Her Executive Presence is a podcast, newsletter, and community for women who want to increase their executive presence. Executive presence is your personal leadership brand, and is critical to your success in a dynamic competitive corporate world. It embodies your holistic leadership presence. Each week, I identify and dissect what it takes to own your seat at the table and L.E.A.D (Learn, Experience, Apply, and Develop) from your authentic narrative through the journeys of female executives, successful entrepreneurs, and thought-leaders.

As women it is not breaking through the "glass ceiling" that shatters our confidence and erodes our self-esteem; it is the shards of glass (fear, anxiety, negative self-talk, anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome) orchestrated by the fierce inner critic that cuts deep and threatens our sanity. It is time for a SHIFT a Leadhershift. It is time to SHIFT the way we think about ourselves as women, wives, mothers, sisters, girlfriends and how we develop and lead. There are five core elements to the S.H.I.F.T Factor (Self-Discovery, Humility, Intentionality, Focus, and Tenacity).

Join Dr. Deena as she delivers real talk, real solutions, and authentic conversations about what it takes to make the SHIFT to gain Clarity, build Confidence, and remain Consistent on your journey to the BOLDEST VERSION OF YOU.

    The Myth of Perfection

    The Myth of Perfection

    “There is no perfection, only beautiful versions of brokenness.”― Shannon L. Alder
    Perfection is a matter of perspective. In this episode I share how one comment "you show up to perfect" sent me on a deeper self-discovery on my perception of who I AM not based on what others see but rooted in what I know. 
    What myth's about perfection do you currently hold?
     
    This season of Walking Through Glass is all about quieting the inner critic “heffa” that stops you from living your best life. If you want to quiet those negative voices and remove your limited beliefs you have to have some tough conversations with yourself. Those conversations are going to take courage and confidence. Don’t worry, I got your back. This season is all about building confidence, maintaining courage even in tough situations, and owning your I AM story.

    Hello Heffa, Goodbye

    Hello Heffa, Goodbye

    You cannot rise above the image you have for yourself.  Your image is controlled by a mental blueprint we have inside our subconscious mind, and it dictates WHERE we think we belong. I call my subconscious voice “Heffa”, do you have a name for yours?
    The Heffa has saved me from making a few horrible decision, like not going on a 2nd date with the creep who wanted to date my breast not me. But she has also interfered with me pursuing my dreams; She whispers things like “ WHO do you think you are?” “ARE you sure you can do that by yourself?” oh, the best one yet is “Remember the last time you tried that and failed.” She doesn’t stop. She is always talking to me so I had learned to TALK BACK to HER. What I did was make the unconscious conscious and fight HEFFA on my territory; the conscious now.
    Have I always done things right  — NO — will I spend the rest of my life ruminating about things I cannot change - NO - Can I script a new narrative aligned to WHO I AM NOW — absolutely!
    Owning your I AM story is the key to creating a positive self- image.
    We are all on the same journey although we may take different paths. I have some questions  Where are you now? Think about what is working for you and what isn’t .. what is pleasing, what is frustrating .. different areas of your life .. where can you grow .. where are you doing well .. are you doing your best .. what’s your biggest challenge right now .. what’s your biggest asset right now?
    Think about all the reasons for your successes and failures. Where are you stuck .. why are you stuck? Where did you win .. why did you win? Where are you stagnating .. why are you stagnating? Where you happy .. why are you happy? Where are you hurting .. why are you hurting? Where do you have hope .. why do you have hope? Where do you feel hopeless .. why do you feel hopeless?
    This season of Walking Through Glass is all about quieting the inner critic “heffa” that stops you from living your best life. If you want to quiet those negative voices and remove your limited beliefs you have to have some tough conversations with yourself. Those conversations are going to take courage and confidence. Don’t worry, I got your back. This season is all about building confidence, maintaining courage even in tough situations, and owning your I AM story.
    I would like to leave you with a golden nugget to help you finish 2020 strong. Spend some time learning WHO YOU REALLY ARE and unlearn who “they” told you to be or what your circumstances and situations made you believe about yourself. Make the unconscious conscious by having a real conversation with your fears, question your emotions, and interview your feelings. Find time to get quiet this week and love on yourself. Write down ONE thing today that you love about YOU … the real you. I believe in you and challenge you to HOLD YOUR IMAGE.

    Conscious Conversation with Marisa Bailey-Clements

    Conscious Conversation with Marisa Bailey-Clements

    "When I think of walking through glass is not necessarily like busting through glass. It's really walking with who you are, to the core of your being, it's when I think of walking through glass it's almost like walking with yourself in that mirror sense so the glass for me is a mirror, and it can change daily really when you're walking through glass when you're walking next to glass but really when it comes down to it for me is I envision dirty dusty glass that you've cleaned off, and when I really get that glass clean even if it is just in one spot of an area and I take a step back and I look at it I could see my reflection. So it's really standing with that reflection of myself and seeing what is on the other side of that glass, and knowing that that's where I want to get to. And while that glass may seem like a barrier. It's something that I need to learn to walk with to get through to the other side of who I really am." Marisa Bailey

    Race, Class, and Sisterhood: Fact Check Your Focus Points as an Anti-Racist with Natalie Newport

    Race, Class, and Sisterhood: Fact Check Your Focus Points as an Anti-Racist with Natalie Newport

    "try your best to find find three sources, find three sources to get your news and I know that's difficult to do it every single day but I would try and I would try to find a source that is one opinion a source that has another opinion and a source that's just straight down the middle ... I think, a great way to become aware about social issues like racial injustice is that you become more aware."

    Meet Natalie
    I’m Natalie Newport, and I’m a 29-year-old white woman who still needs to figure my sh!t out. I don’t just mean doing my taxes without the assistance of TurboTax – I mean holding myself and others accountable to learning more about our white/straight/cis/thin privilege and being an intersectional feminist. I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, so you can’t convince me that our country hasn’t been ignoring racial inequality for generations. Currently, I live in Pittsburgh and I moved for my career at the time - working in news. I started in local news Tulsa and moved to national news. I’ve been in the middle of protests before and after Trump was elected. If I can help give voices those who are marginalized/disenfranchised, then I should. Period. That’s my goal in life.

    Conscious Conversation: Mindset, Mental Health, and Total Wellness with Te'retta Hall.

    Conscious Conversation: Mindset, Mental Health, and Total Wellness with Te'retta Hall.

    "I know I can get in my own way, with doubting the work that God called me to do you know doubting that he called me to do it, doubting that I am capable of doing those things and really standing firm on that word that says, you know, those that are called. Also, equipped. And you know it's a lot easier said than done, but I feel that sometimes, I can be my own glass, and that I'm second guessing you know myself second guessing my abilities, and also procrastinating, you know, that's me myself being the glass procrastinating not prioritizing and putting forth the putting time constraints or time restraints around those different things that I'm assigned to or the different obligations that I have. So I would say that more so than anything else. I can be my own glass and I'm probably my piece of glass." Te'retta Hall.
