Your Opinion Matters

Speak up, sit up because of your opinion matters.

There are legions of us women. Women who have an opinion and aren’t afraid to speak up.  From the time we were little we were heard.

These are women who see solutions and opportunities and point them out to others. As girls we were were coached to be quiet, punished and sent to detention, and often told sit down and shut up.

I had the good fortune of watching Dr. Marcia Reynold’s Tedex talk about Precocious women.   Leadership and talent development leaders will learn how to retain and promote women with opinions.

Precocious children [advanced for one’s age, forwardmaturegiftedtalentedcleverintelligentquick, smart] become precocious adults. 

When a precocious woman leads. Things get done.

Nurture Your Highest Perspective of Self

Nurture your highest perspective of self. Focus all your energy on your best self. Keep mindful of your magnificence and influence.  It isn’t easy in the world of social media and public critics. It is challenging when your biggest critic is yourself.

I wish there were blinders I could give you that would prevent you from comparing you to you (your reality now with your powerful, amazing now) and you to others.

I would rather you look at you from a higher perspective filled with the adoration, appreciation and expectation.Who you already are and who you strive to be and that you are living the story you want to live.

During my Influence coaching practice, I encounter brilliant leaders sometimes struggling with the story they tell themselves over and over and getting frustrated because they really want to live another story, what they perceive is their future story.

We work on shifting their current perception of self to their highest perspective of self. There are a lot of processes and techniques to get there.

These are five recommendations all of my leaders hear from me.

Leaders Take R.I.S.K.S.

Take the risk and grow your influence as leaders. Being a leader requires you to be willing to step out of your comfort zone, share yourself, think bigger and be bigger.

Leaders Take R.I.S.K.S.

R = Relationship

Focus on relationships and building new relationships. For me, it’s this year’s aim to have a hundred breakfast, lunch, coffee or dinner meetings. To attend gatherings so I can meet new people and connect with them one-on-one or in small groups. This is big, I like staying in and being in quiet.

I =  Illuminate Your Success


There is nothing wrong with highlighting successes that you have achieved.  People want to celebrate your successes. Post on Facebook and Linkedin and share your awards. Share what you’ve accomplished or have achieved lately. It makes a difference to people because they love celebrating their friends and acquaintances who have achieved. It’s also inspiring to them, so share your successes, it matters to people.

Find people who have done it before get motivated!

You don’t have to meet them in person, but you can find people online who have done what you want to accomplish. For instance, if you want to speak to sports teams you can search and look for successful speakers who have spoken to sports teams. This becomes a motivating factor, because once you know that somebody has done it, you realize you can do it too, it helps you het motivated. This has been proven time and again. Once you know then you can follow their plan or just keep in mind that if they can do it so can you. Get motivated!

Be A Memorable Woman Leader

“WoW, You are a memorable character!”

Someone I just met at a conference emailed me and shared “WoW, You are a memorable character!”Characters.

I shared the comment on a Facebook group about women’s leadership advice. I received responses from women saying “Go Girl” “You Rock” and so on. I also received a response saying “That is rude”. I realized that many lurkers probably thought the same thing. Which lead to this post. “Are You Memorable” and more importantly “Are You a Memorable Character?”  It’s not rude to be called a memorable character… it’s awesome and powerful!  The best women’s leadership advice I ever received was from one of my sponsors and a CSMO (Chief Sales and Marketing Officer) named Al Roth who said “People remember you, promote you, sponsor you, hire you, buy from  you and refer you because… they remember you’re a positive character.”

Be a woman leader who is memorable.
