You all know her. She's the perfect mom. The perfect wife. She looks gracious on the treadmill and never ever sweats. She shows up to meetings perfectly prepared and everything she says is witty, smart -- and it's just nauseating.
Marcella is off this week, so I invited Kathleen Booth -- IMPACT's VP of Marketing and the host of our Inbound Success Podcast (check it out!) -- to join me once again.
Having kids isn't usually something we really start doing until after we're married. It seems like today most of us put our careers and education first. We plan our future around our career paths, retirement, when we will buy our first house, a new car -- but, we don't talk about planning for a family. That's what we want to change with today's episode of MarketHer.
My time with IMPACT has been spent building a team of pretty remarkable people. I first joined the company in August of 2016 as the Strategist on a POD - aka what we call teams here.
We’ve talked about change before in the big, global, life-quaking kind of way. Switching careers. Going to a new company. Starting a family. Moving. But today, we’re going to address a different kind of change that's specific to the workplace. Where you’re not moving, changing your life, or pivoting your career by choice. Instead, you’re going about your business one day at work, and suddenly change starts happening to you and around you -- without warning.
Giving and receiving feedback -- when it comes to growing personally and professionally (and helping others do the same), there are few skills more vital to success. It’s also one of the most difficult things to do.
Have you ever read a book, listened to an interview, or a watched a video that spoke so directly to your life that it was almost scary? It happened to me this weekend and I can't wait to share more about with you!
This is going to be an emotionally honest episode, because I went into it feeling both motivated and excited, but also somewhat defeated. On the one hand, it's the start of a new quarter. And during our team meeting yesterday, we talked about new objectives, new processes, and all of those great “turning over a new leaf” feelings. The kind of stuff that makes you feel refreshed and ready to take on the world. On the other hand, the end of last quarter, which concluded last Friday, ended in… well, failure. Quite a bit of it. And I was still emotionally licking my wounds.
