    The Heroine’s Journey - Death, Loss and Letting Go

    The Heroine’s Journey - Death, Loss and Letting Go

    Welcome to episode 6 of Season 4 of The Women’s Leadership Podcast: The Heroine’s Journey - Death, Loss and Letting Go.

    This phase of our journey marks the final realization that what came before cannot hold. The illusion is broken, and we can never go back.

    Death, Loss and Letting Go signifies a transformational point in The Heroine’s Journey. It’s time to take grief work very seriously.

    When we reach this phase, we must completely process the loss of comfort and illusion.

    Make the choice to not stuff or numb your feelings. Give yourself permission to feel it all.

    Make the choice to progress. Step forward in faith.

    Make the choice to accept the unknown. New opportunities really are coming.

Outstanding

I’ve been following ECM’s Resistance Live for 3 1/2 years. Her advice, analysis, and frankness has kept me riveted to her every word on RL, as well as twitter. Now I will be adding Flip Out w ECM. Thank you, Elizabeth, for everything you do to keep us informed and educated . I’m so appreciative.

A first for me!

I love to learn about leadership. I have spent hours 2019 focused on self growth. This is the first Female leadership podcast I was tempered to listen too.

Honest, it’s amazing. I look forward to starting my day listening to it. A lot of insight that I didn’t even know I needed.

The Real Stuff

Elizabeth does not offer tired platitudes and cosmetic pitches that indirectly condescend to women and rob them of power. Instead, she goes deep to acknowledge our anger and hidden struggles, build our awareness, connect with our true power, and embolden us to navigate landscapes that are more challenging for women. Thank you, Elizabeth.
