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

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How her parents focus on empathy impacted her professional life.
  • How she balanced and advanced her career while raising children.
  • The impact of cultivating a broad skill set has had on her career.
  • How she transitioned from a CFO role at Disney to a VP role at Yahoo.
  • Lessons she has learned during her career transitions.
  • The impact of having clear, trustworthy communications with others.
  • How shifting the Etsy culture to focus on accountability impacted the company’s ability to achieve massive milestones.
  • 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
  • “If you really believe in something - you should own it.” - 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.”

They discuss the importance of understanding when to be supportive and when to be challenging while working with others within your organization, why they believe diversity, gender equality, and gender inclusion is critical for shaping the FinTech industry, and the importance of being authentic as a female leader in a male-dominant industry. They also explain the importance of embracing your emotions as a fierce feminine leader and what we can do to encourage more women to achieve leadership roles within STEM industries.

 

“Don’t be afraid of your gender. It really is an asset.” - Tonya Flickinger

  • How to encourage younger female generations and women in FinTech to pursue leadership roles.
  • Why they believe more women are not pursuing or achieving leadership roles in the FinTech industry.
  • The importance of maintaining authenticity while being a good female role model.
  • The importance of making time to build your network.

 

Tonya Flickinger’s and Christine Poulon’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  1. Always work with integrity.
  2. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you believe you deserve - but be sure you are well prepared.
  3. Try hard to be self-aware.
  4. Make sure you are constantly developing your network.
  5. Find your voice. Own it and live it on a daily basis.
  6. Understand what you enjoy. Really look at where you are putting your effort.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Emotion in the form of passion is always great.” - Christine Poulon
  • “You need to be your authentic self. That doesn’t mean that you should never change, but you should be really thoughtful about what you want to change about yourself.” - Christine Poulon
  • “Make your network relationships strong to begin with.” - Tonya Flickinger

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

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.

 

Resources Mentioned:

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

  • “Real success doesn’t mean working yourself to the bone. Real success means fulfillment. It means thriving.”
  • “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.”

Annie Rogaski is a lawyer and an entrepreneur who has a passion for supporting women leadership. She co-founded a women-owned high-tech intellectual property law firm called HIP Legal and a women’s leadership organization called The Club. Annie is currently the general counsel at a mixed reality tech startup, Avegant, and the host and producer of Unraveling Pink, a podcast that tackles gender-based assumptions through honest conversations.

Annie joins me on this episode to share how her decision to show up authentically changed the trajectory of her life and her career. She shares the significant contributions she made after deciding to show up as she is, the essence of founding The Club, and how Annie established her law firm as a result of a 30-day experiment she did with the co-founders of the company.

 

“If you are someone else at work, it’s like this rubber band. The further you are from your natural state, the more stress you put on that rubber band and it can either stress to the point of not bouncing back, or stress to the point of breaking.” - Annie Rogaski

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What prompted Annie to start her podcast
  • Things she learned about herself being the only woman in the room
  • The deeper implications of her showing up as she is
  • How millennials impact employee authenticity at work
  • Why she felt that attending women-focused events in the past was not a good use of her time
  • Practical things she wants to see in The Club that would help women advance professionally
  • The requirements for joining the Club
  • How The Club members give back as a requirement of being part of the group
  • How her definition of success changed
  • What the Joy Experiment is
  • Why she decided to work with a startup company

 

Annie’s Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • You will have much more time and energy if you show up as “you.”
  • If you’re going to spend time at a conference, make sure you learn something, expand your network, and find some way to grow your path.

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.

It’s a common saying that rules are meant to be broken. Perhaps there is some wisdom in this quote in the sense that some people have found success by thinking out of the box, going the extra mile, and breaking old rules. This mindset is what we’re going to talk about today as I share an interview with Amanda Boleyn that was originally aired on the She Did It Her Way Podcast.

In this episode, I’m sharing how to create success by breaking old rules, inventing new ones, and doing it your way. I’m sharing why women struggle to replace their corporate income after taking the leap to entrepreneurship, how to get rid of limiting beliefs, the truth about confidence and how to get it, and how high income earning business women think.

 

“There is an intentional bending of the rules in order to achieve the greater good or greater outcome in an effort to do what’s right.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The influence in my life that encouraged me to pursue professional success my way
  • Why the majority of corporate women struggle to replace their corporate income
  • What the Farmer Orientation means in business
  • The elements of successful businesses
  • How to put your focus on the money without being controlled by it
  • Two significant parts of having predictable revenue
  • Confidence vs. competence
  • Key skills that successful business women have
  • What men know that women don’t about influence, money, and power
  • The significance of tapping into informal relationships to show people that you can add value

 

Eleanor’s Words of Wisdom:

  • If you can, find your way into smaller rooms.
  • Leverage your time before and after the meetings.
  • Power and influence express itself informally.

While women face various challenges around the globe, there are those -- both young and old -- who go against the tide and stand up for what they believe in. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we’re going to honor women who found their voice and made it heard — women who acted on their convictions and literally changed the world.

In this episode, I’m sharing five warrior queens — women and girls who inspire others to make a difference just like they did. I’m sharing their stories and achievements, what they fight for, and how they contributed to society to make this world a better and safer place for women.

 

“What I have found from working with women is that we need a good reason, a meaningful reason to do meaningful change.” - Eleanor Beaton

  • What traumatic experience that you have been through can you use as an ingredient to fuel meaningful change for yourself, your family, your society?
  • Make one meaningful act of contribution toward making our planet a better and more sustainable place.
  • What action can you take to increase diversity in the world around you?

No matter how confident we are, there are still moments when fierce feminine leaders will do anything in their power to avoid feeling judged. The fear of being judged can affect every aspect of our lives, but in order to perform at a high level, in business, and in life, you need to get over your fear of being judged.

On today’s episode, I’m sharing why you need to let go of your fear of being judged, how being self-conscious can affect your ability to perform at your highest level, and how to recognize this limiting belief. I also share strategies to help you overcome your fear of being judged so that you can take the reigns and achieve your goals, dreams, and aspirations.

 

“Going outside your comfort zone is uncomfortable for people - and that is the point.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Classic signs of being afraid of being judged
  • How not properly processing your fears of being judged can hold you back, professionally and personally
  • Various ways avoidance behaviors can manifest

A former senior legal counsel at Facebook, Bari Williams is a diversity and inclusion expert who is also the Head of Operations at StubHub. On top of her powerhouse corporate career, Bari also advises startup organizations especially in matters of her expertise — diversity, and inclusion.

Throughout every industry, we frequently hear successful entrepreneurs say that it’s important to be authentic in the way you present yourself to the world.

Being a fierce feminine leader can sometimes be exhausting. High performing leaders often wear so many hats in our professional and personal live, thinking about other people’s needs and wants, that we often forget about our own. Whether you are running a business or climbing the corporate ladder, you need to stay in peak physical and emotional condition to continue to perform well.

But, how do you keep in top physical condition to have the energy you need to stay at the top of your game? What does it take to have the energy and vitality to underscore your ambitions? As your professional career grows, the self-care needs that once worked for you may change and grow with you.

My guest today, Kristen Nolan, is a powerhouse in the woman’s health industry. Kristen is a high-performance health mentor and fitness and metabolism expert that is passionate about helping busy professional women take control of their bodies and feel energized, physically fit, and confident in their business and life. We discuss what you need to do to take better care of yourself as a high-performing female professional and the physical and dietary changes you may need as you advance in your career.

 

“When you increase your energy and brain focus, you have so much more power and presence in your area of work and at home.” Kristen Nolan

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • How to identify when you need to tweak your diet to perform at a higher level.
  • How stress affects your metabolism and overall health.
  • Ways to bring mindfulness into your day and how it helps reduce stress and improve performance.

 

 

Stress-Reducing Strategies for High-Performing Women:

  1. Move your body for at least 5 to 10 minutes per day.
  2. Eat at regular intervals and balance your snacks.
  3. Spend 5 to 10 minutes per day meditating – focusing on something that calms you.

Have you ever felt as though you were sabotaging your own success? Many women in business – especially those in leadership roles – unknowingly, unintentionally, unconsciously self-sabotage their potential for success and drastically limit the scope of what is possible for themselves in their careers, their income, and their lives.

On today’s episode, I want to share some of the top five ways many high-performing, highly motivated, fierce feminine leaders tend to sabotage their own potential for success – and what you should do to avoid making the same mistakes.

When you use the word ‘can’t’ – you make it true.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • The first step to avoiding self-sabotaging actions and behaviors is to understand the most common ways it happens.
  • You have a choice. The choice to deal with the discomfort of playing small, or the choice to deal with the pain and discomfort of being seen.

 

How to Avoid Self-Sabotaging Your Success:

  • Instead of saying “can’t” – ask yourself: “How might I…”
  • If you have a goal, go for it. The time is now. Make the time.
  • Ask yourself what assumptions you are making.
  • Be scientific and rigorous about applying logic to the ideas and beliefs that you are assuming to be true.
