Visibility circle intro

Click for video & More about visibility circle It's been almost a million years back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and yet I remember it as if it were yesterday. I can feel the wind as it picked up the dust on the playground and as the leaves on the trees lining the walkway gently swayed during recess.  This memory is of Little Davia in Elementary School. And you would not be surprised to learn that little Davia is not too different from the Davia you know and love now.  I hadn't thought of this memory in decades, centuries even, but as I was getting ready for a recent summit that I hosted, my coach asked me: “Of the millions of things that Ladies' Power Lunch has to make the life of the woman in business more ease and flow, which one do you want to share with your audience?” As she asked me this, I found that I was at a loss for words.

She shares with us on this episode the secret ingredient to collaborative leadership. My five big take aways from today's conversation: 1) Mary Ann says Leadership and collaborations do not have to be hard 2) Spend time doing tings that bring you joy! 3) Take breaks, BUT... take gratitude with you on your breaks, do not bring your to do list with you on your breaks! 4) Notice how you feel, reach for thoughts that bring you relief! 5) Use affirmations or comforting mantras. Maryann's favorite one: "All is well." That help's to bring your vibration back. All this and more on today's episode. By the way: Hi!
