Top 3 Takeaways
- Replenish for the win—High achievers are particularly susceptible to spreading themselves thin in pursuit of positive results. Remember to rest and recuperate when needed.
- Accentuate the positive—Resist the urge to dwell on what you could’ve done better. Take the opportunity to appreciate what you’re doing right and determine how you can take that to the next level.
- Develop complementary strengths—The act of leadership and developing others has the win-win effect of boosting your own capabilities. Help one another get better for twice the success.

“When we're trying to do it all, we end up depleting ourselves in such a fashion that we, we actually are, are working from an empty cup.“
“At some point we've got to replenish, otherwise we don't have anything else to put into the thing that we're working towards.”
“I really try to talk to my clients about recognizing that self compassion is an act of self-fullness not self-ishness.”
“We don't have to go it alone. We don't have to be isolated. We can ask for other people's opinions or maybe they've had a similar experience that we can build off of.”
“I truly believe that we learn when we are teaching others. Sometimes, when we are teaching others or leading others, we are actually stepping into those things for ourselves.”
“I think the pandemic has taught us this concept of really learning how to give ourselves grace as the environment changes, that some things are outside of our control, and it’s focusing back on What is within my control? What do I have the ability to do? How do I choose to show up?”
