12/22/2021
Light out of darkness: the theme of so many holidays at this time of year. Know what else is all about light out of darkness? Resilience Resilience isn't being impervious to setbacks - it's the ability to bounce back from setbacks. Which is good, because we all deal with disappointments!

S2 Ep 20: Exploring Self-Gratitude (+ group hug!)

11/24/2021
It's Gratitude Time! Gratitude gives us a different (bigger) perspective on our lives. It can make us feel humble, small, receptive. That's awesome. Except when it goes too far. Then it's not great. When we have too much humility, we may not advocate for ourselves like we should, whether at work, at home, or with any opportunity. In this episode, we turn gratitude inward, to discover how to be grateful to ourselves, by ourselves. Does that make you feel weird or selfish? Oh then you...

S2 Ep 19: Prioritizing - First Thing First

11/10/2021
I’m going to go on record here saying that the word "priorities" plural is just messed up. The word priority (singular) means the thing that goes first. As in, the singular first position. Saying that we can have more than one thing in the first position is a recipe for stress and overwhelm and divided attention. And here's a Big Truth: Our priorities aren't what we say they are, they're what we actually DO. Our priorities aren't defined by our vision boards or the goals we set for...

In this episode we explore: Don't be scared to look your Fear Friend in the eye! You might find you have a lot to chat...

S2 Ep 18 (Mini): The Harvest of Your Choices

10/6/2021
Hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, and those puffy vests that people dig out of the back of their closet as soon as the weather gets a slight chill. Ah yes autumn! My favorite season. Whenever autumn comes around, it sends me into self-reflection mode. Something about the world shedding its summer glory to rest into winter's chill inspires me to slow down and think: How has my year gone so far? Are there things I need to change to get better results before the end of the year? What results have...

S2 Ep 17: Courage + Taking Risks

8/30/2021

What if I told you that courage is not a prerequisite for taking risks, but a RESULT of taking risks? Interested in learning more? In today's episode, we explore a new way to think about courage: instead of an unpredictable emotion, courage is a muscle that we can train and build, so that it's ready to use when we need it. New learning...

S2 Ep 16: Dealing With Toxic People - Narcissists

8/16/2021

Especially if you consider yourself an empathetic, loving person, don't skip this one. You'll find you're...

7/20/2021
Ah, personal and professional branding. There's a slew of information out there on creating your brand through your online profiles, your personal elevator speech, etc. The problem? You already HAVE a brand, whether you have a LinkedIn profile or not. And if everyone thinks you're a pain in the butt, the fanciest elevator speech in the world won't help you.

S2 Ep 11: Managing Conflict (Without Becoming A Jerk)

6/3/2021
Conflict is NOT a 4-letter word! If your reaction to conflict is either: then today's episode is going to change your perspective (with no anger or yelling at all!) The truth is, most of us don't like the idea of conflict - we think it'll feel messy, personal, and damaging. But it doesn't have to be that way.

S2 Ep 10: Emotional Intelligence 101: What's Love + Hate + Fear Got To Do With It?

5/20/2021
Humans are emotion-driven creatures, whether we want to admit it or not. And many of the most challenging situations that come up for us aren't based strictly on fact - they're based on feeling: managing conflicts, change, influencing others, sales, delegating. Trying to fix a feeling-based problem with a fact-based solution, ain't gonna help. In this episode we dig into the work of Daniel Goleman, who wrote (arguably) THE book on Emotional Intelligence (EQ). He says: "The rules for work...

I’m all for individuality - doing things your own way! Forging your own path through life! Woo! Unique Rules! But hey. If someone has learned a lesson the hard way, or has figured out an amazing technique for dealing with a situation, why reinvent the wheel? We may be unique, but it doesn't mean we're remote desert islands in a sea of I Gotta Figure This Out By Myself. We're more like an Archipelago of Shared Knowledge, washed in a sea of Human Experience. This metaphor is going off the...
