Ep #126: How to Embody Self-Awareness as a Leader with Jay Fields

One of the most powerful things I teach on this podcast and in my Executive Ahead of Time program is how to manage your emotions.

And by managing your emotions, I don’t mean: stuff your emotions deep down inside.

But I do mean:

🙏 Manage your emotions so you don’t spin out when you get negative feedback

🙏 Manage your emotions so you don’t doubt yourself and your long-term goals

🙏 Manage your emotions so you can speak up and be heard

🙏 Manage your emotions so you can enjoy a whole new level of fulfillment and ease as you step into higher levels of leadership

And this desire to embody this new kind of leadership so you can be more authentic and loving to yourself is exactly why I needed to invite Jay Fields onto my podcast.

Jay Fields is an embodiment educator who has devoted her life to helping people manage their emotions more effectively so they can have their own backs at work and in life.

And she does so in a way that is grounded, playful, empathetic, and intelligent.

(And those are some qualities we can all get behind, right?)

In this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, Jay and I discuss how you can tap into a new level of power by embodying your self-awareness as a leader. 

We also discuss the #1 thing that got Jay to where she is in her career, why building your relational intelligence is as important as your drive to succeed, why focusing only on smarts and achievements causes so many corporate badasses to suffer, and more.

This conversation is so impactful and so brilliant. I can’t wait for you to listen.

Let’s get started.
