S2 Ep 7: Building Visibility While Working Remotely
The world is so much more open to remote work, to being a digital nomad, and that's fantastic!  If that way of working is calling to you - great!  Go for it!  Bon voyage! But there are some really important things to keep in mind.  {Cue sad trombone} One of the most crucial concerns about remote work is the lack of VISIBILITY that comes with it.  And I don't just mean turning your camera off during video calls.  We're talking career-stalling, Wonder Woman's Airplane types of invisibility to the decision makers in your organization. Invisibility might be a superpower to some heroes, but it's NOT going to get you very far in your career.  If you work remotely, invisibility becomes an enemy to your success. In today's episode, we're going to discuss a number of strategic ways to keep yourself not only visible when working remotely, but to actually grow your career while working and living where you want.  From excelling in your current job to finding new opportunities for career growth and advancement, we're going to get tactical in this one.  Let's go!Want more?Subscribe to our mailing list at kellinottingham.comFollow the podcast on Instagram @careerspeakeasyWe also have a Youtube channel with more content!   If you're interested in working with me, either 1:1 or in conjunction with your company or organization, let's chat!  For a 30-minute complimentary consultation, email me at kelli.nottingham@gmail.com, go to Kellinottingham.com, or reach out to me on LinkedIn, so we can see if I'm a good fit for your needs.

S2 Ep 6: Mimic & Model (aka Let's Learn From Other People's Successes)
I’m all for individuality - doing things your own way!  Forging your own path through life!  Woo!  Unique Rules! But hey. If someone has learned a lesson the hard way, or has figured out an amazing technique for dealing with a situation, why reinvent the wheel?   We may be unique, but it doesn't mean we're remote desert islands in a sea of I Gotta Figure This Out By Myself.   We're more like an Archipelago of Shared Knowledge, washed in a sea of Human Experience.  This metaphor is going off the rails fast.  Ahem. In this episode, we'll learn how to learn from other people's best practices using the Mimic and Model approach.  This method will shorten our learning curve to improvement, by practicing and adapting the ways other people have succeeded.  Think of it as Incognito Mentoring.   So get out your magnifying glass - we're going to do some investigating!************I'm trying some new stuff with our episodes this year, and want to make sure this podcast is filling your needs.  Feedback is appreciated!  Email me at careerspeakeasy@gmail.com Subscribe to our mailing list at kellinottingham.comFollow the podcast on Instagram @careerspeakeasyWe also have a Youtube channel with more content!   If you're interested in working with me, either 1:1 or in conjunction with your company or organization, let's chat!  For a 30-minute complimentary consultation, email me at kelli.nottingham@gmail.com, go to Kellinottingham.com, or reach out to me on LinkedIn, so we can see if I'm a good fit for your needs.  You'll walk away with some clarity on your own situation, and we can decide at that point if you want to continue working with me.
