Where to start when you don't know what you want to do
Do you feel stuck or unsure about your current job or career path? When you hear the word “mid-career pivot” what feelings come up for you? Excitement? Or dread, fear and anxiety?  Almost all of us will experience feeling lost, unsure, or unmotivated at some point in our careers. And with people on average now engaging in between five and seven career paths in our lifetime, we are seeing more and more examples of people embracing the mid-career pivot. How do we get ourselves unstuck though and take a new path that lights us up again?  In this episode, I’m going to share with you the four KEY things to consider in choosing your career path: (1) Get curious (2) Loosen the grip (3) Don’t fall into paralysis (4) Connect with people. In addition to this, I’ll give you some practical tips on how to work out first and foremost if the issue is your current job, or your career.  Join me in this episode as we talk about the right questions to ask for a mid-career pivot, and what to do when you feel like you don’t love what you do anymore.  GRAB YOUR SPOT in the 'Transform your Career' Accelerator starting 10th August!! - HERE  Book a Call with ME - https://eatingyourcaketoo.com.au/book-a-call/ Curious about how you or your Organisation can work with me?

The Power of Connection with Sarah Cordner
Are you a follower or a leader? Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum, I believe we can all agree that it is critical to learn to lead ourselves first. “leadership of others starts with leadership of self”.  Sarah Cordner, our guest on today's podcast, lives by this phrase. She is a certified coach with a passion for empowering professionals, particularly women, to become the leaders they want to be led by. She believes that there is a truly strong bond between knowing others and knowing ourselves. And that real connection with other people helps us improve in every aspect of our lives. So, if you are looking to increase your connection and communication, show up with more authenticity, and eventually develop and exercise your leadership muscle…… Then you want to buckle in for today’s episode!

Are You Staying Relevant?
How can you make sure you stay relevant in your job? Relevant in your industry? Your company? These questions came up recently during a coaching session I was having with a private one-on-one client of mine. They felt that they had become so focussed on their day-to-day tasks that they couldn't recall the last time they took a step back and looked at their profession and industry from a more holistic perspective. They felt disheartened, and like they had lost or wasted time by not thinking about things.  That’s why in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about RELEVANCE. The world is evolving at breakneck speed, and there are no signs of it slowing down. We can consider this as something that CAN BOG us down or scare us. OR, we can see it as a CHANCE to drive our own success, embrace and further develop the value we add and improve our relevance in our industry or organisation. Personally, I believe that when we operate from a growth mindset, we are presented with more opportunities. Why? Because we can see them more from this space.  So, I really invite everyone listening in to this episode to consider — when was the last time you paused, took a step back, looked up, looked around, and scanned the horizon of your industry or your career path?

A Career and a Family aren't mutually exclusive with Jodi Geddes
How do you juggle the responsibility of raising kids while making a living in a world that demands almost everything of us? Many people will tell you that having a career while raising a child is impossible. They'll tell you that you have to choose between the two; that you can't have it both ways. And no matter how hard you try, there will be times when work bleeds into your personal life and vice versa. However, that doesn’t mean that having a career and being a parent are mutually exclusive – you can be both and you can have both.     But, what does it take to strike a good balance between work and family life? To answer these questions and more, I have Jodi Geddes with me. And we will share with you how to have the right support in overcoming the struggle between work and family life.

How self-aware are you, really?
For those who have worked with me in the past (or maybe you do currently), you’ll know that I often talk about the importance of knowing who you are. The importance of being self-aware. Why? Because if we don’t know ourselves at our core; how we react under pressure, what our triggers are, our drivers, motivators, etc, then all the other stuff that we try to implement won’t have the impact we want it to. We won’t get the results we really want.  In this episode, we’re going to dive deep into self-awareness. I’ll share with you the 4 key self-awareness archetypes that you might see yourself in.

How to Make Decisions with Bethan Winn
Every one of us struggles with decisions at one point or another in our lives. There’s a body of research stating that we make about 30,000 decisions a day. Just in one day! But, it’s often the big things, the major decisions that can create the overwhelm and the paralysis that come when we feel stuck in what is the ‘right’ decision to make.      When we don’t stop to think about our decisions, or we make them by default, we can find ourselves looking up and around 2, 3, 5, 10 years later and asking ourselves, “How did I get here? What led to this?”      And that’s the topic of today’s episode. Together with Bethan Winn, we’ll talk about critical thinking and making better decisions in our lives.      We’ll have a Q&A style conversation where we talk about critical thinking and problem solving. We’ll go over tips and tricks and hacks on how you can incorporate critical thinking and problem solving skills into your decision making strategy. Bethan is going to help us understand critical thinking and share a few skills she’s learned in her business.

How You Can Communicate Like Oprah and Get What You Want!
Are you interested in communicating with MORE confidence? In this episode, I talk with you about how YOU can communicate with confidence like Oprah too! I begin by sharing a little about what that actually means, and what behaviours we can observe in confident communicators. From there, I then outline the traps I so often see people fall into that prevent them from coming across as confident in their ideas. I share some common traps that I see happening to people, women in particular, and I explore how the powerhouse women we all admire avoid these particular traps. The first trap I share about is the use of filler words. The second one is being afraid to embrace the power of the pause. The third common trap is rushing one's time away rather than taking the time needed to share ideas. The fourth trap is the inability to stand in one's own power. And the last trap I share is the use of uptalk or up-speak at the end of one's sentences. We'll talk about how to avoid these traps and how to become a more confident communicator. Finally, I share a bonus tip with you - the three P's approach to handling unprompted questions, which is a very effective method to field those unexpected questions that might come up when presenting! Listen in to hear how that works! Check out Amy Cuddy’s TED Talk! Learn more about ME here.   Book a Call with me and let’s get to know each other.

Saying SORRY All the Time is Reducing Your Credibility
In this episode, I describe what it looks like when we're apologising all of the time in the workplace (and in our lives), and how this behaviour can negatively impact us and cause us to miss out on career opportunities. After describing what saying SORRY all the time looks like and sharing a little about my own experiences with it, I provide listeners with five tried and true tips sure to curb this habitual behaviour. (1) Create awareness around the habit of saying sorry. (2) Swap out "sorry" for "thank you!" (3) Remember that you are paid to have an opinion on things, so start owning yours more. (4) Measure the themes of when this need to apologise comes up in your life. (5) Dig a little deeper into why you apologise so regularly. If you follow these five tips, you'll find yourself curbing this habit and showing up with more confidence and authority, which can really pay off!

Which Type of Imposter Are You?
In this episode, I talk with you about what imposter syndrome is, and I’ll dig into the four major types of imposters we find when we explore the phenomenon of imposter syndrome: (1) the perfectionist (2) the workaholic (3) the natural genius and (4) the expert. I share with you about how each type of imposter presents itself and which questions to ask yourself if you believe you might have one of those types as your very own version of imposter syndrome.  I also share four major tips to put into action once you recognize the role that imposter syndrome might be playing in your life. Listen in to better understand these four major tips: (1) Call your syndrome out for what it is when it occurs. (2) Recognize where your imposter shows up. (3) Visualize your imposter and call her out when she appears! (4) Collect the facts and deal in reality! If you’re ready to learn HOW to manage your imposter, and how you can start to push through when those moments of insecurity do come in to play, then listen in and learn more.

Where It All Started - My Story
In this inaugural episode of the Eating Your Cake Too podcast, I share about my own personal journey that led me to the creation of the Eating Your Cake Too business and ultimately to this exciting moment of my very first podcast episode! In this episode, I talk about my childhood experiences, my early career pathway, and the more recent years that have led me to become the global career and leadership coach that I am today! I hope you’ll laugh and nod along with me as I open up and share my own vulnerable experiences and testing moments that led me to find my own way forward and to now empower others to get out of their own way so that they can live more fully too.  I can’t wait to get started with you here!  Learn more about ME here.   Book a Call with me and let’s get to know each other.
