As the COVID19 crisis rages on, women are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the
economic, medical and personal repercussions of the pandemic. Could more have been done to prepare? Irene Natividad, leader of The Global Summit of Women and the first Asian American women to lead a political
organization, argues “yes.”

In this episode, Kim Faith and Natividad discuss the need for governments and businesses to seek women for positions of power, especially when it comes to preparedness. As the caretakers of the world, women are instinctive planners and
long-term thinkers, yet the American economy is built on instant gratification and short-term gain. Because not enough women are in decision-making roles, they often fall victim to the decisions made by others too focused on short term gains.
With her uniquely global view, Natividad uses her platform to encourage women to become consumers, workers, and most importantly, leaders. Tune in to be encouraged by her wisdom and passion during this uncertain time.

Candice Thompson, Business Strategist and Founder of the CoBridge Group

Are you investing too much emotional bandwidth into “fixing” yourself? When you look in the mirror, do you see your potential or do you see your flaws? Do you feel isolated in your quest for perfection? Perhaps the truth is that you are not alone and, actually, an important part of a much larger collective story.

In this episode, Kim Faith dives deep into her new book, Your Lion Inside, along with powerhouse and marketing strategist Candice Thompson. Together they discuss how – and why – women are still living by rules that were written without consideration of the female impact, perspective, or even any female input.

The shortcomings we see in the mirror with the way we look, speak and act, are all part of a flawed narrative that the world has given us,” Kim says.

While this narrative is part of our history, it’s unbalanced, and it only represents one side of the equation.”

Kim discusses how throughout her career coaching female professionals, she observed women desperately trying to fit into boxes that were never designed for them. Those boxes were too small and too predictable to fit the magnificence she would see in women!  It’s time to rewrite the narrative and that means taking a close look at those rules that became belief systems.

Kim’s research made her acutely aware of seven prevalent belief systems – mental models – proverbial glasses through which women were commonly seeing the world. These mental models served as the inspiration behind the sisterhood of seven she felt compelled to write about to let women around the world know “You are not alone!”

Tune in to learn more about the sisterhood and become aware of your mental model. Find out how to make intentional, purposeful life choices, and how to discover your power to create the life you were meant to live.

Maria Moraes Robinson, CEO Holonomics (Brazil) Sao Paulo, Brazil

What can wild animals teach us about being human? How can we leverage today’s vast interconnectivity to become better versions of ourselves? In this episode, author and economist, Maria Moraes Robinson, shares her ‘holonomic’ view of the world.

Having grown up in the Pantanal wetlands of Brazil, Maria was able to tap into the wisdom of nature at a very young age. The boundless flora and fauna served as the catalyst to Maria’s understanding of human nature.

In 2014, Maria and her husband wrote about a groundbreaking new world view where economics and ecology are in harmony – holonomics. Their book, Holonomics: Business Where People and Planet Matter uses real-world case studies and practical exercises to guide people toward a more sustainable future where both people and planet matter. What are those qualities unique to women that can provide a significant contribution to this purposeful quest?

 

Maria offers the insight that the complexity and chaos of today’s world are not to be feared but rather embraced and understood. Our interconnectedness allows us to share our passions, experiences, successes and failures, meaning that we are able to improve who we are as women and as human beings.

“If we open our minds, expand our consciousness and remove judgement, we can have open dialogue and find new ways to evolve together.”

James Crawford, writer, storyteller and social media strategist, proud father of 3.

Do you feel like society’s traditional rules are no longer working for you? Are news and media
forcing you to adopt someone else’s view of the world? Do you know you are capable yet still
feel like you’re failing? Kimberly Faith has been there too.

In this episode, the tables are turned as Kim becomes a guest on her own show. She discusses
her new book The Lion Inside and the difficult personal history that led her to write it. Kim
herself hit a low point in her late thirties when the start-up company she’d launched with her
young daughter, as a means of showing her that “dreams do come true”, was going under.
Learning to fail with grace became the real lesson for Kim and her daughter and eventually
became the leverage of Kim’s life. Now 10 years later, Kim uses those difficult life experiences
to teach women around the world how to reframe their perspectives and take charge of their
lives.

Moreover, as the centennial anniversary of the women’s right to vote approaches, Kim
foreshadows that women are at a critical “choice” point in history where they can
continue to give into fear, chaos and drama or trust themselves enough to change their
destiny.

Be inspired as Kim dives into today’s most relevant subject-matter like gender roles, the
#MeToo movement, and failing gracefully. Don’t miss this episode with critically acclaimed
author and podcast host, Kimberly Faith.

How can women today redefine how we respond to power, risk, and a ‘boys club’ board room world? Bright, articulate, and with a dose of wisdom, Suzy Welch joins me to chat about the edge and excitement that comes from redefining yourself.

Suzy used to be terrified of risk. A long time ago she struggled with sadness and anxiety. As a single mom with 4 kids, maybe she had reason to. But, hers is a story of trying again. Today, she is a a passionate woman doing inspiring things. She is a noted business journalist, co-founder of the Jack Welch Institute, speaker and TV commentator, board member, and entrepreneur.

With all her children grown, she’s charging into a new part of her journey, defining her ability to be present for others, and how she defines her own time. How do we make people feel seen and heard, when we are in position of power? Are we giving them our sincere attention and respect? Follow her ‘Egg Timer’ story, from her chat with Warren Buffet.

I’m thrilled to share with you her insights into the paradoxical ‘humility of power,’ and how gender bias never held her back from her dreams. Finally, she encourages women of any age to get leadership experience. The world needs the edge only you can bring.

Rachel Greedy, Vice President Delivery, Capgemini – United Kingdom, along with her mum, Fran Thackeray

Is it just me or do things just sound better from our British friends?!? Join us in an honest conversation about a wide range of topics, all on women in the modern world. We cover:

  • Why is feminism is being rejected by many young women?
  • Did 5 red-headed sisters from a time long ago (a ‘fearsome sight!’) really set the stage for family legacy of courage?
  • Can awareness really be the key to an entirely new world?

Rachel Greedy, recently promoted to Vice President, and her mum offer insights into things often unsaid between generations. They are funny, sobering, and inspiring. Surprisingly, conversations among women in England are similar to ours in the USA. It’s another reminder that we’re far more alike than different. Rachel shares a passion with me to spread the message of empowerment to women around the world. Can you believe she has shared my book with women in Finland, Denmark, Norway and England? Tune into this #globalsisterhood and be inspired!
