In this episode, I chat with one of my MBA besties about how we are thinking through our careers during #ThatRona.
I’m seven episodes into 2020 and I’m struggling. This isn’t a normal episode. In this episode, I get honest about what is going on with me and what I’m learning– in my new gig, in producing this podcast, and in life in general.
In this episode, building from last week’s episode, we focus on getting ready for sponsorship. Before we start targeting potential leaders in the organization, we some work to do on ourselves first. Once we have prepped, we give ourselves a better chance to ask for sponsorship. We talk about building your narrative, understanding your organization, and how NOT to ask for sponsorship.
In this remix episode, Michelle Silverthorn, Founder and CEO of Inclusion Nation, a diversity consulting firm based in Chicago, joins me for a TRILL convo about Sponsors. Michelle keeps it all the way TRILL, dropping all the nuggets you need to gain sponsors at work.
Holiday Rewind S3:Ep 50
Regardless if you have listened to S3: Episode 39 or not, you gotta check out all the nuggets my mentee dropped in this episode. As 2019 is coming to an end, take time out to listen and take notes as you prep for an awesome 2020!
In this episode, I discuss two points of frustration at work: 1. BS that we find ourselves unnecessarily involved in, and 2. Being treated with disrespect. I give you some things to think about and language to help you focus on your priorities and professionally defend yourself without being labeled defensive or angry black woman.
In this episode, Tiffany and I discuss the hard reality that likeability/relatability at work is what gets you promoted and how being black and woman makes gaining likeability that much harder in white male-dominated corporate America.
In this episode, I catch up with one of my favorite mentees. You may remember her from S2 Episode 9. A little over a year ago, she has started a new job, relocated across a number of states only to be set up for failure. Now, she tells us what has happened since then and what she is up to now. It’s amazing what a difference a year can make.
In this episode, I have the opportunity to sit down with my little cousin (he’s 20 now but he will always be my favorite 9-year-old with a bow tie) and talk with him about his summer internship experience with a global investment firm. It is the classic okie-doke set up for failure. Let this be a lesson to you. You can interview well, gain the opportunity, get set up to fail… only to be told that you aren’t good enough. Don’t believe the hype.
