    Leadership is an Exchange of Energy with Michele Thomson

    Leadership is an Exchange of Energy with Michele Thomson

    You might notice a trend in our topics in the early part of this season because cultivating leadership qualities and skills are fundamental to our career and life success. Whether we’re leading a company, division, team, family, or ourselves, developing those hard and soft skills is essential.

    So, today we’ll unwind the narrative that leadership is difficult and pull back the curtain to reveal what it takes to be an exceptional leader.

    My guest is Michele Thomson, a registered nurse turned leadership development coach and consultant. Michele helps organizations and their leaders prioritize their people, curate a culture of trust and belonging, and improve their customer experience, thus creating a workplace that people never want to leave.

    Now, that sounds like an inviting culture that most of my clients would jump to join.

    Playing the Corporate Game with Rochelle Janssens

    Playing the Corporate Game with Rochelle Janssens

    In this episode, we’ll dig into how women can play the corporate game better, leverage our natural abilities and strengths, and use them to our advantage. Plus, we’ll get my guest’s perspective on leadership, and how women have levers they may not pull.

    My guest is Rochelle Janssens from Brisbane, Australia. Rochelle works with quietly determined career women ready to move into their first or next leadership role so they can make a bigger difference in the corporate game.

    Becoming a leader as a woman is often a different journey than for men, and Rochelle believes it helps to know the current rules of the game, so we can use them to our advantage and eventually be in a position to change the practices to benefit everyone.

    Her experience has taught her that leadership is about who you are being, not what you are doing, so she works with her clients to become a leader from the inside out. As a result, rather than being overworked and overwhelmed, her clients shine as their best selves, attracting the right people and opportunities without the crazy hours and elevated stress levels.

    If you enjoy this episode and our discussion about playing the corporate game, please give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available. And subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss any insightful conversations.

    Reclaim Your Identity by Starting Over with Avery Thatcher

    Reclaim Your Identity by Starting Over with Avery Thatcher

    Do you attach who you are to what you do for a living? When I was laid off from my last corporate gig, I didn’t know who I was for a while because I was no longer a team leader.

    Sometimes we need to start over and reinvent ourselves. And many women ask, “who am I now that things have changed?” So, I invited my guest to share her story with you.

    Avery Thatcher is CEO and founder of the Inner Stillness Outer Chaos Podcast and the Flow State Membership. When she started her career as a Registered Nurse working in ICU, she noticed that many patients were there because of illnesses and diseases linked to chronic stress.

    Starting over, she got out of the reactive side of medicine and started helping highly sensitive high achievers prevent burnout and reverse the adverse health effects of stress. After experiencing a significant health challenge in 2018, Avery had to learn to redefine her identity and grieve the loss of who she used to be.

    I thought hearing this story of starting over alongside her tips might help some of you.

    Do you ever find decisions challenging to make? Maybe you second-guess yourself and get stuck in decision paralysis. You’re not alone. It can happen to the best of us at any given moment, so I thought it would be a great topic to kick off the new season and the new year.

    Redefine Success & Take Back Your Life with Laura Rubin (Reprise)

    Redefine Success & Take Back Your Life with Laura Rubin (Reprise)

    What does success look like to you? Are you frantically running like a hamster? Are you living on autopilot to get through the day? Or, maybe you’re wearing the overwork, overwhelm, and burnout as a badge of honor?

    Perhaps it’s time we redefine success.

    Laura Rubin is a reformed hustle bunny, joy seeker, and lover of life. But, after years of riding the hustle train, she made the courageous decision to take back her life.

    Her journey has taken her from living by default to living by design. She now encourages, empowers, and inspires other battle-weary corporate and entrepreneurial hustlers to unwind from the grind of overwork and burnout. She gives them permission to free themselves from society’s definition of success, forget the hustle, and start living in ease, grace, and flow.

    I’ll bet you know many people who want to know that secret. And my guest and I will pull back the curtain for you.
