What are your “wins?” If you are like many of the fierce feminine leaders that I coach, mentor, and teach – you probably answer that question by starting with: “Well, this isn’t much of a win, but…” or, “I’m not really good at this, but…”

Does that sound like you?

On today’s episode, I want to talk to you about the things that many ambitious women say about themselves and how they “show up” in today’s modern business world. After all, the way you show up, the things you say about yourself, and the confidence you have about yourself and your accomplishments is often the lasting impression that other people remember about you.

 

Diminishing ourselves can become an unfortunate habit that reinforces itself.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Showing up authentically and with power
  • The difference between being dishonest with yourself about your abilities and being intentional about how you show up to others
  • The power of being confident in yourself, your abilities, and your accomplishments

When it comes to taking quantum leaps in growing your business or significantly advancing in your career – it’s not all about the amount of effort, hard work, dedication, or perseverance you provide your business or organization. These things do play a significant role, however it’s not the only thing that your business partners or your organizational leaders consider when it’s time to promote or open your business to new opportunities.

Effort, hard work, dedication, and perseverance can get our foot in the door, but it won’t get you to the front of the line.

So, what is it that can put you at the front of the line for that next promotion or the big speaking opportunity you’ve been dreaming about? In one word – sponsors – powerful, connected people within your organization or industry that can open the doors of opportunity for you.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you the difference between a mentor and a sponsor and how connecting with a sponsor can help you make the quantum leaps you desire in your business or career in 2017.

 

Sponsors are like the ladders in a game of Snakes and Ladders.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Research shows that women focus more on connecting with role models than connecting with sponsors.
  • What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
  • Sponsors are your allies – not your friend. You work together to help each other advance in your careers.
  • How to find a sponsor in your organization or industry to help you advance your business or career.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Find a sponsor.
  • Look beyond your mentors.
  • Remember: Sponsorship is earned.

Many highly-ambitious, motivation-driven fierce feminine leaders often feel like they are not as productive as they could be. Despite all of the balls they juggle throughout the day, they are constantly looking for ways to squeeze every ounce of “juice” out of every waking moment. They know that their productivity is the true core of their power as a fierce leader, so improving it is the key to  developing their leadership skills.

So, how do you increase your productivity as a highly-ambitious, fierce feminine leader?

Today, I’m sharing the top five reasons you are not as productive as you could be as well as tips on how to boost your productivity to become a better leader. I explain how envisioning where you want your life and business to go impacts your productivity and the importance of finding the right strategy to help you focus and reach your goals. I also explain the difference between emotional support and practical support, how taking moments of periodic intensity helps you become more productive, and why trying to be all things to all people is one of the biggest mistakes a leader can make and how it can ultimately kill your productivity.

 

“We’re all looking for ways to be better, to improve, to do more with less - to be more productive.” - Eleanor Beaton

  

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The difference between being efficient and being productive.
  • How your vision fuels your productivity.
  • Strategies to help you reconnect with your vision and self-identity.
  • How the areas you focus on and the strategies you use impact your productivity.
  • The difference between emotional support and practical support.
  • What periodic intensity is and how it helps increase your productivity.
  • How mastering the art of saying ‘no’ allows you to be more productive and focus on the win-win opportunities.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “Productivity is the amount of leveraged and focused energy that you can apply to results-producing activities.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “In the absence of a clear vision, you are a ship without a rudder.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “It is really important that we are able to lay down strong boundaries - to articulate what our agenda is, to find opportunities to collaborate and work together - but be able to say ‘NO’ when it is not a win-win situation.” - Eleanor Beaton

You know, the power of the internet has made it very easy to start and run an amazing business, but when it comes to getting your brand visible by the right people – that can often be a bit trickier – especially for introverts. Many fierce feminine leaders know they need to put themselves out there – whether it’s producing videos, taking photos of themselves, or otherwise stepping up to the plate and claiming their awesome-ness, but they may lack the confidence in themselves, how they look, or how they present themselves to the world. And that, my fierce tribe, is what is preventing many amazing women in business from making the impact they were destined to make on the world.

Today, my guest is Colette Werden. Colette is an expert at helping passionate, purpose-driven women entrepreneurs and professionals “get visible.” She is the founder and CEO of Colette Werden Australia, an authentic personal branding expert, and a keynote speaker. Her company specializes in helping driven entrepreneurs and professionals present themselves authentically and with confidence so they can make the unique difference in their businesses, their organizations, and the world.

In today’s episode, Colette shares her insight and knowledge on the inner work that many driven female entrepreneurs and professionals in business need to do to put themselves “out there” – even as an introvert. She shares how our wardrobe often effects not only the way we think and feel about ourselves on a personal level, but also how we present ourselves to the world and build our businesses on a professional level.

 

“What we wear on the outside is a direct reflection of who we are on the inside.” – Colette Werden

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Using your wardrobe to connect with your clientele – and promote high self-esteem.
  • Evolving your wardrobe style as you continue to evolve personally and professionally.
  • Colette’s “Ratio System,” what it is, and how she uses it to help her clients.
  • Her biggest turning points while building her business.
  • The biggest challenges she has faced while building her business.
  • How she overcame her natural introverted thoughts and behaviors to put herself “out there.”

 

Colette’s Top 3 Success Factors:

  1. Commitment to purpose.
  2. Celebrating milestones and being naturally high-achieving.
  3. Going “all-in” on who she is.

Daniela Tixi is the founder and CEO of Strategic HR Asset and the President of the Toronto chapter of the M&A Club of Canada. Her business offers human resources solutions and business advisory to prepare businesses for long-term success. She is a master of company culture and inspires employees to live the mission and vision of the brand using a business-first, human resources-second philosophy in her work.

Today, Daniela shares lessons she has learned from her experiences of running a business internationally and insight into the art of the deal. She emphasizes why it is important to make human resources decisions from a business standpoint first and explains how much of her HR work mirrors the process of mergers and acquisitions. She also shares the strategies she used to get HR representation at the decision-making table.

 

“If HR can focus on building a compelling place to work, they will be building a compelling place to shop, get a service from, whatever that company offers - which in turn, is going to be a compelling place to invest.” - Daniela Tixi

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why her approach to human resources is not the norm.
  • How she knew social media would change HR.
  • Why she believes it is important to apply marketing and sales principles internally.
  • Why it’s important to make HR decisions as a business person first and then as an HR specialist.
  • Why she decided to leave the corporate world and start her own
  • How she transforms organizations using human capital strategies.
  • Why she likens HR work to working on mergers and acquisitions.
  • The most important thing a company can do to maintain high performance of its teams through a merger and acquisition or period of disruptive growth.
  • The success strategies she recommends for midlevel HR employees to be successful and innovative in the field.
  • How she made changes in the boardroom to give human resources a seat at the decision-making table.
  • Why her forecasts were more accurate than the CFOs.
  • Why building credibility and relationships are key for HR personnel to become a true partner in the business.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “The most important thing is to make all the HR decisions first as a business person, then as an HR strategic specialist.” - Daniela Tixi
  • “You need to stay agile. You need to stay really open-minded and you need to have a very good understanding of the industry and how the industry is affecting the workers and the market.” - Daniela Tixi
  • “If an HR decision doesn’t lead to business growth, don’t even consider it.” - Daniela Tixi

Goal-setting is one of the essential processes that do you as a leader to set the course toward achieving the vision that you have for yourself and your organization. While many leaders have grand images of what they want for their businesses, many either don’t have the right goals on their list or don’t know how to set them up for success. If there is a clear link between your goals and your achievements, you want to make sure you’re spending the time, money, and effort to execute the right intentions.

Today, I’m explaining the difference between your goals and your vision and the connection between these two different concepts. I also describe each of the three distinct goal-setting processes that can help you set the right goals for your business and your career, share practical examples to illustrate each one, and point out how these methods are linked to one another.

 

Learning how to set effective goals is the core psychological skill of high performance.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Explaining the 100 One’s Concept and how to do it
  • One of the hardest questions to answer when setting goals
  • Applying the Intention, Attention, Out-tention Principle
  • Describing the Quarterly Critical Approach
  • Why people get stuck
  • How the Daily Three Method works

 

Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • Read your 100 Ones as often as possible.
  • Don’t just think about the business you’re in, but also nurture the business you’re becoming.
  • The most significant successes happen when you link your daily activities to your Quarterly Critical goals.

Have you ever spent time, energy, and passion to create a new piece of content, marketing material, or strategy only to find someone else has copied your work and promoted it as their own? Discovering someone else has copied you can be frustrating! But many people believe the misconception that copying is flattering - that copying someone else's work or ideas is a common occurrence throughout the business world.

 

The “Rob and Duplicate” concept can significantly impact the way others perceive you, your company, and your brand. It can be detrimental to the impact you want to make in the world and can significantly tarnish your reputation.

 

On today’s episode, I explain the three reasons why people may copy your work, what you can do if you catch yourself copying someone else’s ideas, and how to protect yourself against copycats. I explain the difference between copying and modeling and how you can identify when you are copying someone else or simply modeling their process or idea. I also share how I handled a copycat situation last year when I realized my work was being copied by someone else.

 

“If you are truly being uniquely you - if you are truly on a mission to become preeminent in your space - you cannot be preeminent and copy other people.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The benefits and drawbacks of creating new things based on your ideas and knowledge.
  • The primary reason high-performers copy others.
  • How “Robbing and Duplicating” can hurt your business or career.
  • How copying others can impact your reputation.
  • My experience with dealing with copycats.
  • The importance of identifying when you are copying someone else.
  • The importance of identifying why you are copying someone.
  • The difference between copying and modeling.
  • How to prevent copying other people’s work or ideas.
  • The importance of quickly moving on new ideas - instead of procrastinating.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “When you copy someone else, you will always be second-class.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “When you are being the best, truest version of yourself; when you are being most authentic and bold, it is impossible for people to copy you.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Anybody who creates things - the risk of doing that is that it could be copied. The benefit is that you get to have the impact that you are here to make.” - Eleanor Beaton

“As a leader, it’s really important to be authentic, and to be vulnerable, and to be human. I think if you’re able to tap into that focus on storytelling, it makes it so much easier to be yourself and to show up in the way that you want to.” - Gina Jeneroux

Gina Jeneroux’s 3 Steps to Harness the Power of Stories:

 

  1. Focus on the audience.
  2. Identify what success looks like in every situation.
  3. Think about the story you need to tell that links the audience to that success.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “I think that if you’ve had a really eclectic background and you’re always jumping in to work with people who have very different backgrounds from you, it means that you’re actually coming to better solutions and you’re thinking about things differently. And I think it shakes things up in a really positive, healthy way.” - Gina Jeneroux
  • “Curiosity helps you be a little bit more grounded and a little bit more zen about the things that will work out phenomenally and the things that won’t.” - Gina Jeneroux
  • “It’s not just about learning for their job or learning for their career, but even encouraging them to learn for their passions because I think passion is really critical in how you’re able to engage with people.” - Gina Jeneroux

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

  • 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?”

Tiffani Bova is a sales strategist, speaker, and the Global Customer Growth and Innovation Evangelist at Salesforce. She was recognized by the National Diversity Council as one of the Most Powerful and Influential Women in California in 2014 and Inc. Magazine recognized her as one of the 37 Sales Experts You Need to Follow on Twitter. She is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review, has recently published the book, Growth IQ: Get Smarter About the Choices that Will Make or Break Your Business, and is the host of the What’s Next! podcast.

 

 

Tiffani joins me to discuss what growth IQ means and share the ten growth paths that separate high performing businesses from those that begin experiencing a growth stall. 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 really separated the high performers was the combination of initiatives that they did in a particular sequence or order.” - Tiffani Bova

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What her upbringing in Hawaii taught her about life and business.
  • Why she calls herself a “recovering seller.”
  • Her definition of growth IQ.
  • The pattern she saw over 15 years of work that high performing companies used to grow.
  • Why combinations and sequencing are essential for growth.
  • Why she believes customer experience is the new product.
  • How to find a balance between customer experience and other growth paths.
  • How consumers and their expectations have changed.
  • Why she believes the lines between B2C and B2B have become blurred.
  • The habits and disciplines that have allowed high growth IQ companies to be customer-centric.
  • 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:

 

  1. Disrupt yourself and be open to being uncomfortable.
  2. Be a student of your profession.
  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 ready to be more courageous, focused, and FIERCE this Fall?

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.

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “If you are a woman and you own your own business, confidence is the ultimate growth strategy for you.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “One of the most insidious forms of unconscious gender bias is the tendency for people to hold back on delivering tough feedback to women.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “The best CEOs, the most high-growth women entrepreneurs that I know are deeply curious. They are on a mission. They are seekers.” - Eleanor Beaton

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.
