“You’re not going to make a huge impact and transform your audiences’ lives and work if you’re hiding. I’ll help you break out of your shell and emerge as a fully expressed version of the real you.”
Lisa Braithwaite, speaker, coach and author, shares her definition of mindfulness: “Being aware of what’s happening around you and inside your body and your head.” A self admitted non-meditator, she does do her best to get into nature in her town of Ojai, California. There is an oak forest just outside her window where she retreats when she needs to get grounded. She also focuses on what she puts into her body.
Questions they explore:
- How does mindfulness show up in your life?
- How do you inspire people to be real and create community?
- How much can we serve and connect with others?
- Are you willing to have the courage to ask for help?
- What is something you can do today to move your business forward?
- How can we engage listeners better?
- How can listeners catapult their message into the world?
Part of Lisa’s work is teaching networking techniques, assisting clients with mindset changes to connect with others. In public situations, Lisa uses her ability to connect people to resources that they need. Holly and Lisa discuss how women today are helping and inviting goodness into the world. Holly suggests the mantra of “Let those who I need to serve or be served by show up.”
CliftonStrengths Finder is a resource that Lisa uses and recommends. Her number one strength is “Activator”.
Presenting for Humans, Lisa’s book was written to help people with engagement and connection and remind those who speak that we are all just human, no matter the audience. She reminds us to ditch the perfection and just be in the moment, get out of your head, and engage with the audience in a way that they interact with you and share what is important to them. There is no such thing as a person that is naturally talented getting to great heights without working on their skills. Lisa’s life work is helping people become better humans so they can serve other humans.
