Bully in the Boardroom?

Bully in the Boardroom?

Whether it’s in the highest court in the land, the corporate boardroom, or any other room, most of us have experienced bullying, implicit or explicit, at some time in our career. With the current political climate, it’s not a stretch to say that it is likely to get worse before it gets better.

This hit to company culture is expensive because it causes physical and emotional collateral (difficulty sleeping, higher stress, anxiety, insomnia, high blood pressure and depression which translates into more sick time, increased healthcare and lower productivity) which in turn makes bullying financially costly as well, says Holly Wintermute of the Fisher Phillips law firm.

A study by the online employment service, Monster, found that about 90% of workers have been bullied at their place of employment. As if this isn’t bad enough, imagine if you are someone who is marginalized or double marginalized.

Podcast Episode #57: "Women Helping Women: The Importance of Intentional Networking" - an Interview with Megan Bozzuto

Women Helping Women: The Importance of Intentional Networking

Whether you are currently in your dream job or looking for something new, you won't want to miss these strategies to help yourself, your colleagues and friends to make the meaningful progress in their career. Relationships are everything, especially when it comes to building trust, credibility, expertise and opportunities, so I was super excited to have this conversation with International Association of Women (IAW) Vice President of Marketing and Membership Experience, Megan Bozzuto.

Regardless if you are climbing in your current role or looking for something new, here are 4 key strategies from our interview to help you to be intentional when networking:

  1. Network with others who will believe in you and push you to get uncomfortable.

  3. Give before you receive.
  4. Build or sharpen the necessary skills along the way.

Want to Put Groundhog Day to Rest?

Want to Put Groundhog Day to Rest?

If days, weeks and even months feel blurred, and overwhelm is a constant companion, you are most certainly not alone. Groundhog Day is an uncomfortable and unsustainable (yet common!) place to be, and it’s not where creativity, productivity, innovative ability or joy live. 

Here are a couple things you can do RIGHT NOW to help go from feeling like you're "spinning", depleted and not in control... to feeling grounded, calm, and on purpose. 

Watch My Video with the Tools to Put Groundhog Day to Rest.



It’s the perfect time to take a little control back. With all that has transpired over the past few months, including the loss of one of the most courageous female leaders and champions of equality, it’s never been a better time to make a 1-degree shift that could create big change for ourselves and for others. 

You see, most of those who have accomplished great feats in history have done so in...

3 Steps to Courageous Allyship

3 Steps to Courageous Allyship

This article was originally posted on:

Often times growth, progress and change require risk. 

When an Olympic hopeful in equestrian show-jumping decides to play all out, she may decide to cut inside a jump to shave off precious time from the clock rather than choose a safer route to allow more time to get her horse balanced and straight. 

If she plays all out, she takes a big risk. 

Her horse may not be as able to clear the fence therefore taking down a rail and incur 4 or more faults. This would likely knock her out of qualifying for the Olympic team. 

Growing and progressing in her sport will require her to take these types of risks.

The reward? Clearing the jump and proving that her sex, age and experience are good enough to contribute to the Olympic team, therefore creating a ripple effect, inspiring other young riders to work hard and take strategic chances as well. 

Being a courageous ally requires risk as well.

Podcast Episode #52: "Empowering Women and Girls in Tech to Dream Big" - an Interview with Kim Emerson

Empowering Women and Girls in Tech to Dream Big

I had the honor of interviewing angel investor, marketing strategist, Founder, House of Thor and a champion of women and girls, Kim Emerson. Kim was inspired at a young age by her grandfather who pushed her to do well in school. After graduating from Cornell as one of 20 women in a class of 200 in the Electrical Engineering Department, Kim soon became an international influencer in the tech industry. She is also a firm supporter of the Everyone Matters Ministries (www.everyonemattersministries.com) and Girls in Tech (www.girlsintech.org).

Here are a couple of the main take-aways from our impactful conversation:

  • Have a growth mindset, so you can take criticism and learn
  • Don’t give up. Struggle is part of the process
  • By helping women in the workforce, you’re helping the potential of the company
  • Always share your gifts and help others
