Hey there, my fierce ones! Today, I want to talk to you about a conversation that came up at a meeting I attended earlier this week with the CEO, partner, and the senior members of a large professional services firm. During this discussion, an interesting topic came up about how women sometimes need to bend – or break – some “corporate” rules, or ideas we perceive as rules, to step into our power and become the successful leaders we know we can be.
I was so inspired by this conversation and realized that many of the women that I work with every day are often feeling governed by a set of rules that may or may not exist in their organization. So I want to discuss briefly with you why it is so important for you to break a rule every now and then so that you can truly step into your incredible potential and lead your team on your terms, without sacrificing what matters most to you.
Here’s a Breakdown of Today’s Episode:
- The key to rising through the ranks in your organization is always to have a voice.
- Step into your power. Take control of your schedule. Don’t be afraid to “break a rule” from time to time to lead your team effectively, but without sacrificing your freedom or what’s important to you.
- Don’ limit yourself – your power – based on a set of rules you created for yourself.
“Sometimes, smart, ambitious women need to break some rules to create the freedom, the impact, and to have the rewards they deserve.” – Eleanor Beaton
My Challenge to You:
Stop worrying about whether you will get into trouble if you step into your power and use your voice. Don’t worry about getting into trouble for setting your own schedule around important things in your life.
Get out there, step into your power, use your voice, and be the ambitious women leader we all know you can be!
