    5 Myths About Leadership That Are Holding You Back

    5 Myths About Leadership That Are Holding You Back

    Over my time as a leadership coach, I’ve heard from many emerging leaders what appear (to them) to be very valid reasons as to why they’re not ready for leadership. They might say, “I don’t know all I need to know yet”, “I’m not extroverted enough”, or “I don’t have the title of a leader”. These are all myths, or mis-truths, about leadership that WILL hold you back. They keep you playing small. They make you believe that you’re not capable enough to be a leader.
    The reality is, anyone can be a leader. But in order to get there, you must overcome these mental hurdles that are in your way. So in this episode, I delve deep into five common myths that could be holding you back from a leadership position. I also share simple strategies to help you get out of these blocks.

    Why Your Team Doesn’t Respect You (and what to do about it)

    Why Your Team Doesn’t Respect You (and what to do about it)

    As a leader, how can you get your team to respect you? This is a common question that many leaders ask when they begin with a new team or begin a leadership position for the very first time. Why is this important? If your team don’t respect you, they won’t follow you. If they don’t follow you,  you can’t make the impact you want as a leader. 
    An incredible amount of your job as a leader requires the support and power of the people in your team. I bet you thought it was the other way around! To some extent it is. But you rely on your team for so much. If they don’t respect you, they won’t be there to support and help you achieve your goals.
    This episode will share five reasons why your team doesn’t respect you, and I also share strategies to help you overcome this lack of respect. 
    Listen in on the podcast platform of your choice! I hope you enjoy this episode.

    Sound More Decisive When You Speak (Do THIS!)

    Sound More Decisive When You Speak (Do THIS!)

    Being indecisive or sounding indecisive when you speak is a common hurdle for many emerging leaders. Most of the time, it’s because you’re waiting for approval, permission or you’re fearful of saying the wrong thing. But when you sound indecisive when you speak, especially at work, it makes you look like you lack confidence in yourself - which in turn makes people question your capability at work. Sounding decisive when you speak is an important skill you must develop, and in this episode, you will learn how.
    I share with you the one major shift you need to make in your communication to sound more decisive (and this shift is extremely easy!). Then, I share with you two case studies so you can see the indecisive communication in action, understand what is wrong with it, and learn how to change it. You’ll learn what you should say instead to sound more decisive. 
    By the end of this episode, you will have a number of communication tools and sentences that you can use to sound more decisive at work, and ultimately, boost the level of confidence you convey to others.

    How Can Leaders Show Empathy?

    How Can Leaders Show Empathy?

    Empathy is critical in leadership. If you’re on-top of articles or books in the leadership space, you will no doubt know this. Empathy is discussed all of the time. But how can you build it? How can you show more empathy as a leader? In this episode, I break down this somewhat “mystical” concept of empathy and give you three easy steps to show more empathy as a leader.
