    About Brooke Dukes
    Brooke’s high-paced career in corporate reached a crossroads during her second pregnancy. Eight months pregnant and on bed rest, her boss gave her an ultimatum– fly 8 hours on an international flight to close a $500M deal or lose the entire commission she’d worked for months to earn. She closed the deal but went into labor on the return flight, 30,000 feet above ground on a plane full of men. Thankfully, the emergency response team that met them when they landed were able to stop the labor, ensuring she and her daughter, Ryann, were both healthy.

    Endangering her unborn child for the sake of a commission became the wake-up call she needed to redefine her life and to start helping other women redefine theirs. From that point forward, Brooke has used her corporate background and her expertise in human behavior transformation to empower women to take back control of their lives, to align their career paths with their true values, and to realize that happiness leads to success–not the other way around.

    BAM! Pivot to Purpose with Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    BAM! Pivot to Purpose with Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    Unexpected traumatic events can alter the course of our future. It's up to us to make decisions on the path that we're about to take and move forward. On today's episode, I am sharing my personal personal story about seizing the moment, understanding that unexpected things happen, and it's what we do next as leaders that matters most.

    In 2008, I suffered a traumatic brain injury. My life was forever changed and I have come to appreciate the smallest acts of kindness. It is why I believe we need to make every moment count. 

    Key Takeaways:
    As leaders, we have a choice. When faced with a challenge we can rise above it or let it consume us.  I hope that you will feel inspired to know that rising above is within your reach.

    Finding Purpose:I found that when we are at the lowest point from an unexpected circumstance there is only upward momentum.  Volunteer, find a cause that lights you up and take on experiential leadership roles. 

    The Power of a Strong Community: I discovered through my leadership journey with the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association how vital surrounding ourselves with the right people, who level us up to be our best selves matters.  

    Stepping into Leadership: “Do something that scares you every day”- Eleanor Roosevelt. Joining the HBA board and becoming President was a big leap forward. I learned by doing, and found lifelong friends.  The journey is hard enough, don’t go it alone. Find leaders you admire and connect with them.  You will be surprised and delighted by the outcome.

    Lessons from the Journey
    When life throws unexpected challenges our way, we can find the strength to pivot and embrace change. I would not have been able to rise to leadership, succeed in my career without having the right people around me. There is power in external advisors and sponsors. Surrounding yourself with supportive people can make all the difference. In my rise to leadership, the secret to real success is it takes hard work.  You have to tap into your brave, embrace resilience, be persistent and find the courage to take on new roles, even when you're not sure you're ready.

    "Only you can summon the courage to take a step forward to leadership. It is your courage that will empower you to persist when you are faced with a challenge.”-Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    "When you are faced with a choice, listen to the messages your heart is telling you, open yourself up to the possibilities, and embrace all that you are meant to be.”-Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    “The key to taking a new leadership role is to roll up your sleeves and put in the work. If you've been waiting for the right moment, I'm here to tell you there is no perfect moment- just do it." -Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    "One of the most important things we can do as a leader is to express gratitude. Be thankful to friends and colleagues and your team. Let them know they matter." -Natalie Benamou, Founder, HerCsuite®

    A Message of Hope
    This personal story proves that even in the face of adversity, we can shape our future. By embracing unexpected change and staying resilient, we can overcome obstacles and make a difference. 

    Feeling inspired? Share this episode with a friend or colleague and don’t forget to rate and review the show. It helps other listeners find us! And remember, just as I discovered, anything is possible if you believe in yourself and stay open to possibilities. When doors close, windows open. It is us to us to fly through.

    Elevate Your Visibility and Share Your Success with Dr. Alessandra Wall, CEO, Noteworthy

    Elevate Your Visibility and Share Your Strengths with Dr. Alessandra Wall, CEO, Noteworthy

    When hard work isn't enough, how do we ensure our efforts are acknowledged and celebrated? Dr. Alessandra Wall joins host Natalie Benamou this week to unravel this dilemma, especially for women looking to advance in their careers. Dr. Wall guides us how to gain visibility and feel empowered to share our strength.

    The journey to fulfillment in one's career is rarely a straight line. From child clinical psychologist to executive coaching, Dr. Wall experienced burnout and embraced failure, transforming these experiences into powerful lessons for personal and organizational success. In this episode, we discover how aligning our work with joy and fulfillment can offer a rich, multifaceted definition of success that transcends conventional metrics.

    Dr. Wall empowers us to confidently articulate our unique contributions, ensuring they resonate in every scenario.

    Key Takeaways:
    Overcoming the Belief that Work Speaks for Itself: Simply working hard is insufficient for career advancement. Instead, it's essential for women to actively make their achievements visible to those in positions of influence.

    Educating vs. Bragging: The conversation addresses the common hesitation among women to speak up about their achievements. Dr. Wall clarifies that sharing accomplishments is not bragging but a necessary strategy for educating others about one's capabilities.

    Strategic Visibility: Find out why it’s important to build visibility within an organization and how it relates to securing sponsorship, which is crucial for climbing the corporate ladder.

    Practical Steps for Building Confidence and Visibility: Discover specific strategies for women to articulate their value effectively, including the use of storytelling and tailoring communication to the audience's interests to engage them more deeply.

    Favorite Quotes:

    1. "It becomes our responsibility as human beings, and especially as women, to make sure that we educate people about what it is we excel at." - Dr. Alessandra Wall 

    2. "Happiness isn't about always being in a state of joy, but rather finding meaning in what you do and being content with striving to do your best." - Dr. Alessandra Wall

    3. "When you truly fail and you realize you can come back from it, then failure is not frightening anymore." - Dr. Alessandra Wall

    Throughout the episode, the emphasis is placed on actionable steps that women can immediately implement to enhance their professional visibility and impact. The discussion is both motivational and practical, offering insights into the systemic changes needed to support women in leadership roles fully.

    Thank you Dr. Wall for being a featured guest today.
