    Use WHAT you Know to Get to WHERE You Want to Be with Dr. Marcia Clark

    Use WHAT you Know to Get to WHERE You Want to Be with Dr. Marcia Clark

    Use Frameworks to support your confidence! Today I am speaking with Dr. Marcia Clark, orthopedic surgeon and Health Tech Advisor about how she has used skills from her surgical career to support her confidence as she transitions into the space of supporting women in Tech.
    Although she feels less comfortable in this space, she has used the RISE Framework to support her transition and interactions with those who have worked in this field for significantly longer. Both fields are male-dominated and she has risen to the challenge to support other women in navigating success in this arena. She speaks to the importance of the professional networks she has intentionally developed to support her success and that of others. In fact, she refers to herself as a network weaver.

    Celebrate to Empower your Performance and Achieve Success!

    Celebrate to Empower your Performance and Achieve Success!

    Celebration is the key to success!
    The topic of celebration is one that I have been thinking a lot about lately. Is celebrating just a waste of time or are there proven benefits? What is the relationship to empowered performance and building confidence? How might you celebrate your successes? Many of you may be thinking that this sounds like just another ‘to do’ item on a long list of things that seem more important.
    I’m here to tell you that celebrating is one of the most important ways of empowering your performance and being recognized for all the great things you do! There is even evidence that celebrating can promote happiness and result in the actual release of ‘happy chemicals’ in your brain! Who wouldn’t want that?
    Celebrating can be as simple as taking a few minutes for self-care or developing a practice of gratitude for what you have achieved and what you are going to do in the future. Celebrate in whatever way suits you best! Just do it!

    Move Beyond Limiting Beliefs to Own Your Confidence with Dr. Kelly Casperson

    Move Beyond Limiting Beliefs to Own Your Confidence with Dr. Kelly Casperson

    Confidence at work and in the bedroom comes from adopting a growth mindset!
    This month our podcast features Dr. Kelly Casperson.  Dr. Casperson is a urologist and coach who is interested in the power of our minds to change our views of sexuality.  After a life-changing experience with a patient, she was inspired to combine her skills and knowledge as a surgeon with her earlier education as a neuroscientist to become a coach.  She talked to me about her training and career as a female in the male-dominated world of urology and how the feeling of not belonging can shake your confidence.  We talked about the cultural basis for feeling like you don’t belong and the universality of feeling like an outsider.
    Dr. Casperson works as a coach for female surgeons as well as a coach for women wanting to improve their sexual health.  We talked about how thoughts impact relationships and Dr. Casperson suggests that the brain is the biggest sexual organ.  She delves into this with her podcast and work through "You are Not Broken."
    As we went through some of the derailers of confidence, we focused on feeling not good enough and negative thoughts which Dr. Casperson describes as limiting beliefs.  We talked about the interplay between thoughts, feelings, and actions and how to build relationships to feel empowered to succeed in your own individual way.
    Join Beth as she speaks with Dr. Kelly Casperson about self-confidence, mindset, and addressing thoughts and feelings before actions.

She embodies someone who has used some of the principles of our unique RISE framework to support her confidence and empower her performance!

    The Journey from a Fear of Public Speaking to Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta with Justice Anna Loparco

    The Journey from a Fear of Public Speaking to Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta with Justice Anna Loparco

    Moving from uncertainty to success is a path of persistence!
    Learn about how a fear of public speaking and speech impediment led Justice Loparco to develop a strategy to pursue her childhood dream of becoming a lawyer. Based in an immigrant family with a strong work ethic, her first ventures into standing up for others were found within supporting her immediate family, including her parents and sister.
    Justice Loparco continues to successfully address the Six Derailers of Confidence by building and sustaining strong networks. She also sees failure as an opportunity to learn and grow, one of the basic tenets of a growth mindset. Moving from good to great and great to exceptional has been a persistent and sustained journey which Justice Loparco continues to live each and every day!
    Join Debrah as she speaks with Justice Anna Loparco, Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta. Justice Loparco discusses the importance of working where your passion lies, strategically developing networks, and learning from past experiences.
