Success Through Collaboration

Success Through Collaboration

I have long been a fan of collaboration and creating win/win/win environments. When we shift our sole focus off ourselves and create space to support and lift up others in the process of reaching our goals, magic happens. Succeeding together creates and strengthens an infrastructure that supports exponential growth.

One of my most recent collaborations has come in the form of a book: Success University For Women In Leadership. 

What makes this particular collaboration so special to me is that (1) I personally know most of the other authors in this book (2) it helps us all bring our book/author goals to fruition simultaneously and  (3) the value of what each author shares will have a tremendous positive impact on women around the world.

Your quest for organizational excellence is camouflaging the deep-rooted problem that’s leaving you feeling stressed and overwhelmed… the thing that’s zapping your energy and stealing your joy.

To those on the outside it appears you are super-efficient. Your reputation is that of a woman who gets things done. But if someone were to pull back the curtain they would see that its coming at an extremely high cost.  It’s draining the life out of you and sucking your soul. 

Finding a lasting, meaningful solution hinges on addressing the right problem.

Mastering The Guilt-Free 'No'

Mastering The Guilt-Free 'No'

Why does saying 'NO' trigger guilt?

You probably know that in order to create success on your terms you should adopt the practice of saying ‘no’ more than you say ‘yes;’ it’s the only way to make room for the really great stuff.

But because you feel pressured or fear being judged or plainly fall into people-pleasing mode, you find yourself saying ‘yes’ when you really want to say ‘no.’ (I get it! I’ve been there.)

I'm sure that somewhere along the way you've had someone tell you, "No is a complete sentence." And I don't disagree with that but if you aren't feeling comfortable enough to step into that practice quite yet, here is alternate way you can ease into it.
