You get 10 points if you recognize the quote in the title of this episode from The Notebook. Yes, Britt is a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks. You'll just have to forgive her cheeky humor. DiSC, Meyer-Briggs, Enneagram, and now DOPE. Here at MarketHer, we love personality tests as they help us not only know ourselves better but more importantly, help us understand the people we work with every day.
Guys! I love co-hosting MarketHer for a myriad of reasons, some of which Brie shared during in this article, but my favorite episodes are the ones when I barely speak because I'm learning so much from our guest or Ang and Brie. This is one of those episodes!
We've tackled similar topics before -- the ones where we complain that there aren't enough female bosses, CEOs, leaders having a seat at the table, etc. Well, we are at it again! This week's episode, we are talking about speakers, and particularly, women speakers.
Did you ever have had one of those moments as a little girl (or boy) when you just knew you were meant to be someone or do something great? Then, as you got older, it became even more apparent?
Do you ever have those days at work that you just need to be pinched because something so wonderful and unbelievable happened? Well, Angela, Brie, and I needed a good pinch last week, because we were honored (and a little fan-girling) to welcome Kim Scott, the author of Radical Candor on this week's episode of MarketHer!
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.
