You have a choice of perception of how to communicate as a leader. Your words create your reality. It is all about willingness
"You can care for people without carrying them”. One of the leaders, who has been my client for the past year, shared this profound awakening which resonated with all who attended the "Being Present with Love" Virtual Retreat. I have witnessed her transformation from "professional overachiever" to a relaxed, healthy and fulfilled human being.
In October, you will pick up where we left off and fine tune showing up in your power. In fact, You are your Power! You have a choice of perception of how to communicate as a leader. Your words create your reality. It is all about the willingness to communicate. These three empowering themes over four hours integrating the practice of self-compassion, self-forgiveness, self-awareness and self-trust take it to the next level by restructuring your thoughts and habits. Half day virtual retreat for men and women whether you are a:
During our time together we will pull back the layers of individual value and psychological safety, team synergies, and overall company performance. It all starts with each individual and how each one promotes or suppresses team dynamics and the role company policies play in maintaining the status quo.
The power is directly related to how replenished each individual shows up. Your level of personal passion to succeed vs surviving another day affects how present you are in each moment of your day professionally and personally. It is time to collectively connect the dots of the human experience to company performance.

I will be presenting Sexual Assumptions and Black Women in the Workplace during the #AmplifyDEI summit, which will take place from the 27th till the 29th of September 2021.
When sexual harassment happens in the workplace, it is not taken seriously and even moreso with Black women. The assumption that “she asked for it” or “she wanted it” is a carry over from the “Angry Black Woman” assumption. The level of disrespect for Black female colleagues is the unspoken Elephant in the room.
In my talk I will bring light to what it is and how you can bring more equity and belonging when it comes to hearing the concerns of your Black female staff and leadership.
Do you know your boundaries when it comes to physical capacity? How much sleep are you willing to miss to keep the peace? Perhaps you have been able to do it for months and then you buckle under the pressure and start complaining. Your complaining falls on deaf ears and it becomes resentment. What you don't realize is that your pattern of behavior, doing whatever it takes to "get it done" has created a default state of "she can handle" in others. Your resentment is unfounded and unjustifiable because you have trained them to accept you in that way. They are now conditioned to rely on your behavior patterns as a "strength" or habit. Whereas all along you were hoping to model behavior your desired of others.
The problem is if you never say" I am going to do this so that you will know how to do this or know to do this" no one sees you...breathe that in.
Deeply reflect on areas in your life where you are consistently resentful. Honestly, review when and how it all started. What was your part in that? You may find that you were on autopilot or doing busy work in the beginning or mindlessly escaping something you did not want to speak up about and creating another communication barrier. Your choices are so powerful. Your words are even moreso, whether they are spoken or not. Sometimes the unspoken words are the ones that hurt you the most. What would it take for you to change that?
I call it being in your Beingness. It doesn't require going into the forest or hiking. You can make that choice right now at this moment. Your power is in your presence with NOW. The time is only ever NOW.

I just attended a wonderful talk of Cordelia's on Allyship and DEI at the L&D Cares Career Growth Summit. When I saw her talk listed, it was the one I was most excited to attend, and Cordelia did not disappoint! Her presence is calm, powerful, and beautiful. It was deep, thought-provoking, and loving. There was no judgement and she created a space that many felt safe to share in. I left with ideas on how I can be a better ally, encourage allyship, and some tactical strategies for grounding. What struck me most, especially with this emotional topic and in these complex times was how effectively she was able to build hope and lead the conversation from a positive place. Amazing session. Amazing speaker. I can't say enough good things about Cordelia.

The 5-Day Replenish Me Boot Camp gives you a chance to reset, take a break from the hustle and bustle and focus on you. It is truly a Self-Care moment, so if you aren't doing that right now, I highly encourage you to join.
