#026: Trying Not To Be Emotional At Work

For years I believed it was unprofessional to be emotional at work. I was taught that emotions have no place at work. And while things are changing, that is still the prevailing belief. But let’s question that belief for a second.

Is it really true that emotions have no place at work? The real problem isn’t the emotions. It’s how you react to your emotions that could make things messy for you.

In this week’s podcast episode, I want to talk about how to be effectively emotional at work so you can have a healthier professional experience without creating a mess you’ll have to clean up later.

#025: Moving From Manager To Leader

Making the transition from manager to leader is one of the biggest transitions in your career.

Everything you’ve done up to this point was about delivering results through your own work. That’s what you’ve been trained to do, and that’s what you’ve been rewarded for.

Now you’re in the position of being a leader of people, and what they need from you is guidance and support to get the job done.

So as any good leader would do, I’m going to help you figure out how to do that. I’ll give you the mindset shift that will make it easier to move from manager to leader. And I’ll offer three strategies to help you develop your action plan

#024: Leaving Your Potential On The Table

You don’t like to waste money. And you certainly don’t like to waste time. But what about your potential? Is that valuable to you? Do you consider it an asset?
Of course it is. Your potential is actually higher-order to time and money. Yet, I’d argue that we don’t treat it with the same care and concern.
In this episode, we explore the question: what would you do differently if your potential was your most valuable asset? We’ll cover how you know you’re leaving your potential on the table and what small changes you can make to make more efficient use of this valuable resource.

#023: 3 Categories Of Leadership You Need for Success

When you talk about leadership, you’re usually talking about leading people. It’s either the way you lead your team, or show up with your team.
However, there are two additional categories of leadership in your career that we don’t talk about so much; leading yourself and leading your goals.
In this episode, we’ll dive deeper into the top three categories of leadership you must prioritize in order to build a truly sophisticated career development strategy and continue your pace of growth. I’ll share what's included in each category, examples of how they show up and how to prioritize your effort across all three.

#022: Becoming The Leader You Want to Become

You know you need to make some changes to the way you lead in order to grow in your career. You’re willing to make the changes. It’s just not coming naturally and you can’t seem to get much sustained traction.
In this episode, I’m going to give you a simple strategy to become the leader you want to become quickly and sustainably. It’s going to let you start leading more naturally.

Plus, I’ll give you a few tricks to make sure everyone around you is naturally noticing the changes in you.

#021: Becoming Naturally Good at Anything

Being naturally good at anything is something you can learn. People who are naturally great at networking or leading or negotiating weren’t born that way. They became that way. In this episode, I’m going to share three steps to becoming naturally good at anything.

#019: Work Less And Get Ahead

When you’re younger it feels like working hard is what you’re supposed to do; you’re paying your dues and putting in your time. And working hard, worked. But you’re not a newbie anymore and it still feels like you’re working your butt off all the time. And not only are you working harder, but you’re not getting ahead as quickly as you used to.
You need to change strategies to one that offers a way better return on your effort. This podcast will show you how.
