    How to Build Better Bosses

    How to Build Better Bosses

    One thing we hear a lot about is how hard it is to be a boss—and how much people don’t like their bosses. And while there are a ton of leadership books and experts on this topic, we find the best teachers are the people who have been in the boss's shoes before and navigate through it. Enter today’s guest: Melissa Nightingale, now the co-founder of Raw Signal Group and co-author with Jonathan Nightingale on a new book called Unmanageable: Leadership Lessons From an Impossible Year. Melissa isn’t one of those fluffy leadership experts—she really freaking gets it and you’ll agree as you listen to this interview and her incredible advice on how we can build better bosses today—and in the future.

    The Argument for the "Good Enough" Job

    The Argument for the "Good Enough" Job

    On today’s episode we’re discussing the argument for the  “good enough” job including 4 reasons you should seek out a job that is good enough rather than a “dream job” that you feel pressured into. And a quick listener note, this is a recycled episode from January 2021 back when our show was called The Femails. We’re replaying this episode because it was both a listener favorite and because it is full of great lessons we can take with us into 2022.

    Quitting Your Job with No Plan B

    Quitting Your Job with No Plan B

    On today’s episode we are re-sharing one of our favorite interviews with Tess Vigeland, author of Leap: Leaving a Job with No Plan B to Find the Career and Life You Really Want. Listen in for an honest conversation with Tess about leaving high status jobs without something impressive lined up. Seeing as many people are thinking about what’s next for them in their career, this conversation seemed timely to re-share.  I also think it’s very timely to re-share this conversation as so many people are thinking about what’s next for them in their career. Maybe that means no job. Maybe that means pursuing the good enough job. Or maybe that means staying where you are but working on your attachment between your job title and self-worth.

Eye opening

Thank you so much. This has been an eye opening one for me. It just clicked that my obsession with being liked has really held me back in my career. 💛🙏🏻
