If you are a fan of making New Year’s resolutions or setting goals, what steps do you take to make sure you meet each item on your list? Knowing what you want to achieve is one thing. Acting on your desire to fulfill these aspirations is another.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share the three common reasons that prevent you, and many other brilliant women out there, from hitting your goals. I talk about why knowing these reasons is relevant in your business planning and preparation. I also share the significance of watching out for patterns of behavior that may hinder your progress and the impact of having a support group or community on hitting your business goals.

 

“The more personal accountability you take, the faster you hit your goals.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why learning is considered a procrastination technique
  • Explaining the Gold Stars versus Gold Bars phenomenon
  • The relationship between the Gold Stars phenomenon and people-pleasing
  • How you can connect with people who can advance your career or your business
  • Finger-pointing versus taking responsibility
  • Bonus reason for not hitting your goals

 

Top 3 Reasons Why You Won’t Hit Your Goals This Year:

  1. Too much learning. Not enough doing.
  2. Focused on looking successful over being successful.
  3. Not taking personal responsibility.

Joanna Fields used to be a professional ballerina in London until a car accident compelled her to retire in her 20s and pursue an entirely new career.

Dec 19, 2017

A meeting happening behind the closed boardroom door is not “just” an exchange of ideas or a lecture from the boss. It is where you announce astounding news. It is where you create strategic game-changers. It is where you make life-changing decisions. If you already have a seat at the table, it is imperative to ask yourself why no one listens to you. Having a seat at the table without having your own voice is as good as not having a seat at all.

 

Since having a seat at the table is different from having a strong voice, today, I’m going to share the top three reasons why people are not listening to you in meetings. I talk about how you get your message across even in the toughest meeting styles, share easy-to-implement advice on how to have your voice heard, and teach you how you can show up powerfully in a meeting.

 

“If you can’t show up powerfully in a meeting, you are losing credibility, opportunity, and influence without even knowing it.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why it is important to let others hear what you have to say
  • How women view meetings according to research
  • Struggles women have concerning participating in meetings
  • How the wrong belief that women are not in the position to speak up stops them from speaking their minds
  • The significance of blunt feedback in your career growth
  • What linguistic style is and examples of its different forms
  • The lifeblood of having a spotless reputation that precedes you

 

Top 3 Reasons Why Brilliant Women Struggle to be Heard:

 

  1. You’re not sharing them.
  2. You aren’t getting blunt feedback on your meeting style.
  3. Your linguistic style is out of sync with the people whom you need to impress or impact around the table.

Dec 7, 2017

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.

Dec 5, 2017

I used to believe that I’m more of a words person than a numbers person. As the CEO of my business, I had to discipline myself to like numbers, so I can have a better understanding of our day to day operations and be more equipped in making critical and wise financial decisions for my company, whether it’s investing on new software or a new team member.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share five lessons I have learned from reviewing my 2017 books. I also share how I disciplined myself to become a numbers person and the things you need to create a business in the learning and development industry that’s scalable and financially-rewarding.

 

“Stop talking. Stop dreaming. Start doing.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How often I track sales and review financials
  • Why you should pay close attention to the relationship between your revenue and expenses
  • How long before you see a return on investment
  • Payoffs of living modestly
  • Why you should invest in a team for the support you need
  • Why work with a great coach and community
  • How to trust the process
