08: Being Powerful When Dealing with Gossip
Climbing the Pillars of Power is all about empowering women in their work and in their lives. It is about finding the places where you lack power or are not as powerful as you would like and discussing the why’s and what to do about it. In this podcast we discuss one of the most destructive habits that all of us participate in to a degree—gossip! From simple gossip with a friend to the extreme behavior of blackballing, gossip causes damage. However, research shows that we all have and do participate for reasons that have to do with social behavior. Think about all the times in your life, from a young age that had you feel special when someone shared a ‘secret’ about someone else. It seems innocent, until you are the someone whose secret is shared! You may feel like you have no control, you might be embarrassed or feel shunned or even ashamed, or simply angry. All, of course, normal reactions but not powerful. In this podcast, I give you alternative ways to respond when you are the subject of gossip that leave you powerful. I also give you techniques to be effective when you have something you are not happy with other than complain and gossip to others. I think you will find what this podcast has to offer you is lifelong solutions that you leave you powerful and producing results you will be happy with.

07: Where’d My Confidence Go?
Climbing the Pillars of Power is all about empowering women in their work and in their lives. It is about finding the places where you lack power or are not as powerful as you would like and discussing the why’s and what to do about it. In this podcast we discuss the primary thing that undermines your success- in life, in business, in relationships, in your money: a lack of Confidence. It may not be obvious that why you often don’t have what you want is due to confidence or a lack of it. However, in all my years of coaching thousands of women, when we really get into what is at the source or origin of a lack of power or freedom, what we discover is that there is a lack of confidence. You may be confident and highly successful in one area of your life and not in another area. For example, you may be a superstar in your career, but your relationships are not great. Or you have great relationships, but you struggle in your business or in your career. Whatever the case is for you, delving into what happened and doing the exercises will help you in the areas of life that are not magical. I am sharing stories and the premise from my book, titled, Where’d My Confidence Go…and how do I get it back? This book is available on Amazon and Kindle and includes a free workbook. In this podcast I will invite you into the world and the first chapters of the book and discuss how doing work for yourself on your confidence will make a difference in your success and your enjoyment of life as well as your career.

06: Stop Apologizing
Climbing the Pillars of Power is all about empowering women in their work and in their lives. It is about finding the places where you lack power or are not as powerful as you would like and discussing the why’s and what to do about it. In this podcast we discuss one of the most powerful and simple ways to reclaim your power. You have a bad habit that literally takes away your power and is completely preventable. Women do this so often it is invisible to you. What am I talking about in this episode of Climbing the Pillars of Power? The bad habit of apologizing…. Reflexively, automatically for almost everything. We have been trained since childhood to be polite, but has this training gone too far and robbed you of your power, your ability to influence, decreased your paycheck and lowered your chances of rising in the corporate ladder or expanding your business? YES! To top it off, most people apologize in the place of actually being responsible. In the podcast learn how to take responsibility without a simple apology and have everyone satisfied. In this podcast you will learn about the research that shows the true cost of this habit and what to do to interrupt the habit and reclaim your power and ability to influence and get ahead.

05: Climbing Through The Doorway To Reality
When you are dealing with reality you are powerful. Unfortunately, oftentimes we are not dealing with facts, but are dealing with a skewed view of what is real. My intention in this podcast is to give you some insight and some ways that you can be more powerful by being able to distinguish or discern when you are dealing with the reality/truth of something or not. And today with all of the varied skewed stories it is more confusing and important to talk about. Who do you believe and what are the facts, what is real—all important to figure out. This is not a podcast about the real vs the fake news, however, I just want to use the media and social media as a way to point out the impact on our lives of what is real and true. "You could consider your mind is simply trying to predict the future to protect you from what it sees as potential catastrophes ... doing this limits your view to creatively problem solve and cause you undue stress." -- Janet Zaretsky

04: Climbing the Pillar of Influencing
In this episode of Climbing the Pillars of Power, I talk about some common situations women have to deal with on an almost daily basis that impact our ability to effectively influence those around us. Some of these situations include "mainsplaining", having someone else take credit for your ideas, not being confident enough to voice your ideas, and automatically apologizing; which is a personal pet peeve of mine. Today, I'm providing you with some tips and techniques on how to handle these situations so they no long diminish your ability to influence others. “If there’s one thing you could do to impact your ability to influence, it’s to stop automatically apologizing.” – Janet Zaretsky

In this episode of Climbing the Pillars of Power, we talk about self-doubt. Self-doubt effects all of us and it robs us of our power. Self-doubt is costly in both a personal and professional way. That's why I wanted to address this issue early on and provide some exercises to help combat self-doubt. “For all of us, self-doubt starts young and it is fueled throughout our lives.” – Janet Zaretsky
