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
