    Hidden Leadership Gems with Dr. Gena C. Lovett | Ep 184

    Hidden Leadership Gems with Dr. Gena C. Lovett | Ep 184

    This week’s “How She Finds Purpose” insight comes from Dr Gena C Lovett. She says -
    When I discovered the power of my village, the load was shared.
    “I would ask myself, what is it that I really like doing? What do I like doing? Not so much a worry of, am I good at it, because it's my belief that if you really like something, if you're really passionate about it, you accomplish that, you find a way to do it. And then the other thing, and they've been very helpful for me, is my village. Who is her village? You'd be surprised, and I was that person for many years that had just myself. When I discovered the power of my village, the load was shared. Because let's face it, a lot of times at work, you know, we're doing well. It helps to have that village around you to understand, you know, and keep you grounded, to someone to have your back, someone to tell you the truth. I cannot stress enough the importance of that.”
    Dr. Gena C Lovett, PhD is a speaker, executive consultant, and author of the book C Suite Quotient, The 8 C Suite Behaviors That Propel a Leadership Culture.
    Gena is a C Suite strategist who empowers executives to unlock their full leadership potential and she has over 25 years in the corporate world. She has led manufacturing operations at the Boeing Company, worked in leadership positions as a Global Chief Diversity Officer at Alcoa and has had key roles at Ford.
    Gena has done so many amazing things. And if all that was not enough, she started her own company, Hidden Gems Consulting.
    Gena also serves as a trustee on the Board for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum which she says indulges her love of music and meaningful community service impact.
    In this episode we discussed:
    her 25+ year career with iconic companies like Alcoa and Boeing how she enjoys finding hidden gems in the workplace how important she finds it to always address the culture of a corporate workplace

    Global Insights and Feminine Leadership with Pamela Thompson | Ep 183

    This week’s “How She Finds Purpose” insight comes from Pamela Thompson. She says:
    What I know to be true, as women, it's very important that we support one another.
    “Doing more than being and giving more than receiving, and often feeling that you can't reach out for help. And to the women, I would say that it's not a sign of weakness to reach out for support. Because I don't know about you, but the way I was raised, it was like I was meant to feel, it could have been inadvertently, that if you reached out, it was a sign of weakness. Whereas, what I know to be true, as women, it's very important that we support one another.”
    Pamela Thompson is the founder of Female Wave of Change Canada, which is a national member based nonprofit and she believes that feminine leadership holds the key to creating a better world.
    She's also the author of two best selling books, Learning to Dance with Life, A Guide for High Achieving Women and The Exploits of Minerva, Reflections of a 60 Something Woman, and is currently working on her third.

Treasured programing for leading women!

Dr. Robin's podcast has become my "go-to" resource when I feel "walled in," under pressure, or "insufficient." Why? Because the answers are ALWAYS in her carefully curated content. Episode after episode, Dr. Robin and her incredible (credible and accessible) guests delve deep into sustainable strategies that will bring more JOY, INSPIRATION, and INTENTION into your leadership and your life. I find myself scribbling down notes and quote of key takeaways that will spice up my professional mindset. This is unique, entertaining, and treasured programing for leading women in an ocean of resources. Check it out!
