    Reflecting on Growth with Michelle Dittmer

    Episode 88: Reflecting on Growth with Michelle Dittmer

    Do you take the time to look back and really reflect on your own growth? 

    Unless you're working with a coach, you probably don't. That's why I really wanted you to hear this conversation between myself and my amazing client Michelle Dittmer of Canadian Gap Year Association. 

    Not too long ago I sat down with Michelle for a final coaching call with her. Michelle and I had been working together for 6 months and she had come so incredibly far in that time. This was recorded as a real-life coaching call and was not intended as a podcast, however, when I listened back to it, I felt what Michelle reflects upon is so universal and would be so valuable for other business owners to hear. 

    With Michelle's permission, I share this inside look at what a coaching session with me looks like. Listen as she reflects back on the different areas of growth, she has experienced over the past 6 months and as she starts to envision her own future growth.

    Episode #84: Building and Inclusive Business with Christina Sackeyfio

    This episode is the audio recording of a session that took place within the Mamas & Co. community. Our members were deeply affected by the events that led to the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement around the world.

    It was clear, that as an international organization, and one that prided itself in being inclusive, we had to step-up and give our members, and ourselves, the opportunity to learn what we didn’t know and grow by providing the platform for us to engage in uncomfortable conversations and ask the difficult questions.

    We asked Christina Sackeyfio of Boldly Inclusive to help us navigate the sensitive and highly important issues of diversity, inclusion and belonging. It was essential that we, as business owners and leaders create spaces where everyone, clients and employees, belong and can thrive. Christina shared her 5 pillars of building an inclusive business as well as answered hard-hitting questions from our members.

    This was an eye-opening talk, and it gave resources to help our members become better educated in systemic racism, the steps to take in becoming better allies, and how they can become better leaders in their own communities.

    Episode 83: My Favourite Business Books Part 2

    It's been a year since I put out my first list of my top 10 favourite business books. But since then, I've done a lot more learning and growing. My new favourite way to learn is by listening to audiobooks and I have discovered some great ones since that first episode came out 12 months ago. 

    I believe that reading is food for the soul, and I do hope that you’re able to explore one of these books during your downtime...

    This time around I group these 10 books into a few different "themes" such as business culture, inspiration, marketing, finance… there is truly something for everyone here.

    If you're looking for your next great business read, then this episode is for you.

Mamas, listen and rise up!

Lianne is real. She gets vulnerable and asks us to as well and encourages us to rise up to our potential. I can’t say enough about Lianne and her energy and her wisdom. Listen to her podcast to get inspired, to get or keep on track in your business and to get your mindset in alignment with your business goals. Love this podcast!
