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

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

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.

Video games have towered over many industry in terms of bringing new innovations and products to the marketplace quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. So how can you take a page from their game plan and use it in your own business to launch a highly successful, innovative new product or service idea quickly and effectively?

My guest today is Amy Jo Kim. Amy has a background in neuroscience, computer science, and psychology and is an expert in the fields of video game design and online community architecture. 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

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • What is “game thinking” and why you should think like a game designer
  • What is “deep learning” and how it can help you work smarter and faster
  • The common characteristics of successful innovations
  • Having the humility to be genuinely curious about what works in your idea – as well as what doesn’t
  • Doubling down on your super powers to get 10X results – 10 times faster
  • The difference between your aspirations and your super powers
  • Who you really need to talk to in the early stages of creating an innovative product or service
  • How listening to your customers and clients can help you get innovative ideas for new products and services
  • Iterating your core learning loop

 

What It Takes to Bring a Great Idea to Life:

  1. Think like a scientist. Be able to hold a vision and be actively interested in what is wrong with your ideas.
  2. Know what stage you are at and who to test your idea on.
  3. Find the smallest bit of value – the starting point of your experience – and prototype that.

Lia Diagnostics was co-founded by Bethany Edwards and Anna Simpson, who met while completing the University of Pennsylvania's Integrated Product Design Program. Both with undergraduate degrees in artistic subjects, the two have created a Fast Company’s 2018 World Changing Ideas Award winner - the Lia pregnancy test.

They also explain the trials of working in manufacturing and the challenges they faced when approaching investors and funding circles.

Do you ever feel like you need to give yourself a kick in the butt? You feel like a hot mess, but you’re not sure how to fix it? You’re experiencing the life of an amateur. Being ‘busy’ is not being professional, and professionals are the ones that get stuff done.

So, how do you make the switch from amateur, to professional?

Today, I explain the difference between being an amateur and a pro, what it means to play “below the line,” and how playing below the line impacts your results as a powerhouse female leader. I share strategies to help you identify the amateur moments in your professional career as well as how to overcome them to begin playing at a higher level. I also explain why it’s critical for fierce feminine leaders to identify what they want in their careers while consistently showing up as highly-ambitious professionals that are dedicated to pursuing and achieving their goals.

 

“The master makes everything looks effortless... amateurs look rushed.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The importance of showing up as a professional - consistently.
  • The qualities of a highly-ambitious professional.
  • How to commit to being a professional.
  • What it means to play “below the line” as a professional.
  • Reasons vs. Results.
  • Strategies to begin showing up consistently as a pro.

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “A professional shows up consistently, day after day. She is committed to the work that she does and she shows up consistently - even on the days she might not feel like it.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “The people who get the results are the ones who have that ability to consistently identify when they are playing below the line and get themselves back up..” - Eleanor Beaton

When it comes to taking quantum leaps in growing your business or significantly advancing in your career – it’s not all about the amount of effort, hard work, dedication, or perseverance you provide your business or organization. These things do play a significant role, however it’s not the only thing that your business partners or your organizational leaders consider when it’s time to promote or open your business to new opportunities.

Effort, hard work, dedication, and perseverance can get our foot in the door, but it won’t get you to the front of the line.

So, what is it that can put you at the front of the line for that next promotion or the big speaking opportunity you’ve been dreaming about? In one word – sponsors – powerful, connected people within your organization or industry that can open the doors of opportunity for you.

On today’s episode, I’m going to share with you the difference between a mentor and a sponsor and how connecting with a sponsor can help you make the quantum leaps you desire in your business or career in 2017.

 

Sponsors are like the ladders in a game of Snakes and Ladders.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Research shows that women focus more on connecting with role models than connecting with sponsors.
  • What’s the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
  • Sponsors are your allies – not your friend. You work together to help each other advance in your careers.
  • How to find a sponsor in your organization or industry to help you advance your business or career.

 

My Challenge to You:

  • Find a sponsor.
  • Look beyond your mentors.
  • Remember: Sponsorship is earned.

Many highly-ambitious, motivation-driven fierce feminine leaders often feel like they are not as productive as they could be. Despite all of the balls they juggle throughout the day, they are constantly looking for ways to squeeze every ounce of “juice” out of every waking moment. They know that their productivity is the true core of their power as a fierce leader, so improving it is the key to  developing their leadership skills.

So, how do you increase your productivity as a highly-ambitious, fierce feminine leader?

Today, I’m sharing the top five reasons you are not as productive as you could be as well as tips on how to boost your productivity to become a better leader. I explain how envisioning where you want your life and business to go impacts your productivity and the importance of finding the right strategy to help you focus and reach your goals. I also explain the difference between emotional support and practical support, how taking moments of periodic intensity helps you become more productive, and why trying to be all things to all people is one of the biggest mistakes a leader can make and how it can ultimately kill your productivity.

 

“We’re all looking for ways to be better, to improve, to do more with less - to be more productive.” - Eleanor Beaton

  

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The difference between being efficient and being productive.
  • How your vision fuels your productivity.
  • Strategies to help you reconnect with your vision and self-identity.
  • How the areas you focus on and the strategies you use impact your productivity.
  • The difference between emotional support and practical support.
  • What periodic intensity is and how it helps increase your productivity.
  • How mastering the art of saying ‘no’ allows you to be more productive and focus on the win-win opportunities.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “Productivity is the amount of leveraged and focused energy that you can apply to results-producing activities.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “In the absence of a clear vision, you are a ship without a rudder.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “It is really important that we are able to lay down strong boundaries - to articulate what our agenda is, to find opportunities to collaborate and work together - but be able to say ‘NO’ when it is not a win-win situation.” - Eleanor Beaton

You know, the power of the internet has made it very easy to start and run an amazing business, but when it comes to getting your brand visible by the right people – that can often be a bit trickier – especially for introverts. Many fierce feminine leaders know they need to put themselves out there – whether it’s producing videos, taking photos of themselves, or otherwise stepping up to the plate and claiming their awesome-ness, but they may lack the confidence in themselves, how they look, or how they present themselves to the world. And that, my fierce tribe, is what is preventing many amazing women in business from making the impact they were destined to make on the world.

Today, my guest is Colette Werden. Colette is an expert at helping passionate, purpose-driven women entrepreneurs and professionals “get visible.” She is the founder and CEO of Colette Werden Australia, an authentic personal branding expert, and a keynote speaker. Her company specializes in helping driven entrepreneurs and professionals present themselves authentically and with confidence so they can make the unique difference in their businesses, their organizations, and the world.

In today’s episode, Colette shares her insight and knowledge on the inner work that many driven female entrepreneurs and professionals in business need to do to put themselves “out there” – even as an introvert. She shares how our wardrobe often effects not only the way we think and feel about ourselves on a personal level, but also how we present ourselves to the world and build our businesses on a professional level.

 

“What we wear on the outside is a direct reflection of who we are on the inside.” – Colette Werden

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Using your wardrobe to connect with your clientele – and promote high self-esteem.
  • Evolving your wardrobe style as you continue to evolve personally and professionally.
  • Colette’s “Ratio System,” what it is, and how she uses it to help her clients.
  • Her biggest turning points while building her business.
  • The biggest challenges she has faced while building her business.
  • How she overcame her natural introverted thoughts and behaviors to put herself “out there.”

 

Colette’s Top 3 Success Factors:

  1. Commitment to purpose.
  2. Celebrating milestones and being naturally high-achieving.
  3. Going “all-in” on who she is.

Her business offers human resources solutions and business advisory to prepare businesses for long-term success.

Today, Daniela shares lessons she has learned from her experiences of running a business internationally and insight into the art of the deal. She emphasizes why it is important to make human resources decisions from a business standpoint first and explains how much of her HR work mirrors the process of mergers and acquisitions. She also shares the strategies she used to get HR representation at the decision-making table.

 

“If HR can focus on building a compelling place to work, they will be building a compelling place to shop, get a service from, whatever that company offers - which in turn, is going to be a compelling place to invest.” - Daniela Tixi

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • Why her approach to human resources is not the norm.
  • How she knew social media would change HR.
  • Why she believes it is important to apply marketing and sales principles internally.
  • Why it’s important to make HR decisions as a business person first and then as an HR specialist.
  • Why she decided to leave the corporate world and start her own
  • How she transforms organizations using human capital strategies.
  • Why she likens HR work to working on mergers and acquisitions.
  • The most important thing a company can do to maintain high performance of its teams through a merger and acquisition or period of disruptive growth.
  • The success strategies she recommends for midlevel HR employees to be successful and innovative in the field.
  • How she made changes in the boardroom to give human resources a seat at the decision-making table.
  • Why her forecasts were more accurate than the CFOs.
  • Why building credibility and relationships are key for HR personnel to become a true partner in the business.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “The most important thing is to make all the HR decisions first as a business person, then as an HR strategic specialist.” - Daniela Tixi
  • “You need to stay agile. You need to stay really open-minded and you need to have a very good understanding of the industry and how the industry is affecting the workers and the market.” - Daniela Tixi
  • “If an HR decision doesn’t lead to business growth, don’t even consider it.” - Daniela Tixi

Goal-setting is one of the essential processes that do you as a leader to set the course toward achieving the vision that you have for yourself and your organization. While many leaders have grand images of what they want for their businesses, many either don’t have the right goals on their list or don’t know how to set them up for success. If there is a clear link between your goals and your achievements, you want to make sure you’re spending the time, money, and effort to execute the right intentions.

Today, I’m explaining the difference between your goals and your vision and the connection between these two different concepts. I also describe each of the three distinct goal-setting processes that can help you set the right goals for your business and your career, share practical examples to illustrate each one, and point out how these methods are linked to one another.

 

Learning how to set effective goals is the core psychological skill of high performance.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Explaining the 100 One’s Concept and how to do it
  • One of the hardest questions to answer when setting goals
  • Applying the Intention, Attention, Out-tention Principle
  • Describing the Quarterly Critical Approach
  • Why people get stuck
  • How the Daily Three Method works

 

Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • Read your 100 Ones as often as possible.
  • Don’t just think about the business you’re in, but also nurture the business you’re becoming.
  • The most significant successes happen when you link your daily activities to your Quarterly Critical goals.

Have you ever spent time, energy, and passion to create a new piece of content, marketing material, or strategy only to find someone else has copied your work and promoted it as their own? Discovering someone else has copied you can be frustrating! But many people believe the misconception that copying is flattering - that copying someone else's work or ideas is a common occurrence throughout the business world.

 

The “Rob and Duplicate” concept can significantly impact the way others perceive you, your company, and your brand. It can be detrimental to the impact you want to make in the world and can significantly tarnish your reputation.

 

On today’s episode, I explain the three reasons why people may copy your work, what you can do if you catch yourself copying someone else’s ideas, and how to protect yourself against copycats. I explain the difference between copying and modeling and how you can identify when you are copying someone else or simply modeling their process or idea. I also share how I handled a copycat situation last year when I realized my work was being copied by someone else.

 

“If you are truly being uniquely you - if you are truly on a mission to become preeminent in your space - you cannot be preeminent and copy other people.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • The benefits and drawbacks of creating new things based on your ideas and knowledge.
  • The primary reason high-performers copy others.
  • How “Robbing and Duplicating” can hurt your business or career.
  • How copying others can impact your reputation.
  • My experience with dealing with copycats.
  • The importance of identifying when you are copying someone else.
  • The importance of identifying why you are copying someone.
  • The difference between copying and modeling.
  • How to prevent copying other people’s work or ideas.
  • The importance of quickly moving on new ideas - instead of procrastinating.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “When you copy someone else, you will always be second-class.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “When you are being the best, truest version of yourself; when you are being most authentic and bold, it is impossible for people to copy you.” - Eleanor Beaton
  • “Anybody who creates things - the risk of doing that is that it could be copied. The benefit is that you get to have the impact that you are here to make.” - Eleanor Beaton

  1. Focus on the audience.

  3. Think about the story you need to tell that links the audience to that success.

 

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “I think that if you’ve had a really eclectic background and you’re always jumping in to work with people who have very different backgrounds from you, it means that you’re actually coming to better solutions and you’re thinking about things differently. And I think it shakes things up in a really positive, healthy way.” - Gina Jeneroux
  • “Curiosity helps you be a little bit more grounded and a little bit more zen about the things that will work out phenomenally and the things that won’t.” - Gina Jeneroux

It’s easy to get caught up in daily tasks and neglect the goals we have set for ourselves. Sometimes fear or uncertainty cause us to procrastinate, and we need to shift our mindset to stay on track. Sometimes we lack the accountability we need to meet our goals. Whatever the reason we lose focus, there are strategies we can implement to realign ourselves with our goals and retrain our focus on the important work instead of the busy work.

In today’s episode, I share five strategies I have consistently used to stay focused on my goals. I explain how I combine mindset work with organization to achieve the best results. I describe the benefits of continuous learning and how having a coach for accountability has helped propel my business forward. I also explain how vital it is to build a team who you can outsource your decisions to preserve your willpower.

 

“If you set concrete goals and never look at them again, your chances and the likelihood of you reaching those goals goes down.” - Eleanor Beaton

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Strategies to help you stay focused and on track.
  • The importance of reviewing your goals on a regular basis.
  • My system for setting, reviewing, and completing goals.
  • Why I prioritize internally generated deadlines over externally generated deadlines.
  • Why I recommend starting a regular meditation practice.
  • The importance of building both a professional and personal team.
  • What it means to outsource your willpower.
  • The importance of continuing to read and learn.
  • The benefits of having a coach.

 

5 Strategies to Stay Focused:

  1. Set yearly goals and review them two to three times a week.
  2. Meditate.
  3. Build a team.
  4. Reading and learning.
  5. Work with a coach.

Tiffani Bova is a sales strategist, speaker, and the Global Customer Growth and Innovation Evangelist at Salesforce. She was recognized by the National Diversity Council as one of the Most Powerful and Influential Women in California in 2014 and Inc. Magazine recognized her as one of the 37 Sales Experts You Need to Follow on Twitter. She is a regular contributor to the Harvard Business Review, has recently published the book, Growth IQ: Get Smarter About the Choices that Will Make or Break Your Business, and is the host of the What’s Next! podcast.

 

 

Tiffani joins me to discuss what growth IQ means and share the ten growth paths that separate high performing businesses from those that begin experiencing a growth stall. She emphasizes how combination and sequencing are vital to business growth and why it is more important than ever for businesses to focus on improving their customer experience. She also shares her top three growth strategies for female founders to boost their growth IQ.

 

 

“What really separated the high performers was the combination of initiatives that they did in a particular sequence or order.” - Tiffani Bova

 

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

 

  • What her upbringing in Hawaii taught her about life and business.
  • Why she calls herself a “recovering seller.”
  • Her definition of growth IQ.
  • The pattern she saw over 15 years of work that high performing companies used to grow.
  • Why combinations and sequencing are essential for growth.
  • Why she believes customer experience is the new product.
  • How to find a balance between customer experience and other growth paths.
  • How consumers and their expectations have changed.
  • Why she believes the lines between B2C and B2B have become blurred.
  • The habits and disciplines that have allowed high growth IQ companies to be customer-centric.
  • Using unconventional strategies as a growth path.
  • What surprises her the most about how companies grow.
  • Three growth strategies for female founders.

 

Tiffani Bova’s Top 3 Growth Strategies:

 

  1. Disrupt yourself and be open to being uncomfortable.
  2. Be a student of your profession.
  3. Figure out how you can start to give back.

 

Fierce Leadership Quotes:

 

  • “Experience is the new product.” - Tiffani Bova
  • “The lines between B2B and B2C have blurred to the point that I’m now calling it B2E: business to everything, everyone, and to the experience.” - Tiffani Bova
  • “The companies that are more outside-in oriented, culturally, are able to really align themselves to this message of experience being the product.” - Tiffani Bova
