It's the season finale!! What a season it was.
We discovered so many wonderful strengths to the highly sensitive professional. So many rich conversations.
So much so, that I'm excited to share that we'll come back in January with our fresh new rebrand
Check out the episode to learn more!
In the meantime, make sure to:
See you in January!
Well, hello there, friends and happy December. How did that even happen? How, is it December? I don't even know. But if you're anything like my house, you know what the last couple of months have been like with kids coming home sick and all the things. So my theory is that has something to do with it as to how it is already December.
And yeah. If you saw the title of today's episode, you'll know that it is the finale of season two. Yes, season two, which has been all about the highly sensitive professional. We are coming to a close on our season two. And coming back in January, we'll be coming back with season three. And I'm so excited to share with you that I have decided that the highly sensitive professional theme is is shifting a bit, but is staying with this podcast.
Here's what I learned over the summit that we held in October in talking with you in the Facebook community, in hearing back from people who are reading my emails and signing up for events. Here's what I've learned is that we are a community of sensitive high performers. This is what I've heard from you. You are a high performer, you're probably also a dreamer, an idealist. You want to make a difference. You are driven by purpose and mission and doing things in your career that is more than just climbing ladders and getting a bigger paycheck. I mean, although everyone, you know, come on, we all want a bigger paycheck too. Right. But it's not about the bigger paycheck. It's not about the title. It's not about any of that. What I heard from you is that you want impact, you want impact, impact, impact. You want to make a difference.
And, and do you want to do it with less stress. That's what we want. We don't want burnout. We don't want stress. We don't want to be joining old boys clubs. We want to be doing it with joy. We want to have vision. We want to use our intuition. We want to be innovative and we want that Zen still. That's what we want. We don't want those warrior morning's we don't want those survival mornings . We want more than that.
Now we're all gonna have those days, right? The survival moment days. You know, like I said earlier, sick kids coming home and trying to balance all the things, you know, maybe have elder care. There's a lot going on. There's a lot to juggle. There's a lot to balance.
So we are going to have those survival moments, right? Like that it'll never be gone. And at the same time, we want more than that. We want to bring more, we want to create more in our lives and in our careers. So that is what I heard. That's what I learned from you for sure. And so that's why I'm also very, very thrilled to give you a sneak peek is that we'll be coming back. Like I said, with a rebrand or reshifting to really specifically focus on sensitive high performers and we're going to be focusing on how sensitive high-performers can rise in your nine to five. You know, I know the term nine to five is such a bad rap, right. And, and of course it does because it's nine to five from Monday to Friday, that's a system that was built on a factory model. It's outdated. It's patriarchal. It has, there's so much as wrong with it. You know, we're seeing the data like what we've known intuitively. We're seeing the data now flood in from the experiment that happened over in Europe, about four day work weeks without a reduction in pay. It's for the most part, increasing productivity, bringing down stress levels.
So we're having increased mental health at having feeling better about our careers in our lives. And so the nine to five, he has such a bad rap. And yet it's a, it's a phrase we know, right. So we want to rise in that nine to five. And I actually would love to hear from you if you're listening to this, if you are getting my emails or in my community, in my DMS, Instagram, LinkedIn.
Wherever, you know me from like, this is genuine. I genuinely want to hear from you. What do you think of that phrase? Rise in your nine to five. What do you think about reclaiming the phrasing of nine to five? Because part of it is like, what about a nine to five from Monday to Thursday, we don't need don't necessarily need a five day nine to five.
But I also liked the idea of reclaiming nine to five about placing boundaries on our work. Right. The eighth. The other problem with not having nine to five is that we ended up feeling like we're, we're not just working nine to five, we're working five to nine, right? If you know, we get that feeling, that pressure, whether it's self-imposed or whether it is explicitly or implicitly part of the culture that you are on your phone at all hours, and that you should be responding.
There's that. Uh, tightness around that. So I really do genuinely mean this. I want to hear from you. And I mean it, because when I hear from you, it's going to play into how we rebrand going into January. So tell me, what do you think about the phrasing rise in your nine to five?
Because to me it means so many different things. It can mean rising into a, literally into that. You know, organizational hierarchical, higher quote position, even though I have lots of issues around that whole kind of visual of it being higher up. But still like, that's how we think of it. Right. Rising into a higher level position, but it doesn't have to be that right. It can also be like rising just yourself, feeling rising. Right. Rising. I just love that imagery. Right. Just rising up.
You know, for anyone who's followed any of my webinars. And that you'll know that I do a lot of that imagery around, uh, the universe. That's because I, I love my Sci-fi. Oh my goodness. Serenity, any other Firefly fans out there? Gaze. I love scifi. I love the idea of infusing concepts and visuals of Sci-fi and space and constellations and stars and radiating.
Confidence and power. I just love all of that. Right. So that's why I do it, but I want it. So I want to hear from you to see if you feel the same as I do or not. Okay. So that's the first thing to let you know, we are coming back in January, coming back with a rebrand around sensitive high-performers rising in our nine to five. So let me know what you think.
The other announcement. And if you follow me and you were online, you probably saw this. Is that we are doing an event in January, it is going to be, um, second or third week just pay attention to all the things that i do i'll you will see all the blasts of social media and emails and all the things it's like january 10th, i think or 12 around that time
so this January event, it's going to be so much fun. It's going to be four days. And right now I'm tentatively calling it Energize, but it might shift the us on the languaging. It's definitely going to have themes of conversation and connection and brunch and champagne mimosas. Having a really good time together, it's going to be amazing.
And what it's all about is cleansing out those imposter thoughts that we have, that it's just very natural. Most people have them. I'm going to show you how to cleanse those out and replace them with more powerful, much more productive thoughts and get you to a place where you learn, how you can radiate confidence, no matter what's happening around you. You're going to figure out how you can radiate professional confidence, and it's going to be so much fun.
With that theme I mentioned earlier, rise in your nine to five will probably have some rise and shine, champagne, breakfast, brunch coffees, or something. So stay tuned. It'll be so, so, so good. If you have any questions or ideas about the event, don't hesitate. Reach out. Make sure you're following me. I will definitely be announcing in here on a podcast, but also make sure you're on my email list in the group, all the places. And I'll let you know. Okay.
So with that. Yes, we are closing up the season. I hope you've enjoyed it and I hope you're as excited as I am. I'm sure you can hear it in my voice. I am so excited for the next season for the event we're going to have. And in the meantime, just to keep you sated over the next few weeks until we come back, make sure you go check out the career growth assessment that I have on my website. Now this is, this is new. And also if you haven't taken it in the last week or two, it's been significantly improved.
So definitely go take it. It's all about the, The seasons of a career growth cycle. So this is not about like, you know, are you going to grow and become a CEO? This is nothing like this. This is what the cyclical nature of being in a, uh, of your career. That it, you go through a cyclical cycle, just like the seasons. So what I've done is I've overlayed cyclical career seasons on top of the growth seasons. And so you go from summer to autumn to. Winter to spring. You hear me hesitating here. I've got a little, literally have a monkey on my back. I've got a little monkey here, right on my back. Okay. So definitely go check that out. It's at the mintambition.com/growth.
And then the other thing that I want you to do, so go first, go take that assessment and then come join the Facebook community as well. I'll still be hanging out in the Facebook community. It's only the podcast that's going on hiatus. So come on, to hang out with us. You can get email@example.com/community.
That's going to forward you right over to the Facebook group. So with that, I hope you have a wonderful December. I hope you are excited for us to come back in January. For season three and onward where it's all going to be about rising and growing. And radiating that confidence because I know that you are amazing.
You are meant to have impact. You are meant to rise. You're meant to lead. And I'm so excited that you are here with me and my community to do it together. So with that, have a good one. And I'll see you in January!
