Season 2 Episode 9 | Loving the Totality of Who You Are: A Call to Arms

What would it look like if you could be completely yourself in every area of your life? As women, we often feel that we need to lead segregated lives.   It can feel like we are never really anywhere where we can be completely at ease and ourselves.  We’ve all internalized that sense of fear that if we are who we really are, we will be perceived as either “not enough” or “too much”. This is part of the experience of living in patriarchy. And the problem is that the line is always shifting as to what’s acceptable, so that we can never meet the goals that are set out for us. In this week’s podcast episode, Elizabeth talks about having the capacity to be completely yourself in every area of your life and every aspect of what you do, as fearlessly as possible. The value of being comfortable with the totality of who you are is far greater than the value of other people’s approval. If you’re feeling like you’ve been taught that you are here to make others “feel good,” that you’re meant to be “nurturing”, that you need to prioritize other people's happiness over your own, that if you’re not pleasing others, you’re not good enough, then this episode is for you.

Season 2 Episode 10 | Recalibration

What would it feel like to take a conscious pause to reconsider the choices you’ve made about where you invest your time & effort? If you’re like many of the women leaders that we’re working with, right now it’s feeling almost impossible to handle everything that our lives throw at us. We’re expected to show up ready to perform at our best at work. More than 40% of us are primary breadwinners. We’re still relied upon to manage most of the childcare and take on most of the unpaid labor to maintain our households. In this week’s episode, Elizabeth urges us to pause, pull back from the day to day, and look consciously at the ways we spend our time and energy. The change of seasons is a perfect time to pull back and think through in really concrete terms, “How can I recalibrate my life to represent what I want it to look like?” Consider this week’s episode an invitation to you to contemplate whether or not the things you are doing from day to day truly are in service of the larger mission of your life. Taking the time to recalibrate can actually be critical to our future growth as women leaders. How you spend your time is a choice. It’s your choice.

Season 2 Episode 11 | The Wounds of Battle and the Arena of Change

Are you willing to not be liked in order to get the good work done? The more you fight for what you believe in, the more you stand in your own integrity and work to fulfill your true purpose, the more people who will show up who just don’t like you. When we’re fighting for what’s right, pushback can cause us anger and hurt.  It can be incredibly distracting from the purpose of our work. The question all of us need to consider right now is whether we are going to stay in the arena and fight for what’s right.  Are we willing to risk the blood, sweat, and tears to bring about the more just and equitable world we know is possible? What we don’t have time for anymore in this great new age of women’s leadership is the fear of being despised.  In this week’s episode, Elizabeth urges us consider that the pushback and hurt is not about us.  That if we are out there seeking to change the world in ways that benefit the whole, if we are in the game to make a difference, some people will not like it. That’s simply not something that we can allow to keep us from stepping in.   Consider this week’s episode an invitation to you to step into the arena and fight for the greater good.

Season 2 Episode 12 | Choices, Cause and Effect

Every day, the Universe hands us opportunities for growth. Often, those come in the form of the consequences of our choices. When we do the thing, and it has a negative consequence, we have to step up and take responsibility for it. If we don’t, we abdicate our power to grow, and to be the change agentin our own life. The Universe will eventually come back around with another opportunity to take responsibility, and the next one may be like a brick to the head.   In this week’s episode, Elizabeth invites you to think about two related sets of questions. Where in your life have you abdicated responsibility, and consequently lost an opportunity for growth and change? How can you reclaim it? And, have you ignored a prompting to look at one of your blind spots? Can you step in and do it now? The moment you accept responsibility creates a profound mindset shift. It’s liberating and life-changing. Give it a try. This is a topic we know we aren’t finished with yet.
