We are unpacking a big topic today. We’re exploring developmental trauma broadly and child poverty trauma specifically, and the impact it has on leaders.

Clinical Professional Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Nikki Yardy joined me to create more awareness around this topic and how you can explore this topic as an individual and support others as a leader.

In this episode Nikki and I:

·         Discuss manners, etiquette, and class levels in society

·         Explore the concept of poverty trauma and its impacts on identity and self-worth

·         Define developmental and complex trauma and its influence on Imposter syndrome in the workplace

·         Underscore power of EMDR and its impact on trauma recovery

You may find this episode speaks directly to your own experience but even if you don’t relate to growing up poor or having experienced any childhood trauma, chances are someone on your team has. And while other peoples’ experiences and their journeys are their own, having more information on this topic could give you insights on how to be a better leader to them.

Have you ever wondered why women often find themselves juggling a multitude of tasks and responsibilities both at home and in the workplace?

Why is it that women seem to be burdened with an invisible load that is attached to the roles traditionally assigned to them?

This episode aims to shed light on the concept of the "mental load" carried by women and how it differs from their male counterparts. We will explore the various dimensions of this complex issue, its historical roots, its impact on women's lives, and the urgent need for change in societal norms.

Are you ready to redefine failure and discover how to tap into confidence?

I’m chatting with Dr. Brittney Ezell, a former athlete and motivational speaker, who shares her unique perspective on failure, courage, and quitting. Here are the key takeaways from this thought-provoking discussion:

1. Failure is Not the End. Brittney emphasizes that failure is not the opposite of success but an integral part of it. It's an event, not a quality of a person. Instead of fearing failure, we should embrace it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

2. Courage is a Choice. Courage isn't an inherent trait; it's a choice we make when faced with challenges. By acknowledging that courage can be summoned when needed, we can build our confidence over time.

3. Confidence is Rooted in Past Success. Confidence is not something we can instantly generate. It's a product of our past successes. Building confidence is like stacking small wins, which eventually lead to a strong belief in oneself.

4. The Importance of Mentorship. Surrounding yourself with mentors who hold up a mirror to your potential can be transformational. They help you see your unique strengths and capabilities.

5. Quitting vs. Pivoting. Quitting is giving up on yourself; it's discarding your skills, experiences, and unique qualities. Pivoting, on the other hand, is about redirecting your path while retaining your core self.

Dr. Brittney Ezell will be a keynote at The Maine Women's Conference on October 25 in Portland, Maine. This conversation is a little taste of what she is going to share at the conference and I encourage you to come to Maine, come to the conference and see Brittany in person.

How is the new season impacting you?

You may be VERY aware of these changes (Hello new school year!). Or, only mildly considering the change.

Before the fall, Q4, or winter holidays fully ramps up, let's take a moment to go into the season mindfully.
