    100% Jodi: The Inconvenience of Happiness

    100% Jodi: The Inconvenience of Happiness

    Do you prefer convenience or happiness?
    You may be thinking, “Both!” But the reality is our long-term happiness and satisfaction usually requires a long series of inconveniences. In this episode I’m making a case for why you actually want to be inconvenienced a lot more.
    Hello, I’m Jodi Flynn and welcome to the Women Taking the Lead podcast. I’m an executive leadership coach, author, speaker, workshop facilitator and I have the joy to work with women leaders who want to hone the skills that will allow them to thrive in Senior Leadership. I know I’ve met a woman I would love to work with when we start having a few laughs about our tendencies toward perfectionism and people pleasing.
    I had been living in Maine for the past 18 years, but I am currently in Massachusetts staying with family while I prepare to make my final move to Virginia. Thanks to the beauty of technology, I’ve been able to continue to work with women all over the world even in the midst of so much movement and transition.
    I do individual coaching as well as workshops and team retreats, and I am the current President of the board for The Maine Women's Conference.
    I spend the free time I have catching up with friends and family, coordinating my move to Virginia, and finding calm by watching the Great British Baking Show.
    Applied knowledge is power If you spend any time with teenagers and young adults you’ve probably witnessed many occasions where they choose the short-term pleasure or convenience over the long-term gain.
    Currently living in a home with a 9-year-old, 13-year-old, and 19-year-old, I am treated to many conversations and behaviors around this very topic. I’ve also had a very direct conversation with my 21-year-old nephew about this.
    We’re always faced with things, great and small, that we’d rather not have to do. But if we want to reach our goals and find satisfaction and fulfillment – the things that truly make us happy – we have to make some sacrifices.
    You might be thinking, “Jodi, why are you taking a podcast episode to talk about this? I already know this.”
    I absolutely know that you know this. What I would ask you is, how closely are you living this?
    When working with my clients we make the distinction between what we know and what we believe.
    Sometimes we hear an idea or theory and think, “That sounds about right. That makes sense to me.”
    And if there is some science to back it up, we then consider ourselves to “know it.”
    There’s the saying, knowledge is power, but that’s not exactly true.
    Knowledge is potential power. Applied knowledge is power.
    If you are making the sacrifices necessary to achieve satisfaction and fulfillment in your life, great!
    If not, use this episode as a gentle reminder. Though we may “know” something it’s often helpful to have reminders to live what we know.
    In this episode are some examples of the short-term sacrifices or inconveniences I invite you to make so you can live a life that brings you satisfaction and fulfillment. 
    I'm also sharing suggestion for how to make it easier to make those sacrifices.
    I hope this is of value to you and here’s to your success!

    100% Jodi: How to Gently Go into a New Year of Uncertainty

    100% Jodi: How to Gently Go into a New Year of Uncertainty

    Are you ready for 2021?
    That can be a loaded question most years but this year it seems that question could easily set someone off.
    Given our routines have been upended, we have been through so much emotional upheaval, and the next year is uncertain, in this episode I’m going to give you a different kind of New Year exercise that is designed to support you no matter how you’re feeling about the past year or year to come.
    Hello, I’m Jodi Flynn and welcome to the Women Taking the Lead podcast. I’m an executive leadership coach, author, speaker, workshop facilitator and I have the joy to work with women leaders who want to hone the skills that will allow them to thrive in Senior Leadership. I know I’ve met a woman I would love to work with when we start having a few laughs about our tendencies toward perfectionism and people pleasing.
    I had been living in Maine for the past 18 years, but I am currently in Massachusetts staying with family while I prepare to make my final move to Virginia. Thanks to the beauty of technology, I’ve been able to continue to work with women all over the world even in the midst of so much movement and transition.
    I do individual coaching as well as workshops and team retreats, and I am the current President of the board for The Maine Women's Conference.
    I spend my free time catching up with friends and family, coordinating my move to Virginia, and lately I’ve been cooking more family-style meals with my sister and nieces. I have a few more skills in the kitchen.
    Do you have a few more skills this year? For many of us, the pandemic added a lot of stress and new responsibilities but ironically, also freed up a lot of our time. Because extra-curriculars, travel (even local travel), and events were cancelled or cut back, we’ve found ourselves with more space on our calendars.
    This free time, and a desire to distract ourselves from the uncertainty of our situations, brought on a boom of indulging in new and old hobbies, and polishing some skills.
    Many of you have improved your cooking and baking skills, have quickly upgraded your technical skills, and even the grandparents have become old hats at video conferencing.
    As we start to plan for 2021 let’s take a quick look back at 2020.
    My first question for you to consider is, what skills have you gained or improved upon in the past year?
    Be sure to include tactical skills, which may include more facility around software or mastering a crochet loop, as well as soft skills, such as improved listening skills, asking better questions, or advocating for yourself.
    What has the year taught you? As you reflect on last year, think about what else you learned about yourself.
    Did you discover a new interest? Did you realize you’re not doing the work you want to be doing? Did you realize you’re definitely in the right field but would like to contribute in a different way? Did you learn something new about taking care of yourself or your energy? Did you learn something new about the people around you and what they need or don’t need from you? When you think about yourself in the past year, what are you most proud of? Use these questions as prompts but don’t limit your reflection to just these questions. Keep exploring how the past year has informed you.
    One more question about the past year, which will segue right into imagining the year to come.
    What was missing for you in the past year?
    There may be many answers to this question so again, don’t limit yourself to one or two answers.
    Some common answers I’ve heard from my clients is hugs, good communication, in-person events, the ability to shop leisurely, and travel. Those seem to the be the glaring items that were missing last year.
    But I’ve also been hearing: alone time, space to sit quietly and think, structure and accountability.
    Thinking about what you’ve learn

    100% Jodi: Are We There Yet?

    100% Jodi: Are We There Yet?

    In this quick episode I’m going to be direct about what’s needed from you as a leader and a reminder of what you need to be doing for yourself.
    Hello, I’m Jodi Flynn and welcome to the Women Taking the Lead podcast. I’m an executive leadership coach, author, speaker, workshop facilitator and I have the joy to work with women leaders who want to hone the skills that will allow them to thrive in Senior Leadership. I know I’ve met a woman I would love to work with when we start having a few laughs about our tendencies toward perfectionism and people pleasing.
    I had been living in Maine for the past 18 years, but I am currently in Massachusetts staying with family for the next month, and then I make my final move to Virginia at the beginning on 2021. Thanks to the beauty of technology, I’ve been able to continue to work with women all over the world even in the midst of so much movement and transition.
    I do individual coaching as well as workshops and team retreats, and I am the current President of the board for The Maine Women's Conference.
    I spend my free time catching up with friends and family, coordinating my move to Virginia to create a life with my guy, working out and watching the Great British Baking Show.
    I saw a tweet a few weeks ago that said this week has been the longest month. Have you been feeling that way too?
    This year has brought a bag of tricks we weren’t anticipating.
    Add a contentious election right before the holidays and that’s the cherry on top.
    You may also be having that feeling you had when you were a child on a long car ride with your parents and you were dying to get out of the car. In frustration and agony, you couldn’t help it, you kept asking, “Are we there yet?”
    We are not there yet. A president has been announced and vaccines are being approved, but we are a long way from healing as a nation and as a globe.
    Though you are like feeling a bit tired and uncertain, this is a great time to be a leader.
    When times are uncertain and chaos is ensuing, that’s when people are looking to those who lead to help them navigate a path through.
    If you are a leader, and I’m assuming you are if you are listening to this podcast, those who look to you for guidance need you to bring your best self forward right now.
    It's a lot to ask of you, but there’s a lot at stake. It won’t help anyone if you are easily triggered and reactionary right now.
    I have lost count of the number of times I had to give myself a talking to over the last couple of weeks, telling myself, “don’t engage, don’t engage, it’s not worth it.”
    Have you found yourself digging deep recently to stay away from conflict?
    The number of messages I've received in recent weeks detailing a "crazy" post on social media and the sender's struggle to not respond or comment on it have been numerous.
    I've seen a few and have been triggered by them as well. I want to react and discharge the emotion.
    And then I remember I am a leader and I have a bigger mission at stake. A moment of unleashing my pent-up frustration cannot be taken back and could hurt my cause significantly.
    Thoughts like, "don't engage, it's not worth it", may not be of the highest virtue but they've saved me from acting rashly and I'm grateful for that.
    We're all feeling a little on edge lately. I’m hoping with the winter holidays here we all have an opportunity to unplug and step away from the fray for a little while.
    And you especially, as a leader, need to take time to take care of yourself.
    If you need to vent to a trusted friend, unplug from the news, delete your social media apps from your phone or take a nap in the middle of the day - do it! Doing something nice for someone else will also make you feel good.
    I’d love to hear what helps you to stay above the fray?
