Playing Small Moment

Style of Leadership

Although her leadership style has evolved over the years, Deedra is more lenient now and chooses to lead by example.

Current Leadership Challenge

Osayi was dreading going to work and she’d constantly ask herself what excited her. In trying different aspects of her creativity, she realized life is short and she needed to do something more interesting and exciting. So she moved to Nigeria where everything was an adjustment but the best decision she ever made.

Participatory leadership is Osayi’s style of leadership. She gets the team involved in decisions making, since she realizes she isn’t an expert at everything.

 

Current Leadership Challenge

The biggest challenge is finding well-qualified people for different positions.

Today we are talking about Time vs. Energy.

I don’t know if you can claim with full confidence that you have plenty of time but I have yet to hear that said or see it written anywhere.

We’re all wanting more time and we never seem to get it but I’m going to propose we’re looking for the wrong thing.

Rather than time, which is largely out of your control – how many of us have wished for an extra hour or two in the day? It never happens, does it?

If you’re like me trying to control time, you take things off your schedule only to find other things have filled the gap and you still don’t have any extra time, you’ve only got a new routine.

Rather than wishing for more time, enough time, I propose you seek to have more energy.

The coaching process I use with my clients is called the Core Energy Coaching process. At its very root is the science that we are all made of energy and that our beliefs, thoughts, feelings and actions have an energetic signature that either depletes or restores us.

All day long we are thinking thoughts that either gives us energy or we are thinking thoughts that take our energy away.

This phenomenon was written about in the book, The Power of Full Engagement, by Jim Loehr and Tony Schwartz.

The subtitle of this book is “Managing Energy, Not Time, Is the Key to High Performance and Personal Renewal.”

How many times have you carved out time to work on a project only to find when that open time came that you were too cranky, tired, hungry or restless to focus on the task and get it done?

The reason you couldn’t focus is your energy was tapped out. You needed to do something to restore your energy before you could use any on your project.

These are the times you find yourself reaching for your phone or going on the computer to check facebook or watch Youtube videos. One of my favorites is of a baby panda bear sneezing. It’s hilarious.

We instinctively do this because we want to find something that will calm us down, let us check out for a while or find a good laugh.

These strategies work in the short-term but they are not the best source of energy so you end up spending precious time trying to gain a small amount of energy to make it to the end of the day.

The key is to keep your energy high so when the time presents itself to get something done, you are all-in and ready to go.

Rather than constantly responding reactively to lost energy try adding in some activities that will proactively renew your energy and/or prevent your energy from getting stolen.

Here is a list of things that proactively renew your energy and obviously their opposites are the energy stealers. I’ve broken them down into categories but let me be clear, they all overlap.

Physical energy: sleep, good nutrition, exercise or activity, stretching, conscious breathing, and good hydration.

Mental energy: keep life simple; minimize decision-making and make decisions in a timely manner. Read books, watch videos and have conversations that stimulate your mind (TED talks are great for this), and actively seek to communicate clearly to prevent confusion and ask that those around you do the same.

Emotional and spiritual energy: activities that bring you joy, spending time with happy, positive people, spending time with animals and being out in nature, being of service and taking time for reflection.

Would you add anything to this list? Go to the post that accompanies this episode and leave a comment letting us know what you do to restore your energy and keep it high.

I hope this was helpful and helps you to have a more energetic week ahead.

Thank you all for being a part of this journey and here’s to your success.

Caitlin Pyle is a 29-year-old former desk zombie, business transformation consultant, and creator of ProofreadAnywhere.com, home of the Transcript Proofreading: Theory and Practice™ online course on how to work from anywhere by proofreading transcripts for court reporters. An authentic, yet effective content marketer, Caitlin turned Proofread Anywhere into a 6-figure blog/business within 3 months, and her total business revenue reached $1 million within 15 months. To teach others her unique method of building platforms, carving out authority, and monetizing digital products, Caitlin developed TheWorkAnywhereLife.com blog and the Monetize Your Genius™ course.

Playing Small Moment

In October 2014, Caitlin realized she was playing small when her husband would tell her about the information he was learning in his entrepreneurial classes. Caitlin didn’t think what she had to offer was going to be able to help people tremendously. It’s often the things that you are great at that you undervalue the most.

The Wake Up Call

November 2014, Caitlin finally bought the domain name and wrote the eBook. She didn’t want to put too much time and effort into it at first because Caitlin didn’t realize how much of an impact she could have on others.

Style of Leadership

Caitlin is friendly and doesn’t like to put herself above others. She is all about living life humbly.

What Are You Excited About?

On Memorial Day, Caitlin launched Legal Transcription on Transcribe Anywhere. She is currently working on other projects, but she is not ready to divulge that information just yet. Please stay tuned. Caitlin wants everyone to know: if you are tired of working at a desk job or cannot fathom working for anyone else, please check out her courses to begin your carefree career and not pay for someone else's Escalade.

A lifelong entrepreneur, inventor, author and coach, Don Hutcheson, created the Discover Your Talent—Do What You Love podcast to help people find their talents and use them to build a career of success, satisfaction and freedom. Don has never had a “boss” and has created 6 innovative companies in advertising, publishing, coaching and career planning – and now on the Internet – over the last 35 years.

A Women Who Has Influenced Your Life

The most influential women in Don’s life were his mother and grandmother. In his experience, men can learn about compassion, creativity, and collaboration from women, which are the defining traits of great leaders.

What He Sees That Hold Women Back

Don says he noticed, unfortunately that when women speak up they get called the B-word. It’s about balance for men and women finding a life of success, satisfaction, and freedom. Life shouldn’t be all about money, power, control, and wealth; it should be about spiritual, emotional, and metaphysical nurturing. Identifying what success means to you and what leadership looks like in your life.

What He Has Learned from Women

According to Don it is difficult for women because they deal with biases. Women need to realize what the best strategy is in an intelligent, wise, and present way by making a contribution and getting their needs met without having to sellout or giving in.

The Necessary Changes

The growing awareness of the Internet has a profound effect on us all. People can see highly articulate women stepping out of their box with the use of social media.

What Are You Excited About?

Don’s business partner and long-time ally Jan created the Discover Your Own Talent Podcast about a year ago with over hundreds of episodes on people sharing their life’s journeys. They are going to be offering membership groups for different segments, a variety of courses, and tools for subscribers to access.

She founded FocusOnStyle.com in 1999. Although her impressive resume looks like a who’s who of media household names, her heart is with helping entrepreneurs refine their chic style to confidently pull their look together with ease.

Playing Small Moment

Sharon noticed at a young age that she was playing small. While working at a plastic trade magazine, Sharon overheard a lady say that she would not work out because she was too pretty. Sharon realized she would always have to prove her worth, which she needed to overcome to propel her business forward. Sharon couldn’t do it all and needed to learn how to delegate and work with a team. So she ended up hiring a business coach.

The Wake Up Call

The light bulb went off when Sharon was working seven days a week/fifteen hour days; she noticed she was doing all the grunt work in her business. Sharon slowly began to realize she needed to hire responsible people that could do their job effectively to help her when needed.

Style of Leadership

Sharon is straightforward and to the point. She practices what she preaches.

Jen MacQuarrie is a Habit Success Coach and founder of Bright Habits. She helps people achieve their biggest life goals step by step, one habit at a time. Jen understands the power of habits because she turned her own life around by creating a 5 AM wake up habit for daily exercise and personal development. Jen is also a musician and lead vocalist with her band Magnetic. Jen loves helping others to discover their passions and create habits that will support their success. 

Playing Small Moment

As a wife and mom with a corporate position in 2011, Jen found herself with a victim mindset, just moving through the motions. She was not participating in anything that she was passionate about. Jen was basically living to please everyone else, without any time for herself. Eventually this took a toll on her mentally and she became resentful. After some soul-searching, Jen watched an Oprah video about finding your life purpose and was inspired to make some changes.

The Wake Up Call

Once Jen had seen The 5am Wake Up, that became the biggest moment of change for her. After that video, she knew what she had to do to change and began her new morning ritual: setting her alarm, doing her workout and practicing with her guitar.

Style of Leadership

Jen leads with quiet confidence. She would describe herself as an ambivert who leans more towards introvert. This allows Jen to listen and understand what people are going through so she can gently guide them. Jen is also big on leading by example.

What Are You Excited About?

Jen has started a one-on-one coaching to help her students change their habits on a small level so that they can achieve a goal that may seem out of reach. She is also showing people the power of the 5am Wake Up.

Leadership Practice

The 5am Wake Up makes Jen a better leader. She is always learning, reading, attending trainings to better her knowledge to help her clients.

Advice For Younger Self

Don’t worry so much what everyone else thinks. Jen was a people pleaser and would worry about everyone else’s opinions. Go forward with the things you are most passionate about.

Welcome to this community of women taking the lead!

Our private facebook group is getting more action. I am getting better at starting conversations and you lovely ladies have been very generous in sharing your experiences, practices and resources in the group. It’s like we have our own mini podcast episodes going on there. So, if you’re not in there yet and are interested in joining in on the conversation go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/womentl/.

Sponsorship Opportunities

I also wanted to mention that I am looking for businesses who want to collaborate in supporting Women Taking the Lead and getting their own name out there in the process. I’m already in discussions with a couple of women who I would really love to introduce you to so keep your fingers crossed. If this is an opportunity that interests you go to https://womentakingthelead.com/sponsor-opportunities/

Full Disclosure

I am scared to go big but I want it so bad!

Can you relate to that?

Like a lot of you I know I am capable of so much more but the fear of the unknown and what life would look like if I started playing even bigger causes me to hold back and keep it to myself.

And here’s the bold truth, said openly and directly: I would love to work with you.

I want to be a partner with you in your journey to the top. I want to help you discover your superpowers, identify and honor your values and challenge you to do the next scary thing, knowing I’m cheering you on the whole way.

I’ve been working with women all over the globe. Online video conferencing is a magical thing and allows us to have virtual face-to-face conversations, no matter where we live.

Some things my clients say about me is that I instill a belief in themselves that they didn’t have before working with me; a belief and a confidence that they are fully capable to achieve their goals and a certainty that they will.

What My Clients Tell Me

My superpower is identifying and helping other people to see their own superpowers. And when you own your superpowers and realize the value they have it boosts your confidence and makes you want to go right out and use those superpowers.

My clients also tell me I help them to get focused.

There are so many different strategies and actions we can take to try to hit our goals but which ones will yield the best results for you, with the least amount of effort so you can either increase your bandwidth or find more personal time?

When you are not diverting your energy in too many places you can produce more results.

I work with entrepreneurial women who feel called to something greater.

She has a vision of success that she has not yet attained.

What I’ve come to realize is my clients don’t just want to do well; they want to be in the upper ranks. They want to be the expert in their industry, the person everyone else looks up to. They work really hard, they know their stuff and they in turn want to help others to achieve as well.

This woman comes to me because she’s frustrated. Although she is in a place where those around her would congratulate her, she hasn’t hit that level yet that would signify to her that she has “made it.”

She usually finds her current tasks to be tedious and boring. She’s feeling a calling, a compulsion to “do more” so the everyday tasks remind her that she’s not there yet.

She’s getting restless and looking for distractions. She may be starting to lean into the quick coping methods of food, alcohol, shopping or exercise.

She’s feeling overworked. She’s trying so hard to play bigger with very traction it’s leaving her exhausted.

She has high standards and high expectations of herself and that projects out onto others so she gets annoyed when other people aren’t doing their part. You’ll hear her say things like, “I just want them to do their job” or “why can’t they just do what they said they would do.”

What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.

The success strategy that has always worked before and gotten her this far won’t get her any further.

She has to change her mindset so she can change her strategy, and she needs to overcome some fears.

My question to you is, are you this woman?

Because this is exactly where I come in and can be of assistance.

I can help you tease out of your current strategy exactly what’s working and what’s not working and together we create a new strategy customized to get you the results you are looking for.

I would love to partner with you!

If this fired you up or made you really scared go to womentakingthelead.com/coaching to get started.

If this description doesn’t exactly match you, no worries. My larger mission is to support all women to own their power and step up as leaders in whatever area of their life they would like to make a difference and that’s what this podcast is all about.

Thank you all for being a part of my journey and here’s to your success!

Melinda Chen is a sales coach, helping female entrepreneurs sell to big clients. She is also a sales executive with an impressive sales track record of 8 figures. Her company, Women Making Big Sales, allows female entrepreneurs to start connecting and sell to big clients in 5 weeks. When she first started her sales career after university, she wanted to know everything about selling. So, she spent years reading over 20 books in sales, made over 5,000 cold calls and worked with agents, reps and corporate clients around the world. Since then, she has mastered the art of selling to big companies and made sales in the Americas, Europe and Asia, covering a wide range of industries. She is inspired to help women take control of their lives by going for big clients, closing important deals and dramatically expanding their business.

Playing Small Moment

Melinda went through many struggles when she first started selling. She was fresh out of college and working with people that had been in the industry for years. Melinda was nervous while attending a networking event and she even made up cards for talking points. Melinda was getting treated like she was the new kid on the block, so to avoid attending these events she began cold calling. Melinda learned she didn’t have to take things so personally and that the reason they treated her that way was because she was the new kid.

The Wake Up Call

Melinda was the queen of the cold calls, but she wasn’t reaching her sales goals. On a rainy night, while still at the office, she ran into one of the senior executives. He asked her how things were going, and she explained her process. The executive told her it was taking the same amount of time for his sales. He told her not to waste her time going after the small clients and to go for the larger ones instead.

Style of Leadership

Working with a lot of female entrepreneurs, Melinda learned demonstrating things is far more teachable than telling.

What Are You Excited About?

Heart of Sales is a 5-week program where Melinda shows people how to sell step-by-step.

Leadership Practice

Melinda listens and empathizes with her clients.
