Playing the Corporate Game with Rochelle Janssens

Playing the Corporate Game with Rochelle Janssens
In this episode, we’ll dig into how women can play the corporate game better, leverage our natural abilities and strengths, and use them to our advantage. Plus, we’ll get my guest’s perspective on leadership, and how women have levers they may not pull.My guest is Rochelle Janssens from Brisbane, Australia. Rochelle works with quietly determined career women ready to move into their first or next leadership role so they can make a bigger difference in the corporate game.Becoming a leader as a woman is often a different journey than for men, and Rochelle believes it helps to know the current rules of the game, so we can use them to our advantage and eventually be in a position to change the practices to benefit everyone.Her experience has taught her that leadership is about who you are being, not what you are doing, so she works with her clients to become a leader from the inside out. As a result, rather than being overworked and overwhelmed, her clients shine as their best selves, attracting the right people and opportunities without the crazy hours and elevated stress levels.If you enjoy this episode and our discussion about playing the corporate game, please give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available.

Reclaim Your Identity by Starting Over with Avery Thatcher
Do you attach who you are to what you do for a living? When I was laid off from my last corporate gig, I didn’t know who I was for a while because I was no longer a team leader.Sometimes we need to start over and reinvent ourselves. And many women ask, “who am I now that things have changed?” So, I invited my guest to share her story with you.Avery Thatcher is CEO and founder of the Inner Stillness Outer Chaos Podcast and the Flow State Membership. When she started her career as a Registered Nurse working in ICU, she noticed that many patients were there because of illnesses and diseases linked to chronic stress.Starting over, she got out of the reactive side of medicine and started helping highly sensitive high achievers prevent burnout and reverse the adverse health effects of stress. After experiencing a significant health challenge in 2018, Avery had to learn to redefine her identity and grieve the loss of who she used to be.I thought hearing this story of starting over alongside her tips might help some of you.If you enjoy this episode, please subscribe to the podcast, and give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available.

Let Your Genie Out of the Bottle with Corbie Mitleid

Let Your Genie Out of the Bottle with Corbie Mitleid
As a career and life coach, I often hear women say they want to find meaningful work that aligns with their purpose and brings out their passion.But then ask, “so how do I find my purpose and passion?”That’s the million-dollar question! And I love to invite guests on this show to talk about that—because we get great insights and different perspectives, and then we get to decide for ourselves what fits and what doesn’t.Corbie Mitleid is a writer and visionary who carved her own path.And the path wasn’t easy. Two marriages, which didn’t last, and a constant search for the Partner Who Understood. A succession of jobs. A series of spiritual paths. Then, out of the blue, breast cancer—not once, but three times.Corbie’s life became a roller coaster with no brakes. But through it all, she learned to meet challenges head-on, always asking the next question and facing each new situation with strength, courage, and humor.Today, Corbie brings a complete toolbox to her work because she knows what it is to create a career out of experiences. While she’s now a full-time intuitive counselor and inspirational speaker, she says she’s had a career salad. The ingredients included being a published author, professional actress, television producer, radio personality, and executive recruiter. Corbie is also called the “power behind the throne” for many high-profile CEOs. It turns out that finding your purpose may include making a few stops.If you enjoy this episode, please give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available.

Make The Shift & Spark the Change! with Serena Sabala
We frequently talk about self-care on this show because busy professional women like us need to hear about it, sometimes more than once, and get different perspectives and approaches. We’re all different. Our situations are different. And what works for me may not work for you. But it’s essential to find what works, so we can show up every day at our best for our families and be inspired leaders who create a ripple effect of positive change for our organizations and communities. Does that sound like a tall order? Maybe not.That’s why I asked Serena Sabala to join us. Serena is a Certified Nutrition Consultant, Yoga Teacher, and Fitness Trainer who has studied wellness and nutrition for over a decade and has a unique, holistic approach to health. She is the author of the highly rated book “Make The Shift - A Proven Method for Busy Professionals to Transform their Health, Wellbeing, and Confidence.”Open your mind, and listen to Serena’s approach to health & well-being. If you enjoy this episode, please give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available.

The Accidental Caregiver with Kelli Bradley
We must strike a delicate balance between career and caregiving, especially when the need arises unexpectedly. And because we must have open and honest discussions at home and work about the impact of caregiving, I invited Kelli Bradley to join us. She has been there and walks the talk. Kelli is the founder and creator of The Devoted Daughter, an organization helping women find solutions to care for their aging parents. After landing the role of the family caregiver, Kelli saw a need in her community to help others in the same boat. So, she created and operated an in-home care company serving hundreds of families over eleven years.Kelli has a unique perspective on caregiving and valuable insights from caring for family members and hiring, training, and managing a professional in-home care company.  She serves her clients through workshops, speaking events, and digital courses; and published “Always Her Daughter”—part memoir and caregiver manual. If you enjoy this episode, please give it some love by commenting, sharing a review, or using the five-star rating where available.
