Latest Podcast: “The Importance of Visibility and Self Promotion for Women in Leadership" - an Interview with Christine Kiefer

Hello 2023! Exciting News!!

 

Happy New Year!

I am incredibly optimistic about the opportunities that lie ahead for women in leadership for 2023. With all the uncertainty with in economy, lay-offs, weather (as I watch the 20 waves in here in California), there is tremendous opportunity to rise while others speculate or are fearful of the ‘what ifs’.  

You are limitless, remember?:) Despite everything going on around you. 

For some, it’s been a very difficult time, and it’s with incredible respect and gratitude that I have for you to keep showing up and inching forward towards a better day. Take comfort in knowing that there is a proven process to help.

For others, opportunity has knocked, and you’ve opened the door wide open! You’ve raised your hand, and the universe has answered in a big way!  

Here are a few facts that I know and many that I didn’t know until I went to my husband’s dear friend, @Tiffany Shlain's opening exhibit at ...

Is Your Executive Membership Falling Short?

The world seems to be in a precarious place, and I believe wholeheartedly that the course correction that we need to see right now will be led by women (and fueled by some incredible male allies). Do you agree?

As part of the Limitless Leader community, you’re undoubtedly committed to being a heard, valued, respected, and energized agent of change, with your family, peers, subordinates, and with your leadership while empowering others to do the same.

In addition to being lit up by what’s possible, sometimes leaning into our highest sense of contribution and change, can be challenging, frustrating, and downright exhausting! Where our passion meets our expertise is our Olympics, our legacy, and what the world
so desperately needs to see right now.

Like the work put in by Olympians, the thousands of hours and days leading up to the culmination of our life’s work, sometimes in solitude, and often with no fanfare or recognition, you keep going.

Just as Olympians dream of...

The First Step to Unlocking Your Limitless Leadership

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the amazing Gina Tesla (Vice President, Sustainability and Social Impact, Coupa Software ), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • It is through times of loss or struggle, where you grow the most
  • Visualize yourself doing really well... visualize what’s going to happen.... visualize at the end how happy you feel or how proud others might feel of you, or how you feel like you really did a good job
  • Anything that you can do to take a little thing off of somebody’s plate is very beneficial
  • Take the time for yourself, take a breath, get your body in more of a receptive state, and say to yourself, "I can really see myself in this role, whether it’s a promotion, whether it’s presenting in a meeting" ... the first part is to really give yourself that permission to pause and visualize it
  • If you’re not comfortable talking to someone, write it in a journal...

The Importance of Empathetic Leadership

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the remarkable Lindsay Zwart (Chief Enterprise Officer and Director, Vodafone), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:

  • Leading with compassion and empathy is what sets women apart. We can’t begin to understand what our customers and our team require without understanding where they’re coming from.
  • You need to cut yourself a break and know that as much as you want to do everything, you don’t need to do everything. Pick what will be the best for you to engage and have the best outcome.
  • You are the outcome. If you put the right structures in place, you can find the right balance that you need. Because work will continue calling, part of it, is accountability on understanding it’s on you as well to not take on more.
  • It is imperative to ask for help when needed. There’s no shame in that. Bringing smart brains together, bringing the collaboration of minds can get you the...
