Rank #7: Season 2 Episode 9 | Loving the Totality of Who You Are: A Call to Arms

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #11: Season 2 Episode 12 | Choices, Cause and Effect

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #13: Season 2 Episode 10 | Recalibration

Podcast cover

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.

And we’re back with Season 2, Episode 1 of the Women’s Leadership Podcast with Gaia Project for Women’s Leadership Founder and CEO, Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin.

Join us weekly for all things related to women’s leadership, equity, advancement, inclusion and success in alignment with your values.

How has women’s leadership changed over the past year in the time of #Metoo?

What we’re seeing today is that many corporations and organizations are having to confront issues of sexual harassment and gender based discrimination that in the past were never fully addressed as far as the impact on individual women or the long term damage to the organization.

In this episode, Elizabeth talks about the benefits that women and those of other diverse identities bring to leadership and how we need to have an ongoing conversation about this.

As we know, it can still be hard to get men to the table to talk about how real cultural change needs to happen in order to retain quality female talent for the betterment of the organization as a whole and everyone who works there.

How can you lead this kind of change?

Elizabeth offers three potential strategies to help you move your organization forward.

Rank #17: Season 2 Episode 11 | The Wounds of Battle and the Arena of Change

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #18: Season 2 Episode 7 | The Love You Take

Podcast cover

Welcome to Season 2, Episode 7 of the Women’s Leadership Podcast with Gaia Project for Women’s Leadership Founder and CEO, Elizabeth Cronise McLaughlin.

Join us weekly for all things related to women’s leadership, equity, advancement, inclusion and success in alignment with your values.

Are you investing in relationships that nourish and support you?

For this week’s podcast episode, Elizabeth joins us from Seattle where she and her kids are waiting for the moving truck to show up in California from New York City! She talks about how the quote “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” from The Beatles was on her mind as she packed up to leave the city she has lived in for the last 17 years.

From a leadership perspective, this is about what we create for ourselves in our lives in the form of support, and the reason we can make powerful transitions in ways that feel smooth.

The key concept here is that what you put into your relationships in the form of love and support is what you receive back in exchange - and this applies not just in personal relationships but in professional relationships as well.

At least, this is how it should be. Unfortunately, women are often conditioned by patriarchy to give relentlessly, regardless of what we get back. We may even feel guilty or ashamed about the idea that our relationships should serve us as well as us serving them.

None of us are served as women leaders by relationships where all we do is give.

Even as mentors and sponsors, we should be able to count on the people we mentor to support us as well as vice versa.

So, how can you invest in relationships that serve you?

Elizabeth shares several strategies for realigning your relationships so you are giving to people that fully support your personal and professional growth.

Listen to the podcast episode to find out more.

If you like what you hear, please support us on Patreon where you can get access to bonus content.

And don’t forget to check out the Women’s Leadership Summer Masterclass Series.

This week we’ll be doing a deeper dive into two particular types of professional relationships that are critical to your success - mentorship and sponsorship. Pulled directly from the work that we do inside corporations and organizations with leaders at all levels, we’ll be exploring strategies for developing strategic relationships that are also deeply authentic and aligned with your values, so that you can visualize and embrace a vision for leadership that you can get behind. We’ll be looking at it from both sides, discussing how you can offer as well as seek mentorship and sponsorship opportunities that are mutually beneficial.

Join us tomorrow (Tuesday, July 17th at 12pm EDT) for Session 3: Cultivating Support - Mentorship and Sponsorship, or sign up for an all-access pass to all six sessions!
