    Leadership Lesson: Building Trust in the Work Place & the Importance of Relational Capital

    Leadership Lesson: Building Trust in the Work Place & the Importance of Relational Capital

    Today we're kicking off season 4! In today's conversation we dive into what is trust, how to build trust, the difference between practical trust & emotional trust, what trust in the work place looks like and how to rebuild trust when trust is lost. We also dip our toe in exploring what relational capital is and how it might just be the thing that gets your through those tougher messy middle transitions. Relational capital is all about connectedness and when we aren't thriving, connectedness is for sure a core need.

    Part 2: Building Culture - Why Investing In & Building People is the Key to Shifting Culture in Real Time... Ps. Leaders - Emotional Labor is Part of the Job!

    Part 2: Building Culture - Why Investing In & Building People is the Key to Shifting Culture in Real Time... Ps. Leaders - Emotional Labor is Part of the Job!

    Episode 78 is Part 2 of my building culture mini series. In today's conversation I'm diving into why investing in & building people is the key to shifting culture in real time. But with building people comes a lot of emotional labor. In the book Radical Candor, they talk about how “Emotional labor is not just part of the job; it’s the key to being a good boss” and so we're diving into why this matters!

    I share insight into why it so important for people to be able to bring their whole selves to work. We discuss why building the whole person matters and how we as leaders have an opportunity to get to know our teams on a new level. We talk about learning our employees key motivators (Check out the Motivation Code by Todd Henry!) and how learning what each person needs to avoid boredom & burnout is so key to building an engaged team. To wrap up, we chat how as the leader you are really more of the editor than the author! 

    Something peak your interest, come learn along with us!

    Part 1: Building Culture - What’s Working, What Isn’t & Why I Believe Middle Management is the Secret to Radical Change & Making the Shift to a ‘People First’ Approach

    Part 1: Building Culture - What’s Working, What Isn’t & Why I Believe Middle Management is the Secret to Radical Change & Making the Shift to a ‘People First’ Approach

    Episode 77 is Part 1 of a 2-part Episode on Building Culture. If you aren't familiar with my story, I spent 15 years working in Entertainment Industry in a completely toxic work culture. After hitting my own personal rock bottom, I started over in the financial tech industry. I went from independent contributor to people leader all while going through a certification program to become a life coach. I have found my life coaching skills to be completely transferrable to my new position as a people leader and I'm sharing my thoughts & insight behind how I believe millennial leaders can shift the paradigm in front of us.

    In today's conversation I share my personal experiences with what I see working, what I see NOT working, and why I truly believe middle managers are uniquely positioned to create change and lead the corporate shift to a 'people first' approach.

    In our next episode we'll dive more into why I think people first matters and the realities that come with the emotional labor of being a strong people leader.

    Growing our Relationship with Money, The Power of Choice & Living in the Gray Space with Sydney Fletcher

    Growing our Relationship with Money, The Power of Choice & Living in the Gray Space with Sydney Fletcher

    In Episode 76, Sydney shares her personal story from ticking the box as a 'successful' corporate Graphic Designer to hitting rock bottom, to rebuilding during the pandemic  and stepping into & owning her identity as her most aligned self as a Life Coach & Yoga Instructor. While we truly hit on so many powerful lessons some of my favorites were how Sydney shifts the idea of 'positive thinking' to 'perspective', how awareness around binary thinking can help us move through stress & overwhelm, how to grow our relationship with money, the power of choice & what happens when we choose to live in the gray space. This is one of those episodes I've shared a nugget of wisdom from every chance I've had since it was recorded and I can't wait to hear your takeways!

    Permission to be Human: My Journey to Healing my Inner People Pleaser

    Permission to be Human: My Journey to Healing my Inner People Pleaser

    In Episode 75, I'm sharing my journey to healing my inner people pleaser & inviting you to come along for the ride. 

    "So if you're looking for permission to do something differently, seeking permission to try something new - consider this your sign from the universe. Permission Granted."

    But I'll let you in on a little secret... you don't need my permission - you only need your own!

    From the blog: 
    "People pleasing… something I've been asked countless times to cover on the podcast and yet the timing never felt quite right. It's a conversation that has surfaced in many of my circles, under many different circumstances and yet because it wasn't front & center in my world - I wasn't sure what value I could add to conversation in that space. 
    And then I started to notice a recurring theme in many of my 1:1 client sessions - from setting goals to ‘ditch the inner people pleaser’ to committing to action steps where ‘no’ is actually a full sentence, it seemed like the desire to heal this wound was surfacing at every corner. I was hearing it from peers, coworkers, executives in the hallway. It came up on nearly every coffee date with a friend. The message was loud and clear - millennials are done with people pleasing… 
    And so I started to note the similar sentiments, observe the associated feelings, and to describe the environments in which these thoughts surfaced in my journal. And that was where I realized it was connected to this craving… this desire… for permission to come from an external source.  
    It wasn't all that long ago that I found myself in a similar place in life seeking external permission to make any change even when deep down I could feel what was aligned & right. 

    So - WHAT CHANGED?  
    I stopped WAITING for permission and started to GIVE myself permission to do the things that felt right to me, even if it went against the grain."

Everything You Wish You’d Learn before Adulting ....

Let’s face it - growing up in the technology boom meant that we learned a LOT from the internet, but not always how to “adult”. I’ve personally come to find that there are 2 types of people: 1) Those who struggle to keep their head afloat, and don’t have a moment to even stop and think about why that is, and 2) Those who struggle to keep their head afloat, but are aware and working towards taking steps away from that. If you’re reading this, you likely fall into that second category, and if so - this podcast is for you! Alyson and her guests all bring unique ideas and thoughts to help you continue on in your season of growth, and moving away from that overwhelm. It’s a can’t miss podcast for millennials!
