35. 3 Rules of business communication (that apply to your interview AND your job)

In this episode, I talk about 3 business communication rules that will set you up for success during your job search process AND your actual job!

I’m also excited to share with you that I have a new training available now on How to Land Your Dream Job (without wasting months during your job search process)! Check it out here!

These types of concepts are what you’ll hear more of in the 45-minute training, so if you like this episode, be sure to check it out.

Tune in to hear:

  • More about the 3 rules: (1) Never share data only; (2) Ask system-level questions; (3) Build confidence with content power
  • The exact formula I use for creating the “voiceover” you need to have when presenting a lot of data (and you want your audience to agree with your conclusion)
  • The healthy version of the relationship between preparedness and confidence

No matter what, remember that you’re totally capable of being great and feeling great, and you are so worthy of that.

32. 3 Ways to Achieve a Big Goal (like writing a book)

32. 3 Ways to Achieve a Big Goal (like writing a book)

A few weeks ago, I had the honor of being interviewed for my favorite podcast, Clarity on Fire. That episode went live on a couple weeks ago and you can listen here. It was such a great conversation!

Before I got to chat with Kristen, she sent over a few topics to prepare, and there was one that we didn’t get to talk about (because we were too busy talking about so many other great things!), but my brain/heart/soul couldn’t let it go. So, I recorded this podcast for you to answer this one question:

“What advice do you have for someone trying to achieve a big goal, like writing a book?”

My answer has three parts: one, developing a mindset of inevitability; two, have a plan but follow your flow; three, take small, consistent steps (that are actually messy, ugly, and tiny)

Listen in as I share:

  • how I surrendered to the inexplicable (and possibly illogical) desire to do something that I just wanted to
  • how I used a plan to keep me unstuck, but not as a tool for forcing anything
  • how I reconciled with my perfectionism, which is the real reason why making consistent progress on a goal is SO hard for me

21. You won't miss it as much as you think: Intro to "I don't know who needs to hear this, but..."

Introducing a new episode type: "I don't know who needs to hear this, but..." which is where I play fortune teller or act like a teen magazine horoscope and share a good, generally applicable lesson worth knowing, and trust that you will decide if and how it applies to your life. I don't know who needs to hear this, but someone does. 

This episode: you won't miss it as much as you think. If you're in a transition, and holding onto something because you're afraid of how much you'll miss it (or how much you'll be missed), here's your reminder that you won't miss it as much as you think you will. You're resilient, and you're adaptable. It's time to let it go.

On learning about rest and actually resting

On learning about rest and actually resting

Hi friends - you might’ve noticed that this episode is a little different than usual. In my therapy session last week, I talked a lot about how tired I am. Not in the sense of being sleepy, but feeling weary. 

It’s a feeling that a lot of us are experiencing right now. Maybe it’s that we’re coming up on the anniversary of the pandemic, or we’re ready for spring and warmer temperatures, or we’re feeling the effects of a lot of remote working hours. My therapist gave me the homework assignment to learn about rest in all its forms as a first step toward actually resting. This is genius, and proves that she really knows me after over 3 years of working together. Under stress, I am an information gatherer, so giving me the task of learning about rest will get me excited to actually try out what I’m learning. 

So, in short, I spent this weekend learning about rest and actually resting, which means that I don’t have a new episode for you today. If you’re still in the mood to listen, I’d encourage you to go back to any episodes you might’ve missed - #3 on Core Values and #13 on Identities are my favorites. 

Otherwise, I issue you a challenge. When you clicked play, you might’ve mentally allocated 30 minutes towards listening to an episode. Take the remaining 25 or so to do something restful: sit quietly in your car, listen to the sounds of nature while walking around the block, or do a quick meditation. Heck, maybe even take a nap! Bring attention to your state of restfulness, and honor it. I will continue my search for information on rest, and also on how to actually rest. I’ll see ya next time.

08. Behavioral Interview Matrix: the tool you need to prep for your next interview

08. Behavioral Interview Matrix: the tool you need to prep for your next interview

If you’ve been asked “Tell me about a time when…” in an interview, you know how nerve-wracking it can be to think of a story from scratch that is relevant to the position, answers the question, showcases your strengths, and is coherent enough that the interviewer follows along. The solution? Prepare ahead of time with the Behavioral Interview Matrix.

The Behavioral Interview Matrix is a tool that I created to help you plot out your stories according to your experience and the typical interviewing questions. It will help you get clear on what stories to tell, and how to best recount them AND take a ton of pressure and anxiety off the interview itself, because you’ll know you’re prepared.

Tune into this episode to hear all about how to set it up and use it for interview prep.

06. Is consulting for you? An inside look of the “expert” business model

Have you thought about being a consultant but you don’t know if it’s a good fit for you? Or maybe your company has consultants or contractors that you’re working with, but you don’t quite understand why they’re there and how that all works?

This episode has lots of answers for you: everything you wanted to know about consulting, but were too afraid to ask.

You will learn some insight into the mechanics of the consulting business model, why businesses hire consultants, and some pros & cons of working as a consultant, plus a bonus “Mindset Secret” from inside the consulting world.

You’ll even hear about why some people say that 1 year as a consultant is equivalent to 2 years in industry, and why adaptability is the most important skill for a successful consultant.

05. Don’t answer the question: The surprising trick to turn small talk into meaningful connection

05. Don’t answer the question: The surprising trick to turn small talk into meaningful connection

We all know the generic small talk questions and how they can feel unnatural. In my case, they even spurred my anxiety -- before this mindset shift -- because I was overly concerned with giving the “right answer” to the question that I was asked.

One day I realized that people didn’t actually care about what I did that weekend. Not in a “they don’t actually care” kind of way, but in a “they aren’t asking for a report on your weekend” kind of way. When people ask about your weekend, they actually do care about you and they want to connect with you.

Asking about your weekend is actually a way to start a conversation, learn something about you that is interesting, and find a way to connect with you.

The same goes for interviews: most of the time, the interviewer will never know to ask you about the most interesting thing about you. If you stick to answer exactly the question that is asked, and nothing more, you’ll miss a major opportunity to discuss what truly sets you apart.

In the show, I share more about this mindset shift and how to leverage it best.

02. 5 Tips to Write a Great Email (Especially when you're nervous!)

I can’t count how often I have sat in front of an email draft, palms sweaty, reading, re-reading, re-wording, then re-reading again on an email that is very important. When I get in this knotty-stomach mode, there are a few tricks that I’ve relied on to make sure I’m still sending solid emails. Hopefully, these tips below will save you from having to send a follow up damage control / “what I actually meant to say was…” email, and let you focus on achieving your dreams and changing the world!
