Unlocking Your Limitless Leadership: Knowing When It's Time to Go Big

 

Today, I want to share an exciting update with you that speaks to the power of taking risks and knowing when the time is right to go bigger.

As you may know, I have been offering the Limitless Leader Launchpad Digital Course, a step-by-step coaching system designed specifically for ambitious, heart-centered female leaders, emerging leaders, and male allies. It has been an incredible journey witnessing the transformation and growth of those who have embraced this course.

But recently, an opportunity knocked on my door that made my heart skip a beat. I was approached by Rali, an exciting and innovative platform that specializes in connecting teams, fostering community-based learning, and driving engagement to facilitate effective organizational change for critical initiatives. Their belief in the science of change, behavior-centered design, and the power of people truly resonated with me.

Empowering Leaders and Changing the World

It was an absolute honor to be part of the Ideagen Global Acceleration Summit, where I had the privilege of engaging in a captivating interview with George Sifakis, the CEO of Ideagen.

In this transformative conversation, we delved into the depths of what drives me, the purpose behind my work, and the profound impact it can have on individuals and the world at large.

Here are a few key takeaways from our conversation:

  • Choosing to Lead: It's essential to recognize that leadership is a choice we make for ourselves. Whether we're world-class athletes or aspiring executives, the power to determine our worth and success lies within us. By embracing the mindset of self-determination, we can tap into our potential and achieve remarkable outcomes.

Are You Speaking Up For Yourself Enough?

 

My daughter Megan recently graduated from the University of San Diego. Being the youngest in the family with two brothers who were Division 1 athletes, and who made it through college seemingly easily and now successfully into the ‘real world’, there have been some big shoes to fill (at least in her mind:). 

I’ve told her over the years that her traits of resilience, determination, hard work, and love for others cannot easily be taught, and those are the traits of some of the most successful people in the world.

I shared with her that greatness is often born from struggle. It’s as if G-d, the universe, or whatever higher power you believe in, wants to give us a big shove, see us fall on our face (maybe a few times), and see how we handle getting up, dusting off, and moving forward to see if we can handle what’s in store for us.

If we learn, grow, and persevere, that seems to be when the magic happens. The next step toward what we are truly capable...

Need Leadership's Buy-in? Take Control with These 4 Strategies

Have you ever had that brief yet vitally important window of time to speak with your leadership or board only to let your emotions get the best of you and feel disappointed at the outcome?

Whether negotiating an offer for a new title, a monetary raise, promotion, or buy-in on an idea, it’s vital to prepare your mindset AND that of your counterpart.

Here are a few tips to make sure you feel in control of your next crucial conversation:

  1. Have an ECO Mindset prior to entering into any high-stakes conversation. (Have "E"mpathy for the other, "C"uriosity for what he/she might feel/be experiencing, and "O"ptimism for how you’d like the conversation to turn out). If you’re not feeling the love, postpone the conversation. Anger and frustration, while 100% understandable, will likely come out in your tone/gesture which will not be helpful to your cause.
  2. Begin with acknowledging the other’s perspective. Be...

The Cost of Worry and Uncertainty and (what you can do about it)

New leadership is often one of the biggest drivers of worry and uncertainty, both for the employees and the new leader themselves. This is because new leadership typically brings about changes and a shift in organizational culture, which can understandably lead to anxiety and stress for those involved.

While extremely normal, it’s not so great for innovative ability, productivity, or profitability, especially during disruptive or challenging times.

For employees, a new leader may bring uncertainty about their job security or the direction of the organization. They may worry about whether the new leader will have the same values and priorities as the previous leader, or whether they will be able to work effectively with the new leader.

Similarly, for the new leader, taking on a new role can be overwhelming and stressful. They may worry about whether they will be able to live up to the expectations of the organization, the board, and the employees, or whether they will be able...

Want More Influence with Your Leadership and/or Board?

 

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to negotiate when lives are on the line, in deadly hostage stand-offs, with ISIS, or with an armed man with sniper weapons on the National Mall in Washington DC? Sounds terrifying, highly emotional, and exhausting, right?

Grant it that negotiations with your leadership and/or board may not be life or death, but they can be no less exhausting or frustrating when you’re not heard, valued, and respected for your ideas and initiatives.

I’ll be joining FBI and NYPD International Hostage Negotiator Chris Voss again (the first training was in October 2022 in NYC), so I can help you stand in your power even more for yourself, your company, and those leaders coming after you.

As we know all too well when women are not heard or don’t have a big enough voice at the table, it’s costly.

Consider that productivity has taken its biggest dip since 1947, and it’s costing U.S. companies north of 600 billion dollars a year,...
