Lessons from Leaders: Featured Guest Katherine Grainger, Partner at Civitas Public Affairs Group

Lessons from Leaders

I am back this week with Part 2 of my episode with Katherine Grainger, Partner at Civitas Public Affairs Group. The feedback from episode one has been nothing short of humbling. I am grateful that you have enjoyed and appreciated her candor and authenticity the way I have. This week we dive right back in leading with a lesson in discomfort. "My normal response to discomfort is to fix it, put it away, pass through it. But innovation comes from discomfort.... I want to unlearn what I am an 'expert in.'" As a teach, Katherine mentions honoring the ability to be consistently challenged in what she already knows by the curious minds of her students. This causes her to always be researching, listening, and learning. Show Times: 0:00 - 1:00 | Introduction 1:00 - 8:00 | Vulnerability Application 8:00 - 9:00 | Political Context x Vulnerability 9:00 - 13:00 | Changing the Leadership Rules 13:00 - 17:00 | Standing in Discomfort 17:00 - End part 2 | Constant Conversations on Calling in vs Calling out This is Part 2 of a 2 Part Series with Katherine, I would love to know more about your favorite takeaway pieces from these episodes. Thank you so much Katherine for your time and heart on these leadership topics.

Lessons from Leaders

Just before the holiday season took over, I sat down with Katherine Grainger, a partner at Civitas Public Affairs Group, and what a deeply moving conversation we had. This is for all leaders, but specifically for our women and our mothers who have been personally affected by the pandemic, job change, and work from home orders. Katherine begins the conversation with describing the value of empathy. "One thing Covid (the pandemic) has done, is fast tracking the importance of empathy in the workplace." This organic episode lead from empathy, to appreciation to a very special mentor in her life, and closes with vulnerability. Show Times: 0:00 - 3:00 | Introduction 3:00 - 6:00 | What Covid has given leaders6:00 - 8:00 | How we keep our lessons + Women specific issues 8:00 - 15:00 | Katherine's Story of Inspiration 15:00 - 18:00 | Leadership awareness 18:00 - End | Vulnerability, end of part 1 This is just part 1 of a 2 part series.
