Ep #111: Things I Suck At Part 1: Setting Boundaries

You know that saying: ‘do as I say, not as I do?

I 100% ‘walk the talk’ with my corporate badasses. Sometimes.

The vast majority of the time I am coaching corporate women on things I would do (and usually have done).

But some of the time?

Some of the time I am giving advice on things that I know from experience will get them massive results…but I absolutely suck at doing it myself. 

So here’s what I’m going to do:

I’m going to call myself on my own BS and dedicate an entire 3-part podcast series to detailing everything I am truly terrible at when it comes to professional development.

It’s simply called the Things I Suck At series, and it’s going to be super honest, vulnerable AND fun.

Being committed to growth means being honest about the things you are struggling with.

And you know what? You might really suck at some of these things too.

So let’s learn together.

In part one of the Things I Suck At series, I am tackling the thing I suck at the most:

Setting boundaries.

In this episode, I’ll walk you through how I’m learning to set better, more powerful boundaries and the success I am seeing as a result.

If you want to receive the recognition you deserve, step into a higher leadership position, get paid for your ideas instead of the hours you put in at work, and enjoy more time, freedom, energy, and joy, then you need to get your hands on a copy of Promotions Made Easy. Get your copy here.

What You'll Learn:

  • Why I’m so terrible at setting boundaries (and how I learned to love them)
  • Why being bad at boundary setting erodes trust with the executive leadership team
  • Why you can’t have a voice at the table if you can’t ask for help
  • Why setting boundaries actually benefits the other person
  • Why friends don’t let friends set boundaries alone
