    Handling Negative Feedback Like A Pro

    Handling Negative Feedback Like A Pro

    Even the most confident of female leaders can struggle to deal with negative or critical feedback.  When we are working really hard and doing our best such feedback can at best be demotivating and at worst really knock our confidence.  Many of us also let the words (and the stories we tell ourselves about those words) whirr around in our head for hours, if not days.
    But it is possible to hear negative feedback without it sending you into a spiral of self-doubt.  In this episode I’m going to share some ways you can become more resilient in the face of negative feedback, how to deal with it in the moment and how to let go of it after it has happened.

    How Successful Leaders Think

    How Successful Leaders Think

    I’m going to come right out and say it - mindset is the secret superpower of successful leaders.  Too many leadership books and books focus on the strategies and tactics of leadership without ever addressing the fact that you can have all the strategies in the world but if you don’t have the right mindset you’ll never be able to action them effectively.
    In this episode I am going to share with you how those successful leaders think differently so you too can improve every meeting you attend and make more impact at work.

Clear and succinct advice on all facets of leadership

I have enjoyed Carla’s podcasts tremendously as they offer such practical and tangible advice to harness the very best out of your team, organisation and most importantly yourself. In just a short space of time, what I’ve learned from Carla has greatly increased my self esteem and ability to ‘show up’ for my role. Her podcasts will be a staple in my professional development as long as she continues to share. Thank you Carla!

Superb podcast

Great easy-to-implement tips to help people advance their careers, businesses and working relationships. Particularly enjoyed the concise introduction to how successful leaders think. It was a great reminder of what to consider when leading a team. The podcasts are a good length and allow you take few moments to reflect.

Bite sized inspiration

I really enjoyed listening to these and so many of the themes resonated with challenges I have faced or am facing. They are long enough to gain practical tips and take aways but short enough to fit into a busy working week! A great hit of bite-sized inspiration!
