S2.E7 Writing Your Rules for Success with Helen Appleby

Women on Work

From an early age, women are indoctrinated with how we should act in our community. Standing in the background, doing what needs to get done without compliant, amplifying those around us and lifting them up - these informal rules of engagement put us at a disadvantage in the workplace. We often find ourselves doing “invisible work” – work that is necessary but not seen by management, which hinders our ability to move up and get noticed. In this episode, Liz and Alysia talk to Helen Appleby – a women’s leadership expert, coach and trainer – on building your visibility, influencing people, and creating the career you want on your terms.Great Resources to Check Out: www.theunwrittenrules.com

We talk about success, pressure, joy, relationship and why this time of life is so potent with opportunity and adventure. “Even if you are at the top of the corporate ladder, with fat pockets, and a fast car, you still need to listen to the whisper.” – Mark J. Silverman Today on Mastering Midlife: When did life ask the most of Mark? Why Mastering Midlife. No matter how successful you are, you still need to listen to your heart. We can do both, be successful and be fulfilled. With women its “adrenal fatigue,” with men, “we blow %$# up. What drives us to success in our 20s and 30s, is often unsustainable in our 40s and 50s.

Helen Appleby and The Unwritten Rules of Women’s Leadership

Being Human Is Good For Business Leaders

In this interview, Helen Appleby shares the top ‘unwritten rules’ and her own leadership journey. “As a little girl, my dad told me that girls could do anything that boys can do, and I believed him.But what he didn’t tell me was things can be a lot harder for girls,” explains Helen. “He didn’t tell me the world of work is different for women, and I had to discover for myself and learn how to navigate the many ‘unwritten rules’ for women at work.” In her book, Helen has included everything she knows now, that she wishes she had known earlier in her career.  Things like how tomake your invisible work visiblebuild self confidencefind mentors and sponsor that will accelerate your careerhave difficult conversations and resolve conflict manage up…so that you can advance your career and contribution. Trilogy Effect’s Managing Director Heather Marasse agrees that, for women, often a lot of their important work remains invisible.  She says, “Sometimes the work women do remains invisible because they do it so well. It doesn’t get noticed because leadership is more focused on exceptions and variances in performance. Women are reluctant to promote their own successes and instead can develop a creeping resentment that their efforts go unrecognized.” In this podcast, Helen and Heather provide real life examples and practical tips for women leaders as they share their own experiences and leadership development expertise.Links to helpful resources and information about some of the tools and concepts mentioned on the show:How to use the Enneagram to become a better leaderHow to boss like a mentorTrilogy Effect’s free newsletter full of leadership advice and practical tips.We invite you to subscribe to the Being Human Is Good for Business Podcast on iTunes, Amazon, Google Podcasts, iHeart Radio and Spotify (links below) or wherever you get your podcasts.

TOUGH TALKS: Conversations on Mental Toughness

When Helen Appleby was a kid her dad told her, "girls can do anything boys can do."

Escaping NYC and Flying the Flag For Women with Helen Appleby

The Unwritten Rules of Women's Leadership

In Episode #006 of CrisisCast 2020  | Escaping NYC and Flying the Flag For Women with Helen Appleby from The Unwritten Rules Of Women’s Leadership Today On CrisisCast 2020 -  A Brit escapes Manhattan at the peak of the pandemic, drives 13 hours and self isolates with their kids in an Air B’n’B. 

Despite all of this, Helen Appleby continues to lead and is starting to think seriously about how she will continue to fly the flag for the female workforce, as data shows… This crisis will disproportionately and negatively affect women. 
 Sitting on a box in an unfurnished house in South Carolina. I give you the wisdom from an always lovely, very wise and grateful Helen Appleby.
 
Discover… How the pandemic has affected Helen’s life in the heart of New York City
• Helen’s thoughts on how the pandemic will affect businesses and women in business
• Why what great leaders do now matters for the future Helen’s Bio: I work with CEO's and senior leaders to grow their leadership style, build high performing teams, take their career to the next level or design their legacy.

 Being senior means that it is so much harder to get the feedback you need, to grow. I get honest feedback for my clients and I tell them the truth, even if it’s tough so that they can be grounded in the reality that they need to grow.

 Being successful can also be lonely. I understand the "loneliness of leadership" because I have been there. I know firsthand how it feels to be surrounded by people and still feel alone because there is no-one objective that you can ask. I am that confidential, judgment-free sounding board for the big vision, the critical decisions, and the highs and the lows on the journey too.  Connect with Helen Helen’s Website: The Unwritten Rules of Women’s Leadership https://www.theunwrittnrules.com/ Connect with Helen on LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/helenappleby/ Feeling Pod-Curious?
