The Coffee with Rhonda Show

You are invited to enter the stress-free leadership zone. Join us for practical strategies and heart-felt support for overwhelmed leaders to become stress-free leaders. By the way… “What’s in your cup?”

Employees today are closely evaluating what they are or are not getting from their jobs.

Estimates are that disengaged employees cost US companies alone close to $500 billion annually. In fact, Gallup reports that only 15% of employees are engaged. It doesn't stop there. Estimates are that up to 2/3 of leaders are not engaged or actively disengaged.

Add all of this up, and the result could be a volatile cocktail that stifles an organization's growth and negatively impacts the bottom line.

Given the current state, what can organizations do to create cultures of empowerment and well-being?

Let's talk about creating cultures of empowerment and well-being!

Most of us have a natural tendency to tell.

Leaders tell others what they should do and why. Entrepreneurs tell potential clients about their product or service and why they should buy it.

Yet, you are not getting the buy-in or sales you expect. There is something missing.

This week on The Coffee with Rhonda Show, we discuss the importance of Selling YOU. There are several critical aspects of sales that directly impact your ability to lead your team or your business. Selling yourself is one of them.

Roz Jones, Mireille Toulekima, and I are over-the-moon excited to welcome a special guest, The Sales Guru - Che Brown. You don't want to miss this one.

You have a brand.

 

Yes, leaders, I'm speaking to you.

Entrepreneurs, I'm absolutely speaking to you.

 

Your brand is an extension of you. It represents you. It lingers on whether you are present in the moment or not. One of the most damaging situations for leaders and entrepreneurs today is the default brand. This is a brand that develops without intentional thought and attention.

 

Joining us this week is Brandmaster extraordinaire Christopher Andrade. Join Roz Jones, Mireille Toulekima, and myself as we talk with Christopher about how to command your brand.

 

About Christopher:

Christopher Andrade is an Arizona native and the owner and creative director of the commercial communications boutiques Neo Media Branding and Sound Motion Vision.

Christopher mentored under legendary Disney creatives Ron Swartz and Roger Persoll and Marriott Hotels brand guru Mike Heil. He has a passion for persuasive engagement psychology, comedy in every discipline, is a classically trained commercial illustrator, voice actor, writer, power-brand consultant, film/television and event production designer, strategic advertising-marketing director, and media viceroy for constructive organizations and blue-chip brands in entertainment, media, fintech, communications, broadcast, public relations, healthcare, real estate, luxury resort, and travel, as well as helping solopreneurs and charitable/philanthropic entities.

He is the creator of offsite-total immersion executive training experiences, “The Diversity Advantage,” “No Limits,” ”Fiscal and Physical Fitness,” "Rocket Popcorn,” and “Brand GUSTO!” He lives and works in Peoria, AZ with Bridget, his much-smarter and ever-gorgeous high school sweetheart, and their daughter Chrysta (who just earned her master’s degree in Psychopharmacology, from the University of Colorado, Boulder), where he writes and performs dubious comedy and designs props for film and television “because it’s free of politics."

Think of one leader you admire. Which of the following characteristics did they possess?

  • The ability to inspire and empower others
  • The ability to articulate a clear vision
  • Confidence
  • Comfortable in their own skin
  • They work calmly in high-stress situations
  • Visual appearance is consistent with culture and aspirations

Executive presence can feel "subjective," leaving leaders struggling to determine what it is and how they should show up.

Are authentic leadership and authentic living just hype? Or are they essential for getting results in both your personal and professional life?

We often associate these qualities with "bad leadership."

  • Poor results
  • Overbearing
  • Micromanagement
  • Lacking authenticity
  • Lack of consistency

But, what if there was an unseen driving force behind these challenging leadership behaviors? Confidence, while not always seen, plays a significant role in our behavior and how we show up. And, it is not as easy as it sounds.

 In this episode of The Coffee with Rhonda Show, we'll discuss the warning signs of leaders who lack confidence and specific steps they can take to turbo-boost their confidence so they can achieve greater balance, less stress, and bigger results.

Why do DEI initiatives miss the mark?

Two reasons are self-regulation and self-awareness.

Two terms that sound like they should be so much easier than they actually are. Often DEI initiatives are focused on what we can count instead of how we feel.

In this episode of The Coffee with Rhonda Show, we discuss why diversity, equity, and inclusion often do not lead to the desired outcome of belonging. As a bonus discussion, we'll also explore why our emotions can sometimes feel like a runaway train leading to behaviors that seem reasonable at the moment but can have long-term undesired consequences (ie: The Slap).

Join us in welcoming back to the show, special guest Casey Lankow as we discuss what we get wrong about belonging and strategies for creating accepting and authentic cultures.

COVID, jobs, politics, family... oh my! I feel stuck! Biologically, we are hardwired for comfort. We look for control as a means of affirmation that things are okay.

Given the level of uncertainty and chaos we are experiencing today, it threatens that sense of control and stability. As a result, my guest this week says getting stuck is normal. However, he also says that STAYING stuck is a choice. Going into 2022, are you ready to make a different choice?

On this episode of The Coffee with Rhonda Show,  Roz Jones, Mireille Toulekima, and I welcome special guest Paul Litwack to the coffee table.
