The Overwhelmed Leader - Kate Davies
Why do successful entrepreneurs reach a point of overwhelm and what are the first steps to moving forward?Kate gives us her insight into why business owners can hit a ceiling and a feeling of exhaustion, even when they're reaching the point of seeing real success. How can you manage the overwhelm and being on that brink of growth where you wonder 'Can I really do this?' all the time. When you feel frazzled, the constant self talk and 'mind monkeys' rise up, this can be exactly the time to look to grow and expand and let the old stories and the old version of you go.Self-doubt and sabotage are big players when it's time to uplevel and it doesn't have to stay this way as there is no creativity without vulnerability. This vulnerabilty can cause feelings of exposure that can make you feel exhausted and you might feel like it's falling apart when it's really coming together!What's the balance between being self-led and needing leadership from others?How important is it to implement your self-care and use your energy wisely?All this and more as I discuss and debate with Kate and shine the light for women to move forward and rise up to meet their own dreams. Kate Davis is a business leadership mentor, an ICF certified coach, a business architect and change manager with 25 years of experience in mentoring and leading teams.https://www.katedavis.nethttps://www.facebook.com/katedaviscoachhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/katedaviscoach/Your Host, Teresa Brooks is a transformational Business & Mindset coach and founder of COACH Magazine & Podcast.

When they feel backed into a corner, challenged or have lots of inner talk then the Alpha female emerges - but this is often a struggle and doesn't feel good.Building the considersation and courage to communication can really help to soothe this element and help women to be really confident in themsleves.  Also the question of identity and some women can feel like they are lost themselves along the way...How can women be vulnerable and open-minded and hold their viewpoint without feeling the 'battle'? Jodie is a qualified Executive Coach and Leadership Mentor.

Through this she learnt the power of connection through story as she connected with all kinds of different people.From here, she grew a super successful business but  a coach, businesswoman and human she knew she needed to set herself free from some of her own blocks and she set about recreating herself and diving deeper into changework.

What is it that stops us? Then many things start to come up and block the flow of this. The fear of rejection,  the fear of ridicule and so many other blocks are  all patterns from the subconscious, usually developed in childhood.
