    Analiza Quiroz Wolf on Beliefs That Block You

    There are a lot of myths out there about what you need to do to be successful at work.
    You may already be at a point in your career where you’ve realized this and had to shift gears.
    And you may still feel like you are walking a tight rope of, for instance, needing to be more decisive but not too decisive because that can work against you as a woman. Or, advocating for yourself more but not too much because that also has consequences.
    On this episode of Women Taking the Lead I’m joined by Analiza Quiroz Wolf to talk about the strategies and practices that will actually lead you to success in the workplace.
    In this episode Analiza and I discussed: ·         How her own story influenced the need to debunk the myths of success and the research and experiences that went into it.
    ·         How our strategies for success often come from those who want the best for us but those strategies don’t always translate into success at work.
    ·         The notion that you will be seen, acknowledged and rewarded by focusing on your responsibilities and working hard.
    ·         How growing your influence is about developing relationships with others and again doesn’t involve a lot of hard work.
    ·         Letting go of leadership stereotypes so your own strengths as a leader can emerge.

    Are You as Self-Aware as You Think You Are?

    Are You as Self-Aware as You Think You Are?

    Would you describe yourself as being self-aware?
    Most people do. But according to research done by organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich and her team involving 5000 participants, it may be that only 10%-15% of the population is actually self-aware.
    Additionally, they found that when someone considers themselves to be highly experienced, that estimation may keep them from questioning their assumptions, seeking evidence that goes against their own position, or continuing to learn. This played out in more experienced managers overestimating their leadership effectiveness as compared to newer managers.  
    In the last episode we covered how to lead with emotional intelligence, and benefits of utilizing empathy in your leadership.
    In this episode we will expand on two of the five components of emotional intelligence: self-awareness and self-regulation. Additionally, you get a few suggestions on how to develop these abilities, so you feel more confident and creative in your role.

    Creating Psychological Safety with Pasha Marlowe

    Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you couldn't fully be yourself?
    Maybe you hesitated to share an idea, express an opinion, never mind present an opposing view. Or maybe felt like you didn't belong?

    How to Build Team Trust

    How to Build Team Trust

    Have you ever wondered why some teams do okay while others effortlessly tackle challenges?
    The secret lies in one word: TRUST. In fast-paced environments, team cohesion is more crucial. A cohesive team, built on trust, can leverage diverse skills, tools, and resources to conquer any obstacle.
    Building and maintaining trust is not a one-and-done exercise. Everything you do is either growing, maintaining, or diminishing the level of trust on your team.
    This episode explores the role of team trust and how it can transform your team dynamics. I'm covering the key benefits of team trust, the obstacles that destroy trust - or at the very least prevent it from growing, and how you can build trust on your team if trust is low.
