Many high-achieving, highly-ambitious women find themselves frustrated with a gap in their market – something they know can be done better than what is currently available to the market today.

That’s why I created the Impact & Influence Leadership Lab for Women. This 6-week signature group coaching program was inspired out of my own frustration. A frustration of watching so many highly-ambitious, fierce feminine leaders working within large organizations or growing their own businesses, but lacking the confidence, influence, and presence they needed to really step into their power and advance their careers.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you why it is so important for women in business or corporate leadership roles to show up as confident, influential leaders. I’ll share how demonstrating your confidence and your ability to influence others can lead to career advancements, business growth, and opportunities you may have otherwise overlooked.

 

Influence, confidence, and the ability to stand out as an expert in your space is the best insurance you can have for growing your business or advancing your career.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Showing up as a confident competitor helps you gain the respect and credibility you deserve.
  • Women leaders need to be strategic in their networking skills to advance their careers and grow their businesses.
  • When you lack confidence, influence, and presence – you miss opportunities to grow as a female leader.
  • Why it’s important to engage in politics and how a lack of willingness to engage in politics can derail your career.
  • What you’ll get by registering for my Signature 6-week group coaching program.
  • How this program has helped other Fierce Feminine Leaders advance their careers, grow their businesses, and expand their network.

It’s inauguration week in the United States – the week when the new President of the United States is sworn into the Oval Office. As the soon-to-be former President and First Lady prepare to leave the White House, I think back on the many accomplishments this powerhouse couple have achieved over their 8-year tenure – particularly, Michelle Obama.

Despite whether you agree with her politics, or the politics of President Barak Obama, Michelle Obama’s career is filled with valuable leadership lessons for women in business. Today, I’m going to share with you some of the important lessons I have learned from simply observing how she has lead initiatives – from her work in combatting childhood obesity and supporting veterans to her powerful speeches during the 2011 election. By simply observing her career, we can learn many valuable lessons that can help us be more effective in any negotiation, in any boardroom, or in any speech we give throughout 2017.

 

When you have the room – allow yourself to own it.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Resist the urge to play small to gain the acceptance of others.
  • Remember: your career is a marathon – not a sprint.
  • When you are ready to step back into the game after a career hiatus – or are faced with a big, bold opportunity – leverage it for all it’s worth!
  • Fun and lightheartedness is a powerful tool to unite your team, drive great results, and ultimately create a knockout culture.
  • Authenticity, integrity, and hope are what characterized Michelle Obama’s tenure. Her values are what people will remember her for.

 

Top 5 Leadership Lessons from Michelle Obama:

  1. Don’t apologize for being confident.
  2. Embrace the times when your career must take a back seat.
  3. Know how to own the room.
  4. Fun is a powerful leadership skill.
  5. Know your values.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Sort out your relationship with your own personal power.
  • Decide when you need to allow your professional life to take a back seat to meet the needs of your family.
  • Know when to leverage great opportunities and allow yourself to own the room.
  • Create a fun, light-hearted working atmosphere.
  • Know your sense of certainty (and uncertainty).

My aunt – Linda Davies, former investment banker who moved on to become an internationally best-selling author of financial thrillers for adults and adventure story author for young adults, has been an amazingly Fierce Feminine Leader that I have looked up to as a young adult and entrepreneur. If you’ve listened to the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast for a while, you may remember my interview with Linda in Episode 29, where she shared her story and we discussed taking risks in your life, your business, and your career.

Aunt Linda has taught me many valuable lessons. One of the most impactful lessons I have learned is how powerful the words I use to describe myself are, and why it’s important to be ruthlessly loving with the words you use to describe yourself.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you how to be ruthlessly loving with your words and how learning this skill can positively impact your mindset, your life, your business, and your career.

 

Your words are so powerful.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How the words you use to describe yourself, your business, or your career can impact your sense of achievement and success.
  • As a leader, it is critically important that you face the truth – but don’t undermine yourself with your own words.
  • Identify the difference between what is true and what your intentions are for improvement.
  • When you undermine yourself with your own words, you not only break trust with yourself – you also subtly erode the confidence that other people have in you.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Understand that your words are powerful.
  • Notice the words you use to describe yourself.
  • Reframe your words in a way that is resourceful and loving.

writer of the new Netflix Originals hit series – OA – lead an interesting career journey. After graduating from Georgetown University, Brit Marling carved a path to become an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. She quickly realized, though, that she was setting herself up for a career she didn’t want.

Lead actress and screen

She decided to pivot her career and move into the acting arena. Frustrated by the lack of roles for actresses wanting to play complex, 3-dimensional characters, she decided to learn to become a screenwriter. That’s when her career became hugely successful!

Her success is packed with valuable lessons for every woman in business that is looking for a way to redefine their success and power. In today’s episode, I’m going to break down a few of the lessons we can take away from Brit’s successful career pivot.

 

You are the CEO of your own career. It goes down the way you say.”

  • Why you should stop waiting for other people or opportunities to come to you.
  • How investing in your own learning and development can significantly impact your success.
  • If you have grit and are able to be strategic, there are always ways to make your dream opportunity come true.
  • Why leveraging the connections in your network is critical.
  • A sense of urgency is important, but results require patience.

 

Top 5 Leadership Lessons from Actress Brit Marling:

  1. Create your own opportunities.
  2. Learn to sell your ideas.
  3. Don’t be afraid to pivot.
  4. Don’t forget about your older networks.
  5. Great work and success takes

Welcome to the last episode of the Fierce Feminine Leadership podcast for 2016! As we wrap up the year, I want to discuss an important topic for you to think about as you are planning your 2017 path to success – gender bias. What is gender bias? Is it still alive and well in today’s working world?

Absolutely.

Unfortunately, despite the incredible strides women in business have made over the past several years, gender bias is still a major part of our work, culture, and society. The beast still lives and breathes – it’s just harder to spot.

Today, I’m going to talk about what gender bias looks like in today’s working society, and how, although things are getting better at the middle-management level – top-level positions within many organizations still have plenty of room for improvement.

 

“When the ‘solutions’ for a problem are the problem themselves – that’s how you know that gender bias is alive and well”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • In the upper echelons of power, things are not changing much for female leaders.
  • Gender bias has morphed into a nuanced phenomenon that has become harder to notice.
  • Women make up approximately 50% of Silicon Valley law firm associates – but only 17% of their equity partners.
  • Women make up only 4.6% of the CEOs of the S&P 500.
  • There’s been a lot of movement at the middle-leadership levels, but the number of women in senior management positions have hardly moved in over 20 years.
  • Women have the choice to build the skills they need to navigate the broken system. Don’t mistake this for a fixed
