TNW37: The View From the Pillow Fort

TNW37: The View From the Pillow Fort

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I interview Crystal Bennett Harris on the view from her pillow fort. We talk about a recent transition she’s gone through and how that has affected her view of her business, her role in it, and what she wants to do next.

Some people are into change while some aren’t. But if we don’t change, how effective will we be?

Crystal Bennett Harris a mom of three and a change manager who helps individuals in organizations adopt behaviors, and implement change management strategies to maximize employee adoption and retention as well as customer attraction and retention.

Today Crystal shares how she loves her work and how her role as a change manager is vital in helping develop both the growth of the company as well as its employees.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • Authenticity
  • Getting to the root cause of people’s behavior
  • Recognizing when you need a change manager
  • Skills, attitudes, and metrics and how to inspect change
  • Stepping back from raw emotions and really being right in it

TNW32: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life with Cristin Downs

In this episode of The Notable Woman Podcast, I give you a taste of the Super U Summit with my talk: Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life.

Super U Summit 4.0 begins on May 6th, but if you’ve never attended before, you might not be sure if it’s for you. That’s why I decided to give you a taste of the summit with my talk from Super U 3.0 – Disrupt Your Thoughts, Disrupt Your Life. The Super U Summit is all about empowering women, and in this talk, I take aim at the thought patterns that are determining the actions you take. Might you be stuck because your thoughts are actually keeping you there? Until we examine them, we don’t really know. 

This talk is for anyone who has ever been stuck, and they’re not sure why.

IN THIS EPISODE, I EXPLORE:
  • What the Super U Summit is
  • What it means to disrupt our thoughts
  • How our thoughts determine our judgments determine our actions
  • How we can examine what we think
  • How we can get started changing what we think
  • How you can sign up for the summit (right here!)

Meeting Ruby Dee, Robert Downey Jr., James Earl Jones, Ntozake Shange, and Dana Reeve were all fairly awesome moments.
