Inner Work

Why Strategy & a Plan Isn’t Enough to Land Your Dream Job

Truth: Strategy Alone Isn’t Enough to Land Your Dream Job (or whatever big goal you’re going after)

Doing the inner work AND taking action is twice as (if not more!) powerful than action alone.

I encourage you to start small, by setting an intention for your day and before any big meetings, presentations or events.

Tell me in the comments below in one word: What’s your intention for today?

Money + Happiness

Does More Money = More Happiness at Work?

Money + Happiness at Work: How much do you really need to make to be happy at work? And what else do you need to be fulfilled in your career?

We all know that money alone isn’t enough to guarantee career success and fulfillment, and yet for many of us – our actions would say otherwise.

We stay in jobs we hate or even change careers, solely because of a high paycheck.

🌟It is my belief that we can love our work AND get paid well for it.🌟

Do you agree?

Curiosity Breadcrumbs

How to Follow Your Curiosity Breadcrumbs to Find Career Clarity

When was the last time something piqued your curiosity and you just had to learn more? Maybe that looked like going down a reading rabbit hole, or signing up for a workshop, or talking about it endlessly with friends.

While it might seem just like fun, our curiosity and passion can serve as a path to fulfillment in our career, providing clues as to the subject, causes, and styles of work that we need to be our most lit up self.

Curious about how curiosity can bring clarity to your career? 😏 Watch the video above where we dig into this topic more.

Emotions at Work, Part 2

In-The-Moment Process to Avoid Breaking Down at Work

Last week we talked about the foundations of emotional resiliency, and this week we followed up with in-the-moment tools to handle your emotions with grace and leadership in the workplace.

Stop – Set – Support Method:

Stop: Resist reacting while you’re emotional. Breathe. Get out of the current location if possible (take a walk around the floor or outside).

Set: Ask for what you need and set boundaries. When we have a strong reaction, it’s our body/mind telling us something isn’t right. Ask yourself what that is, and what you need to be successful. Then set the boundary. 

Support: Make sure you have a support system – someone you can call or send a message to in the moment. Maybe it’s a mentor, good friend or coach. But talking things out and having someone remind you of what’s important can be huge in re-gaining perspective, even in the most stressful situations.

What’s your favorite tool to handle emotions at work? Please share in the comments below!

Handling Emotions Part 1

3 Ways to Handle Emotions at Work

Ever snap (or cry) at work? I understand, we’ve all been there. And while I don’t want you to hide your emotions, there is a way to handle them with maturity and leadership.

This post is all about building a strong foundation for emotional resiliency and in the next one, I’ll be sharing all my favorite in-the-moment tips (no more angry outbursts and crying at the office!).

1) Take care of yourself outside of work. Because none of us are our best selves when we’re tired, hungry and lacking connection.

2) Find healthy outlets outside of work to get out your emotions. 
Some ideas:
– workouts like boxing and bootcamp
– calm movement like yoga
– journal
– meditate
– time in nature
– creative time
– time with friends

3) Do the inner work/healing with a coach or therapist.
Pay attention to those persistent thoughts that appear when you’re most emotional. Start with awareness and then consider working with a professional to help heal these triggers.


Success Without Selling Your Soul – Is it possible?

“I have no choice.”

“It is what it is.”

“If I don’t take on the extra project/work until 10pm/come back early from vacation, they’ll find someone else who will.”

“It’s just for this month – after that, I’ll start leaving work at a normal time.” (that time never comes)

What’s your reason for continuing to accept less than ideal circumstances at work? When you’re in the middle of it, it can feel like you have no choice but to work late, take on the extra project, or whatever it is… (I know because I’ve been there myself, and help clients through it all the time.)

But you DO have a choice. And no job, no amount of people-pleasing, and no number of gold stars is worth sacrificing your relationships, health and overall well-being.

➡️ Whether you’re in a corporate job, an entrepreneur, or just want to have the best relationship possible, being able to know and stand for your needs is vital to your success and happiness. ⬅️

Take Time Off from Work (Glastonbury Revelation)

How “Not” Working Is The Most Important Work You Can Do

Have you bought into the idea that it’s not a good idea (dangerous even) to completely disconnect from work?

What I’ve come to realize in my personal and professional work with clients is that for those of us who are high achieving “do-ers” (I’m willing to bet that’s you if you’re watching this!): NOT WORKING IS THE WORK.

Taking time away from our day-today is our chance to: 
✔️Step away from the urgent but unimportant tasks, 
✔️Re-ignite our passion for our work,
✔️Relax and recharge and 
✔️Be inspired and tap back into the creative juice that is the most meaningful differentiator in any career

Give what you want to get

Do This One Thing to Get More of What You Want

** Note! In this episode we were also celebrating the launch of Job Joy! Skip to 4:52 to get right to the juicy stuff!

One underused method to get more of what you want is to give that exact thing to others.

Want to be recognized? Recognize others.

Want to be included? Include others.

Want to be heard? Listen to others.

Want support? Support others.

Said another way, think of what you want most right now. Whether it’s more connection, support, appreciation – or just a hug! – how can you give that exact thing to others (and yourself)?
