    Session 292: Quiet Firing & Life After Layoffs

    Session 292: Quiet Firing & Life After Layoffs

    The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

    Within the last few months you might have seen or heard the term “quiet firing” circulating on your local news stations, LinkedIn profiles, or social media accounts. The term refers to a method used by employers to drive employees to quit on their own volition. To discuss quiet firing more at length, this week I’m joined by Dr. Ella F. Washington, an organizational psychologist, DEI expert, and Professor of Practice at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. In Part 1 of our conversation we discuss how to identify if quiet firing is happening in your workplace, the psychological effects of being quietly fired, and how biases and a lack of managerial training in the workplace impact how managers give critical feedback to employees. In Part 2 of our conversation we also hear the first hand testimony of TBG Community Member, Flo, who found herself out of work in the midst of the pandemic.

    There’s no better time than the start of the new year to get your financial house in order. Budgeting, retirement, emergency savings, and investing are all keywords we throw around when talking about money…but how can we apply them to our lives? Today I’m joined by Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche, America’s favorite personal financial educator and author of the New York Times Best Seller, Get Good with Money. Tiffany got candid about financial planning, gave us tips to prepare for a recession, and ten components of financial wholeness.

    Happy New Year y’all! It’s January and although a new year might not necessarily mean becoming a new you, it most definitely means new opportunities for you to do things to astound and impress yourself. We’re kicking off our year with our annual January Jumpstart mini-series.  All month long we’ll  be speaking with lauded and recognized women across industries about how you can activate the personal goals you might have been putting off for a while. 

    Today I’m joined by Jessica Nabongo, global citizen, master storyteller, and travel expert, who is the first black woman to have traveled to every country in the world. In our conversation Jessica spoke about assessing your travel style, how to dress to the nines while traveling, how to get the most out of travel credit cards, and her best selling book, The Catch Me If You Can: One Woman’s Journey to Every Country in the World.

    The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

    For many, the beginning of a new year can evoke feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. How do I start a new year on the right foot when I’m still so utterly exhausted from the previous year?  To assist us with centering ourselves for 2023, I’m thrilled to be joined again by Wellness Educator, Meditation Teacher, Reiki Healer, Author, and host of the Dropping Gems podcast, Devi Brown. During our conversation, we explore how to craft a schedule that allows for self-care practices, narrowing down your focus as you prepare for a new year,  and affirmations to recite to feel grounded and whole. Devi also leads us through a beautiful meditation to assist us in tapping into our power and who we are being called to be in the new year.

Episode 254 Women in the Workplace

Today was the first day I found and started listening to this podcast and it resonated with me so much as I moved out of Atlanta from college to a predominantly white area for my work. This episode gave me some really good insight I feel early on in my career that I can use moving forward. Thank you Dr. Harden Bradford and Dr. Thomas!

Informative and Entertaining

I didn’t know how much I needed this podcast. As a women in her 40’s living in Kansas it is hard finding Black spaces. This podcast gives me my own space. A space that is relatable. A space for Black Women. Thank you so much for creating a healing safe place
