It's no secret that Brie, Britt, and I are in newer leadership roles. In fact, we are slowly closing in on one year of being in these positions. Trust us when we say it hasn't come without its challenges. It's beneficial to talk about challenges with friends or family. It's theraputic, and you often leave those conversations with a new perspective. But, what if you don't have people in your professional life to bounce ideas of off and talk about the struggles you're facing? Do you sometimes feel alone?
It's been one of those weeks. First, my family and I ended up sick and then poor Angela's family got it. This week's episode, Brie and I discuss how to have a seat at the table -- and no, we don't mean for dinner.
Go back to moment when someone last paid you a compliment. How did you feel? Did your armpits start sweating? Did you look down to the floor? Did you say, "oh, it's nothing." Why is it so hard to just say thank you? We all have different reasons why accepting compliments is uncomfortable. Even Brie and Britt have different reasons than I do and I'm sure you do as well. In this week's episode, we talk about why accepting compliments is always such a struggle.
Week after week, Marcella, Jessie-Lee, and I talk about topics that help us work smarter and create better. This, however, is not one of those weeks.
We've all been there before. At some point in time in our careers, we've dealt with negativity. Whether it be the gossip mill, co-workers complaining, or having a boss who is downright unbearable, we've experienced it. But, have you ever felt just because you weren't in management, you had no power to make a change in the environment you work in? To affect a more positive atmosphere and culture? In this week's episode, we discuss these very things and how you might be able to affect change.
Back in early December, Jessie-Lee cruelly abandoned Marcella and myself, and we were left to our own devices to record our 51st episode -- Are Undermining Words a Crime?
We've tackled a few personal and difficult topics here on MarketHer. From when I lost my home during two hurricanes to Angela sharing lessons learned during difficult times in her life - we don't shy away from the sensitive. This week's episode is no exception.
You ever feel like you're Superwoman(man) because you worked 70 hours in a week? How 'bout working weekends? Do you get hi-fives in the office because you're still there at 9pm? What is working long hours really doing for you? Does it really make you that much more productive?
