Listen to this episode to hear how to lead with value, how to drown out the noise around you, find clarity in what you truly want, and how to give yourself permission to show up—and fumble.
Show up authentically
We start off the episode discussing the most important first step to leading with value—working on yourself first so you can show up authentically in your own core values. Kareen discusses how she had to go through her own self journey and see how she was overexerting herself and putting others needs first before she finally chose to take time for herself. She committed to her own self-improvement so that she could truly help others with their own.
Getting in touch with your core values
She discusses the first thing most people skip when trying to lead—clarity. When it comes to clarity being surrounded by so much noise we experience daily, it can be overwhelming to decipher what you actually want—and not just what your peers influence you to think you want.
Letting go of what no longer serves you, to make space for what does
Your business is 100% reflection of how you lead it, and Kareen shares the three things that can help you figure out your core values and lead in a way that portrays them. We discuss the freedom of change, how to identify when to end something that no longer serves you, and how to leverage your self-development to make the impact you want. Kareen talks about her own experience in mastering herself and leadership, her core values, and how the quickest way to grow your business is to grow yourself.
