January

These two words can make a difference in your ascent. So what will you do about it?

  We discussed two key concepts, calibration and succession, in the #NSCRockstarLeadership tip of the day on Tuesday and #BossMoves content share on Wednesday. It’s Thursday, so it’s time to plan your action with the #NSCJournal prompt. The beauty of journaling out your strategy is that only you know your unique situation at work, the leaders, the politic and the culture. Now what will you do with this…

Release The Villains

Headed into the weekend feeling lighter like… Great group coaching session that blended mindfulness and neuroscience today with current and grad clients! 👏🏽👏🏽💥💥 We do it once monthly, every 3rd Friday at noon CT. Our focus today was forgiveness. Whew, Chile!! How many of you have listed the villains from past teams, divisions and workplaces one by one, forgiven them for what they did to you and released…

Want to make your positive affirmations even more potent?

Want to make your positive affirmations even more potent? We’ve learned that your brain needs proof to make them effective. For instance: I am smart BECAUSE…(add evidence from a past experience.) But if you are only saying them a few times and never revisiting them, those affirmations may not be working in your favor. Repetition is key. It’s the way our brain learns. After all, it is how…

Microwaveable success only works in the kitchen

I understand. Your social media timeline is seductive. It appears that some people gain overnight success. The truth is, when that happens it is the exception and not the rule—sometimes, it may be a farce. Let’s face it, most of us are the rule and hardly the exception. But even those who have exceptional track records will tell you their success took time. Mind you, most of the…

Who’s holding you back?

Sometimes the person that is holding us back most is staring back at us in the mirror. What do you believe about yourself that is holding you back?

Have you ever thought the following before you even went…

Are you in a holding pattern?

Face it. It’s how we were all taught. When you were a child, it probably made more sense to spend time working on improving the skills that you need to move into adulthood. But Sis, now, you’ve been at your career for years now. You are a leader, an eagle. There are just some skills, soft or hard, that you are better at than others. Spending time improving…

Shhh… hear that?  It’s the sound of progress

  Shhh… hear that? It’s the sound of progress. When Abby West (she/her) worked for the likes of People Magazine, Entertainment Weekly and Essence, you couldn’t have told her that one day she would be leading the charge for digital audio content for creators of color at one of the most cutting-edge content and tech companies on the planet. In fact, like most of us, back then, she…
