Podcast Episode #101: "Strategies for Building Confidence in Your New Role" - an Interview with Dena Jones

 

Strategies for Building Confidence in Your New Role

In case you missed my LIVE interview with the phenomenal Dena Jones (Vice President, Office of the CIO at Fannie Mae), here are a few of the wisdom gems she shared:  

  • You don’t need to check all the boxes, a couple of the boxes are fine... and you need to go for it
  • Take more risks
  • Realize you don't have to do it on your own
  • Build a network of people around you that can support you and guide you. Have mentors and sponsors
  • Always seek to learn more and grow. That never stops. It’s not like you get to a place and say "okay, I’m here and I don’t need to learn anymore"
  • Listen to each other. Listen to different perspectives
  • Do something transformational
  • Verbalize what you’re good at
  • If you feel too comfortable, it’s time to reassess what you're doing
  • Always articulate what you want

The Impact of Full Presence (May Surprise You!)

On a scale of 1-10...

... how do you rate yourself on how present you are with those who matter the most?

Despite running hard at their dreams, high performers are remarkably present, especially with those who matter the most. Let’s not wait until tragedy strikes until we realize we should be more present... or worse yet, to lose the opportunity to be present and then have to live with that regret.

Here are a couple ways to take your presence to the next level, so you can make others feel seen, heard and cared for:

  1. Put down everything you are doing, and look into their eyes
  2. Be explicit and tell the person "I really want to hear you"
