Time to DE-CIDE On Your Next Best Move?

Now that we are on the backside of 2022, it’s possible that it’s time for a new beginning, a shift, so we can finish the year as strong as possible. Maybe it’s a shift in your morning routine, how much you commit to speaking up, or a big shift in terms of how you lead, where you lead or in what capacity.

Is it time to DE-CIDE?

Phonetically speaking, “de” means “of” and “cide” means, well “death.” When you DE-CIDE, it’s the ‘death of’ any other option. Deciding is a commitment to move forward, even if you are not ready or are scared. If you gut and your heart says it’s a go, then let’s get it!

Oftentimes gaining pure clarity is the hardest part.

Why?

Simply put, we have a lot of baggage, past experiences, past influences, and stories we tell ourselves which gets in the way of us taking action.

The good news is that there is a process to get clear, so we...

Using Change to Your Advantage

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the remarkable Nathalie Gauthier (Vice President, Talent Marketplace and DE&I Advocate at State Street), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • One of the key points in using change to your advantage is having the willingness to accept it and learn from it.

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!

A leader who's...

Big News!
FREE Limitless Leader Community Lunch and Learn / Q&A on 1.27.22

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 altogether.)

Maybe you’re feeling stuck? 

Not sure about a move to a new role, an internal shift where you’ll challenge your leadership to ‘get on the bus’ with a major initiative, or possibly going after a new board seat?

Purpose-driven clarity is like rocket fuel. It jolts you into action, honoring fear and doubt while not letting them get in the way of your progress.

To help you gain even greater purpose-driven clarity, I’d like to share something crazy I did this month,...

There is Reason for Optimism in 2022

There is Reason for Optimism in 2022

I hope your year is off to a healthy, productive, and impactful start!

What do you love about what you do?

For me, I love being the guide so you, your team, or your colleagues can be the hero. While very aware of the importance of data, it’s not so exciting to me.

There was, however, some notable data that came out of 2021 that (I feel) is important for you to know, so we can learn and improve from it.

First, the "not so good news" uncovered from a pre-coaching assessment that was filled by the 10 female heart-centered leaders I was so honored to have worked with 1:1 in 2021 as well as the facilitations done for their managers and from the virtual speaking events that reached thousands.

  • Female leaders are still feeling silenced, overlooked, and disregarded by their leadership.
  • This is exacerbating overwhelm and burnout.
  • Change is happening, but these inequities are not spoken about or addressed quick enough.

I’d like to...

Two Ways to Get Clear on What Really Matters in 2022

 

Two Ways to Get Clear on What Really Matters in 2022

Do you ever get distracted or veer from what’s most important? Maybe you’re too overwhelmed to think about it, or you’re not even clear on what it is anymore! If so, you’re definitely not alone. Maybe it’s time to course-correct and get more strategic about the year you want to have and the impact you’re going to create in 2022…

This has certainly been a year of reflection, and it’s the perfect time to get clear on what matters most to you, how you’d like to achieve it, and how you’d like to feel in the process.

Maybe you’re so busy that you don’t have time to make a shift, or you are not sure where to start. As we wind up the year, here are a couple of things that might help create the impact you want and deserve on your terms.

Consider that goals are not just about your career, such as meeting/exceeding projections, having more influence with leadership,...

Time to DE-CIDE on Your Next Best Move?

It’s Spring (finally!), and it’s possible that it’s time for a new beginning, a shift. Maybe it’s a shift in your morning routine, how much you commit to speaking up, the intent that you go after a raise, promotion or the recognition that you’re yearning for. Maybe it’s a big shift in terms of how you lead, where you lead or in what capacity.

Phonetically speaking, "de" means "of" and "cide" means, well "death." When you DE-CIDE, it’s the death of any other option.

How to Get Started with Meditation

Absolutely thrilled to share my interview with fellow certified high performance coach Kerry Smith of The Awakening Trainings.

Kerry and her husband Colin believe everyone deserves to be happy and it is everyone's birthright to live a life that cultivates inner happiness, one that comes from within and could never be fulfilled with outward desires. It is only filled with inward clarity, stillness and passion for growth, ignited by one’s own inner wisdom. They have Instilled the importance of inner peace and wisdom in the reality of their daily lives and has devoted a deep meditation practice twice a day as part of their very rigorous spiritual routine for the last 26 years.
