This episode didn’t go quite as planned. In last week’s episode, we looked at why some speakers become thought leaders - the elements they have in common. I’ve gotten great feedback on that episode, so go back and listen to it if you haven’t already. I decided to do this series on thought leadership because of a client survey we did and a recent co…
 
Dog whistles, tropes, Microaggressions. Women in male-dominated fields deal with these attempts to silence, or sideline, them every week. Last week it came to light that some in presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign along with wealthy donors think that Kamal Harris is “Too Ambitious” to be a VP pick. Strong women, women in male-dominated fiel…
 
What do you think when you hear the term “thought leader?” Do you think you can be one? (Hint: you can!) I define a thought leader as someone who has an interesting idea that challenges the status quo, challenges our assumptions, maybe even breaks the rules, especially one that hasn’t been talked about a lot in their circle of influence, who commun…

The victim conflict personality type can impact everyone within earshot, they can be easy to dismiss and tough to deal with directly, don’t get caught chasing the shiny in their drama web. In today’s episode,…
 
If you've seen the incredible production of the play “Hamilton,” you may remember the song, “The room where it happens.” In it, Aaron Burr laments that he wants to be in the room where it happens - where leaders make decisions, make compromises, make opportunities for themselves and those who they are allied with. The idea is that to get traction, …
 
Every workplace has the potential to become toxic. When you get different personalities together and stressful situations crop up, dysfunctional coping mechanisms kick in. With a strong leader, these situations can be successfully navigated and addressed. When the boss is the Toxic component in your workplaces it leads to a sort of dysfunctional tr…
 
In this episode, my guest and I talk about what may be a difficult topic for some of you: sexual abuse and in particular male sexual abuse. We don’t go into detail about the abuse, but I wanted to let you know in case this is an area that is personal to you and you’d rather not listen to our conversation. Even if we’ve never personally experienced …
 
Did you know that there are two types of disappointment? The kind that is your responsibility and that you need to reckon with and make amends for and the kind that does not belong to you and sprouts from others’ expectations of you. Nobody likes that sinking feeling you get in your gut when you have disappointed someone, yet it is a feeling we hav…

We’ve worked …

When my guest said this during our conversation, we both stopped to write it down because it was so good: “You can’t attract the like-minded to you if you don’t speak your mind.” Boom. Mic drop. This is an incredible conversation, one you’re likely to listen to more than once. Why do some brands resonate more than others? How can you connect with y…
 
Have you ever been talking with someone and there is a lot being said, but not much understanding? Last week in the Difficult Happens Podcast private FB group, “Community Happens” (if you haven't already, please join us), Rachel mentioned someone who got really wordy in conversations and uses “fact slamming”. Right away I knew what she meant, but n…
 
This is not your typical conversation or approach to negotiations. I came across my guest, Alexandra (Alex) Carter, on another podcast where she was talking about her new book called “Ask for More: Ten Questions to Negotiate Anything.” Alex is a Director of the Mediation Clinic at Columbia Law School, where she is also an award-winning professor, a…
 
“I felt so much that I started to feel nothing” -- Lara When we learn, we grow. In my lifetime, there have been many…. let’s say ‘opportunities for growth.’ Today is another one of those opportunities. Our bodies keep the score of every emotion, every feeling that we have. Stress can physically make you sick, trust me, as someone of white-Irish her…
 
We’ve been hearing and seeing a lot over the past few weeks about anti-racism education and the need for white people (like me) to learn about how deep systemic racism is embedded throughout our society and the actions we can take to combat racism and anti-Blackness. This is a very different conversation about racism. My guest is April Harter, who …
 
“When we know better, we do better.” -- Maya Angelou Summary: Anger is a powerful emotion, anger is the great protector. Anger can also be a mask for an emotion that you have but do not want to acknowledge. By now we have all seen or heard about the Central Park woman Amy Cooper who was asked to leash her dog and proceeded to call the police and cl…
 
We’re all feeling a lot of emotions and seeing reactions and triggers in ourselves and others. Whether we’re having one-on-one conversations with family and friends, interacting on social media, watching the news, or even speaking to audiences, how can we better understand how to recognize triggers in ourselves and others and handle them better? My…
 
“Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” -- Ford Summary: Have you ever had to have a difficult conversation with yourself?

This is a conversation for white women about our role and privilege in a racist and white supremacist society and the work *we* need to do. As Kamala Harris said in a recent tweet: “The deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor are not isolated incidents. They are the result of systematic racism that has existed for generations.” I’…
 
"Listen to hear, not to respond.” Lara Summary: The simple act of listening can diffuse a tense situation. We’ve all experienced a conversation where the other person is just waiting to respond, not really listening.

Have you thought about hosting your own virtual summit? We've talked quite a bit for the past few months about the power of hosting webinars, which are typically just you talking to your audience (perhaps with a co-host).

We’ve come a long way baby… and there is farther to go. When it comes to gender equality, the pace of change is slow.

Anger has been the moral property of males when women are angry it is a warning of indignity, threat, insult,…

Bibi was in our …
 
Summary: Sometimes avoiding a tough conversation is the way to go, the ones that involve issues that work themselves out with time. Most conversations don’t. They need to be addressed, confronted, or even involve a “carefrontation”. How do you do this? How do you have a tough conversation that you have avoided or just plain don’t want to have? It c…

If you were to graph out what communication is, it would look like a vast interconnected web that goes on forever.

This episode is a case study and on-air coaching call on how to quickly pivot a…
 
Manipulative people have an arsenal of tactics they will use against you. Blame-Shifting is one of the big ones.

In order to combat the blame-shifters tactic, we will shine the light on the many forms o…
 
A question I get asked a lot is: How can I get paid to speak? One of the best ways is to speak and present for free. (This goes for both in-person and online presentations and trainings.) Why speak for free? You build relationships with event organizers who can then recommend you or pay you to speak at future events. You get to know other speakers …

This was the conversation we should all be having. There is a “new leadership” model that is emerging right now. One that is more humanistic, open and vulnerable. These uncertain times, the change we are experiencing, and the resulting anxiety, fear, and grief that is pervasive have sparked a new ‘communication mode’. That is a good thing. Molly Mc…

Summary: Oh-No she didn’t! It doesn’t matter who you are; mother Theresa, Oprah Winfrey, my Mom, you get mad. Not like ‘teenager forbidden to date a boy’ type mad - that’s a singular type of rage, more like a ‘defend your honor, correct a falsehood, shut down a misogynist’ type anger. Which can be a bad look for a professional. We are whole human b…

My friend Puja Madan, who is an expert on mindful leadership for entrepreneurs …

As I’ve worked with nearly 200 women over the past few years, I’ve seen how the same things trip us up, as well as what liberates us as women - our voices and our stories. Have you ever attended an event, heard a speaker, and thought, “I could give just as good as, if not a better, presentation. Why am I not up there?” Have you ever shied away from…

I was listening to a well-known, very popular male podcaster a few months ago and he put me over the edge when he said something like this (I'm paraphrasing): "Some people tell me I should have more diverse guests - women and people of color - but I don't think that should be a criteria for who I invite. I want the best person on a given topic no m…
 
Summary: “It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them” Mark Twain Gossip, griping, negativity, seems to be everywhere right now.
