU and check in to see how you’re doing!

How you feel and how you are managing your thoughts and...

To revolutionize the way we live, work, play and do business. She's the founder and CEO of Move The Crowd, an entrepreneurial training company dedicated to creative and cultural entrepreneurs working at the intersection of values, profitability and social impact.

Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. Commitment to family, to community and to education
  2. If we ever had any opportunity, any advantage, any asset, that we had a responsibility to make a way for other people, we had a responsibility to open a door
  3. We have a long legacy of denial of access and opportunity and that, that denial and access has been systemic. we can either adopt the norms of that culture and environment or we can choose to offer and create something different.
  4. Give myself permission to show up fully in...

Podcast Episode #42 - "Power of Community for Women to Advance in the Workplace" - An Interview with Kristy Wallace

community workplace Mar 12, 2020

Power of Community for Women to Advance in the Workplace

Kristy Wallace is the CEO of Ellevate Network, one of the world's largest communities of professional women. In this interview, Kristy and Sheryl talk about how Ellevate enables women to be active participants in the workplace and beyond... not just in our own success but in the success of others.

Here Are a Couple of the Main Take-Aways:

  1. Gender equality does not fall into two buckets. Equal access to opportunity within our 'women' bucket has a long way to go. Depending on your race and identity, some likely face barriers that others do not. 
  2. Be an active participant in others success, daily. This can be as simple as giving someone a shout out online, making a phone call, diversifying your meeting or even just acknowledging someone.
  3. Be proactive about asking 'How can I help?' We can take this a step further and offer up some specific help. For example, 'You have a big presentation coming up. Would it...

The Impact of Digital Storytelling in Tech

Gail Mercer-MacKay is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Women in Technology Network. In this interview, Gail and Sheryl talk about her transformation from making “fear-based decisions” to next-leveling her life and making an impact.

Additionally, Gail launched a new planning/preparation software app in the Microsoft Cloud that empowers the 3,000+ Microsoft Partners to build amazing submissions (digital storytelling) to win a Microsoft Partner of the Year Award.

Wisdom Gained and Lessons Learned in January

Wisdom Gained and Lessons Learned in January

Sometimes trying to evolve into the best version of ourselves means we have to get downright uncomfortable... sometimes emerging victorious and sometimes not.

I’ve got some great nuggets of wisdom to share from an incredible January 2020, as well as a colossal failure that I hope we can all be inspired by and learn from! 

January 14-20, 2020:

I headed to San Diego to drop off my daughter Megan at Kerry and Colin Smith's Journey Retreat. Megan is 20 years old, a total rockstar student and all around human being who happens to struggle with severe anxiety at times. Kerry is a colleague of mine, and my husband and I have been through her program. It’s intense, and I worried a little (ok a lot) if the baby in the family could or would not want to handle it. Megan went, rocked it and is forever changed with new life changing tools to manage her anxiety, be happier and ready for her next chapter: transferring colleges...

The Impact of Full Presence (May Surprise You!)

The Impact of Full Presence (May Surprise You!)

On a scale of 1-10...

... how do you rate yourself on how present you are with those who matter the most?

Despite running hard at their dreams, high performers are remarkably present, especially with those who matter the most. Let’s not wait until tragedy strikes until we realize we should be more present... or worse yet, to lose the opportunity to be present and then have to live with that regret.

Here are a couple ways to take your presence to the next level, so you can make others feel seen, heard and cared for:

  1. Put down everything you are doing, and look into their eyes
  2. Be explicit and tell the person "I really want to hear you"
  3. Hug the person or say goodbye like you may never see them again. 

Full presence elicits emotions in others that helps them feel safe, heard and cared for. It will in turn help you to be congruent with who you are and how you’d like to be remembered. 

We are all busy chasing...
