Then listen in today as Sabrina Braham and Barry O’ Reilly shed more light on how behavioral changes can effect the progress of women in business. This podcast will share secrets that can help you “unlearn” certain behaviors for more success and discover useful ways to advance your career. Why is this Important? Plato once said that “human behavior flows from three main sources; desire, emotion, and knowledge”. This means that our behavior is largely hinged on the things we desire, how we feel and the things we know. It, therefore, goes without saying that our behavior towards our jobs and life as a whole goes a long way to determine the kind of output we get. As women in business, having the right behavior  and actions can take you a few steps higher on the corporate ladder. In order to achieve this, certain past behaviors have to be “unlearned” and new ones learned. This podcast will show you how a timely behavior change in business can positively effect career development for women.   Get to Know Barry O’ Reilly, Author of Unlearn; Let Go of Past Success to Achieve Extraordinary Results Barry O’ Reilly is an entrepreneur, business advisor and author who focuses on sharing his knowledge of product development, innovation, culture transformation in the workplace and team design for better business relationships and environments.

Unlearning what does not work and then learning new things isn’t always easy, but it is the only way to move forward in business and is a crucial part of behavior change for women leaders. Learn about the different signals that indicate the need to unlearn (11:50- 14:30) Knowing and describing what success means to you or your project is the segue to determining what behavior or actions need to be unlearned. Avoiding challenges or exhausting strategies without getting results are usually indicators that a modus operandi or behavior towards your goal needs to be unlearned. What are the different steps for behavior change for women leaders? (14:46-27:33) It is important to know exactly the things you want to unlearn, identify all the challenges and also be focused on what you want to achieve. Taking note of past behaviors gives one a clear idea of what steps can be taken or behaviors learned for better outcomes. Then you implement tiny new behaviors for greater success. Learn the mindsets to change a behavior (29:35-31:10) Having a good idea of the behaviors that are not beneficial to your journey towards your goals and learning a system to take small but decisive steps to curb them, will disrupt toxic patterns and give a clearer and easier path to success.

 The Power of Perception: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence and the Gender Divide | WLS 94 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:18

Do you ever wonder why is there such a large gender divide of women in senior management positions? Are you curious about the underlying reasons that women aren’t making it up to the higher levels? Do you want to know the two most important attributes to help you advance your career? Would you like to know the career development strategies successful women use to overcome self-imposed limitations? Then join me today with women's leadership, emotional intelligence and the gender divide expert and Author Dr. Shawn Andrews to learn how you can break the glass ceiling to advance your career, leadership and life. Here’s some important facts on women in the workforce: Women make up about 52% US labor force. We also know that women make up most professional occupations, such as attorneys and physicians. When you look at education, 60% of bachelor’s degrees in both the US and in Europe are obtained by women.  But here is the problem.  There are more women than men in the workforce and women have the professional degrees. Women are getting the experience and have the education to back them up.  So it would be a natural assumption to think that would translate into leadership and women climbing the corporate ladder. Unfortunately that is simply not the case. If you look at the number of female CEOs at our S&P 500 companies, it equals 5.2%. That translates into 26 female CEOs.   This is an unacceptable gender divide that my guest expert and I want to help change.

 The One Percent Edge | How Business Women Leaders Can Gain Advantage and Build Sustainable Success | Womens Leadership Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:54

How Business Women Leaders Can Gain Advantage and Build Sustainable Success? We all know change is one thing that’s constant in life, but how much effect does change really have? How important is it? How can you evolve to change and use change to keep business sustainable? Today we are going talk about how small changes can make a big difference and establish a sustainable business with entrepreneur Susan Solovic. Susan is a business woman herself, a business contributor to ABC News and other leading networks, and an award-winning serial entrepreneur. Susan is here with us to explore and help us understand how change gives that 1% edge to business women, help them move ahead in business, and how to make small changes for sustainable success. Being a serial entrepreneur, who else can better explain how to sustain as a business and coach on women's leadership? Right? “You don’t want to stay in the status quo.  You want to be in the status grow,” Susan Solovic Why Become Outdated and Extinct? Susan says many companies want to stick with what has worked for them in the past and follow them. This means, they’re looking back, instead of forward and that’s one of the key reasons they’re failing. Basically, they’re too engrossed with their operations and afraid to make changes. As a result, they’re following old styles and methods, failing to see how things are changing around them. Don’t Stay in “Status Quo” Instead be in “Status Grow” In her words, “You don’t want to stay in the status quo.  You want to be in the status grow,” We’ve all see numerous companies, even fortune 500 companies closing down their operations recently. It is not that they don’t have products that are in demand anymore; the truth is they have stopped being innovative. So, the first thing she addresses is the edge business women need for sustainability. Listen & Download Now How Business Women Leaders Can Gain Advantage and Build Sustainable Success? Business Women Innovation = Sustainability We all think innovation is a drastic change and a completely new concept or product. The truth is, it doesn’t have to be. Innovation is the edge that brings sustainability. Being on the lookout for changing trends and keeping oneself updated is the key to sustain in business. Does that mean the change is about how we look at things? It is. She’s quick to add that innovation doesn’t have to be destructive or something big, rather, even small and simple changes that will let us stay current. In her book for business women (and men), she says even with best products or concept, without the right people, management and infrastructure it will not  succeed. She says it is important to understand that there’s no need to make an impact to sustain as a business women, just adapt to stay ahead of competitors. When you want to evaluate and determine if the business is going in the right direction, ask yourself how do you do it? She says, everything should be questioned. She says the entrepreneur should feel proud about the achievement, but it is important to leave ego or other feelings at the doorstep and critically evaluate if everything is right. She says it is important to ask questions, small or big, absolutely everything should be evaluated and questioned: Do I have the right people? Do I have the right people? Are my products / services current? These are just a few suggestions to give you an idea. No Room for Ego She says it is equally important to ask tough questions. Examples include: Is the technology I am using current or outdated? Who is my competition? I have thought that myself when I started coaching in corporations and business women. I have always wondered how they would find time to strategize and t...
