On Todays Episode….. 

We’re discussing 5 “good girl” habits to break in order to unleash your true power as a leader. Ready to dive in? Let’s go: 

 

5 Good Girl Habits to Break 

Habit #1: Finishing your to-do list.  

As you advance, you will almost always have more complex tasks on your to-do list than you can possibly complete.  

Leadership is not about completing your to-do list, it is about deciding what on your to-do list you are going to bring the force of your attention to this day. 

Habit #2: Feeling the need to answer every question.  

She who asks the questions has control. If you are in a conversation and someone asks you a question that threatens to derail the conversation, consider responding with a question. 

Habit #3: Treating everyone equally.  

Triage your meeting requests according to those that line up most powerfully with your priorities. 

Habit #4: Respecting authority.  

Respect your own intentions, and self worth. 

Habit #5: Not playing hooky.  

Give yourself permission once and a while to play hooky. It will do wonders for your creativity. 

 

Helpful tips 

If you have another good girl habit that you want to break this year, I encourage you to let us know what it is. You can send us an email at eleanor@eleanorbeaton.com. While you are at it, I highly suggest that you head over to elearnobeaton.com/successpack and download my fierce success pack. This is my e-book Success Secrets of Fierce Women in Business + 5 interviews with power house women in business who can give you great insight on how to advance your career and grow your business to the 7-figure mark in the end.

As entrepreneurs, there are dozens of danger zones we face while growing our businesses. Facing these danger zones head on and figuring out a way to overcome these obstacles are critical for building a successful, profitable business.

But what some entrepreneurs may not realize is that female entrepreneurs often face a variety of different challenges and obstacles than our male counterparts when it comes to building and running a successful business.

On today’s episode, I explain the biggest danger zone for women entrepreneurs and how to deal with it. I explain the importance of creating a strategic growth plan for female entrepreneurs, the difference between working with a male business coach and a female business coach, and why it’s crucial for female entrepreneurs to work with female business coaches. I also share a sneak peek into how I work with powerhouse clients to achieve their goals and explain the difference between creating a ‘stable business plan’ versus a ‘strategic growth plan.’

 

“The biggest danger zone for women entrepreneurs happens when you try to drive too many goals forward at once.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The number one danger zone for female entrepreneurs.
  • How my clients reach their revenue goals year after year.
  • Why it’s crucial to understand the “math” side of the business from a strategic point of view.
  • The simplest growth strategy you can implement to achieve the next level in your business.
  • The difference between working with female business coaches versus male business coaches.
  • What an Ascension Offer is.
  • A sneak peek into what it’s like to work with me and the kind of results you can expect.
  • The difference between a Growth Plan and a Stable Plan.
  • How we vet new potential clients to ensure our services are best suited for your needs.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “In order for a woman to really share her message, she needs a platform of her own.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “People who want to grow are not growing, and it’s typically because they’re trying to do way too many things.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Women have an ‘inside game’ that looks very different from the inside game that a lot of male entrepreneurs are going to have.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “You’ve got to be ready to advance and take action.” - Eleanor Beaton

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

With great power comes great responsibility. There are tremendous obligations that go with being a leader and influencer in your industry. Part of these obligations includes sharing your ideas through public speaking. Like any other role, it is crucial that you equip yourself with the skills that will allow you to be the best powerhouse woman you were always meant to be.

On today’s episode, I share two tips that public speaking programs usually do not offer, but will empower you to become a powerful and high impact speaker. I discuss some techniques and tricks you will learn when working with a voice coach or enroll in a public speaking program as well as how to have fluidity and command over your voice. I also explain the significance of having mastery over the material that you will be speaking about and share strategies to help you gain the content mastery you need to become a powerful, high impact speaker.

  

“What allows you to truly have mastery over your content and the kind of content that’s going to make you a great speaker and presenter, and truly articulate in the moment is to publish.”  - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Two unique skills to practice to develop into a powerful speaker
  • A great exercise on how to practice speaking without fillers
  • A significant matter many public speaking programs overlook
  • One of the best ways to become a persuasive speaker and presenter
  • The relevance of publishing content to become a great public speaker

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Every time you want to say “uhm” or “ah,” discipline yourself to simply pause.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “You don’t get mastery over content by reading and researching.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “The more content you create in your area of expertise, that’s how you truly master a topic - not by reading - by communicating and publishing.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Position Yourself in a Category of ONE

One of the most common questions people ask is, “What do you do?” Many entrepreneurs don’t have an answer ready since you don’t likely have a well-defined job description as a business owner. Or if you have a job description prepared, how sure are you that your reply is short enough to be remembered but also long enough to include all the necessary information there is to know about what you do?

On this episode, I’m going to talk about the importance of knowing and nailing your one-liner. I’m going to share what a one-liner is designed to do, its uses and significance, and the three key components to remember when crafting a one-liner.

 

“If you can’t have a strong voice to advocate for who you are, what you believe in, what you do, and the value you bring to this world, how can you expect other people to see it if you can’t articulate it?.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What a one-liner is
  • Why you don’t want to have a complicated one-liner
  • Why it’s essential to include who your target market is in your one-liner
  • How to paint a picture in the mind of people
  • How to create space for questions as you focus on the result
  • Examples of one-liners

 

Tips for Creating a One-Liner:

  1. Identify your target market.
  2. Select a core message and use word pictures.
  3. Make things a little more mysterious by describing the result, not the process.

Have you ever experienced feeling energized and invigorated after spending time with positive and driven people? I certainly do! And you know what -- my family relations, as well as my business, blossomed because of it. Here’s the best part -- it can happen to you, too!


This energy that flows from working with and being around uplifting people can and will invigorate you in ways that both your personal and professional life will benefit tremendously. Why choose feeling burnout when you can have a lucrative business and live a free life as you work with high-end clients?

On today’s episode, I discuss why high-end is the only way to go for you in 2019. I share some teachings that I typically only offer privately to my entrepreneur clients as well as some insights you can use right now on how to attract high-end clients while setting yourself apart from the competition. I also discuss the kind of people to invest your gifts into and how it dramatically impacts your quality of life, both personally and professionally.

 

 

“Choosing who gets to benefit from your work is the single most important decision that you make in your business.”  - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The downside of having your WHY as the compass of your business.
  • Why you should sit down and calculate your most profitable and enjoyable offerings.
  • The factors that allowed a small business owner to grow her revenue by 150% in only 12 months.
  • How you can attract high-end and powerful clients this year.
  • The downside of being in the Category of Many.
  • How the Preeminence Strategy works.
  • Advantages of being in a category of one, personally and professionally.
  • What it is that makes a client high-end.
  • What drives high-end clients.
  • What simplified money is and how to attract it?
  • Why money is wasted if you don’t have your positioning in place.
  • How to get and land smart, high-end clients.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “The organizing principle that’s going to contribute most toward having a lucrative business - that truly sets you free and truly sets you up for financial independence to generate and accumulate wealth - is to focus on the WHO.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Take control of your personal brand. Take control of your reputation and intentionally and authentically place yourself in a Category of One where you don’t have competition.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “When you’re in a Category of One, you’re seen as the ONLY choice.” - Eleanor Beaton

Women often look for signs before making a life-changing move in their businesses or careers. One of the signs that we look for is the permission or approval from the people around them. While there are many reasons for delaying that big leap, refusing to take action while waiting for the approval or permission of others has led several highly ambitious women to suffer significantly -- wasting their time and effort when they could have been spending it on something that would help them thrive in their career.

Today, I am discussing how if you say you are ready for the next big leap in your career - then you are ready. I’ll also share the phenomenon that many women succumb to by believing the lie that they are not ready yet as well as the four signs to look for to identify if you are set to make that much-awaited change in your professional life.

 

“Don’t wait for your suffering to become greater than your fear. Do it anyway. Feel the fear and do it anyway.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The problem that prevents you from taking things on
  • Possible causes of the fear to accept new challenges
  • The circumstances that push women to make an overdue change
  • What the “loathing scale” is and how to use it to assess if it’s time to make a change

 

Signs That You Are Ready to Make the Leap:

  1. You are experiencing a level of frustration that just won’t quit.
  2. You are five or above on the loathing scale, and you’ve been there too long.
  3. You are dreading work and have low energy when you’re there.
  4. You feel smarter and more capable than the people around you.

 

Resources Mentioned:

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • ”One of the ways that we allow our fear to get the best of us is by looking for external signs of approval.”
  • “If you are waiting for permission to unlock your potential for success, you’re going to be waiting a long time because that permission has to start with you.”
  • “Stop outsourcing permission to take the leap. That permission has got to start with you.”

Taking the business to the next level is always one of the objectives of passionate and thriving entrepreneurs. To do this effectively, you need to be mindful about how and where you spend your precious time. Keeping the big picture in mind, you have to be honest with yourself about the tasks you need to focus on as well as the ones you need to let go of and delegate to others so you can zero in on your expertise and continue being the visionary your company needs you to be.


On today’s episode, I discuss the nine things in my business that I consistently delegate so I can accomplish more in less time. I share how delegating these tasks impacts my productivity and business operation. I also talk about the different tools and strategies that my team and I use so we can all work together while keeping our eye on the prize of moving forward and reaching the next level for the business.

 

“You can’t just outsource. You’ve got to keep an eye on things.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How I effectively delegate the creation of slide decks while keeping my original content.
  • Tools I use for booking meetings and appointments.
  • Examples of logistical details you can assign to others.
  • Examples of original content to create for social media re-purposing.
  • Different ways to re-purpose original content you create.
  • Back-end tasks to leave to the experts.
  • Delegating email communications to get out of email jail.
  • Delegating travel and appointment booking tasks.
  • Why investing in a designer is a significant and important investment to make.

 

 

Resources Mentioned:

  

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • ” If your brand is sort of more high-end, taking that extra time or making that extra investment to invest in working with a designer who can really help you make your stuff look good.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Everything looks doable three months, four months, five months out until you get there.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “It’s really important that your organizational strategies change particularly when you start outsourcing things like bookings.” - Eleanor Beaton

As entrepreneurs and fierce feminine leaders, making mistakes and facing failures can sometimes be excruciatingly painful. But in order to continue to learn, grow, and achieve the success we truly deserve, facing your fears and learning from your mistakes is critical for continuing to grow.

If you’re not experimenting, making mistakes, and experiencing failure, then you’re not thinking big enough to break through the glass ceiling to achieve your next level of success.

 

On today’s episode, I share how making mistakes and experiencing failure encourages a growth mindset. I share why many fierce feminine leaders are afraid of experimenting, making mistakes, and experiencing failure and how this fear prevents them from achieving their success goals. I also explain why it’s critical to measure your success as a fierce business owner based on the validated learnings you have acquired and how it helps you make better decisions to move your business forward.

 

 

“When you acquire validated learnings - that is really the key to the kingdom.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How avoiding mistakes and failures impacts your ability to learn and grow.
  • Why mistakes and failures are critical for thinking bigger.
  • The importance of taking risks and experimenting.
  • The impact that internalized perfection can have on your growth as a female entrepreneur.
  • What is validated learning?
  • How measuring validated learning metrics impacts your ability to make smarter business decisions.
  • The relationship between acquiring validated learnings and thinking in math, not in drama.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “If you are growing, and you are not making mistakes and experiencing the sharp pain of failure from time to time - you are in trouble.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Learning is painful. It really can hurt sometimes - experimenting can hurt sometimes. Failure hurts - but it is so critical.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “The amount of validated learning you acquire needs to be one of your core metrics of success moving forward if you want to create long-term, sustainable success.” - Eleanor Beaton

Happy Thanksgiving! Since this is a great time to give thanks and express gratitude, you can take advantage of this festive mood to thank the people in your life.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share six fun, out-of-the-box ways to express gratitude to those you care about. These people can be your family, friends, clients, or employees. I also explain what makes each approach unique and share some practical ways on how you can execute each one effectively.

 

“If you really want to express gratitude to somebody, make it count.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Making unexpected gratitude phone calls
  • How to send audio emails
  • Sending bouquets of flowers

We live in a world of increasing uncertainty. This uncertainty is primarily due to how quickly various situations and circumstances can frequently change. It is not uncommon for fast-changing environments to quickly lead fierce feminine leaders to begin feeling overwhelmed and start harboring limiting beliefs, negative self-talk, and paralyzing doubts.

 

So, how do you curb feeling overwhelmed and develop a strategic plan of action when faced with significant uncertainty and increasing change?

 

By thinking and making decisions from a place of solid math rather than a place of high-drama.

 

On today’s episode, I discuss what it means to think in math instead of drama and how focusing on drama can negatively impact your ability to scale your business. I explain how identifying and reviewing your results and revenue can help you take strategic action when faced with uncertainty. I also discuss the importance of finding a balance between innovation and focusing on what’s already working well for you and your business.

 

 

 

“When in doubt - think in math, not in drama.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How focusing on the math can increase your impact - and your revenue.
  • Identifying the high-income activities in your business and doubling down on them.
  • Finding a balance between innovation, and learning new skills, and focusing on what’s already working in your business.
  • What it means to be a student of your results.
  • Identifying your highest value in the marketplace.
  • How focusing on the numbers can help you make better decisions and overcome limiting beliefs, self-doubt, and negative self-talk.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “Leadership is essentially the art of creating certainty and direction out of massive uncertainty.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “So many of the problems and confusions that we experience in business is so much simpler when we start looking at things through the lens of math.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “You’ve got to be a student of what’s actually working for you. The best way to be a student of what’s working for you is to take out that trusty calculator.” - Eleanor Beaton

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

Many fierce feminine leaders spend so much time focusing on their future goals and ambitions - creating the strategy that will take their businesses or careers to the next level to achieve success. And while being future-focused is certainly important - there are many other factors that contribute to achieving your goals, realizing your dreams, and improving your chances of success.

 

On today’s episode, I explain how being too future-focused can impact your success. I explain how debriefing can help you improve your chances of achieving your goals and realizing your dreams. I also explain why many fierce leaders often overlook the importance of disciplining themselves to spend time debriefing, how it can help you learn and grow as a leader, and how it can help you make changes and improvements to take your career to the next level.

 

 

 

The discipline of the debrief is a really critical success factor that many future-oriented leaders overlook.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What it means to be disciplined to debriefing.
  • What the concept of ‘the debrief’ is.
  • How debriefing can help you identify what’s working, what’s not working, and create an action plan to help you move forward.
  • When you should spend time debriefing.
  • How debriefing impacts your chances of success.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “If you don’t debrief, you’re really missing out on a powerful opportunity to learn and improve.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Never overlook the discipline of the debrief.” - Eleanor Beaton

Are there things in your life, business, or career that you want to achieve, but require you to step out of your comfort zone? You know what you need to do, but you’re not comfortable with doing it – so you don’t.

When we get right down to it – most of us have the same desires. We want to be financially secure, healthy and have great relationships with those around us, but what really makes us unique are the challenges that we face and the difficulties we are willing to deal with.

Ladies, it’s time for a little tough love. Today, I want to talk to you about the importance of picking your pain – and doing it wisely.

 

All too often, it’s not the scale of our dreams that undoes us. It’s the pain that we choose.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why women often don’t step out of their comfort zone.
  • Common ways women avoid leaving their comfort zone to achieve their desires.
  • Going after what you want won’t be painless, but can often be more rewarding.

One of the most common fears that prevent truly amazing entrepreneurs from stepping into their power and breaking the glass ceiling is their fear of bothering or “annoying” people when it comes to marketing and sales. They fall for the misconception that if they market their products or services as much as they think they should - they will begin to annoy their audience and potentially “dry up” their sales funnel.

 

On today’s episode, I share why it is critical for entrepreneurs to get over their fear of bothering or annoying others. I explain how the fear of annoying people can actually hold you back from achieving your goals and the importance of understanding that how people feel about what you do to market your business is truly none of your business. I also explain how giving in to the fear of annoying others can impact your ability to communicate effectively and sufficiently as well as why it is critical to consistently promote your business to achieve the success you deserve.

 

 

 

“The fear of annoying others can absolutely hold you back, as an entrepreneur, from being able to communicate effectively and sufficiently with people.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How the fear of bothering people can hold you back from achieving the next level of success.
  • How your fear of annoying others impacts your ability to communicate effectively and sufficiently with others.
  • The importance of understanding that how people feel about what you do isn’t your business.
  • Why it is critical for entrepreneurs to market consistently.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “When you are worried about annoying people, you are placing the needs and feelings of the 2% over the masses.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “If someone is annoyed with you - it is not your business.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “The biggest enemy of most entrepreneurs is obscurity.” - Eleanor Beaton

On This Episode of Fierce Feminine Leadership...

How willing are you to engage in politics in the workplace?  Bonnie Marcus, author of the Politics of Promotion and international speaker says that learning to successfully embrace and navigate workplace politics can give you the leg up that you need when it comes to reaching success.

More About Bonnie Marcus

  • Bonnie has 25-years of experience in corporate America.
  • Bonnie’s wake-up call came early on in her career she was passed over for a promotion because she didn’t position herself properly.
  • Politics of Promotion arose from a keynote Bonnie did called “Anatomy of a Blindside”
  • She has spoken at major events such as; the Dynamic Women in Business Conference at Harvard, the MIT Sloan School of Management, and the Massachusetts Conference for Women.

 

It takes more than great performance to get ahead in business. You need to know how to position yourself, build advocates and build influence across the organization.

 

How can you increase your political savvy?

  • Build a relationship with yourself- take the time to understand how you and your work contributes and adds value to the organization. This is the foundation for you to promote yourself and build influence across the organization.
    • Own your ambition- recognize what it takes to move your career forward and make decisions that support your ambition going forward.
  • Develop an awareness of what is going on around you and what your organization and bosses are trying to achieve
  • Build a network in a strategic way- It’s not only about who is in your network, but it’s also very important that you are selective in how you spend your time. Consider:
    • How powerful is each person in your network?
    • And how strong is your relationship with each of those people?
    • How you can build visibility with the powerful players?
    • Do the people in your network understand how you bring value to the organization?
  • Understand the dynamics of your organization. How are decisions made, who makes the decisions, & who influences the decisions?
    • What does it take to get ahead in your company?
      • Have there been other women who have reached leadership roles? did they have relationships with
      • What kind of assignments did they get?
      • Did they have a sponsor, a mentor, and or a coach?
      • What was their executive presence like?
    • What kind of behavior is condoned in your organization?

 

What can companies do to retain female talent?

  • The underlying problem isn’t addressed- women don’t necessarily want to leave work when they have small children or when they have elderly parents to care for, but they have little choice because there is little flexibility in corporate America to understand and support women throughout the entirety of their career.
  • Don’t make assumptions about what women want and need, ASK them what they need to be successful.
  • Individual women and their companies need to identify ambitious women who want a long-term career and then have an individualized career track that the leaders in their company will be held accountable for.

What separates the high-performing leaders from the average performers? What actions do celebrity stars like Beyonce and NFL superstar Tom Brady take to ensure they perform at the highest levels? If there was one thing you could do to ensure your success as a fierce feminine leader - what would it be?

Practice.

On today’s episode, I share why practicing your leadership skills is critical for becoming a high-performing leader. I explain why learning a new skill or starting a new business or project can put you at a higher risk of throwing in the towel and giving up. I also explain the difference between complex skills and component skills, the importance of identifying your key component skills, and share strategies to help you practice - and master - your component skills.

  

“When you think about high-performers - they spend a ton of time practicing their skills.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What separates high-performers from average performers.
  • Why it’s critical to practice new skills.
  • The difference between complex skills and component skills.
  • The importance of identifying and practicing your key component skills.
  • How breaking complex skills into simpler skills helps you improve.
  • The importance of setting small, actionable weekly goals.
  • The importance of overestimating the time it will take to practice a new skill.
  • The importance of working with a coach, mentor, or advisor.
  • How being attached to results and ROI impacts your performance.
  • The importance of staying in-tune with the “beginner’s mindset” as you practice new skills.

 

 

5 Steps to Improve Your Component Skills:

  1. Identify your high-performance inputs.
  2. Break complex skills into simpler component skills.
  3. Set quick-hit process goals.
  4. Overestimate the time required.
  5. Practice with a devoted coach.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “You’ve got to sharpen the saw. Practice, practice, practice.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “In our world of frenzied action, it is so easy to underestimate the time that we need to prepare and plan.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “When you’re moving into a new level of leadership; when you’re moving into a new level of growth; when you’re looking to master a new skill set - that attachment to results and ROI actually impedes your ability to grow - and your performance.” - Eleanor Beaton

Have you ever had the experience of having things go really well in your life and career, but you begin to obsess over when the other shoe will drop? This feeling - the feeling that things are too good to be true, that something bad is bound to happen - is common. It’s called The Upper Limit Phenomenon, and it often impacts high-performing fierce feminine leaders.

Today, I explain The Upper Limit Phenomenon and how it impacts fierce feminine leaders. I explain how it can manifest itself in your business and relationships and how it can prevent you from achieving your next level of success. I also explain how your upper limit problem is often connected to your limiting beliefs and share strategies to help you overcome them.

 

 

 

“The Upper Limit Problem can be a really sneaky thing that kicks in when you are in the middle of jumping into a new and elevated level of leadership and success in your life.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • How the upper limit problem often manifests itself in your life and career.
  • How the upper limit phenomenon can prevent you from reaching your next level of success.
  • The connection between your limiting beliefs and the upper limit problem.
  • How to overcome your upper limit problem.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “The upper limit problem is a phenomenon that happens where we have an inner thermostat that governs just how happy we can be, how successful we can be, and how wealthy we can be.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Take time to reflect on what stories or limiting beliefs you currently have that are holding you back from truly enjoying the success and abundance that is out there for you.” - Eleanor Beaton

My aunt – Linda Davies, a 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.

Women have been successful in moving into the middle management positions within their companies and organizations, but despite the number of women’s initiative events, social gatherings, and conferences, the number of women in senior leadership roles has barely moved over the last few decades. Many women initiative event organizers host events that provide little more than a way for the group of women within their organizations to gather, chat, and network with each other.

How do you invigorate the female leaders in your organization? What can you do to truly support and help the women in your company grow and develop new skills to advance in their careers?

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you a few powerful tips that I use when working with businesses and organizations hosting women’s initiative events. These powerful tips can help any organization ramp up their program and empower their female leaders to step into their power and achieve their true potential within their organization.

 

“If you are going to bring people together, it’s got to be more than just a networking event.”

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why organizations should train women on how to deal with unconscious gender bias.
  • Why the CEO and men in senior leadership roles should also attend women’s initiative events.
  • When it comes to diversity inclusion, there is no such thing as one and done.

 

3 Tips to Invigorate Your Women’s Initiative Events:

  1. Ensure the programming supports your women to overcome unconscious gender bias.
  2. Involve your senior leadership in the programming – especially the men.
  3. Make it part of a more comprehensive program.

Do you ever feel invisible in your organization? Despite all of the positive work you do to help your company move the needle toward achieving its goals and the impact you are making on your company’s strategic direction - perhaps you’re not achieving your personal, professional goals and ambitions. Perhaps you’re getting overlooked for promotions in positions you feel you’re highly qualified for, have the skills necessary to succeed, and can really help you shine as a fierce leader.

 

On today’s episode, I discuss the three fallacies that hold many fierce feminine leaders back from advancing their careers and getting promoted to powerful positions in their organizations. I explain why promotions aren’t always based on your abilities, skills, and qualifications and what you can do to stand out. I also explain the importance of owning your accomplishments instead of seeking validation, how to effectively and strategically communicate your accomplishments to those in a position of power, and why you - fierce one - need to take control over your professional development, career advancement, and career trajectory.

 

“Wanting recognition - desiring it - does not mean you are a bad person. It means you are a practical person.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Common biases in place at many organizations.
  • Why promotions aren’t always based on your skills, abilities, or qualifications.
  • The importance of standing out in your organization and how it can lead to getting promoted.
  • The importance of maximizing status differences and its impact on getting promoted.
  • The difference between how men and women “stand out” in their organizations.
  • The importance of owning your accomplishments instead of seeking validation.
  • How to effectively, constructively, and strategically communicate your accomplishments.
  • How to be identified as a high-potential employee.
  • The importance of taking control of your life, your career, and your personal development.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “As a woman, sometimes our value of equality, egalitarianism, and meritocracy can sometimes hold us back from standing out.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Results don’t actually You do.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “It is the act of owning your accomplishments and strategically and constructively communicating those accomplishments - that’s the win.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Five Reasons You Didn’t Get Promoted In Your Job

Are you tired of being passed up year after year on landing the promotions of your dream? You have amazing ideas that can completely change the trajectory of your business, but somehow, you’re not achieving your next level of success and getting the next promotion that can impact your career and help you break through your glass ceiling.

If this sounds like you, join me for a 60-minute training on the five key reasons many women are often overlooked for career-advancing promotions. You’ll also learn why and how feminine ambition and drive can often be misunderstood or misinterpreted and how it can impact your promotability.

She has been responsible for a wide variety of game designs such as The Sims and Ultima Online, and is well-known for her work in applying game design strategies and techniques into online and mobile services. Amy joins me on the show today to share how she helps entrepreneurs and innovators build their products faster, smarter, and innovate successfully through “game thinking,” the characteristics of highly successful innovations, and the insight she has learned from working with these products and services that can help other innovators and entrepreneurs launch their next big idea successfully.

 

“The process looks messy, alliterative, and half-baked while you are in the middle of it, but this is how innovation happens.” – Amy Jo Kim
