14: All the Feelings
Many of us dream of being able to deliver a great speech that inspires people to do the unthinkable. But the reality is that often we walk onto a stage or into a presentation a jittery mess, full of nerves and anxiety which of course then causes us to forget every amazing point we were going to make. Guest Brittany Rabena Wolf joins us to discuss what to do when you have All the Feelings at the worst moment and in the worst way (shaky voice, hives, sweating). For more information about this...
13: Feedback Framework
Giving feedback has the opportunity to build someone up but if not done properly, it has the ability to turn someone’s day or week upside down. But with all that we have on our plates, many of us aren’t carving out the time and opportunities to give powerful, meaningful positive or corrective feedback, that can help those around us. And even if we do have the time, do we even know that we are delivering the feedback in a way that will really set someone up for success? This week on What...
12: Intent vs Impact
We’ve all heard the saying “lost in translation” but what about when things get lost in their delivery? How do you make sure that when you have a difficult conversation with someone, your message is delivered and received? On this week’s episode of What Would She Do, we are going to tackle one of the most important lessons I’ve ever learned in my career; the difference between intent versus impact and the importance of keeping these two things aligned.

11: Can Women Have it All?, volume 1
As young girls, we grew up thinking we were going to get married, have careers where we were a part of the executive team, we were going to have families, be fit, have children, and be happy. It didn’t take long in our 20’s to realize that doing all of this at once, or even at all, may be close to impossible. So, what’s the impact on us and what is the impact to future generations? Guest Christine Fitts comes back to the studio to discuss and debate whether Women Can Have It All. For more...
10: Leadership: Generosity and Courage
No one teaches you to be a leader. You usually get promoted, inherit a team and are left to figure out how to manage others, all on your own. But what makes a good leader? What is the difference between just managing others versus being a leader? Jeannie Gammon Oliver joins me to begin our discussion on traits of effective leaders, beginning with the importance of being generous and when to be courageous.

Turning the tables during an interview
Most jobs interviews last on average 45 minutes. Of those 45 minutes, the interviewee is given 5 minutes to ask questions of the interviewer. Why isn’t there an opportunity for both sides to ask questions of each other, equally? Given the imbalance, it is critical that you have an arsenal of questions to ask that can give you insight into a company, the boss and/or the environment. In this week’s episode of What Would She Do, I’ll share questions that I like to ask potential employers...
7: 40 interviews later, everyone asks the same questions
From 1997 - 2017, I’ve done over 23 different job interviews. In addition to that, in the last 10 months I’ve interviewed over 40 times! Not only do I feel like I’ve encountered just about every possible interview question, I’ve spent time talking to HR and recruiting professionals about the reason behind certain interview questions, which in turn, has helped me find tune my answers. In this week’s episode of What Would She Do, I’ll share over a dozen interview questions, insights into why...
6: Working Across Generations
87% of employees worldwide are dis-engaged and this costs US companies between $450 – $550 billion, per year. One of the major causes of disengagement is due to generational conflict.

Guest Kira Copperman joins us to discuss understanding generations in the workplace and the value to being able to work across them. For more information...
