Leadership coaching that will help you own the room.

Watch your mouth, woman.

Watch your mouth, woman.

Hello Fierce One,

This was a fun week. I kicked things off in Toronto, where I attended the National Business Book Awards. A book I co-wrote with Annette Verschuren was a finalist for the prestigious award. We didn’t win, but I had a BLAST, and I got to meet a childhood hero, Pamela Wallin.

Now a senator, Ms. Wallin was a prominent TV journalist when I was growing up and she inspired me to pursue journalism as a career. She’s seen her share of public scrutiny in recent years, and it was amazing to meet her in the flesh and tell her how much she inspired me all those years ago.

Speaking of journalism and words and story-telling and messaging…

We’re gearing up for my 3-day women’s leadership conference Your Million Dollar Message: Find Your Voice, Craft Your Talk, Change the World. And while sharing your message is about more than the words you say (as we’ll discuss at the retreat), the fact is, words are powerful.

So how are you using your words...on you?

This week I heard a woman describe her work as “crap” 3 times in 20 minutes. I heard another woman describe her networking persona as “bumbling idiot.” Yet another apologized twice in five minutes for...nothing.

Do you ever do this?

If so, then I invite you to consider watching your mouth. smile

Be conscious of how you weaponize words against yourself and others.

Watch the tendency to kick off a conversation -- especially when you’re nervous -- with self-deprecation.

Words -- especially words we use to describe ourselves -- have a profound and often self-fulfilling effect.

Life is challenging all on its own -- why add negative self-talk into the mix?

Stay fierce,

Eleanor
