Confidence is one of the traits that leaders are expected to have. Having this allows you to sound credible, impact the lives of others, and expand your circle of influence. But how do you develop it if you lack the exposure and experience that others went through to gain the confidence they now have?

On today’s episode, I’m sharing why confidence is foundational to leadership and how being confident does not imply living fear-free. I’m also sharing some unique and unusual approaches to developing confidence that involve fear, risks, and challenges.

 

“It’s through facing fear and overcoming challenges that we build legit confidence.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The difference between healthy and unhealthy fear
  • Building resilience in the face of ongoing changes
  • Reasons to take risks in the corporate world
  • Setting a good example

 

 

Unconventional Ways to Build Your Confidence:

  1. Play scared.
  2. Think about death.
  3. When all else fails, remember it’s hard to get fired.
  4. Create a more interesting problem.
  5. Be the role model.

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.

Lolly Daskal is the CEO of Lead From Within, a New York Times best-selling author, and one of the most sought-after executive leadership coaches in the world who has worked with executive leaders in hundreds of companies across 14 countries. Her proprietary leadership program has helped leaders enhance their performance to make meaningful impacts in their companies, their lives, and the world. She has been named one of the Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts by Inc.com, one of the 100 Great Leadership Speakers for Your Next Event by Inc. Magazine, and The Huffington Post has named her as The Most Inspiring Woman of the World.

 

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
  • Her leadership archetypes
  • What the “R.E.T.H.I.N.K. System” is and how it can help you become a better leader
  • How to leverage your leadership gaps to become the best version of yourself
  • The importance of identifying your personal message to the world - then living it

 

 

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.

Email has become one of the best tools for businesses to communicate with their clients, customers, and other businesses, but keeping up with your email as an entrepreneur or fierce female leader can often be pretty overwhelming. How do you respond to every email that hits your inbox when you receive hundreds - if not thousands - of emails per day? If you don’t have a good, solid strategy for tackling your inbox, it can get out of hand quickly.

 

On today’s episode, I want to share with you an easy, 4 step process to stay on top of your inbox without dropping the ball on other important tasks.

 

 

“Any type of clutter is a sign of decisions you’re not making” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why you should choose specific times during the day to deal with email
  • The importance of emptying your inbox daily
  • Creating a “Keep Active” inbox folder for important emails you can defer

 

 

4 Step Process of Getting Out of Email Jail:

 

  1. Delete
  2. Delegate
  3. Deal with
  4. Defer

When we talk about powerhouse women in leadership, we are often talking about women CEOs, executives, and high-achieving, highly ambitious entrepreneurs, but being a powerhouse female leader doesn’t stop there! Over the last several decades, there have been a few brave women stepping up their leadership game - all the way to the White House.

 

I’m talking about the Kamala Harris’s, the Maxine Waters’, the Hillary Clinton’s, and the Elizabeth May’s of the world. Those women that are making a significant impact on the world; bringing to reality their vision of how the world should be.

 

My guest today is Mayor of Moncton, Dawn Arnold. Dawn shares why it’s so important for women to get their political voices heard, shares her experiences with running for office, and shares how she overcame her personal fears about campaigning. She explains how she developed the thick skin required to lead a political campaign and how her experiences can help you become a more fierce feminine leader.

 

 

“Change the game. Don’t let the game change you.” - Mayor Dawn Arnold

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why she decided to run for mayor of Moncton
  • Overcoming political campaigning challenges
  • How running for office impacts the entire family
  • Staying resilient during good and bad events and experiences
  • Owning your strengths and skills
  • Barriers preventing women to run for political offices
  • Bringing diverse groups with differing views together
  • How to be more comfortable with being more visible

 

 

Mayor Dawn Arnold’s Top 3 Success Strategies:

 

  1. Know your strengths and values - and own them.
  2. Be resilient and okay with taking ‘no’ for an answer.
  3. Take nothing personally.

Shelli Varela is a “possibility hacker,” public speaker, and Canada’s first female firefighter in one of the largest cities in the country. She went from being a young 20-something struggling artist working in makeup, film, and special effects to finding her true passion, her true calling, as a firefighter, working her way up to Fire Captain.

 

Shelli joins me today to share her “lightbulb moment” - the moment she decided to follow her passion and dream of becoming a firefighter. She shares how she used anger and her hyperactive imagination to help her accomplish her goals and her strategies for breaking down her big, audacious goals into bite-size pieces. She also explains the importance of giving yourself permission to explore your interests and passions and why it’s important to lead with possibility.

 

 

“The universe really does conspire to help you achieve your dreams, goals, and purpose if you allow it to do so.” - Shelli Varela

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Using anger to motivate you to achieve your goals and dreams
  • The importance of staying emotionally and mentally engaged
  • Visualizing and feeling yourself achieving your goals - even before you actually achieve them
  • The true meaning of being aligned and how you know when you’re in alignment
  • How identifying what you want to feel can set you on the path toward your “value currency”
  • Leading with possibility
  • The importance of applying grit to the goals and dreams you want to achieve

Setting boundaries are crucial to your overall success as an entrepreneur or business leader, but many people - especially women - significantly struggle with setting boundaries and sticking to them. For generations, women have been taught to put the needs of others ahead of their own; to be “people pleasers.”

 

However, in order to achieve your goals and dreams, you must be willing to set boundaries and say no to others so that you can focus on achieving your mission.

 

Today, I’m explaining what a boundary is and why setting strong ones are essential to helping you achieve your goals and reach your potential. I’m also providing you with three strategies on how to set strong boundaries that will help you achieve your goals.

 

 

“As you grow, your boundaries need to change.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How sharing your boundaries allows you to be truly generous
  • The importance of recognizing and addressing your “people pleasing” habits
  • The connection between your energy level and setting strong boundaries
  • Overcoming unpleasant feelings that may be associated with saying no to others
  • Strategies on how to start implementing stronger boundaries

 

 

5 Signs You Need Better Boundaries:

 

  1. Overcommitting
  2. Over-promising
  3. Feeling exhausted
  4. Second guessing yourself
  5. Resentment

Have you ever conducted a presentation knowing all-too-well that, that one presentation could be “the big one.” The one that could transform your business or career, open big new doors of opportunity, and really take things to the next level?

 

This happens a lot in the corporate world as well as the entrepreneurial world and how you handle these situations is the key to your success.

 

Many fierce female leaders find themselves “leading in fear” - the fear of owning the promise of their work. On today’s episode, I want to share why owning the promise of your work is critical to the success of your next presentation and how it can help you avoid stepping over big opportunities.

 

 

“As a leader, it’s your job to paint the vision.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How your success pivots on how well you convey your promise.
  • Owning the promise of your work isn’t the same as bragging
  • By not owning the promise of your work, you are engaging in a momentary lapse of leadership
  • The impact that owning your promise can have on your business, customers, and investors
  • How the promise of your work is the beating heart of your Million Dollar Message

Money is a form of currency - and a powerful form of energy. Having the right mindset around money and earning what you are worth is often difficult for many women entrepreneurs. My guest today is Denise Duffield Thomas. Denise is an award-winning speaker, author, and entrepreneur and the founder of Lucky Bitch where she helps women transform their economy class money mindset into a first-class life. Denise is passionate about helping women release their fear of money, set premium prices for their services, and take control of their finances.

 

She joins me today to share her journey into cultivating a powerful mindset around money. We discuss the common money blocks that hold women back from earning what they are truly worth and the link between financial empowerment and feminism.

 

“A healthy money mindset is not an absence of blocks or fears. It's about allowing yourself to receive money in ways that feel really good to you.” - Denise Duffield Thomas

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What money blocks are and how they impact your life and business
  • How to identify money blocks
  • The link between money blocks and creating passive revenue in your business
  • Income-producing activities vs “busy work”
  • The connection between a lack of focus and money blocks
  • Creating a focus mantra
  • Creating boundaries - and sticking to them

 

How to Overcome Money Mindset Blocks:

 

  1. Become aware of your money blocks
  2. Track your income - and your freebies

Many different factors come into play when you launch a new business. From figuring out your marketing strategy and identifying your ideal clients to creating proposals, attending networking events, and staying current on your education and certification courses, there are many things you need to consider to make a successful impact in your industry.

One of the most critical factors that many new entrepreneurs often overlook is their message. Your message, and the way you deliver it, can be the determining factor that makes a client or organization decide whether to work with you.

On today’s episode, I want to share four easy steps you can take to create a powerful message for your business and help you overcome the “boring message syndrome” that often plagues many fierce feminine leaders and entrepreneurs.

 

“Great leaders - women of influence - are storytellers and excellent communicators.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How to identify if you have “boring message syndrome”
  • How to elegantly and persuasively get people to hear your message
  • Creating a compelling argument
  • Using case studies to tell a story and support a controlling idea
  • Showing what is possible by implementing ideas, methods, or messages

 

4 Parts of Complete and Persuasive Messages:

  1. Your controlling idea
  2. The details
  3. The stories
  4. The promise

What does playing big in your business or career mean to you? For some, it may mean swallowing your fear and starting a new business or accepting – or declining – a promotion. My guest today is women’s leadership expert, Tara Mohr. She is a passionate coach, speaker, and the creator of the Playing Big Leadership Program, which has gained recognition by many major media publications including Oprah.com, Fast Company, TEDx Women, The New York Times, and Time Magazine.

Tara joins me today to share her story, what inspired her to empower women to play a bigger game, and what motivated her to publish her book, Playing Big: Practical Wisdom for Women Who Want to Speak Up, Create, and Lead. She shares her insight on what causes women to play small, how to overcome those fears to achieve the success they deserve, and the inner work necessary for women to play a bigger game.

 

“Playing big is being more loyal to your dreams than your fears.” – Tara Mohr

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How limiting beliefs often prevent women from playing big and accomplishing big goals
  • The inner work required for women to accomplish their “outer work” goals
  • Common signs and expressions of playing small
  • How Tara’s own experience with crushing limiting beliefs and fears has impacted her career and enabled her to play a bigger game
  • Why it’s important for women to “unhook” from praise as well as criticism
  • How to maintain a steadiness of your soul and why it’s important

 

Tara’s Tips to Play a Bigger Game:

  1. Become aware of and manage your inner critic voice
  2. Access your inner mentor
  3. Unhook from praise and criticism

I’m delighted to be podcasting from beautiful London England where I’m having a wonderful time doing business, visiting my family, and speaking at a conference for entrepreneurs where the topic of income generation came up. We hear the call and we become business women, but when it comes to monetizing I notice that many women entrepreneurs feel guilty about making money. The subjects of helping women become fierce successful financial leaders and overcoming money blocks are subjects I have a deep fascination in. 

 

Do learned money rules or stories affect how you deal with finances? I come from a long line of economists and economizers and I learned a great deal from my parents who were trying to build a future with what little income they brought in. I was taught early on that there was a scarcity of money or that it would be here today and gone tomorrow so I learned that waste not want not was a valid money rule, but I also learned to be uncomfortable around money.

 

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you how learned money rules create blocks that interfere with your business success and your joy, and I talk about helping you break the chains holding you back from true financial freedom.

 

 

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

 

  1. How economizing and economy affected me as a young girl.
  2. How your money story will catch up to you in business.
  3. Common money blocks that hold you back.
  4. I share about how money blocks surfaced when I started my business.
  5. How I help you change your mindset so you can embrace money.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Reflect on your money stories and how they have affected you in your personal and business life and download your free Monthly Cash Calculator.
  • Give back to others and be a part of transforming the world into a softer, kinder, and nurturing place.

Since 2007, Womenable has partnered with American Express OPEN to develop and deliver research-based statistics on the role that women-owned businesses have had on the post-recession market throughout the United States and globally. She joins us today to share a few of the statistics that the 2016 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report has revealed this year in comparison to previous years, as well as shares some insight on how she grew her business and tips for women who are considering starting a business in the near future.

Thank you, Julie, for being on the show today and sharing this valuable information with the Fierce Feminine Leadership listeners.

Notable Statistics:

  • There are 11.3-Million women-owned businesses in the United States employing nearly 9-Million people and generating over $1.6-Trillion in revenue.

  • Be relentless (in a good way); persevere to reach your business goals.
  • “Stick with it; success doesn’t happen overnight.”

All of us have dreams. Some dream of pursuing their dream career or profession while others dream of making a great name for themselves in business. Whichever dream you might have, one thing is for certain: You have to invest in yourself and trust me when I say your future self will thank you if you start now.

Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Show:

  • Imagine your dreams and goals to be like a small baby. In order for babies to grow healthy and strong, you have to give them all the time and commitment just like your dreams.
  • It’s natural for women in our society to put other people in front of us but now it’s time to focus on you.
  • You won’t be able to grow your dreams if you don’t invest on them or feed it scraps.
  • You have to improve your belief and commitment to your dreams so you can improve your belief and commitment to yourself.
  • Put your money where your mouth is. Invest in your dreams.
  • Do not give up on goals when they get hard. When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
  • Don’t make excuses to put your dreams on hold.
  • Successful companies burn through loads of cash when they’re growing. You yourself can’t grow without spending money.
  • Investing in yourself first is a powerful mindset so invest in you.
  • Investing on something is not the same as doing work to generate the results. You can’t spend your way out of a problem. 

My Challenge To You!

Take your dreams and goals seriously. Commit to investing in yourself and in those goals to make them a reality. Get access to the right kind of people who possess the right kind of skills and influences. Give yourself permission to invest in yourself.

According to research, over half of today’s workforce is made up of women professionals, but far less have achieved their goals of landing a top position within their company. Statistics show that by mid-career, these powerful women with leadership potential lose their desire to reach the top midway in their careers.

In this episode, I am going to share with you the top three career derailers that are the most common reasons for great, aspiring women to lose their desire and confidence in landing that top spot.

  1. Broaden Your Career Focus

Women tend to specialize in specific roles within their company. Specializing in a particular field can all too often limit your chances for successfully landing a top position or becoming the company’s next CEO. Ladies, if you want to become an influential woman leader, you need to learn and appreciate how your organization works as a whole, and to do that, you need to start making lateral moves into unknown territory.

Until you learn how your company works as an entity, you won’t be able to lead it.

  1. Become a ‘People Person’ – Learn How to Work with People You Don’t Like

Being a “people person” does not mean that everyone has to like you – or that you have to like everyone. It means that you have successfully mastered the art of communicating and working with people whose personalities may conflict with your own. Mastering this skill is an incredibly important attribute to have when you are trying to land a top seat in your company or organization.

After all, you don’t think Sheryl Sandberg likes everyone she ever worked with at Facebook and Google, do you? Of course not, but by learning how to build solid working relationships with people, it enabled her to become a top women leader.

  1. Take Smart Risks

Being a CEO often involves taking smart risks. If you want to be a CEO of your company, you need to learn how to get out of your comfort zone and make the decision to take a smart risk. Ask for tough assignments, even if they are only short-term projects. Raise your hand at the next meeting and allow your voice and opinions to be heard. Volunteer new ideas to your boss and ask for new and different roles in the company. Some new positions may require you to accept a demotion, but that’s okay! It will only help your career in the long-run.

There are too many women in the workforce playing it safe at work. If you want to be CEO, you cannot be one of them. Get the courage to speak up, take risks, and lead your career YOUR way.

Only you have control over the direction of your career. It’s time to get the courage you need to take action and be the Fierce Feminine Leader we all know you can be!

Tracking your time can be an effective way to track your productivity. In fact, I often recommend my clients to track their working hours to give them an overview of exactly how productive they are and track how many things they actually do while at work. But have you ever thought about tracking you’re your personal time – the time outside of working for your organization or business? Many people do not realize just how powerful and valuable tracking their non-working hours can be.

I recently experimented with tracking my time, both at work and at home. This experiment has opened my eyes to many lessons about how I spend my time, my true productivity level, and even taught me how much time I actually spend with my family and friends.

In this episode, I’m going to share with you the 5 lessons I have learned after tracking my time over a 14 day period and why you should conduct your own experiment to help you identify where you could improve how you spend your time each week.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why tracking your personal time, as well as your working hours, can help you identify areas to improve
  • How tracking your time can help you overcome “mom guilt”

 

5 Things Tracking Your Time Each Week Can Teach You:

  1. Identify if you’re truly getting enough sleep
  2. Identify if you’re eating enough to fuel your daily, intense ambition and energy level
  3. The amount of time you truly spend with your children
  4. The number of hours you actually dedicate to work
  5. Identify if you’re lying to yourself about not having time to do fun or important things

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.”

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.
