Podcast Episode #72: "Creating and Empowering a Diverse Workforce" - an Interview with Sonia Wadhwa

Creating and Empowering a Diverse Workforce

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the talented and insightful Sonia Wadhwa (Chief of Staff and Director of Business Operations, Microsoft), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • We must surround ourselves with others who will constantly remind us of our potential, especially during low phases of our journey.
  • This is especially true for those who sit on the margins.
  • Mentoring is one of the most important things a professional needs especially those who are on the margins and the quieter colleagues.
  • This is how a diverse workforce will thrive.
  • Anyone can be a mentor as long as he/she is one step ahead of the mentee, not just for senior leaders.
  • Be intentional and proactive about seeking out diverse individuals who'd benefit from your mentorship.
  • There is a great power in taking a pause, especially when emotions are running high (agreed 100%!)

NO Person Has the Right to Rain on Your Dreams ❤️🏅

NO Person Has the Right to Rain on Your Dreams

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, not sleeping well, dropping off your routine or your productivity is tanking... the good news is that you’re normal.

The not so good news is that you’re allowing your light to be dimmed. (Woo woo translation: your purpose-driven goodness that you are able to put into our family, your company and into the world is slowing down, and in some cases stopping all together.)

No bueno for you, your job security or those whom you influence.

You matter. A lot. Let’s make sure you understand how to manage your internal world, so you can keep contributing purposefully towards your dreams and feel joy along the way.

Whether it’s a person, pandemic, political climate/unrest/circus, intense period of social injustice, YOUR light must continue to shine. YOU must continue to make progress. YOU must influence and lead others to contribute at their...

How to Get Clear on What Really Matters

How to Get Clear on What Really Matters

Happy New Year 2021 Limitless Leader family!

Yep, this community has a new name with some new content, curriculum and commitments. Here’s wishing you beautiful moments, treasured memories, and all the blessings a heart can know as we emerge from a most unprecedented year. This will be a year of saying “yes” to speaking up, being heard, and being courageous for the things that matter most to YOU.

First, consider... Do you ever get distracted and veer from what’s most important?

Maybe you’re so busy that you don’t have time to focus on what really matters to have massive impact this year? 

We all do, but there are a couple things that sets the best apart from the rest.

Maybe it’s time for a “course correction”... so you can fully lean into this year with purpose-driven clarity, confidence and influence.

This is important now more than ever, don’t you think? 

World-class...

Here's to YOU Being Limitless in 2021!

Here's to YOU Being Limitless in 2021!

I never stop being impressed with this community. Despite a most unusual and challenging year, goodness, impact and momentum have prevailed. It is with sadness for all those who have suffered and also with gratitude for the purpose driven course-correction that has been demanded of all of us this year.

What will 2021 bring? YOU decide, and let’s make it happen.

What impact do you want to have?

How do you want to spend your days?

Whose lives do you want to touch?

What recognition would you like to receive?

How do you want to feel about your contribution, your energy, your freedom, your passion projects, your career, and your legacy?

You should know by now that I believe wholeheartedly, and I work with the scientists who have proven my quote to be true (namely Dr. Anders Ericsson, author of Peak)… 

“You are only limited by what you think is possible.”

Here’s to reaching new heights and a happy and healthy...

You Are a Gift (My Surrender Practice)

You Are a Gift (My Surrender Practice)

First, thank you for becoming a new subscriber or for being a subscriber to our community for many years. Your willingness to continue to learn and grow makes you world-class. I mean it wholeheartedly when I say, you are a gift. A gift to your family, your colleagues, clients and ultimately to the world.

Our community motto for 2021 is Hone It and Own It because you deserve to shine your light as bright as ever in 2021, and you must. There is something that will inevitably get in the way though, so let’s deal with it now, so we can be unencumbered by it in 2021… This invisible barrier is called ‘preference’.

Preference is a funny (and troublesome) thing. When we prefer that something entirely out of our control is a certain way and it isn’t, more often than not it creates anxiety, frustration and sometimes even anger. These snowballs that we build into avalanches with our mind tend to...

Time to Draw Your Own Map?

Time to Draw Your Own Map?

You have a brilliance in you, your contribution is valuable, and the art you create is precious. Only you can do it, and you must. I’m hoping you’ll stand up and choose to make a difference."
- Seth Godin, Linchpin

In his book Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?, Godin talks about when he was a kid and his love of the comic book series, The Justice League of America. He explained that, with the exception of Batman and Superman, the other members needed to explain their superpowers in the beginning of each story when a stranger was introduced. 

Godin goes on to say that "...the best future available to us is a future where you contribute as your true self and your best work."

So, maybe it’s your time.

Your time to draw your own map. A map that may still include fear and doubt, but one that knows how to use those emotions as superpowers and not kryptonite.

Some of us have been trained to be safe. Not to take...
