Susan Richards is an entrepreneur, accountant, and the Co-Founder of two highly successful businesses - Numbercrunch, Inc., and Givopoly. Numbercrunch is a forward-thinking accounting support company focused on helping startups and small and mid-sized enterprises manage their business finances through Virtual CFO, accounting, and bookkeeping services.

In 2012, she founded Givopoly, an online gift delivery marketplace in Ottawa, Canada that provides local customers and organizations with cost-effective, fun Employee Rewards and Recognition products. Susan has previously served on the boards of several organizations, including the CMA of Ontario, Equal Voice, and the Advisory Board for Algonquin College. Today, she is a proud volunteer on the Board of Directors for the Invest Ottawa and Bayview Yards as well as an advisor at AmbiSHEOus.

Susan joins me today to share how she pursued her personal interests while working in an organization, the lessons she learned throughout her childhood about entrepreneurship, and how Numbercrunch and Givopoly initially began. She explains the difference between “growth mode” and “expansion mode” as it relates to building your business and how she finds balances her time, energy and creativity while juggling her career and personal life. She also explains why she believes it's critical for more women to have a seat at the boardroom tables and what we need to do to help women achieve this goal.

 

“There is absolutely an open mind to getting women on boards. What there isn’t is a nudge.” - Susan Richards

  2. Give a lot of thought to your business model.
  3. Serve a need - not a want.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Kill it at the job you’re doing. Make yourself so valuable to that company that they will give you more and more trust. You can be the role you want to be in that organization.” - Susan Richards
  • “I came to the realization that if I’m going to do intense professional - I need to do intense personal. It all kind of balances against each other.” - Susan Richards
  • “There are great organizations now that are helping to train women and make them aware of large board positions, but in parallel to that, we can just tap each other on the shoulders and get us in the right room and make people aware.” - Susan Richards

Magazine, and The Huffington Post has named her as The Most Inspiring Woman of the World.

 

Lolly joins me today to share her story and provide practical strategies on how fierce feminine leaders can explore their leadership gaps to step into their power and lead from within. She also shares ways for you to leverage your “impostor syndrome” to improve your leadership skills and describes her “leadership archetypes”.

 

 

“Striving for perfection is striving to fail.” - Lolly Daskal

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why discipline and routines are important to her
  • The relationship between being present and being disciplined
  • How being disciplined can give you a sense of grounding and expansiveness
  • Balancing the desire to learn, improve, and enhance with the idea that “I’m not broken.”
  • How biographies can be more impactful than self-help books
  • Her definition of a great leader
  • Overcoming challenges when a concept becomes a reality
  • Her leadership archetypes

How to Leverage Your Impostor Syndrome:

 

  1. Stop comparing yourself to others.
  2. Ask yourself: “What did I do today that was better than yesterday? What will I do tomorrow that will be better than today?”
  3. Understand the distinction between perfection and excellence.

As highly ambitious women, striving to reach our goals, dreams, and meet the needs of our clients often leads us to striving for the near-impossible – perfection. Highly ambitious, professional women and female entrepreneurs often find themselves spending countless hours changing, tweaking, revising, and polishing our work – whether it’s that next blog post or the next big course we want to launch – before we finally put it out into the world.

This “perfection addiction” is a common issue for many new and experienced entrepreneurs as well as highly ambitious, successful professional women. Today, I want to share with you my 5 powerhouse strategies for coping with – and overcoming – the perfect addiction.

 

“Embrace the mantra that ‘done’ truly is better than ‘perfect’.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Overcoming the fear of “dropping the ball” when faced with the opportunity to scale and grow
  • Reconciling growth and ambition with perfection

 

5 Powerful Strategies to Cope with Perfection Addiction:

  1. Embrace constraints
  2. Embrace public accountability
  3. Release attachment to limiting relationships
  4. Find bold, imperfect role models
  5. Boss up, woman!

As a woman, it can be challenging to gain the respect you deserve if you are working in a male-dominate industry and now one knows that better than today's guest.

Elem Rinomato’s journey into the construction industry began at the tender age of 8 when she asked her father the simple question, “Daddy, what is drywall?” Today, she is the president of Torino Drywall, a company that builds wall and ceiling system for high-rise and low-rise residential and commercial construction projects as well as the owner of Country Homes – a residential home construction company for the Greater Toronto Area. She is also the Vice President of the Rinomato group of commercial companies, the Vice President of the Board of Directors of the Interior Systems Contractors Association, and a board member of the local apprenticeship committee.

Elem is an incredibly fierce feminine leader in the construction industry, and today, she joins me on the show to share her story. She explains what it was like to be the only woman in the boardroom and how she overcame gender bias in a male-dominated business world.

 

“At the end of the day, one of the only things you have in life is the ability to make your own decisions. If you don’t voice your opinion, if you don’t say how you really feel, you become guilty of letting other people make choices for you.” – Elem Rinomato

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What she did to set her company apart from her competitors.
  • What it was like to be the only woman in the room – and how she earned the respect of her male counterparts.
  • How to get your voice heard in a male-dominant industry.
  • How removing negativity – and negative people – from your life helps you shift your mindset and become a powerhouse businesswoman.
  • Female intuition and how it helps you achieve success.
  • Why energy, authenticity, and attitude in business is more important than facts, education, money, circumstances, failures, and success.
  • Overcoming the fear of success.

 

Elem Rinomato’s Top 3 Success Strategies:

  • Know your stuff.
  • Attitude is everything.
  • Believe in yourself.

When it comes to personal branding, there is a lot of conventional wisdom, information, and insight floating around the internet. From articles in business magazines and on LinkedIn to professional development workshops, training, and books - there are dozens of “experts” teaching others how to build their personal brand through conventional methods and wisdom. On the surface, most of this advice seems reasonable. However, if you dig a little deeper, you will likely find that the advice and wisdom they share is often counterproductive, ineffective, and even damaging.

 

On today’s episode, I’m discussing why everything you’ve learned about building your personal brand is wrong. I share the three most common myths about building your personal brand, how believing these myths can actually hold you back from achieving your professional goals, and how they can prevent you from showing up as the strong, confident, fierce feminine leader we know you can be. I also explain why your personal brand should be viewed as the byproduct of your decision to be deliberate and intentional and why the way you present yourself and your brand should reinforce your ideas, values, and mission in this world.

  

“I wouldn’t be where I am today if I had listened to the bad, but conventional, advice I received about personal branding.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The importance of aligning your personal brand with your instincts and values.
  • Why building your personal brand is not a “fluff-filled activity.”
  • The dangers of taking advice from people with “unconscious competence.”
  • Why your reputation is critical to your long-term success.
  • Why your presentation should reinforce your ideas.
  • Why the idea that your personal brand is your lead indicator is wrong
  • The importance of viewing your personal brand as the lag indicator - not the compass.
  • Why your brand should be a natural byproduct of you being true to the things that matter most to you. 

Top 3 Myths About Personal Branding:

  1. Don’t build your personal brand.
  2. Presentation trumps ideas.
  3. Building a personal brand constricts your freedom of expression and decisiveness.

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Bold presentation is going to be most powerful when it reinforces your ideas.”
  • “A brand is a return on investment. It is a lag indicator that you build from being intentional about your values, what you bring to the world, and the contribution you want to make.”
  • Don’t lead with brand. Brand is the afterglow. Action and intention are the things that are going to get you where you want to go.”

Andrea Mallard is the Chief Marketing Officer at Athleta, an ethical apparel brand recognized for their yoga wear and clothing line designed to inspire women and girls to reach their full potential. Andrea received her bachelor’s degree in International Politics and English Literature from Queens University in 1999 and her master’s degree in Media from the London School of Economics in 2001 - graduating at the very top of her class at both schools. After graduating college, she began working with IDEO, Omada Health, and, later, held a seat on the Board of Advisors for the German company, Unu Motors.

Today, Andrea shares how to incorporate creativity into your business and the power of failure. She explains the critical nature of maintaining a “beginner’s mind” despite your level of success and how to find the advantages lurking within unexpected situations. She also shares her thoughts on personal branding and why she thinks you shouldn’t focus on building your personal brand.

 

“A good idea is doomed to be a good idea forever, but a bad idea has the chance to be great.” - Andrea Mallard

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How her childhood shaped her character as a leader.
  • The importance of maintaining a beginner’s mindset despite your level of success.

  1. Seek and give feedback and build trust with the people you are working with.

Do you strongly believe that working hard produces its own results and rewards? That if you work hard enough, you won’t need to “toot your own horn” and share your accomplishments with others because, ultimately, your hard work is proof of your success and accomplishments?

Many brilliant, high-achieving professional women shy away from talking about themselves, their accomplishments, and their successes because they don’t want to come off as obnoxious or leave the impression that they are bragging. What many of these fierce ladies may not realize, though, is that sharing their accomplishments with the world helps them claim their power, their authority, and their voice.

So, how can you subtly toot your own horn without coming off as obnoxious or braggy? That, my fierce friends, is exactly what I’m going to share with you today! I’m sharing five powerful strategies to help you share your accomplishments and successes without sounding like you have a chip on your shoulder.

 

“As you advance, that hard work and the results become table stakes.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why sharing your accomplishments are critical to your potential for advancement
  • How to share your accomplishments without sounding obnoxious
  • The importance of scheduling weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly “check-ins” with your boss or clients

 

5 Tips to Subtly Toot Your Own Horn:

  1. Talk about your team, their results, while making it clear that you are in the driver’s seat
  2. Take your boss and your client out to lunch
  3. Get recommendations on LinkedIn
  4. Use the power of stories
  5. Share what you have learned.

Sramana Mitra is Founder of One Million by One Million, the first and only global virtual accelerator. She is the author of the Entrepreneur Journeys book series as well as the Vision India 2020 and Billion Dollar Unicorns books. As an entrepreneur and CEO, she successfully ran multiple businesses, including Intarka, DAIS Infotech, and Uuma, Inc. and holds a master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT.

Sramana joins me today to explain what “unicorn businesses” are and why entrepreneurs need to stop chasing these unicorns. She shares the formula that she believes makes up a successful business, why over 99% of venture capital deals are typically rejected when seeking financing, and the parameters your business needs to meet to be considered a “fundable business.” She also explains the difference between a “real entrepreneur” and a “pseudo-entrepreneur” and why she believes smaller, profitable businesses should be celebrated.

 

“We are trying to create fortune in the middle of the pyramid. We do not believe that excess is a requirement for success.” - Sramana Mitra

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The impact that growing up in India had on her success and career.
  • What prompted her to start her current company.
  • Why over 99% of entrepreneurs seeking venture capital financing for their companies are rejected.
  • Factors that must be present to receive venture capital funding.
  • Challenges associated with presenting an alternative, controversial opinion and framework to venture capital funding.
  • How she helps entrepreneurs with funding announcements.
  • What are “unicorn businesses?”
  • How Silicon Valley’s views of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship have evolved over the years.
  • The difference between “real entrepreneurs” and “pseudo-entrepreneurs.”
  • Why technology is becoming an oligarchy and how it impacts entrepreneurs.
  • How she finds time to feed her intellectual appetite, analyze trends, and be a thought-leader.

 

Resources Mentioned:

  • Economist Magazine

 

Sramana Mitra’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Surround yourself with smart people who are deep thinkers.
  2. Read publications that will give you a broad view of what is happening in the world.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Venture capital is an optional tool of building a business.”
  • “I think $500,000 a year is a success; $1-Million a year is a success; $2-Million a year is a success because all of those are really difficult to do.
  • “Building a business is very difficult to do. Building a profitable business is very difficult to do and whatever scale people are comfortable and successful doing it at needs to be celebrated.

Brilliant women like you are brave enough to create their own businesses, build an exceptional team, and have life-changing ideas they want to share with the world. Sadly, not all brilliant women are brave enough to speak in front of an audience or make their voice heard in a boardroom or show their capable and competent selves because of this genuine and crippling fear - the fear of being visible.

Today, I’m going to define visibility and share why many brilliant women struggle with it, and how having this fear negatively affects your career, business, and leadership presence. I’ll also explain how you can overcome it with smart, straightforward strategies so that you can peel away the self-doubt and start breathing life into your ideas by showing the powerful and authentic you.

 

You cannot inspire others if you are not willing to be seen and heard for who you authentically are.

If you want to make a strong impact in the world while doing the work you love, you need to build your personal brand. Many fierce leaders struggle with building their personal brand, so they turn to information on the internet or published books to seek tips and strategies that will help them create the brand they desire. Unfortunately, most of these tips and strategies are either outdated or ineffective.

On today’s episode, I’m discussing why you need to triple down on your personal brand this year and share effective strategies to help you elevate it, so it can open doors of opportunity for you and your business. I explain why your personal brand is the by-product of your daily actions and how to build your personal brand based on the things you already know and are doing. I also explain how your personal brand impacts your reputation and perceived value and how it can set you apart from your competitors - especially in a world of “information overload.”

 

“Your personal brand is a return on investment. It is not the lead indicator.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why you need to build a strong personal brand.
  • \How to build your personal brand by focusing on what you know and are doing already.
  • How your personal brand impacts your reputation and perceived value.
  • How building a strong personal brand can impact your business.
  • Why most information regarding building a personal brand is not effective.

 

Fierce Lead Strategies to Build Your Personal Brand:

  1. Adopt a mission that is bigger than you.
  2. Arm yourself with killer statistics about your area of focus.
  3. Take a galvanizing point of view. Have an opinion. Take a position.
  4. Master the art of public speaking.
  5. Be authentically unconventional.
  6. Execute quarterly, high impact initiatives.
  7. Cultivate your conviction.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Personal brand is the return on investment from being intentional about doing other things. It is the by-product.”
  • “In the world of work, success is not just about what you know. Nor is it about who you know. It is about who knows what you know.”
  • “When you build a strong personal brand, what you are essentially doing is elevating your reputation.”

She shares how she balanced her work life and family life as she built her career and her company while having two children. She also shares the hard efforts and sacrifices she had to make to ensure the success of her startup.

Gender inclusion in the corporate and working world has come a long way over the last several decades. However, now that more women are starting to hold seats at the tables where the big decisions are made - many female leaders struggle with speaking up, providing their valuable insight, and making meaningful contributions to the conversations and decisions that are being made.

On today’s episode, I’m discussing why you need to speak up, buttercup! I explain why powerhouse women won’t stay silent when sitting around the big tables in their businesses or organizations and how staying silent robs the conversation - and the people in it - of your value, insight, and brilliance. I’ll also share strategies you can use to help you find your voice and speak up at the tables where these big decisions are being made.

 

“Successful people are often comfortable sharing their half-baked ideas.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Why more women need to speak up and provide their insight during meetings
  • The impact that honing your persuasive speaking and presentation skills can have on your success as a leader.
  • The impression you portray to others by not speaking up in meetings.
  • How to get more comfortable with speaking up in meetings.

 

Powerhouse Tips for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Share ideas that aren’t fully formed.
  2. Set a goal before you enter the meeting.
  3. Focus on the goal of the meeting and the people it serves.
  4. Ask for help.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “If you’re sitting around a table and your voice isn’t heard - you have got to remedy that.”
  • “To truly make an impact and unlock the next step in your career or business, you have to do more than take your seat at the table. You have to learn how to use your voice.”
  • “It’s not about having self-doubt. It’s about dealing with it when it happens.”

Rachel Glaser is the Chief Financial Officer at Etsy, an e-commerce company with a unique focus on offering handmade and vintage products and supplies. She has over 30 years of experience serving in senior executive roles within finance departments at several well-known brands such as Leaf Group and Move, Inc as well as serving as the Senior Vice President of Operations Finance at Yahoo and The Walt Disney Company. At Etsy, she is responsible for overseeing the global financial operations for the company and was recently elected to the Board of Directors of The New York Times.

Rachel joins me today to share how having a brand-first approach helped her accelerate her career and climb the corporate ladder while being a working mother. She explains how focusing on empathy impacted her personal and professional life, why having a brand-first approach to working with various companies was an important factor to her when deciding to transition into new roles or companies, and the lessons she has learned as she transitioned from one role to another. She also explains the importance of focusing more on “the vital few” projects within your organization and less on “the worthwhile many” and how it can impact your company’s growth and brand trajectory.

 

“There is no glass ceiling. There is nothing out of reach.” - Rachel Glaser

  • The impact of shifting your focus from “the worthwhile many” projects to “the vital few” projects can have on your growth and trajectory.
  • How to shift your focus to one key accountability factor.
  • Building and fostering loyal followers.

 

Rachel Glaser’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Realize your experience is valid, important, and unique to you.
  2. Remember that you have a team around you. Try to shift from being the doer of things to being the influencer or leader of things.
  3. Have conviction.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Reach inside yourself and realize that your experience is valid.” - Rachel Glaser
  • “Trust in your experience. Know that you probably know more than you think you do.” - Rachel Glaser

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.”

Many women tend to downplay their achievements. They are worried that their efforts to get out there and own their accomplishments may come across negatively - as if they’re showing off. This worry is only one of the many fears that prevent women from moving forward and from knowing what they are capable of accomplishing.

Today, I’m sharing five self-promotion fears that could be holding you back from your ultimate potential. I’m also sharing how to overcome this fear and how to effectively and confidently promote yourself without sounding conceited and egotistical.

 

“Focus on the people who will benefit from the success that you create and drive and allow that to be the fuel that allows you to engage in a strategic art of self-promotion.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How downplaying your accomplishments can hurt you
  • Where to begin when overcoming the fear of self-promotion
  • The significance of belonging to an intentional community
  • What the Tall Poppy Syndrome is
  • The inevitability of failure and how to perceive it
  • What Impostor Syndrome is
  • Where to learn to promote yourself strategically

 

Five Fears of Self-Promotion:

  1. Fear of what your family and friends are going to say
  2. Fear that people won’t like you
  3. “Who does she think she is?” Fear
  4. Fear of commitment
  5. Fear from suffering from Impostor Syndrome

 

Resources Mentioned:

  • Episode 259: Why Your Fear of Overwork is Killing Your Ambition
  • Episode 260: Why Successful Women Are More Selfish

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

While society thinks that being selfish is something negative, there are advantages - especially when it comes to your professional life. This “selfishness” does not mean you should neglect your responsibilities and valuable relationships. It simply means giving yourself time to focus on your priorities so you can have the energy to make progress on the things that are essential to you and your career.

Today, I’m sharing why successful women are more selfish when it comes to their priorities and why you should learn to embrace episodic selfishness — an essential tool that allows you to drive your career forward while keeping your sanity. I’m also sharing why women struggle to be selfish, how being selfish boosts your performance, and some practical ways to be selfish without alienating support and the people that matter.

 

“Reframe selfishness as focus.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The fear of being selfish
  • Why you need to allow people to fail
  • Being noble vs. leading to burnout
  • Why women are reluctant to be selfish
  • A look at Anna Fels’ report about how women perceive ambition
  • When a woman’s goals become acceptable
  • How athletes become “selfish” with their time to achieve their full potential
  • The mindset that will prevent you from making an impact
  • How your focus is under siege
  • What episodic selfishness is
  • How long moments of episodic selfishness should be
  • What women need to unlearn about setting boundaries

 

How to Focus Your Priorities:

  1. Lay down boundaries.
  2. Focus on the things that are important to you.

 

Resources Mentioned:

  • Episode 259: Why Your Fear of Overwork is Killing Your Ambition
  • Do Women Lack Ambition? A Study by Anna Fels on Harvard Business Review

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Focus is the core psychological skill of high performance.”
  • “Focusing on what you need to do to accomplish your goal rather than blocking out everything else is fundamental to being productive, organized, and high-performing.”
  • “Your biggest limitation is the belief that you need to be all things to all people.”

 

One of the Most Important Gifts You Can Give Yourself!

Do you want to learn how to set powerful boundaries so you don’t get burned out and eventually tap out? Give yourself the vital gift to learn how to effectively set boundaries and know why you need to start saying no more than you say yes. Sign up now for my free training webinar called Stop the Coffee Dates: The Boundary-Setting Master Class for Women that’s happening on April 10, 2018.

Many women obtain a certain level of success by following the rules in the world of business -- a world initially built for and by men. These rules have taught us that if we keep working hard and striving for our goals, we’ll reach that next level of success. Some women decide to play a smaller game, neglecting their dreams and ambitions out of fear of being overworked, overwhelmed, and disrupting the work-life balance they have established.

In this episode, I’m sharing how to unlearn the old rule that more success equals more work and how this rule keeps you from getting to the next level of success. I’m sharing the reasons why hard work will not take you to the next level, how to avoid overworking, and how powerhouse women manage their workload and get results.

 

“Success is not the result of your labor. Success is the result of your leverage.”

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The wrong mindset about success
  • The pivotal moment for Arianna Huffington regarding hard work and success
  • When hard work is a competitive advantage and when it starts to be a disadvantage
  • How hard work hurts your leadership
  • How overwork impacts leaders negatively
  • Why it is hard to be strategic when you’re overworked

 

Three Reasons Why Hard Work is Killing Your Ambition:

  1. It gets you in the door, but it won’t up-level you.
  2. Overwork undermines your leadership presence.
  3. When you’re overworked, it’s hard to be strategic.

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Being at a high level of success means getting stuff done with as little effort as possible.”
  • “You’ve got to work smart. You’ve got to work strategically. That’s how powerhouse women operate.”

The word “collaboration” usually has a positive connotation -- being productive as you work with others. In business, partnering with other people does not always have this outcome. There are fruitful collaborations that allow you and your partners to grow and there are those that leave you stressed, unproductive, and stagnant. How would you know which partnerships will help you soar?

In this episode, I’m sharing why women tend to waste their time with partnerships and collaborations that go nowhere. I’m sharing how to recognize the signs of an unproductive collaboration, and where to get the information you need to develop the tools that will help you identify better partnerships in the future that will move you and your business forward.

 

“It is okay to say ‘no,’ to be strategic, to bow out of over commitments.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What collaboration means
  • The reality about collaborating women
  • Reasons why women enter into time-wasting partnerships
  • Over commitment and miscalculation
  • The significance of bringing your assets to the table
  • Strategic collaboration vs. Anti-collaboration
  • An example of a healthy and productive collaboration

 

Signs of an Unproductive Collaboration:

  • When it’s going to drain your time and energy without giving you much in return
  • When somebody invites you to collaborate, and they have no track record that proves they can do what they say they can do
  • When somebody does exactly what you do
  • When you have to create something new that you’re not already doing

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “The rule of being nice is just one rule that we, as powerhouse women leaders, need to break.“
  • “For a collaboration to be effective, you each have to be bringing assets to the table.”
  • “Your next level of success has so much more to do with what you say ‘no’ to than to what you say ‘yes’ to.”
