Show Notes

How often do we allow our limiting beliefs and those crazy negative talks in our head shut us down and make a u-turn on our journey's? How often do we sit in the comfort of complacency because it is easiest and most familiar to us? Well, in episode #10, I'm gifting you a pause and taking you through how to write your own "Journey Story."  You are invited to listen in...and then meet me on the virtual dance floor because....I'm celebrating my #smallwin of hitting 10 podcast episodes AND 1K listens for a single episode....yep! If you don't celebrate, who will? I'll see you there!

 

Whether a person, a circumstance, or a situation, we are not defined by either. This episode is a reminder from me to you!  It is a reminder that your journey is yours alone and.....the best part about it is that you have the authority to write it, make a u-turn, should you choose, own it, and then you also hold the permission slips to give only to those who you deem worth to help you walk, run, or climb your journey....YOUR WAY!  Today, we start the process of writing you journey!  Are you ready?

In this episode's coaching, the soul-work is mapping a path that has one or a few junctions along the journey, then identifying and facing fear head on.  I use Stop 1 in my book, The Intersection of You & Change (https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book), pages 12 and 13) as a reference for consideration in framing your thoughs around your journey.  In cocktails, we give a cheers to our small wins and the nuggets that you pulled away and then in conversations, I answer some questions that you have sent in. 

Sidenote:  Y'all are HILARIOUS!!!! Do I write all of the exercises and really do them with you?  What has been the toughest part of my business journey? Hmmm, they are good questions, but y'all really keep me in stitches.  I think I laughed most of the episode.

The affirmation that kicks us off is I am grounded in my values and principles and will only shift to soar further and farther along my journey.  I welcome each of you (minute 1:45), gift a bit of coaching (minute 3:43) and soul-work (minute 9:50), celebrate your takeaways and highlight the greatness you are during cocktails (minute 24:26) then conversations (minute 26:05) , which is where I answer a few of your questions, laugh a bit, and challenge you to answer them as well. Grab your CC&C journal and #letsgo.

S1E9-Leadership Untapped: How to Climb the L.E.A.D. Ladder (with Mario Scott)

My first male guest, Mario Scott  is joining us at the kitchen table to talk all-things leadership.  A leadership expert working with executives and teams to lead more efficiently and effectively, he leaves us with a few laughs and take-aways on how we can begin to lead differently - from the inside out.   How do you define leadership?  Would you say that your leadership is untapped?  Are you leading yourself the same way you are leading those who are following you?  Hmmmm!  This episode is packed with nuggets that you can implement NOW, whether leading at work, home, or life.  From me gifting 4 strategies to climb, what I call, the L.E.A.D. ladder, to Mario adding on the notion of leading from the inside out, we talk redefining leadership, the idea of proving yourself as a leader, assessing how you are showing up for the leader within you, for your clients, and even how your leader at work/school is showing up...hmmmmm.  We even talk leadership at home and recognizing the balance that some women must still make when it comes to leadership.  This is a no-miss episode that you will want to grab you CC&C journal for, forward to a friend, and assess how you are showing up! The affirmation leading this episode is I am in touch with my thoughts and mindful of my actions.  This episode will challenge you with the question, Are You? I welcome each of you (minute 1:00), gift a bit of coaching (minute 4:05) and soul-work (minute 5:23), celebrate your takeaways and highlight the greatness you are during cocktails (minute 12:08) then invite Mario to conversations (minute 13:49) with a rich conversation on all-things leadership!  It's an episode ...
