Leading with Compassion - 4 Principles to Adopt When Navigating Fear or Uncertainty - Ep #30

 

It’s more important now than ever for us to come together.

Connecting as people, we have to learn to communicate with others who have differing beliefs and opinions, without an agenda to persuade or convince that we are “in the right”.

What if we led with compassion and kindness?

Today I’m sharing with you 4 principals I’ve learned that have helped me show up and connect with others through challenging times.  While these may be common sense, they are often not practiced, especially when it comes to communication in our virtual world.

  1. Assume good intent.
  2. Listen to understand and connect. 
  3. Follow the golden rule 
  4. Ask yourself “What opportunity does this create?”

May these simple, yet powerful principals remind us to lead with compassion.

Talk Like You Mean It - Showing up to Conversations as Your Best Self - Ep #29

 

Think back to an interaction you had with someone this last week that didn’t go as well as you’d hoped for.  Maybe your kiddo left their legos on the hallway floor (again) and you lost your cool. You and your partner fought about money,  your VA missed a date on an email campaign or a customer gave you some tough feedback.

Whatever the conversation, there’s a high chance that you didn’t show up in those moments as the best version of yourself and there are things you could have done differently.

You can’t change the past, but of course, you can learn from it.

Connection with others is the richness to our lives and business, so today I’m giving you some tools to help you show up in these critical conversations with more intentionality so that you can nurture the relationships that matter most.

I’ll introduce to you my framework for snapping out of the trance of the daily autopilot to engage in richer, more aligned...

Honor the Struggle - 7 Insights from my Experience with Brendon Burchard - Ep #28

 

When it comes to business (and life), the question we should continually be asking ourselves is:

Where am I going and how am I growing?

Now, I’m not shy about talking about how important personal development is to your business and I highly encourage my students and clients to invest in their development by attending live events. 

To give you a little taste of just how transformational these experiences can be, I’m sharing about my experience at Brendon Burchard’s live event, HPX (High Performance Experience). Specifically, the 7 insights that resonated most with me that I think will do the same for you.

  1. Going through the motions is the death of high performance.
  2. Evaluate your practice is not your personhood. 
  3. People at the highest level strategically release (let it go).
  4. It doesn't matter how many people say no to you, as long as you say yes to yourself.
  5. A person's gratitude for life is most demonstrated in their time at management.
  6. Bring...

How to Focus on Inner Work to Achieve that Outer Glow - Ep #20

 

We all want that outer glow. And I'm not talking about that dewy skin, outer glow like Giselle. I'm talking about magnetism. Or as we call it around here, the “It Factor”. 

Today I’m sharing that the secret to embracing your “It Factor”  is the inner work you do to grow yourself personally and professionally.  You and I both know that personal growth is a huge determining factor for online business success.

You can’t find it, you have to create it. In this episode I’m sharing three specific actions that you can take -- that don’t require much effort or time -- that will help you take small steps (and big leaps) to create that outer glow and achieve those big goals.

A Seemingly Invisible Disability - The Real Story Behind My Hearing Loss and How it Led to My Superpower - Ep #17

 

It surprises most people to learn that I have a hearing loss and often leads to a lot of questions, especially since I’ve built my coaching business on the topic of communications.

For today’s episode, I’m going unscripted and getting super raw *bring the tissues* to share with you the real truth behind my seemingly invisible disability (and how it led to my superpower).

P.S… did you know more than 5% of the world's population – or 466 million people – has disabling hearing loss. That’s 432 million adults and 34 million children. While you might not be one of them, you more than likely know someone who struggles with their hearing. I hope this episode gives you some insight into their world. 

[Stats from the World Health Organization]

Was I born with it? No. Am I deaf? No. How has it impacted my life? So. Many. Ways.
