    112 | Mindset 101: Why you have so many negative thoughts + how to tame them (you are not broken)

    Are you self-critical?  If so, this episode is for you.  Your brain, when left unchecked, can make you feel awful and convince you that you’re the worst person ever.  This can feel insanely crappy but the good news is, you’re not broken the way your brain says you are, and you have the power to change what you think and how you feel.  And when you do this – you will start showing up with SO much more confidence at work.  Tune in to learn how and let me know what you think!

    111 | Working through fear and old patterns, finding the courage to speak up, burnout + more with Brenda Baird

    On today's episode we have special guest Brenda Baird (Executive Leadership Coach) on to discuss fear in the workplace. In particular, where it stems from, how it can affect us at work, and what you can do to overcome it. She also talks about what makes a good leader, dealing with burnout, and how to be more self reflective in general. Learning how to dig deeper in our self reflection process and challenging the patterns we uncover is vital in continuing to grow, being a better leader, and feeling more comfortable and confident in your voice and yourself!

    109 | Relearning to trust yourself, being an empath, micromanagers, joy, relaxation + more with Rayla Bailey

    Welcome to the show!  Today is my favorite kind of interview: long, honest, winding, and a little bit of an escape from the real world.  I had so much fun chatting with executive coach, Rayla Bailey, on what it means not only to lead with confidence, but to create joy and fulfillment in one’s life.
     
    We cover so much in this episode – some things you’ll hear us talk about are:
     
    -Mindset
    -Being a private/sensitive person
    -Building trust with yourself
    -Leading
    -Separating from the need for external validation
    -Chasing joy and playfulness
    -The importance of rest
    -The pressure to change your physical appearance at work
     
    Rayla was a delight to have on the show, and if you’re wanting to learn more about her, you can check out her website at: https://www.raylabailey.com/

    108 | Becoming the strongest most confident version of you - no matter your struggles

    108 | Becoming the strongest most confident version of you - no matter your struggles

    Welcome to another solo episode!  Today, I’m talking about how you can take control of your professional trajectory & pave the way for a career path that is truly remarkable.
     
    I think that women in the corporate & professional world deserve best-in-class career development advice.  That’s really what was missing for me in my career, and was why I started this show.
     
    As women – we need career guidance that is truly inspirational and allows us to tap into the strongest, most powerful version of ourselves.  And that is exactly what this episode is designed to do.
     
    Listen in and I’ll guide you through a way of thinking that will make 2021 (or any year!) the year you show up DIFFERENTLY.
     
    Because when you show up differently, the world responds differently.
     
    And that is when things REALLY start to take off.
     
    I can’t wait for you to listen in. 
     
    If you’re interested in applying for 1:1 coaching, you can find everything you need at my new website: https://jessguzikcoaching.com/
     
     
    And if you have any questions or just want to say hi, you can DM me on Instagram (@theartofspeakingup) or email me at jessica@theartofspeakingup.com.
     
    Catch you soon,
     
    -Jess

Empowering and powerful

This podcast is the perfect antidote for a day when you need to pump yourself up to edit your resume or get encouraged when you’re downtrodden by the amount of mansplaining in your life. It’s abundantly clear how much Jessica cares about empowering women in the workplace and you can feel that energy and passion in every episode!

Thank you, Jessica!

The Art of Speaking Up brims with insight about navigating workplaces and the roads we create in our minds.

Jessica gives practical guidance on challenges that may feel difficult to define and therefore difficult to overcome. I admire Jessica’s intuitive and methodical approach. Jessica meets me where I am and shows me, step by step, how to acknowledge the self-doubt and shakiness that I am going through and how to move through these mental patterns and create new, more positive and affirming mental pathways so that I can focus on creating, building relationships, and stepping forward.
