    28 | Beneath The Struggle To Ask For Help

    28 | Beneath The Struggle To Ask For Help

    Often, we tell ourselves that the key to expanding our leadership is merely becoming better at asking for help or refining our delegation skills. But what I've unearthed in my work as a coach to CEOs and leaders is that the challenge goes deeper than tactics and tips. It's not just about optimizing to-do lists or honing delegation strategies; there's a profound internal barrier between us and the help we seek.

    Join me on this exploration of the struggle of asking for help and the complexities surrounding delegation. I’ll dig into the fears of appearing incompetent, needy, or even abusive when asking for help (especially as women and POC) .  I’m also dissecting the misconception that unlimited capacity equates to competence and pull back the covers on how shifting our perspective can transform our leadership dynamics. 

    Press play to tune in as we peel back layers and challenge the narratives that may be holding us back from authentic and sustainable leadership.


    "What I am constantly finding is that it's not about the tactics, it's not about the tips, it's not about the tricks, it's not about optimizing your to-do list, not at least at first. That's not the first step. There's something that runs much deeper within us around what feels like a barrier between us and the help that we want to better leverage”.

    “Building this skill, building confidence and comfort, around asking for help, employing help, receiving help, it's gonna be make or break for whatever it is that you're trying to build. It creates a ceiling immediately if you can't move through this and expand and grow this part of yourself.”

    “I think women and people of color, we can carry a great deal of undue pressure on our leadership design… that maybe makes us account for too many variables. Trying to hold too many things, and maybe not always the things that matter the most.”

    “There is a level of thoughtfulness that we try to bring to our own leadership, to not repeat and not recreate a culture around reckless and uncaring delegation, and I think that there's a weight to that intent that we carry around …being better, trying to be more thoughtful… that just adds another layer of pressure to what it means to ask for help, what it means to delegate or to set expectations for someone else… what it means to be responsible when you are occupying a position of a great deal more power within a power dynamic, trying to be respectful and responsive to that.”

    “You're wanting to make sure that basically, the team knows that you can handle hard shit, that the team knows that you have horsepower, that they can believe in your work ethic, and your ability to handle things… but what's happening, because you have such a focus on this, on proving to this team, appearing to this team that you have what it takes, and essentially, that you are strong, is that you are conflating capacity with competence. Meaning, you’re trying as hard as you can to always appear competent through how infinite your capacity is, which it's not.”  

    “When we're focused on, I just need to be the strong one that's getting all the things done, we don't create space for relationships and for what really needs to be invested in here.”

    #74 Warum meditierst du? (mit Dr. Nico Rönpagel)

    #74 Warum meditierst du? (mit Dr. Nico Rönpagel)
    Nico, mein guter Freund und Mitgründer von Wevolve, meditiert mittlerweile seit 20 Jahren täglich, hat an Retreats verschiedener Traditionen teilgenommen und erst gerade drei Wochen in Stille verbracht. Und dennoch sagt er, dass er nicht einmal 1% von Meditation für sich erschlossen hat. Woher diese Demut kommt, welche neuen Erfahrungen er im Januar gemacht hat und warum er eigentlich meditiert, erzählt er in unserem Check-In. Die Folge richtet sich vor allem an alle, die sich tiefer mit Meditation, tibetischen Buddhismus und der Verbindung zu unseren Träumen beschäftigen möchten. Für alle, die sowohl Lust auf wissenschaftliche Erklärungen als auch auf philosophische Antworten auf einige der großen Fragen des Lebens haben.

    27 | Scaling Your Humanity With Your Wealth

    27 | Scaling Your Humanity With Your Wealth

    I've been reflecting on my self-discovery journey, facing challenges and pondering profound questions this season. Recent conversations, especially those delving into my middle school experiences, have revealed personal truths and beliefs related to my sense of belonging.

    Sharing these experiences isn't just about my journey but aligns with a broader theme observed among powerful women. As we navigate success, visibility, and seniority, we often compromise spaces where we can be authentic. This episode delves into the significance of investing in spaces that foster thriving, full expression, and true belonging. 

    It's time to prioritize our humanity, transition from survival to thriving, and acknowledge the immense potential in embracing our authentic selves. Join me as we explore this crucial investment in our well-being and growth.


    "In the absence of belonging, my basement was that people would respect me …if looking for and embracing and trusting that belonging wasn’t available to me, that at the very least, I didn't go seeking anything beneath basic respect.”

    “A big important part of our core and important part of this work for you, is to allow yourself to feel that you want to belong… to feel the wanting, to feel the desire, allow yourself to feel that. It's okay …you deserve to want that as opposed to just saying, well, I'm not going to assume that I belong, but I will assume respect and how do you know when one of the ways that we can think of respect is like a proxy for it, that can be sort of symbolic.”

    “Especially in this day and age, we have got to cling to the things that bring us back into our humanity. We have got to. And when you're operating as the powerful woman, the woman who knows when you're operating at this level, and you have big dreams, big aspirations, and you've got the track record, you can look back and you can say look, check my receipts. I do the things, I operate in a big way, and I have every intent of doing what feels expansive. We're discounting this key aspect of what it looks like to grow and belong and make things happen as a fertile, loving collective.“

    “As you become more and more successful, the more wealth you have, the more seniority you occupy, the more visibility that you have, there are fewer and fewer spaces where you can be your own human self, your real true blue, honest, quirky, full self because cameras are on, people are watching, your team is looking to you, everybody needs something from you. And so people don't always see you as human. Even those who are cheering for you.”

    “Our humanity carries with it a tapestry of really critical energies– our true personalities, our preferences, our quirks, who we actually are. It’s an energy that is meant to be expressed. It is meant to flow. And when it is caged in and bottled up, because you are on a pedestal, you are on a platform, everybody is looking to you and you have to button the shit up, and you need to look a certain way, you need to say a certain thing, you need to…”

    “Not everybody has the capacity to negotiate their own identities in the distance between your reality and theirs with personal security. People sometimes can't maintain their own self- esteem in your presence.”

    “The privilege of just being able to be who you are out loud in front of people, bear and real and raw you, that has immeasurable value.”

    Want to become a better manager? Then manage yourself better! From managing the time you spend managing, and all the way to managing how you give your team new tasks... Let's get real with Johanna Rothman, whom they don’t call the Pragmatic Manager for nothing. You will love her straight-talking approach to management. After almost 40 years in management, she can boil down things to sharp principles that will make you either hand pump💯, shoot the link to your buddy🤣… or smile sheepishly🫣. Yip, she got you. (Don’t worry, we won’t judge. Patterns exist because everyone does them. Which is why we need people who have been around the block to call us out 📢on them). Listen to find out: - Why you need to manage yourself to better manage others - Micromanagement: A recipe for multitasking chaos🤯 and WIP overload. - Why Gantt Charts are bad👎. Use Flow Metrics and PERT instead. - Who actually needs to be in the C-Suite (HINT: Not 25 people 🤣) - + how things have changed since the 70s: from the CTO Role to Feedback loops.

    #72 Träumen und Bewusstsein (mit Dr. Nico Rönpagel)
    Es ist Ende Oktober, die Blätter fallen von den Bäumen und die Nächte werden wieder länger. Und es wird mal wieder Zeit für einen Check-In mit meinem Mitgründer und gutem Freund Dr. Nico Rönpagel.

Wir sprechen darüber, was wir träumen, warum wir träumen, was luzides Träumen ist und wie man das trainieren kann. Und das führt uns zu der Frage, was „Bewusstsein“ eigentlich ist und ob wir sicher sein können, dass das, was wir hier gerade erleben kein Traum ist.

    AUF EIN FLUCHTACHTERL!..mit Ingrid Gogl

    AUF EIN FLUCHTACHTERL!..mit Ingrid Gogl
    Zu meinem bereits zehnten FLUCHTACHTERL habe ich „meine“ Präsidentin getroffen. Ingrid Gogl ist nicht nur PR- und Kommunikationsprofi, eine engagierte und herzliche Kollegin und seit August bei TGW Logistics als Director Marketing & Communications im Einsatz. Sondern auch seit Ende Juli Präsidentin des PRVA Public Relations Verbandes Austria. Und da hat sie einiges vor, ist sie nicht zuletzt auch einer jener Köpfe, die den Transformationsprozess im PRVA angestoßen haben und ihn vom „PR zum Kommunikationsverband“ weiterentwickeln wollen. Was das genau bedeutet und warum ihr das wichtig ist, erzählt sie ebenso, warum und wie sie überhaupt in der Kommunikation gelandet ist. Ingrid liebt übrigens Weihnachten…und Weihnachtskampagnen noch mehr…ihre vier (!) Katzen sowieso. Sympatisch, irgendwie…dass sie sich aber nicht mehr an unser „gemeinsames Fünfjähriges“ erinnern kann, hat mich dann doch auch kurz aus der Fassung gebracht...

    19 | Liberated Business Building with Sabia Wade (aka The Black Doula)

    In this episode, we dive deep into the experiences and wisdom of Sabia Wade, a remarkable Black Queer CEO, Investor, Educator, and Author who's been making waves in the world of birthing and beyond. We reminisce about her childhood and her early concept of "Black luxury." From there, we journey through Sabia's path, from a small business owner to an audacious visionary, embracing her creativity and her resolute belief in the power of asking, "Why not me?"

    Sabia's journey is an inspiration for many, and her commitment to self-care and representation is a powerful message for anyone on their path to personal and professional growth. Listen in as Sabia takes us through her journey, offering insights and inspiration along the way. Some key points discussed in this episode include:

    • The importance of having a community that validates and values your work, especially as a black creator
    • Unveiling shared stories of the trauma and experiences of black-birthing individuals
    • Recognizing your needs and not feeling guilty about self-care
    • Building and maintaining a supportive team for your personal and professional life
    • The true meaning of rest

    “...you're having this issue in your business because in your personal life, you need to work on that so you can incorporate that into your business”. - Sabia

    “We can all be of high maintenance, we can all do that at the same time and show up for each other in the ways where it's just like, this is the strength that I have to give it, we're all focused on that..” - Monique

    “If you don't invent the thing, then you never know what's gonna go right.  Everything that we have on this planet has been created by someone, some brain somewhere, right? And it's like, they didn't know if that thing was gonna pop off …But I just feel like why can't it be me?” - Sabia

    “For most people, folks of color, in particular, and for many entrepreneurs… if you're thinking differently, you're dreaming differently, you want to create something different, you may not come from some, very specific special, “pedigree,” and is not necessary” - Monique

    “Every day I can still choose my liberation, even more being in the matrix, right? Because we're in it. We all got capitalism. We all got sexism, bigeye, racism, right? We got all these phobias, all of these things. And, I still choose to do something every day. That is for my liberation”. - Sabia

    “Everything you do doesn't have to make sense” - Sabia

    “When you take care of yourself? Yeah, it's always a benefit to the team, right? Whether it's emotionally, financially, whatever the next thing we're gonna do on our part, like, it's always a benefit for me to care for myself”. - Sabia

    “It takes surrounding yourself with the right people to rest, right. Like we have to build that up around you. We all need that”. - Monique

    Why They're Not Doing What You Ask

    Why They're Not Doing What You Ask

    Has this happened to you as a humanitarian and/or international development leader?

    You have a meeting with your team, or community, or implementing partner, and you think you've agreed on what to do next.

    You come back a week later, and find out... nothing has been done!

    Why is that?

    The more responsibility we take for our team, the community, government, implementing partner (or even your kids!) not taking action on something, the more likely we can fix it.  

    Because chances are, there's something we have done that ended up with them not taking action.

    If you want to learn the most common reasons things don't get done (after your team has agreed to do them) and how to overcome them, listen to this episode!

Wie funktioniert es, gemeinsam am Ende des Jahres den Gewinn zu verteilen? Wie kann man 100% Gesellschafter und Geschäftsführer und doch kein Chef sein?

Einmal 360Grad rundum geschaut. Persönliche unternehmerische Freiheit hat viele Facetten, in dieser Folge lernen wir wieder mehr Möglichkeiten leichter, menschlicher und nachhaltiger UnternehmerMensch zu sein.
