[Coaching] Do You Need to Name the Priority?

[Coaching] Do You Need to Name the Priority?
Are you pulled in so many directions you’re busy all day, but when the day ends you don’t feel like you accomplished much of anything? Just like you, the women I coach are in demand. They have teams that want their attention, clients to serve, and tasks that need to get done. I’ve been there myself on many occasions. There are different responses to this state of affairs. You might be in the camp of looking out at some point in the future. You convince yourself that once you get there, it will be a lot better. I did that for years and guess what? As that point in time got closer my calendar filled up and I had all new projects on my plate. This cycle perpetuated for a long time before I realized what I was doing. You might be researching to find new strategies for time management and productivity and making a few strides but still needing some relief. Or, you might have started to give up hope that it will get any better. Regardless of what camp you are in, you’re going to get a lot out of this on-air coaching call. I’m chatting with Madison who is wearing many hats as her company is experiencing and gearing up for even more growth. She and I talk through many of her responsibilities and strategize how to organize by priority and organize her calendar. We look at leveraging members of the team who are experienced and eager to do more. And there’s an added bonus, and what I believe may have been a pivotal point in our conversation. We also talked about what might be going on when a team member isn’t changing their behavior after you’ve given them feedback. If any of this is resonating with you, listen in. This is a good one!

[Coaching] Are They Really Judging You?

[Coaching] Are They Really Judging You?
Could anyone possibly meet the expectations you have for yourself? Many of the women I coach have such high expectations for themselves, they sacrifice health and happiness to meet them. Sometimes the driver is the thought that others are expecting a lot from you. But if you looked closely, is that true? Are others watching you and expecting you to overdeliver all the time? Or are you assigning them those judgments because in reality you’re judging yourself. I had a fantastic conversation with Andrea about trying to meet your own unrealistic expectations, delegating, having healthy boundaries, and asking for help. If you feel like you’re doing too much for everyone else, and not getting enough time for you, or for the people and things that are also important to you, listen in.

Facing Conflict Head On

Facing Conflict Head On
How would you describe your comfort level when it comes to confronting conflict? Do you look at it as an opportunity for growth and relationship building? Do you avoid it in the hopes that it will resolve on its own? Or do you find yourself somewhere in the middle? Perhaps at first observing and assessing the situation. But if it’s clear it’s not going away immediately you take steps to nip it in the bud. Some leaders choose to ignore conflict in the workplace in an attempt to “keep the peace.” Yet that can add fuel to the fire. By looking the other way, leaders create an atmosphere of non-trust. Addressing conflict early on is an important first step. A study by the American Management Association (AMA) found that managers spend 24% of their time resolving conflict. Instead of just “resolving” workplace conflict, transform it to cultivate a cutting-edge team that can effectively solve problems and develop creative new ideas. This episode covers facing conflict: how to address and mitigate it, and when to look to other professionals to step in. Resources Episode Show Notes: Transcript and links mentioned in this episode.

[Coaching] Constructively Dealing with Unconscious Bias

[Coaching] Constructively Dealing with Unconscious Bias
We all have unconscious biases. Men and women, young and old, people from every ethnic background and every socioeconomic class. While you may be able to catch one of your own implicit biases in a flash of awareness, it’s more likely someone else will point your biases out for you. Becoming aware of and removing your unconscious biases takes an openness to hear someone out. It takes reflecting on what they share with you, and considering behaving differently going forward. For many of us, critical feedback causes our defenses to go up. That's a natural human tendency. Because of this, it takes courage to point an unconscious bias out to another person. How the feedback is delivered matters if you want the other person to take in the feedback you are sharing with them. As a leader, you want to keep this in mind as you are preparing to talk to another person about an unconscious bias you've observed them display. This is what came up in a coaching session I had recently with, Jaime, a member of this community and a member of the military. The unconscious biases in others that are typically experienced by women leaders is around their competence. Even though women leaders score higher on competence than their male counterparts, women are still considered to be less competent than men. This is why mansplaining occurs and it's why a woman leader's reports and decisions are more likely to be questioned and second-guessed. How do you deal with this without losing your mind or your temper? Listen in. In this conversation Jaime shares her experiences and ultimately talks through the solution that feels right for her. I think her solution is going to resonate with you as well. Resources Episode Show Notes: Transcript and links mentioned in this episode.

How to Hold Others Accountable to Lead Effectively
Do you dread one-to-one meetings because you’ll be asking the other person to account for an outcome or their performance? Many leaders want to have high performing teams but overlook the fact that accountability is at the heart these teams. If you want your team to deliver on expectations or communicate when they can’t, you have to be able to hold others accountable. Additionally, you need to look at yourself and ask what kind of role model you are to your team? In this episode, we cover how your ability to hold others accountable impacts your team’s performance and how to get best out of your team.

You, Seeing from Multiple Perspectives

You, Seeing from Multiple Perspectives
Have you experienced the eye-opening magic of seeing from more than one perspective? When we are children, we believe we are the center of the universe. At that stage in life, we have a difficult time considering why someone would see things differently than we do. If fact, if someone didn’t agree with us, we made up a story about why this person could possibly not agree with our outlook. It takes work to shake out of this default way of thinking and start making a habit of considering how other people are seeing things. However, the reward of staying open-minded and seeing things from multiple perspectives is new ideas, new opportunities and new solutions that you may have missed if you only look at things from your own vantage point.  Now take this ability as an individual and add to it a diverse team of people who all see the world differently. If this team can respect and appreciate each other for the unique perspectives and experiences they all bring to the table, this is your dream team. In this episode, we’re going to cover the skill of considering and incorporating multiple perspectives as a leader, why it’s so important, and how you can incorporate it into your leadership.

[Coaching] You Are the Leader to Develop Other Leaders
The work I do with my clients often centers around adapting to a new role or promotion. It sounds easy, and many of my clients beat themselves up because they assumed it should be an easier transition than it actually is. Taking on a promotion typically looks like being further away from the hands-on work that is being done. Trying to stay close to the work, while coming from a good place of wanting to make sure the work his high quality, can overwhelm your to-do list and train some bad habits in your team. Each new role you take on requires you to shift the way you think of yourself and how you think you provide the highest value. This was something a woman in our community, T, realized while we were recording this on-air coaching session. Take a listen to this episode and let me know if any of this resonated with you.

Leadership Development for Women Needs to Change
Have you ever left a leadership development training feeling like it barely scratched the surface of what you needed? Or, that too much time was spent on competencies you’ve never had an issue with? You might have even had your concerns as a leader brushed aside or dismissed with comments such as, delegate that to your team, speak up more in meetings, brag more, or communicate clearly but don’t be too direct. All this without any guidance on how to navigate the bias, the double-standards, and the identity issues that emerge when we are asked to change our patterns of thought and behavior. The root of the problem is most leadership development training was not designed for women and fails to take women’s specific brain functions, societal conditioning or obstacles into consideration. In this episode we’re covering why leadership development for women is so important and why it needs to change. Resources Episode Show Notes: Transcript and links mentioned in this episode.

How are you at delivering unwelcome news to one of your team members, and then coaching them through the feedback?

Are You Leading by Example?
May 9 2022
Are You Leading by Example?
Are you leading by example? This is a trick question because the reality is you are always leading by example. The question is whether you want the people you lead to do what you are doing. Like it or not, people are watching what you're doing and they're listening closely to what you're saying. And, the higher you go up the leadership chain the bigger an example you become. There's a saying when you reach senior leadership, you are whispering from a megaphone. Your people are watching you closely to determine what is acceptable behavior and attitudes, and what is not. The question is, are you exemplifying the behavior that you would like to see in the people that you lead? Are your actions consistent with your message? Leading by example may not always be easy but it’s a must if you want the best chance of hitting your goals and having harmony in the workplace. In this episode we’re covering what it means to lead by example and how to gauge how effectively you are modeling the behavior you want to see.

Do You Feel Worthy to Invest in Yourself?
As with the last episode of Women Taking the Lead I’m asking, for your career, who do you go to for help and support? Help comes in many forms and from a variety of sources. Some help you can get for free and some help costs money. While I always recommend utilizing your free help when appropriate, and for as many things as you can, it’s important to know that free resources will only get you so far. We can get stuck in our careers or with a situation at work because we keep going back to the people in our lives whom will offer their help for free, but who don’t have the expertise to guide us through our challenges effectively. Knowing whom you can go to for what will save you time and energy, and not put any undue pressure on those in your support system who want to help, but can’t give you what you need. This episode will cover the types of career helpers you want to pay for, and how to utilize those people. Resources Episode Show Notes: Transcript and links mentioned in this episode.
