Corporate Culture and Wellness: Finding Common Ground (Part III)


"Female leaders are exceptional at breaking barriers and leading the way, but often at a cost. I speak from personal experience when I say that prioritizing our health is essential. We push ourselves to be examples, to break generational cycles, but we must remember not to neglect our own well-being. Let's make the necessary changes before it's too late, taking charge of our health, our decisions, and ultimately, how they impact every aspect of our lives.

My 3 Step Process For Identifying and Overcoming Burnout

Burnout is a complex state.

There's SO much misinformation around what burnout is and what it isn’t. It’s easy to get confused. 

When you’re ambitious and you've achieved your goals, you may find yourself constantly looking for more. You forget that you’re human!

It’s important to remember that there are small steps we can take to make sure we’re in alignment and getting enough rest. 

But we also have to remember, burnout is usually tied to workplace stressors.

In this blog, I want to share some of my thoughts on the importance of saying no.

ESPECIALLY as a leader! 

I've had issues with saying no in the past, and so have many of the clients I’ve worked with. We’ll talk about the importance of saying no, how to…

No one is born an amazing leader.

How To Improve Your Workplace Culture By Unlearning Toxic Positivity

As a leader, you probably hear time and time again about the importance of having a growth mindset. We’re told that it’s important to have a positive outlook and to be able to shift our perspective. 

But is it ever possible to take it too far? 

In my opinion, it definitely is. When we take these ideas too far, we wander into the realm of toxic positivity. 

Denying reality and forcing ourselves to be “positive” all the time can have detrimental effects.

The Top 6 Limiting Beliefs That Sabotage Successful Delegation

Do you struggle with knowing how to delegate?

Feeling resistant to give up control?

Worried no one else will do it like you do?

If so, I want you to know - this is 100% normal.

As humans, we struggle with asking for help. Our brains simply don’t like it. We don’t enjoy opening up and getting vulnerable with others. Sometimes we might even feel like asking for help is a sign of weakness, or will diminish our authority in the workplace.

I’ve been in this exact same spot myself. You hire people be…

A Practical Guide to Checking in With Your Goals Using 3 Steps

We all have goals. Whether they're business goals, health goals, fitness goals, or something else entirely. 

Having goals for yourself is incredibly important. Without goals, you wouldn’t have a compass to navigate your business and life. 

But something I’d noticed with many of my clients is that many people set goals, but very few continuously check in on how they’re doing with said goals. It’s easy to completely lose sight of whether or not what you’re doing is actually working, and leading …

I'm not going to update this sh*t again! 

I was uncomfortable and felt like I had failed another test as a coach who had decided to leverage social media to grow her business.

I had tried several different opt-in options and felt like an online quiz would be the best because the leaders I supported had very little time, but it didn't seem like I was moving in the right direction. 

After taking a few months break from the quiz, I decided to give it another go.
