Podcast Episode #117: "Delivering Tough Feedback Effectively Across Organizations" - an Interview with Brenda Hudson

 

Delivering Tough Feedback Effectively Across Organizations

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the phenomenal Brenda Hudson (Senior Vice President Commercial Sales, Sales Enablement, Learning and Development at Insight), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • Tuck away all the behaviors you’ve experienced that will not exhibit.
  • Have grace, honesty, clarity, and compassion.
  • Be sure to share ‘why’ you’re sharing the feedback you are.
  • Exhibit gratitude for the recipient of the conversation.
  • An inability to build trust will restrict your elevation in your career and in life.
  • Listen, be authentic, and align your actions with your words to build that trust.
  • Don’t be afraid to speak up and go against the grain when it’s a win/win/win for the other person, you, and your company.

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
