How we show up as leaders at home and work usually differs, you may be like today’s guest Heather, who had a disconnect between being a fantastic leader in her business and feeling like she was failing as a parent. Today’s interview explores managing your feelings, energy, and triggers at home and in your business.
Heather shares her journey between wanting to be a good mother and feeling fulfilled in her career. We explore how you might be addicted to stress and adrenaline and the importance of looking for that high outside your business.
We discuss not reacting when you’re in your red zone, how Heather operates to ensure her team feels supported even when they mess up, and how she leads by taking ownership of her trigger and the story it’s telling her. In this episode, Heather also shares why you should manage your energy, not your time, and her workflow for processing her emotional regulation.
Learn more about my guest:
Heather Chauvin is a leadership coach who helps ‘successful’ women courageously and authentically live, work, and parent on their own terms. Heather started her career as a social worker helping adults understand children’s behavior. But it wasn’t until 2013 when a stage 4 cancer diagnosis pushed her to take a deeper stand for change, uncovering how cultural expectations sabotage our dreams. She has been featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, Real Simple Magazine, Mind Body Green, Google, and more. When Heather isn’t working, you will find her living out what she teaches which may include kayaking Alaska, snowboarding, hiking, or anything else that challenges what she believes is possible for herself (and inviting her children along the journey). Life is full of opportunities. It’s time to feel alive.
