Let's talk business! ‘Saying no’ is a hardcore practice (The Basics I)

LET'S TALK BUSINESS! Bi-weekly call for female badasses. Topic of this week: Asserting boundaries The first part of “The Basics”. A series of 3 where we talk about enablers for good performance. This talk is all about asserting boundaries, or, saying no. Saying no to co-worker requests (aka people pleasing), to additional work that threatens your work-life balance, but also saying no to perfectionism. Moving up in the hierarchy means being smart about your time and not getting caught up in too much operational work. Also, stop catching balls that others keep dropping (because they know you will manage for them). Here is some additional reading for the keen ones: ‘Saying no’ is a hardcore practice - https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/saying-hardcore-practice-incredible-results-angela-huser/ See you on Sunday!

Let's talk business! Overusing brain, underusing body (The Basics II)

LET'S TALK BUSINESS! Bi-weekly call for female badasses. Topic of this week: The body as a super power. The second part of “The Basics”. A series of 3 where we talk about enablers for good performance. This talk is all about body and power. The importance of our body usually goes unnoticed in intellectual desk work. Women in corporate jobs are often incredibly disconnected from their bodies which is a great source of power. I am talking about the feeling of gravity. A feeling of grounded confidence that certainly does not come from the head. That gravity directly translates to feeling more confident, being less stressed and vulnerable to criticism. There is a couple of things to be explored and reminded of here. We talk about noticing when you are getting into your head and how to reconnect with that bodily gravity that makes you unstoppable. Basically. See you on Sunday!

Let's talk business! Find a mentor (The Basics III)

Needs a location

LET'S TALK BUSINESS! Bi-weekly call for female badasses. Topic of this week: Find a mentor The third part of “The Basics”. A series of 3 where we talk about enablers for good performance. You can work your ass off to get good results and visibility. For those with that kind of career ownership, having a mentor can make efforts even smoother. Mentors are not only a great way to get better at your job, learn more about the function and discuss challenges, mentors are also great door openers and career sponsors. Everyone should have at least one! Independent of career level. Now, not every company provides a formal mentoring program but that should also not stop you. Most importantly, we will talk about how to find a great mentor inside and/or outside the organisation. Secondly, we talk about how to set up a mentor-mentee relationship where both profit and believe me, mentors get a lot out of it too. See you on Sunday!

Let's talk business! The Upper Limit Problem

Needs a location

LET'S TALK BUSINESS! Bi-weekly call for female badasses. Topic of this week: UPPER LIMIT Problems We have an internal limit, like a benchmark, to how much we can receive - how much success, money or love. When we surpass our internal benchmark, for example if we land an amazing business deal, we unconsciously bring ourselves down again. We create drama in our relationship, get sick and some people even have accidents. This is called the 'upper limit'. In this call we spot when the upper limit is at work and what to do about it.
