What do you imagine the world of the future will look like? 

Will we have deliberately shaped it or transformed something out of the ashes?

Listen to this week's episode of The Leadership Woman podcast where I reflect on climate - the subject of the 2021 Leadership Forum of the @BritishChamber for Luxembourg.

Take 10 minutes to get into the mood for Wednesday's conversation on Building a Sustainable Future - 6pm at the Chamber of Commerce in Kirchberg.

If you haven't listened to podcast #37 with Dr Sethina Watson, then you have missed a gem. So much so that I thought some things are worth repeating so this week I have used The Leadership Woman podcast to reflect on her journey. 

I pulled out 5 key leadership lessons that are useful for everyone so I hope you enjoy it!

Listen to the latest episode of The Leadership Woman with an inspiring woman - Dr Sethina Watson - who doesn't listen when people say she cannot!

Have you ever wanted to do something but people tell you it is not for you?  Here are a few things that Sethina heard over the years:

1 This school is not for you

2 Why not go to secretarial school?

3 Girls don't do science

4 You won't get into University

5 We don't encourage people over 30 to become a doctor (no intellectual aptitude)

6 You won't get into medical school

#36 - Brain Power - ‘All the world‘s a stage!‘

I am sure I have mentioned Your Brain at Work in previous podcasts but it bears repeating. If we understand how our brain works, we can use it to its best advantage and be more efficient, calm and healthy.

We are all human which means we have a limited capacity of 'thinking power' and so we need to use it wisely. In this podcast I describe the stage analogy from his book.

Thanks for your patience while I was in the UK reconnecting with family.

Listen to Brian Ballantyne as he talks about how his early life led him into his passion for Equality and Diversity which led to him co-founding Men for Inclusion. A candid reflection of his life and what broought him here.

#34 - Reflections on How Women Rise

#34 - Reflections on How Women Rise

August 9, 2021

Thank you to everyone who has supported The Leadership Woman podcast. It has reached almost 2000 downloads so I expect this episode to tip it over the edge :-)

Last week, people clearly overcame our regional accents as so many of you downloaded my conversation with Jane Cosgrove.

I realised when editing it, there were so many things that related to the 12 habits that were outlined in How Women Rise that it bore a closer look.  For example - a desire to please.

I would recommend that you listen to Jane's interview first but you will be able to follow this audio if you haven't.

WARNING

Given the comments last week by a certain English baron about regional accents, this conversation has two of them!! I am from north Notts and my guest @JaneCosgrove - People Director of the Civil Aviation Authority - is from Birmingham. :-)

As I edited this episode, I realised that anyone who has read #HowWomenRise by Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith, should listen to this podcast with a list of the 12 habits and tick them off as Jane mentions many of them.

This is a must listen for women of all levels but particularly those wanting to rise.

 

#32 - The 4 Agreements - 4th - Always do your best!

#32 - The 4 Agreements - 4th - Always do your best!

July 26, 2021

Do you always do your best?

I was worried when I saw this 4th agreement to always do my best as some days are better than others. Is it the same for you?

But Don Miguel Ruiz gives a different way of looking at things in his book, The Four Agreements and I hope that this podcast does it justice.

Taking action is the key to doing our best so listen and see if you can develop a new habit.

Listen to Keith talk about his career with NATO and now as a Career Coach in Luxembourg. We had fun recording it and I couldn't resist adding an outtake after the end music :-)

He wrote an article for a book which was entitled, 'Mentors, Medians and Minotaurs' which he explains at the end. I have been wondering who the minotaurs have been who sap the life out of you...

As usual, it would be great to hear your comments.
