It’s easy to get caught up in daily tasks and neglect the goals we have set for ourselves. Sometimes fear or uncertainty cause us to procrastinate, and we need to shift our mindset to stay on track. Sometimes we lack the accountability we need to meet our goals. Whatever the reason we lose focus, there are strategies we can implement to realign ourselves with our goals and retrain our focus on the important work instead of the busy work.

In today’s episode, I share five strategies I have consistently used to stay focused on my goals. I explain how I combine mindset work with organization to achieve the best results. I describe the benefits of continuous learning and how having a coach for accountability has helped propel my business forward. I also explain how vital it is to build a team who you can outsource your decisions to preserve your willpower.

 

“If you set concrete goals and never look at them again, your chances and the likelihood of you reaching those goals goes down.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Strategies to help you stay focused and on track.
  • The importance of reviewing your goals on a regular basis.
  • My system for setting, reviewing, and completing goals.
  • Why I prioritize internally generated deadlines over externally generated deadlines.
  • Why I recommend starting a regular meditation practice.
  • The importance of building both a professional and personal team.
  • What it means to outsource your willpower.
  • The importance of continuing to read and learn.
  • The benefits of having a coach.

 

5 Strategies to Stay Focused:

  1. Set yearly goals and review them two to three times a week.
  2. Meditate.
  3. Build a team.
  4. Reading and learning.
  5. Work with a coach.

Aug 9, 2018

When an opportunity comes knocking on your door what do you do? Do you weigh the pros and cons of accepting that new position or working on that new project? Or do you immediately say ‘Sure, I’ll try that!’ My guest today has worked her way up through the leadership ranks throughout her career by never turning down a challenge. Christine Nigro, Vice-Chairwoman of AXA Advisors, LLC and Managing Director for AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company based in New York, joins me today to give you powerful advice on climbing the leadership ladder toward career success.

Download The Worksheet Here

She shares her story about how she never turned down an opportunity, even when she knew she didn’t check all of the qualification boxes to complete a new project or accept a new job – and in doing so, she explains how her “never say no to a challenge” motto has helped her advance her career far beyond the norm. She shares practical advice on what you can do to help grow your networking team, find people willing to sponsor and vouch for your skills, as well as how to speak up in a board room meeting when you don’t agree with something being said without coming off too aggressively to your co-workers and peers.

“When presented with an opportunity to learn something, don’t worry about where it will take you in your career. Just take the opportunity.” – Christine Nigro

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Christine’s journey to success – how she became an expert in running local businesses for large international companies.
  • Why she believes it’s important for women to be willing to take risks.
  • How asking continually asking questions helped her advance her career.
  • Why she believes women should focus on things they are good at.
  • Why she believes it’s important to identify the people who can help you.
  • What role has sponsors played in her career and how has she found them.
  • How critical was it for her to be in an operational role and why we don’t see more women accepting these roles?

 

Christine’s 3 Practical Tips for Being Assertive Without Being Aggressive:

  1. State your concern in the form of a question.
  2. Be willing to “wear some labels.”
  3. Allow people to have some of the culture they grew up with.

 

Christine’s Top 3 Pieces of Advice:

  1. You really have to like what you are doing.
  2. Let your natural competitiveness out and allow it to be seen by others.
  3. Find the fun in everything you do.

My Invitation To You!

Are you working within an organization or feeling stuck or stagnate in your career and know you are capable of so much more? Are you an entrepreneur and know that you’re playing small, could be charging more for your work or know you are a thought-leader in your space and are struggling to get your message “out there?”

She emphasizes how combination and sequencing are vital to business growth and why it is more important than ever for businesses to focus on improving their customer experience. She also shares her top three growth strategies for female founders to boost their growth IQ.

  • What her upbringing in Hawaii taught her about life and business.

  • Using unconventional strategies as a growth path.
  • What surprises her the most about how companies grow.
  • Three growth strategies for female founders.

 

Tiffani Bova’s Top 3 Growth Strategies:

  3. Figure out how you can start to give back.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “Experience is the new product.” - Tiffani Bova
  • “The lines between B2B and B2C have blurred to the point that I’m now calling it B2E: business to everything, everyone, and to the experience.” - Tiffani Bova
  • “The companies that are more outside-in oriented, culturally, are able to really align themselves to this message of experience being the product.” - Tiffani Bova

Did you know, there is a single strategy that you can use to help you take quantum leaps in your business and career?

This single strategy has helped one entrepreneurs that I know increase her yearly sales by as much as $75,000. This same strategy is what has helped position our previous podcast guest, Charles Chang, as an expert in his field and helped significantly boost his company’s growth in a very short period of time.

But… this strategy takes courage. It takes guts. Ladies, it takes a serious pair of ovaries!

I’m talking about thought-leadership and preeminence.

So, how do you position yourself as a preeminent thought-leader in your industry, your business, or your career?

On today’s episode, I want to share with you the exact strategy that I have taught several of my clients – as well as one that I have used myself – to position themselves as a preeminent thought leader in their niche, their industry, and their specific area of expertise.

So, grab your cup of coffee or tea, sit back and relax, and let’s dive right in!

 

Positioning yourself as a preeminent thought-leader can help you take quantum leaps in your business and career – Eleanor Beaton

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Preeminence is positioning yourself as a thought-leader in your specific area of expertise.
  • It can help you create quantum leaps of you, whether you’re an entrepreneur or working within an organization and advancing your career
  • It’s about understanding that when you own, value, and share what you know and approach your work with the mindset that you’re in it to serve, educate, and contribute – you are without competition.
  • There are several key components to preeminence – the first, and most challenging one, is having the courage.
  • There are two big challenges to the preeminence strategy
  • There are many tactics you can use to position yourself into a preeminence position

 

Key Components to Preeminence:

  • Having the courage
  • Really knowing your stuff
  • Doing the inner work to give yourself permission and be a believable expert in your field
  • Creating a platform that allows you to demonstrate your expertise
  • Educate, serve, and show up as a person of intense value for your people or organization

 

Additional Resources Related to Creating Preeminence:

Are you interested in stepping into the Fall season with more courage, more focus, more direction, and more fierceness?

Today’s episode was inspired by you – my wonderfully fierce feminine leaders listening to this podcast each week. In a recent survey, you asked me to share more tips on how to build and project confidence as well as overcome fears and obstacles you are dealing with in your career. 

 

Ask, and you shall receive! 

Today, I want to share with you five tips on how you can stand in your power while ‘plugging up’ various power leaks that you may be experiencing in your journey to becoming a high-achieving female leader. 

5 Keys to Standing in Your Power 

  1. Understand that criticism is a compliment. 
  • Criticism doesn’t mean you are doing something wrong. It just means you are playing a bigger game. 
  1. Take nothing personally. 
  • When you take things personally, it not only affects you – it affects your family, your business, and your team. 
  1. Learn to work with those you don’t like. 
  • You don’t have to like everyone, but you do have to be able to work well with everyone. 
  1. Brains don’t compensate for a lack of self-awareness. 
  • No amount of education or training can compensate for your lack of self-awareness. 
  • Continue to invest in and deepen your self-awareness. 
  • Be a fan of humility. 
  1. Your life is the result of your choices. 
  • Don’t give your power away to someone else. Your life – your career – is the result of your own decisions.

Have you ever experienced sitting in a boardroom with a fantastic idea in your head that is later voiced out by somebody else who ends up getting all the credit for that clever idea? This scenario is only one of the many situations that can happen when you, a potential influencer, hesitated to trust your instinct and doubted yourself “just because.”

On today’s episode, I talk about why you need to improve your gut instincts. I also share the relationship between listening to your gut instincts and being effective, the benefits of self-trust, and some practical steps to develop self-trust to improve your instincts.

 

“Self-trust is the return on investment from taking small daily steps outside your comfort zone.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The graveyard of ideas and strategies
  • The most repeated success tip from executives and successful entrepreneurs
  • Practical comparison between doubting yourself and trusting yourself
  • How to cultivate your gut instinct
  • Difference between having an instinct versus consistently willing to trust that instinct
  • Best way to develop self-trust
  • Best way to celebrate progress

 

Steps to Cultivate Your Gut Instinct:

  1. Do the legwork.
  2. Take small risks.
  3. Celebrate your wins.

Emma Weston is a lawyer, farmer, mentor, and co-founder of the technology start-up AgriDigital. She was recently named one of Australia’s Top 25 FinTech Influencers, Female FinTech Leader of the Year, and Emerging FinTech Leader of the Year for 2017 by FinTech Australia. In addition to her work as a mentor for female technology entrepreneurs, she also serves as a non-executive director of the Australian Digital Commerce Association and FinTech Australia.

 

On today’s episode, Emma explains why domain knowledge is as necessary as technical knowledge for entrepreneurs in the technology space and how valuable it has been for her to surround herself with mentors and advisors who can fill in the gaps in her knowledge. She shares practical advice for entrepreneurs and start-ups on building a company to scale and tips on creating and delivering a winning pitch. She also shares the organizational strategies she uses when tackling big projects with her team.

 

“Although technology is what can unlock the solution, it is actually the domain knowledge that helps us define what the problem is in the first place.” - Emma Weston

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What being a farmer has taught her about being an entrepreneur.
  • How domain knowledge helps to define the problem that technology can help solve.
  • What AgriDigital does and how it uses blockchain.
  • The importance of confidently asking questions and learning when working in an unfamiliar space.
  • How it is possible to build a business in a domain that you do not have a background in.
  • The lessons she has learned about entrepreneurship and leadership while building her business.
  • The benefits of working with a diverse team whose members complement each other’s skills and knowledge.
  • Advice for other startups trying to build a company to solve a worldly problem.
  • The importance of finding a balance between ideas and execution on a team or in a partnership.
  • Why she believes technology companies should be more open about what they are creating.
  • Her top organizational tips for tackling big projects.
  • Why she recommends tapping into team members’ personal motivations before starting a project.
  • The importance of noticing when you are not performing at your personal best.
  • The most common challenges faced by the entrepreneurs she mentors.
  • How women entrepreneurs’ need to be an expert holds them back.
  • The hallmarks of going from a start-up to an early stage growth company and how leaders should prepare themselves for scalability.

 

Emma Weston’s Tips for a Successful Pitch:

 

  1. Keep it simple.
  2. Practice.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “I want people to tell me when I’m not being as effective as they’ve seen me be in the past so I can take corrective action.” - Emma Weston
  • “When crafting a pitch, what really resonates a lot more, quite often is a story that illustrates rather than trying to just explain. I think that going for whatever is simple is what’s needed in the pitching environment.” - Emma Weston
  • “As women, we sometimes set a standard that is frankly too high. It’s just unattainable, and that holds us back.” - Emma Weston

Welcome back, my fierce tribe! Today, I want to ask you: Are you too impatient? When you sit down and plan out your 30, 60, or 90 plan, do you become too impatient about seeing results quickly? Do you sometimes feel like your impatience interferes with your success or overall sense of happiness?

Throughout my experience of working with smart, high-achieving, ambitious women, impatience has been one of the most common concerns for my wonderful colleagues. But let me fill you in on a little secret:

If you are a high-achieving, ambitious person, impatience is a natural state of affairs for you.

This feeling is natural, but you need to know that it is also important to reframe it in a way that you can utilize it in a constructive way in your business.

Today, I want to share with you two ways that you can reframe your impatience and use it to achieve the happiness and success you deserve.

 

2 Ways to Reframe Your Impatience:

  1. Look at it as a sense of urgency that will fuel you to create results quickly.
  2. Use your intuition. Invite a sense of stillness into your life.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Deal with your impatience. Analyze it. Reframe it so you can turn it into a constructive tool that you can use to achieve your goals.

It goes without saying that confidence is key when it comes to being a fierce female entrepreneur. However, confidence does not come easily to everyone, so it needs to be learned and practiced. A lack of confidence can hold you back and make you feel stuck, but what you may not realize is that gaining confidence can be a fantastic growth strategy.

In today’s episode, I discuss the importance of building your confidence while growing your business and why not all forms of confidence will result in business success. I explain the three types of confidence you need to help you scale your business and tips on how you can build your confidence while growing your organization. I also explain the importance of being curious and asking for blunt feedback and why it’s okay if your work-life and personal-life is unbalanced as you scale your business.

 

“Building confidence is absolutely critical for all women leaders, but it is completely non-negotiable for women entrepreneurs.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why confidence is the ultimate growth strategy for your business.
  • The top 3 areas of confidence that you should focus on.
  • How to ask for and receive blunt feedback.
  • Who you should ask for feedback.
  • Why you don’t need to have all of the answers all the time.
  • How curiosity can help you become successful.
  • The problem with the concept of a work/life balance.
  • How confidence can help you when work/life balance is not possible.



The 3 Types of Confidence Women Need for Business Growth:

  1. Confidence to ask the right people for blunt feedback.
  2. Confidence to admit you don’t have all the answers.
  3. Confidence to temporarily give up work/life balance.

As fierce feminine leaders and entrepreneurs wearing many hats and taking on a wide variety of personal and professional responsibilities, finding ways to improve our productivity and get the most accomplished in our daily lives can sometimes seem unattainable. In fact, there are literally thousands of books, tools, and apps available on the internet that are designed to help people become more productive and manage their time more effectively. However, the truth is, we truly do not have an accurate gauge of how we spend our time – and because of that – we often feel like we are less productive than we truly are.

My guest today is Laura Vanderkam, an expert in time management and productivity. Laura is the author of several productivity and time management books, including I Know How She Does It: What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast and 168 Hours. Her work has been featured in dozens of publications including Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, and USA Today. She joins me today to share her insight and research regarding how many highly successful women manage their time, the myths about having a big career while raising a family, and why she believes tracking your time throughout the week – including the weekends – is the key to discovering how you can improve your productivity and time management skills.

 

“How we think we spend our time often has very little relation to how we actually spend our time.” – Laura Vanderkam

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What she discovered after tracking her time in 30-minute increments
  • Why she tracks her time during the weekend as well as during the week
  • The biggest net benefits of tracking her time each week
  • The misconception that having a big career or working full-time will reduce the amount of time you spend with your children
  • Surprising trends she discovered during her 1,001-hour research project
  • Utilizing morning hours and structuring morning routines to work for you

 

Laura Vanderkam’s Top 3 Success Tips:

  1. Track your time for one week.
  2. Really think about what you want to spend more time doing.
  3. Think about how you use those “little bits of time.”

Whether you realize it or not, business and sports have a lot in common. Playing a sport teaches you how to be a good team member and team leader, but it also teaches you the importance of being comfortable with having possession. Every player on a top performing, top ranking sports team is comfortable with possessing and controlling the ball because they know that one day they could be in a position to make the winning goal.

 

So, what can we learn from these top performing athletes and teams that can help us become better team members and team leaders in our organizations? On today’s episode, I’m explaining the importance of getting comfortable with “controlling the ball” in your business and organization and how it can help you become a better leader, speaker, and business owner.

 

 

“The best leaders are self-possessed.”

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Lessons we can learn from sports athletes to help us become better leaders
  • The importance of getting comfortable with possession
  • Identifying “spotlight masters” and “spotlight amateurs”

 

 

My Challenge to You:

 

  • Think about your career, your business, your life as a giant soccer field
  • When you have the ball, take a deep breath, trust yourself, and trust your instincts to make the right decision

As your life, your business, and your career continue to evolve, it’s common to need to make tweaks and changes within your personal and professional life to continue your journey to achieving success. Even small changes can have a significant impact on how you show up in the world.

Today, I want to share with you one small tweak that I recently made in my personal life and how it has dramatically improved my business – and my life.

By taking ownership of my daily schedule, by making a small tweak, I’ve really been able to generate great results.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How small changes in your daily routine can improve how you show up in the world
  • How outsourcing tasks and finding an accountability partner helps “free up” mental space so you can work more productively

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Ask yourself: What small tweak can I make in my daily schedule that can generate big results?
  • Ask yourself: What am I not allowing myself to consider because I think “this is the only way it works for me?”
  • Be open and fluid. Explore opportunities. Try new things.

In an age where fame is celebrated for fame, many fierce feminine leaders hold themselves back from building a powerful personal brand. Some even believe that building a personal brand is little more than a vacuous, attention-seeking activity when, in reality, it is so much more than that.

On today’s episode, I’m sharing a replay of a recent personal branding training seminar called Rise Up: 7 Unconventional Strategies to Build Your Personal Brand. I explain what a personal brand is and why it’s important for advancing your career or business as well as share actionable strategies you can use to start building your powerful personal brand. I also explain why you should view your personal brand as a reflection of your values and what you represent and why it should be considered an asset to your professional career.

 

“When you think about great leaders - in order for them to be great leaders, to be recognized as such - it’s not just the impact that they have one-on-one. It’s about what they represent and the impact they have at scale.’ - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How building a personal brand allows you to make a greater impact on your industry and humanity.
  • How your personal brand relates to your values and what you represent.
  • What is a personal brand?
  • Why your personal brand should be considered an asset to your business and career.
  • Why now is the time to build your personal brand
  • Identifying the core reason you want to build a personal brand and what you want to achieve.
  • The life cycle of opportunity.
  • Getting clear on various obstacles you may face as you build your personal brand and how to overcome them.
  • How your personal brand impacts your influence.
  • The connection between leadership, influence, and your personal
  • Overcoming the fear of playing big.
  • Dealing with criticism and push back while creating impact and building a personal brand.
  • How adopting a mission bigger than yourself helps you build a strong personal brand.
  • How to identify a bigger, more meaningful mission to adopt.
  • What it means to own the promise of your mission.
  • The importance of sharing your bold, galvanizing point of view on topics you are passionate about.
  • Overcoming the “people pleaser” mindset and getting comfortable with other people disagreeing with you.
  • The difference between fear-based boundaries and intentional boundaries.
  • The importance of mastering the art of public speaking.
  • What “conviction’ means and how to cultivate it.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “When you have impact at scale, it means you can amplify the impact that you want to have for much less effort.”
  • “If your personal brand exists only for other people - you are missing the biggest part of the equation.”
  • “Your personal brand is about intentional contribution that reflects your values.”

Numbercrunch is a forward-thinking accounting support company focused on helping startups and small and mid-sized enterprises manage their business finances through Virtual CFO, accounting, and bookkeeping services.

Susan joins me today to share how she pursued her personal interests while working in an organization, the lessons she learned throughout her childhood about entrepreneurship, and how Numbercrunch and Givopoly initially began. She explains the difference between “growth mode” and “expansion mode” as it relates to building your business and how she finds balances her time, energy and creativity while juggling her career and personal life. She also explains why she believes it's critical for more women to have a seat at the boardroom tables and what we need to do to help women achieve this goal.

 

“There is absolutely an open mind to getting women on boards. What there isn’t is a nudge.” - Susan Richards

  • The most powerful lessons she has learned about entrepreneurship.
  • How she pursued her personal interests while working within an organization.
  • The biggest insights and takeaways she has learned while working with startups.

  2. Give a lot of thought to your business model.
  3. Serve a need - not a want.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Kill it at the job you’re doing. Make yourself so valuable to that company that they will give you more and more trust. You can be the role you want to be in that organization.” - Susan Richards
  • “I came to the realization that if I’m going to do intense professional - I need to do intense personal. It all kind of balances against each other.” - Susan Richards
  • “There are great organizations now that are helping to train women and make them aware of large board positions, but in parallel to that, we can just tap each other on the shoulders and get us in the right room and make people aware.” - Susan Richards

Lolly joins me today to share her story and provide practical strategies on how fierce feminine leaders can explore their leadership gaps to step into their power and lead from within. She also shares ways for you to leverage your “impostor syndrome” to improve your leadership skills and describes her “leadership archetypes”.

 

 

“Striving for perfection is striving to fail.” - Lolly Daskal

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why discipline and routines are important to her
  • The relationship between being present and being disciplined
  • How being disciplined can give you a sense of grounding and expansiveness
  • Balancing the desire to learn, improve, and enhance with the idea that “I’m not broken.”
  • How biographies can be more impactful than self-help books
  • Her definition of a great leader
  • Overcoming challenges when a concept becomes a reality

How to Leverage Your Impostor Syndrome:

 

  1. Stop comparing yourself to others.
  2. Ask yourself: “What did I do today that was better than yesterday? What will I do tomorrow that will be better than today?”
  3. Understand the distinction between perfection and excellence.

As highly ambitious women, striving to reach our goals, dreams, and meet the needs of our clients often leads us to striving for the near-impossible – perfection. Highly ambitious, professional women and female entrepreneurs often find themselves spending countless hours changing, tweaking, revising, and polishing our work – whether it’s that next blog post or the next big course we want to launch – before we finally put it out into the world.

This “perfection addiction” is a common issue for many new and experienced entrepreneurs as well as highly ambitious, successful professional women. Today, I want to share with you my 5 powerhouse strategies for coping with – and overcoming – the perfect addiction.

 

“Embrace the mantra that ‘done’ truly is better than ‘perfect’.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Overcoming the fear of “dropping the ball” when faced with the opportunity to scale and grow
  • Reconciling growth and ambition with perfection

 

5 Powerful Strategies to Cope with Perfection Addiction:

  1. Embrace constraints
  2. Embrace public accountability
  3. Release attachment to limiting relationships
  4. Find bold, imperfect role models
  5. Boss up, woman!

As a woman, it can be challenging to gain the respect you deserve if you are working in a male-dominate industry and now one knows that better than today's guest.

Elem Rinomato’s journey into the construction industry began at the tender age of 8 when she asked her father the simple question, “Daddy, what is drywall?” Today, she is the president of Torino Drywall, a company that builds wall and ceiling system for high-rise and low-rise residential and commercial construction projects as well as the owner of Country Homes – a residential home construction company for the Greater Toronto Area. She is also the Vice President of the Rinomato group of commercial companies, the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Interior Systems Contractors Association, and a board member of the local apprenticeship committee.

Elem is an incredibly fierce feminine leader in the construction industry, and today, she joins me on the show to share her story. She explains what it was like to be the only woman in the boardroom and how she overcame gender bias in a male-dominated business world.

 

“At the end of the day, one of the only things you have in life is the ability to make your own decisions. If you don’t voice your opinion, if you don’t say how you really feel, you become guilty of letting other people make choices for you.” – Elem Rinomato

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What she did to set her company apart from her competitors.
  • What it was like to be the only woman in the room – and how she earned the respect of her male counterparts.
  • How to get your voice heard in a male-dominant industry.
  • How removing negativity – and negative people – from your life helps you shift your mindset and become a powerhouse businesswoman.
  • Female intuition and how it helps you achieve success.
  • Why energy, authenticity, and attitude in business is more important than facts, education, money, circumstances, failures, and success.
  • Overcoming the fear of success.

 

Elem Rinomato’s Top 3 Success Strategies:

  • Know your stuff.
  • Attitude is everything.
  • Believe in yourself.

When it comes to personal branding, there is a lot of conventional wisdom, information, and insight floating around the internet. From articles in business magazines and on LinkedIn to professional development workshops, training, and books - there are dozens of “experts” teaching others how to build their personal brand through conventional methods and wisdom. On the surface, most of this advice seems reasonable. However, if you dig a little deeper, you will likely find that the advice and wisdom they share is often counterproductive, ineffective, and even damaging.

 

On today’s episode, I’m discussing why everything you’ve learned about building your personal brand is wrong. I share the three most common myths about building your personal brand, how believing these myths can actually hold you back from achieving your professional goals, and how they can prevent you from showing up as the strong, confident, fierce feminine leader we know you can be. I also explain why your personal brand should be viewed as the byproduct of your decision to be deliberate and intentional and why the way you present yourself and your brand should reinforce your ideas, values, and mission in this world.

  

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had listened to the bad, but conventional, advice I received about personal branding.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The importance of aligning your personal brand with your instincts and values.
  • Why building your personal brand is not a “fluff-filled activity.”
  • The dangers of taking advice from people with “unconscious competence.”
  • Why your reputation is critical to your long-term success.
  • Why your presentation should reinforce your ideas.
  • Why the idea that your personal brand is your lead indicator is wrong
  • The importance of viewing your personal brand as the lag indicator - not the compass.
  • Why your brand should be a natural byproduct of you being true to the things that matter most to you. 

Top 3 Myths About Personal Branding:

  1. Don’t build your personal brand.
  2. Presentation trumps ideas.
  3. Building a personal brand constricts your freedom of expression and decisiveness.

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Bold presentation is going to be most powerful when it reinforces your ideas.”
  • “A brand is a return on investment. It is a lag indicator that you build from being intentional about your values, what you bring to the world, and the contribution you want to make.”
  • Don’t lead with brand. Brand is the afterglow. Action and intention are the things that are going to get you where you want to go.”

Andrea Mallard is the Chief Marketing Officer at Athleta, an ethical apparel brand recognized for their yoga wear and clothing line designed to inspire women and girls to reach their full potential. Andrea received her bachelor’s degree in International Politics and English Literature from Queens University in 1999 and her master’s degree in Media from the London School of Economics in 2001 - graduating at the very top of her class at both schools.

Today, Andrea shares how to incorporate creativity into your business and the power of failure. She explains the critical nature of maintaining a “beginner’s mind” despite your level of success and how to find the advantages lurking within unexpected situations. She also shares her thoughts on personal branding and why she thinks you shouldn’t focus on building your personal brand.

Do you strongly believe that working hard produces its own results and rewards? That if you work hard enough, you won’t need to “toot your own horn” and share your accomplishments with others because, ultimately, your hard work is proof of your success and accomplishments?

Many brilliant, high-achieving professional women shy away from talking about themselves, their accomplishments, and their successes because they don’t want to come off as obnoxious or leave the impression that they are bragging. What many of these fierce ladies may not realize, though, is that sharing their accomplishments with the world helps them claim their power, their authority, and their voice.

So, how can you subtly toot your own horn without coming off as obnoxious or braggy? That, my fierce friends, is exactly what I’m going to share with you today! I’m sharing five powerful strategies to help you share your accomplishments and successes without sounding like you have a chip on your shoulder.

 

“As you advance, that hard work and the results become table stakes.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why sharing your accomplishments are critical to your potential for advancement
  • How to share your accomplishments without sounding obnoxious
  • The importance of scheduling weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly “check-ins” with your boss or clients

 

5 Tips to Subtly Toot Your Own Horn:

  1. Talk about your team, their results, while making it clear that you are in the driver’s seat
  2. Take your boss and your client out to lunch
  3. Get recommendations on LinkedIn
  4. Use the power of stories
  5. Share what you have learned.
