    Managing Up for Career Success

    Managing Up for Career Success

    Managing Up for Career Success
    Have you ever worked in a truly terrible environment? Think back to that job now. What made it so bad? 
    If you’re like most people, the difference between a great job and a horrible job doesn’t have all that much to do with the work itself. Instead, it usually comes down to your relationships with your coworkers — and especially your relationship with your boss. 
    Having a positive, healthy relationship with your boss, based on genuine trust and respect, makes your working life so much easier, and ultimately helps you both reach your career goals. 
    So how can you build that kind of relationship? And how can you repair your relationship with your boss if it’s not off to a great start? 
    On today's episode, we are talking about “managing up,” a professional development strategy that will help you build better working relationships, find more satisfaction on the job and remove the trickiest obstacles between you and your ultimate career goals. 
    In this episode, we discuss…
    [00:58] What Is Managing Up?
    [14:19] What Managing Up Is Not
    [24:15] Why Managing Up Matters
    [34:53] How to Manage Up at Work 
    My guest is Dr. Lisa S., PhD, LPC, CCC. She is a career coach and counselor at Growing Self, as well as the past president of both the National Career Development Association and the Colorado Career Development Association. Today, she shares her insight and wisdom with you. 
    I hope you’ll join the “Doctors Lisa” for this lively and useful conversation about building an empowered, satisfying career by learning how to manage up.

    Feeling Sexually Rejected By Your Partner? Here’s What to Do…

    Feeling Sexually Rejected By Your Partner? Here’s What to Do…

    No matter how secure your relationship is otherwise, it hurts when you feel sexually rejected by your partner. That’s because sexuality is vulnerable and often bound up with our feelings of love, and worthiness — particularly if one of your top love languages is physical touch.
     
    Every long-term relationship involves some ebbs and flows in sexual desire, but how you manage those fluctuations matters — especially if you're feeling hurt, or resentful. To help you approach these conversations with vulnerability, empathy, courage, and grace, I’ve invited my colleague Dori B. to join me on this podcast episode. 
     
    Dori is a certified sex therapist and couples counselor here at Growing Self, and she’s helped countless couples navigate differences in sexual desire, while building even better relationships in the process. Today, she’s sharing her wisdom and guidance with you. 
     
    I hope you’ll join us for her warm, actionable advice about handling hurt feelings related to sex, and getting back in synch with your partner.

    Is Jealousy Healthy in a Relationship?

    Is Jealousy Healthy in a Relationship?

    People often wonder, “Is jealousy healthy in a relationship?” 
    Here’s the short answer: It depends. Jealousy can be healthy when it signals that it’s time to draw your partner close in response to a real or imagined threat. This is a good thing that helps preserve and strengthen your relationship — but only if you’re able to handle jealousy in a self-aware, intentional way.
    When jealousy gets out of control (particularly if it’s due to past relational trauma, rather than a current relational threat), it can be a destructive force that harms your relationship, your partner, and you. 
    In this episode, we’re talking about jealousy’s ancient roots, when it’s healthy and when it’s a problem, and how you can use feelings of jealousy to start important conversations, establish healthy boundaries, and strengthen your relationship. 
    Tune in for a discussion about:
    [03:23] What is Romantic Jealousy?
    [09:49] What Causes Jealousy in a Relationship?
    [17:49] When Jealousy is Healthy 
    [23:56] What to Do When You’re Feeling Jealous
    [41:56] When Jealousy Turns Abusive
    [46:01] Learning from Your Jealousy
    And more!

    The Power of Believing In Yourself

    The Power of Believing In Yourself

    “Believe in yourself” is more than a soundbite. It’s a necessary ingredient in a happy, self-directed life. 
    It’s also easier said than done. If you (like basically everyone) have internal narratives about the things you can’t do or changes you can’t make, you’re going to need more than a pep talk or some positive affirmations to shake those narratives loose. You’re going to need a self-belief-building plan. 
    On this episode of the podcast, we’re discussing how to believe in yourself, and the real steps you can take to build self-confidence, self-efficacy, and self-esteem, so you can start living life by your own design.
    Our guest is Elise R., M.Ed., NCC, CCC, LPCC. Elise is a therapist, life coach, and “holistic life design” expert here at Growing Self. After helping countless people build their self-belief and reach their most ambitious goals, she’s sharing her sage wisdom and actionable advice with you. 
    We are discussing:
    - Self-efficacy
    - Shifting internally
    - Raising kids that believe in themselves
    - Mastering experiences
    - Building an empowered career
    - and more! 
    I hope you enjoy this episode and find the power of believing in yourself! You deserve it. 
    With love,

    Shifting From Emotional To Intuitive Eating

    Shifting From Emotional To Intuitive Eating

    Eating is one of the most basic ways we care for ourselves every day. But having an unhealthy relationship with food can leave you feeling stressed, emotionally drained, and bad about yourself, rather than nourished, energized and empowered. 
     
    Unfortunately, many of us have a fraught relationship with food. Emotional eating, shame, and anxiety around food or body image, and negative cultural messages about what we “should” be doing or how we “should” look, can get in the way of mindful, compassionate, and self-aware eating practices. 
     
    Intuitive eating is all about listening to yourself, trusting yourself, and having a positive relationship with the food that nourishes your body and brings you pleasure. 
     
    Today we're talking about how to shift from emotional to intuitive eating with an intuitive eating counselor who’s sharing some radical wisdom for making peace with food and your body. Tune in to learn all about: 
     
    [03:53] Emotional eating
     
    [07:32] Unhealthy relationships with food
     
    [17:06] Changing your relationship with food
     
    [23:29] Adopting healthier coping mechanisms
     
    And much more.  
     
    With love,
