    How Are You Perceived?

    How Are You Perceived?

    After two years of isolation, this episode could not be more timely.

    Your host, Donna Peters, interviews Eduardo Garcia, Partner and first-generation to the US. Eduardo is an avid Me-Suite listener and nudged us to focus on two topics that needed more attention: stakeholder management and flexibility. Eduardo shares how we cannot rely on our work alone to speak for itself. We must do the work to understand how we are perceived by others. What is our personal brand? And how does knowing our personal brand help us meet stakeholder needs and build relationships through empathy and flexibility? Some notable quotables include:
    everyone has a story we can learn from--invest the time to learn others' storiesassume positive intention whenever you face frictionwhen things are done differently by someone else, there's a reason why, so listen and learnEduardo's core values are be provocative, be curious, be tenacious, and stewardship.

    1) the role leaders play in helping others succeed (inside and outside of the company)
    2) the active role we can each play in shaping the future we want to have (inside and outside of the company)

    So many powerful stories are packed into this discussion, including:
    leaders create a safe harbor for employees to have conversations about their next career moveleaders take a personal approach to talent, not a transactional approachleaders help people see the whole field of options for their future (and sometimes help others see opportunities they don't see in themselves)leaders provide honesty to help others be successfulChris's Core Values are: respect (with appreciation); loyalty (with support); creativity (with action); courage (with thoughtfulness)

    Your Why, Your Wealth, Your Win

    Your Why, Your Wealth, Your Win

    Your host, Donna Peters, interviews Tiffany Kent, CEO of Wealth Engagement. Tiffany shares her powerful, vulnerable story of how growing up without money drove her to the high-pressure environment of Harvard MBA and the world of investment banking. She learned to role-model aggressive behavior, to do what it took to win while managing a marriage and three children. The stress and volatility led her to a crisis moment at 40. She needed a new way of life. Through the serendipity of a parent seminar at her daughter's school, Tiffany came to know her why and launched her financial advisory business focused on wealth creation for women. And men, listen up, as you have an important role to play in this wealth equation.

    It's truly amazing how many a-ha moments are packed into this 30 minutes including:
    how childhood experiences shape our relationship with moneythe cleansing power of admitting you've failedfinding your why around 40the role of partners, friends, and mentors in figuring out your next big moveTiffany's core values are purpose, empathy, and integrity.
