    Making Self-Care Impactful with Angela McKay

    Making Self-Care Impactful with Angela McKay

    In this episode, we talk about a subject many women SAY is important, but they DO very little to practice in a way that makes their life better. Of course, we’re talking about Self-care.
     Are you the woman who wears the weight of the world on your shoulders; are you overwhelmed and driven. Do you take pride in the fact that you’re a do-it-all woman?
     If you are, you are in excellent company! I TICKED OFF ALL THOSE BOXES when I was a corporate career woman. And so did my next guest, which is why I’ve invited her to join me on today’s episode.
     Angela McKay is an HR Executive, wife, and mom who learned the hard way that she needed to prioritize herself amidst all the busyness. As a result, she became committed to taking the cliche out of self-care and now helps others put themselves first. She works with overwhelmed, driven, do-it-all women to help them set aside more meaningful time for themselves. 
    Her tips are pure gold if you struggle with finding the best way to make self-care impactful for yourself. Don’t miss this one!

    Options: There's Always More Than One with Katrine Horn

    When facing a career change, whether you’re out of work, unhappy in your job, or looking for the next right role for you, the first thing you need to do is explore your options. 
    But that isn’t always a straight road. And, sometimes, it can feel overwhelming. But, on the other hand, it might seem like there are no good options at all. 
    So today, we’ll talk with Katrine Horn about how to explore your options, why settling isn’t one of them, and what you can do to leverage what you know how to do so you can do what you love to do.

    The Lie of Alone & the Promise of Together with Sandhya Jha

    The Lie of Alone & the Promise of Together with Sandhya Jha

    In last week’s episode, we learned about burnout and why it’s so common among workplace conditions that go unmanaged. The chronic stress, exhaustion, and feelings of being disconnected and ineffective at work can be hard to overcome. 
    This episode shares a personal and vulnerable story about how burnout affected this very dynamic and successful woman. Sandhya Jha is the founder and former executive director of the Oakland Peace Center, a collective of 40 organizations working to create equity, access, and dignity as the means of creating peace in Oakland and the Bay Area. A big job with a critical mission.
    She says she found herself “doing work I didn’t enjoy in a place I loved.” Are you experiencing that—doing work you don’t enjoy in a place you love?
    Tune in and hear how Sandhya’s burnout was years in the making and how she was too close to see what was happening. 
    The lessons she learned are gold for the rest of us.

    Keeping Burnout at Bay with Natasha Dewhirst

    Keeping Burnout at Bay with Natasha Dewhirst

    Burnout. We hear this term a lot as it relates to work. In fact, it has been added to the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases. And the term is used to describe an occupational phenomenon. It’s not classified as a medical condition—but it feels like one.
    Burnout is defined as a syndrome resulting from chronic workplace stress that hasn’t been successfully managed. When someone suffers from exhaustion or depleted energy, an overall negative outlook feels distanced from their job, and feels less effective at work, they are often diagnosed with burnout.
    We talk about burnout with Natasha Dewhirst in this episode. You’ll learn why it’s so common, who’s at more risk, and how to help ourselves or someone else who’s on the verge of burnout.
