#08 | Unpopular Conversations: 5 Key Steps to Having Difficult Conversations with More Ease


70% of employees avoid tough conversations with their boss, colleagues, and direct reports. There is a huge cost to not talking about what’s most difficult, there is an average of $7,500 per conversation lost in time and resources. 

Conversations today can be a powder keg of issues that can result in tough conversations – overwhelming workloads, insufficient balance of work, not enough people to handle the work, variances in technology savviness and use, generational differences, and a diverse workforce with varying cultural backgrounds. Resolving these and other issues often requires having conversations that may be difficult, tough, and uncomfortable. Join me as I reveal how to engage in conversations that are difficult, tough, and uncomfortable to create trust, respect, and safety. In this episode, I’ll share breakthrough ideas for not taking the conversation personally which will allow you to be more influential and impactful.

#07 | Unveiling Caregiving: Navigating Love, Pain, and Resilience.


The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregivers conducted a study in 2021 which revealed that one in five full-time workers serves as family caregivers. Juggling multiple responsibilities in work and life strains individuals, particularly those bearing caregiving roles, leading to early departures from work, unexpected absences, compromised work quality, and even loss of income. In this episode, I open up about the profound journey of caregiving. As COVID blurred the lines between work and life, the spotlight on caregiving intensified.

Join me as I share stories of navigating this uncharted territory and offer insights gleaned from personal experiences. From shattered routines to unanticipated medical hurdles, explore how caregiving reshapes relationships and tests our emotional limits. In this candid and heartfelt episode, I unveil the dual nature of pain and humor, and the delicate dance between love and exhaustion. If you’ve been touched by the role of a caregiver, let’s navigate this path together.

#06 | How To Truly Be an Advocate of Diversity.


Communication is tough today since language is full of nuance and when you want to be an advocate of different genders, races, and ethnicities it can be challenging at best. Each of us were raised in families and cultures with our own particular set of values, experiences, and assessments of what it means to be a human being in this world having a human experience. That lens shapes how we think and perceive the world and the inherent actions we decide to take. Unless those lenses are examined and re-examined, it may be impossible to shift consciousness.

Join me in exploring with tangible steps how you as a leader, leading a diverse employee base who want to have a workplace that demonstrates equity, take impactful actions that match your positive intention.

#05 | Simple Recognition: Makes Big Strides in Employee Retention.


Employee recognition is the key to literally transforming employee retention, well-being, and profitability. Data shows that an employee who has been recognized is 63% more likely to stay at their current job within the next three to six months. From a survey of 1700 employees, 69% said that even better rewards and recognition would encourage them to stay. It is a basic human need to know we are doing a great job and yet many organizations put this key strategic imperative on the back burner. Even if leaders provide recognition, 53% say it’s not authentic or equitable.

Join me as I explore why is employee recognition the missing link to having your valued employees remain at your organization and key strategies for ensuring your most valued resource is honored and appreciated. Enjoy!

The concept of legacy seems massive to most. If we don’t have our name on the wall of a building or the wing of a hospital, our legacy may seem elusive.
