45: Overcoming Stigmas and Stereotypes with Keisha Shields
She Doesn’t Settle
On today’s episode, I am just so excited to introduce you all to one truly amazing woman who will both educate and inspire you. Keisha Shields is an executive and leadership adviser who shows women how to finally let go of other people's expectations of what their life should be and how to show up authentically in every way, with zero apologies. She specializes in how stigmas, stereotypes, grief and trauma can keep high-achieving women from using their voice to build the legacy, success and wealth they want, on their terms. One reason that Keisha is such a huge success in her business is that, as the wife of someone who has been sentenced to life in prison, she knows all about stigmas and stereotypes, and, more importantly, exactly how to move beyond them to show up authentically. Keisha begins our conversation by sharing her backstory, the stigmas and stereotypes she felt, the physical and emotional impact of her fear of having her story discovered, and her reasons for deciding to stay with her husband. She describes the two different worlds in which she found herself, her approach to friendships both then and now, and the transition she made to showing up as her true self. Together, we discuss the stories we make up about how others see us, and Keisha talks about her current business, the traits she displayed as a child that are still with her today, how she’s actually doing these days, and what is next for her. At the conclusion, I share with you my greatest takeaway from this incredibly personal and inspiring conversation, and I encourage you to share yours with me as well. Let’s face it, we all have some aspect about ourselves which we’re hiding for fear of the judgment others may pass upon us. Whatever that aspect is, there’s a very good chance that it is not of the same magnitude as Keisha’s, which makes her story of overcoming stigmas and stereotypes both powerful and inspiring on a whole other level, and one that we all need to hear today.

Women's leadership experts, Keisha Shields and Nikki Innocent, discuss the importance of owning your own legacy. Keisha shares experiences of having her identity defined by the perceptions and actions of others. She grew up being told that she was " too much" and began to caution herself before speaking, then she did the work of breaking free of that conditioning to live fully as her most authentic self. Her confidence is infectious. Keisha talks about her experience of being the youngest, the only female and the first Black executive at the "boy's club" that was her last employer. Nikki & Keisha discuss the realities of Keisha's partner being incarcerated, both in the obstacle of physical distance and in navigating socialized stereotypes. This conversation also touches on all things money -- Keisha explains how the appropriate allocation of resources leads to intergenerational legacy. And last, but most certainly not least, if you are someone that is interested in gender equity in the workplace, you'll enjoy these two women's leadership experts deep dive into the systemic & conditioned dynamics that hold women back from leading and how we can overcome them. Keisha Shields is a personal & business adviser to women leaders and is known for giving her clients huge “aha’s” moments. Keisha uses her business savvy and intuitive presence & awareness to help clients claim their space as more highly visible leaders, to find and own their voices publicly, say what they think without fear, and integrate their personal successes and stories profitably into their work.

EP291: Distinctions In Leadership, Story Telling and Transparency with Keisha Shields
Embodied with Elizabeth DiAlto
Keisha Shields is on the show today. We explored leadership in depth and she provided some incredible distinctions around transparency, storytelling and oversharing. Her big truth was around issues leaders have and the difficulty of "claiming space." We talked about different types of leaders, how people come to their true center and the distinction between privacy and secrecy. Keisha shared a bit of her story, along with her practice of being an open chapter, but not an open book, which I loved, and we also explored the value of sharing our stories and storytelling. We got into discerning when it's valuable to share the story of an experience, or the story of the impact the experience had on us, the difference between healthy and unhealthy validation and determining if and when we are safe ourselves or we are protecting someone else's safety. This is a really smart, fiery, and fun conversation, enjoy!
