I’m really excited for our guest today, Sarah Marie Liddle. Sarah is a certified life and corporate coach with a specialization in positive psychology. Positive psychology is the scientific study of human flourishing and an applied approach to optimal functioning.

As part of this functioning, Sarah and I talked about finding and leveraging our strengths. We so often are focused on our weaknesses and how we can improve them that we completely ignore our strengths. I believe that each one of us has unique strengths that we can leverage at work.

I used to think that if I was going to get a job or a promotion that I had to know every part of the job description. And if I had a weakness, I had to fill the gap so I was “well rounded”. What an error in my thinking! To be great, we need to know where we shine.

Sarah and I also talked about various strengths assessment tools so you can learn more about your strengths right after this podcast. If you haven’t taken a strengths test, I highly recommend that you do this! There are so many options out there, and many of them are free. Take this time and invest in yourself! I promise it will make a difference.

    EP: 57 Remove Your Mask with Dion Johnson

    53:44

    Have you ever met someone and immediately connected with them? When I met my guest for this episode that's exactly what happened! Dion Johnson, AKA the Womanologist, has an amazing story of struggle and triumph that I'm excited for you to hear.  Do you stay in a job or a relationship because it's just comfortable or safer to stay? So many of us struggle with wearing masks and not letting our true selves shine. Dion has worn both a physical and metaphorical mask which caused her to lose confidence, the ability to speak, and held her back from success.  In this episode, you'll hear Dion's story and learn how to drop your mask, especially to succeed as a woman in higher management.  Resources: Brave Women at Work: https://www.bravewomenatwork.com/ Brave Women at Work Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bravewomenatwork Dion Johnson:  http://thewomanologist.com/

    EP: 56 Microdosed Mindfulness with Janet Fouts

    47:02

    My guest today, Janet Fouts, is an expert on taking care of ourselves and others. Janet and I talked about her new book, Micro Dosed Mindfulness (the book isn't out yet, but soon!), and how we can apply small techniques throughout our day to increase our awareness, lower our stress and increase our productivity. Unlike many of my guests, Janet and I did not meet on LinkedIn. I was introduced to Janet via a podcast placement agency, and I’m so glad that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know her. Janet is a calm presence, but also a tell it how it is person, which I love. I want to stress here that when we talk about mindfulness during this show that you don’t need to be a yogi or meditation expert to apply mindfulness. Just taking a breath before taking a phone call or having an important meeting can make a big difference in how that call or presentation goes. And by stacking up these moments of mindfulness, you can have a positive impact on your work and life. Here’s more about Janet: An accomplished entrepreneur, business leader, executive coach, speaker, and corporate trainer, Janet Fouts skillfully works at the nexus of tech, neuroscience, and mindfulness. She believes deeply in the value of self-awareness and emotionally intelligent communication at all levels of business. Her focus is on creating and executing effective human-centric strategies for leadership and relationship management which opens the door for clients to live a more fulfilling life at work and at home.

    EP: 55 Emotional Intelligence in a Changing Workplace with Sonal Sheth Zawahri

    1:04:05

    We’ve touched on the topic of emotional intelligence during the podcast before, but not as the depth as today’s show. So, what is emotional intelligence or EQ for short? Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict. Why should we care about emotional intelligence? If you just focus on getting tasks done without keying into your emotions or the emotions of others you can really miss the undertone of a work or personal situation, be perceived incorrectly, miss opportunities, and more. Being a good leader (whether that’s an individual employee or a leader of a group) isn’t just about completing tasks. As we know, we can have robots complete tasks. It’s the emotional component and learning how to understand ourselves and others that set us apart. And here’s the great news! You can learn and develop your emotional intelligence skills! During my conversation today with my guest, Sonal Sheth-Zawahri, we go into more detail on emotional intelligence, how this skill is important in today’s changing workplace, and how we can hone it to reach our goals personally and professionally. Listen in to this show to hone your emotional intelligence muscles!

    EP: 53 Grit vs. Grind: Make the Switch and Feel the Difference

    24:24

    What is the difference between grit and grind? I heard this concept referenced recently in a “We Can Do Hard Things” with Glennon Doyle and Brene Brown and I wanted to share my own spin on this concept. Like I’ve mentioned in this podcast before, working women have the tendency to take on all the things without thinking about how it makes us feel. So I wanted to talk about the difference between working in the grind vs. grit and how working with grit is a game-changer. In the show, I talk about the following: - the definition between grit and grind - the hallmarks of being in grit vs. grind - ways to move towards living and working with grit The bottom line is that when we’re operating in our place of grit, it makes work feel like play. We feel full of life and in our highest place of power. And working and living from that place makes all the difference.

    EP: 52 Heart Boss with Regan Walsh

    38:39

    I know that I feature a lot of books on the Brave Women at Work show, but the book Heart Boss by Regan Walsh really stole my heart. It's a great mix of Regan's personal stories and wisdom that get you thinking about how you can start trusting your intuition more. I know that I often get caught up with being in my head instead of my heart. And while thinking logically will take us very far, sometimes you just have to go with your gut. During this conversation, Regan shares examples from her life and career when she did just that and proves that when you listen to your heart, you will always land in the right place. Listen in to be inspired and motivated to take a deeper look at your own stories and to learn to trust yourself more than ever before. Here’s a bit more about Regan: Regan Walsh is an NYU-certified executive and life coach who focuses on helping women who are over-programmed and underwhelmed to reclaim their lives, both personally and professionally. She contributes to Harvard Business Review and Forbes, and has been featured in Fast Company, Smart Business, NBC.com, and Today. She has coached thousands of women through her one-on-one and group coaching programs, and she is regularly asked to give keynotes, facilitate workshops, and speak on panels for Fortune 500 companies, industry associations, and foundations. She has done so for clients like Nike, QuickBooks, JPMorgan, Nationwide Insurance, and more, for audiences ranging from 50 to 1,000. She is also the author of Heart Boss: Trust Your Gut, Shed Your Shoulds and Create a Life You Love.

    EP: 51 We Building with Laura Kriska

    44:44

    We’re going to talk about a very important topic - living and working in diverse and equitable cultures. You may have heard about this as DEI or diversity, equity, and inclusion. DEI is a term used to describe programs and policies that encourage representation and participation of diverse groups of people, including people of different genders, races and ethnicities, abilities and disabilities, religions, cultures, ages, and sexual orientations and people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skills and expertise. It’s a hot button at work today for sure and for good reason. We will get farther ahead personally and professionally if we build the concept of “we” rather than staying in our own groups. It is important to understand the perspective of people that don’t believe what you believe or have different roots or a different upbringing. If we work towards a culture of acceptance, we can truly live, work and interact better together. I recently met someone who has lived in other cultures and is striving towards “we building". Laura Kriska, is an expert on cross-cultural relations with more than 30 years of experience bridging gaps in diverse workplaces. She has worked with Fortune 500 companies on four continents helping thousands of professionals build trust across Us versus Them differences based on nationality, ethnicity, race, religion, age, or any factor of identity. Laura’s We-building framework provides practicable and actionable insights for creating a more inclusive and productive world. Laura and I talked about the following during our conversation: 1. How many of us grow up and live in homogenous towns 2. Ways we can branch out and encourage "we building" in homes and workplaces 3. How a lack of "we building" can happen between many different groups, including different cultures, races, religions, sexes, etc. I was educated and encouraged by Laura’s words and I’m confident you will be too.

    EP: 50 Find Your Red Thread with Tamsen Webster

    46:21

    So, you’re probably wondering, “What is the red thread?” A red thread is the through-line of any story. It’s the answer to why people should care. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve blurted out my ideas without fully thinking them through. The words fall out of my mouth because of habit or because I’m afraid I’m going to forget my idea if I hold onto it. Can you relate? During my conversation with Tamsen Webster, author of Find Your Red Thread: Make Your Big Ideas Irresistible, TedX speaker, and consultant, we discussed the importance of fully forming our ideas and presenting them with impact. When we follow these steps, people will buy into our ideas and endorse them. And who doesn’t want that? Tamsen and I also discussed:   The back story behind the red thread A few tips on how we can find our own red threads What the idea gap is and how we can fill it What mental hurdles may be stopping us from sharing our big ideas   This was such a fun and enlightening conversation. I hope you enjoy it and find your red thread as a result!

    EP: 49 Put Your Oxygen Mask on First

    20:43

    With many working women feeling a bit drained around this time of year, I thought it would be a good reminder for all of us to put our oxygen masks on first. So, what do I mean by this? The phrase comes from the information that flight attendants give everyone before flying. The flight attendants say to put your mask on before helping everyone else, even your children and family members. So, what does this mean in reality? It simply means to make sure you are taking care of yourself before others. I know. Scandalous! We are so used to taking care of our boss’s needs, our partner’s needs, our children’s needs, our family and friends’ needs, and on and on. When we take care of everyone else, we can get pushed to the wayside. Neglecting ourselves can lead to illness and burnout, which doesn't benefit anyone. So, I’m here to remind you that you need to put yourself at the top of the list in small ways every day. Listen in to learn how!

    EP: 48 Build Your Brand Story with Athena Golianis

    53:36

    I have a quote for today’s discussion on personal branding. It is “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you're than you!” This quote is from Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss was right. There is no one you-er than you. And each person that you encounter has their own unique strengths and perspectives. You can call it their personal brand. Today we’re going to explore what a brand is and why you should care about your own personal brand. If you are thinking, “Jen I have no idea what you’re talking about,” no worries. My guest today, Athena Golianis, and I will also share the steps you can take to find your own personal brand. I’m going to give you a spoiler alert on why this topic is important. Your brand is important because it’s the perception that people have of you. It’s the story they tell themselves in their heads about you. And while I’m not saying that we should be overly concerned about the opinions of others, we should be cognizant of the story we’re contributing to because it can impact whether we get the new job, the promotion, the opportunity to lead the project, whatever. Remember, "You too are a brand. Whether you know it or not. Whether you like it or not." This quote is from Marc Ecko, a fashion designer, and entrepreneur. Enjoy this episode and take action today to build and reinforce your personal brand! Here’s more about Athena: Athena Golianis: CEO, Creator PINKK LLC and President, Founder of AGW Idea Group, Inc. She has worked on venerable blue-chip brands like Arthur Andersen, Sears, Kraft Foods, Wal-Mart Sam’s Club, Hillshire Farms, Sara Lee, Midas, Alberto Culver haircare brands, (Unilever) Beltone, the City of Chicago in addition to name a few for many formative years. In 2005 she became a dedicated entrepreneur and opened her own agency AGW Idea Group and has successfully run her marketing consulting and branding agency for over 15 years and continues to do so. She has launched start-ups and helped to grow and rebrand others like VENeffect, BreatheAmerica, Precision HealthCare, Citadel Healthcare, Kiva Recovery, Diamond Bank (now Wintrust) amongst others. At this time as she is also taking her understanding of building brands to create PINKK and using her experience and knowledge to empower, inspire, coach, mentor, and provide resources for women with this brand experience and platform.
