Being a GirlBoss is often a lonely road and we have to celebrate our own victories and celebrate each other, every step of the way. We all need a little motivation and a friend to tell us how it is and make sure we are keeping it real. Leadership and Culture Changemaker, coach, writer and speaker, Deborah Hartung, is that friend.
Episodes are never longer than 15 minutes and always aim to educate, entertain and enlighten you, no matter your age or where you are on your leadership journey. Leadership & Personal Development for women leaders and entrepreneurs (and the men who support us).

Making Lemonade

Making Lemonade

2019-10-2900:08:39

As irritating as that old phrase is, most of the time, if we look back on our lives at the times we didn’t get what we really wanted, we find that things worked out better than we could have imagined at the time. The challenge is to just lean into life and trust that things always work out as they’re meant to.
Mindfully Grateful

Mindfully Grateful

2019-10-2900:08:29

After recently participating in a global 10 day gratitude challenge, Deborah shares some of her learnings and the importance of being more mindful of all the things we have to be grateful for, on a daily basis. Deborah talks about the free app “3 good things” that sends daily prompts to record 3 good things that happened or that you have to be grateful for, and encourages everyone to give ‘this gratitude thing’ a proper go!
3 Lessons in 3 Months

3 Lessons in 3 Months

2019-09-1300:09:52

After a rather long absence from the podcast, Deborah is back and explaining the 3 main reasons for her absence and the lessons she has learned in the process. Firstly, if you’re sick, you need to rest and recuperate and you shouldn’t be working or sending a sick colleague emails about work. Secondly, it’s impossible to do it all because there is a finite number of hours you have at your disposal and you need to choose how you spend that time and not feel guilty about it. And the final lesson is about being true to yourself and knowing what makes you happy at work and what drains you and doing more of what makes you happy.
Sometimes we forget that we have the power to make choices to change our situations and our lives. If you become aware of something that is causing you stress or making you unhappy, you can actively work towards changing it by either making some adjustments to improve it, or by walking away completely. Deborah reminds you to refer back to the GROW coaching methodology (discussed in an earlier episode) you need to make some changes in your life.
It’s ok to be sad or heartbroken or disappointed or to feel fear in a moment. Recognize the emotion. Sit with it for a while. Feel it and let it go. Don’t allow an emotion to control you or define who you become.
In our world of ‘always on’ we have all become socially conditioned to expect instant gratification. We are losing our ability to have patience and to understand that some things take longer than others. Deborah invites you to be realistic about your goals and the things you want and how long it would go to achieve or attain these, and to then actively practice patience in waiting for things to come to fruition or to unfold as they should.
Health, wealth and time

Health, wealth and time

2019-06-2600:09:19

After a 4 week absence due to illness, Deborah is back and sharing her very personal insights on the importance of looking after our own health and wellbeing and being selfish with our time. Money cannot buy us health and it cannot buy us more than the 24 hours we have in each day, so choose wisely and take care of yourself. For additional inspiration, watch the video by Jay Shetty about this very topic.
Just ‘love’

Just ‘love’

2019-05-2900:06:58

Instead of assuming that love is romantic or familial, Deborah encourages listeners to distinguish love-based actions and emotions from those that are fear-based and to act from a place of love, more often. For additional reading, check out Scott Stabile ‘Big Love’ and Sonia Chocquette ‘traveling at the speed of love’. Let’s make the world a better place by showing more love to all living beings!
Belief in Self

Belief in Self

2019-05-2800:06:24

You need to believe in yourself and your abilities, fiercely and unequivocally. Don’t let the fears of others - or your win negative self talk - get in the way of achieving your goals or taking risks to change the world. You are amazing and should be grateful just for ‘you’ every single day!
The Myth of Closure

The Myth of Closure

2019-05-2400:10:41

Are you still stuck on an event from the past? Something ended and you don’t really know why? Deborah talks about what she calls the ‘myth of closure’ and how you can move on by accepting an apology you will never get and making peace with an explanation you may never hear. Turn the page and move on with the story of your life after a chapter has ended, without clinging to needing some explanation or validation.
How many projects have you started and not finished? How many of those projects still belong on your to-do list? Deborah invites you to follow this inspiring mantra: stop Starting, start finishing and start where you are. No more procrastinating and no more feeling bad about all those unfinished projects. Do what you can with what you have and start where you are.
A Personal SWOT

A Personal SWOT

2019-05-2000:08:31

Your fear and self limiting beliefs are the only thing standing in the way of a world of opportunities for growth, Discovery, success and abundance. Deborah invites you to start a personal SWOT analysis to really start looking at the things that make you amazing and set you apart and to then identify just one opportunity that you can grab right now. The worst that can happen, is that someone says ‘no’. And there will always be other opportunities- the more you put yourself out there, the more you will see this to be true. What are you waiting for?!
Not My Job

Not My Job

2019-05-1400:09:16

The shadow side to being kind and empathetic and always willing to help others, is that we take on burdens that are not ours to carry. In this episode, Deborah reminds you that there are certain things in life which are possibly causing you anxiety and stress and overwhelm right now, which are not your job and not your responsibility. Identify the things that you’re objectively not responsible for and remind yourself that it’s ‘not my job’ and let it go, instead of adding more to your plate.
Deborah shares a very personal story about the importance of not internalizing the behaviors of others and not taking things personally. It’s important that we see people for who they are and meet them where they are on their journey and that we choose our battles wisely to conserve our emotional energy. Never take anything personally. It’s not a reflection of you - it’s a reflection of them.

3 lessons on Taking Chances

2019-05-0800:10:16

Deborah shares the top 3 Lessons she has learned over the past few years about taking chances in life and going after your dreams.
Simply having knowledge about something doesn't actually lead to lasting change. If we truly want to change our lives, we need to change our behaviors and we need to create healthier, more positive habits for ourselves. In this episode, Deborah explains why you should set some small, manageable goals and use a habit tracking app to really internalize the change.
The Best Compliment Ever

The Best Compliment Ever

2019-05-0200:07:32

What is the best compliment you have ever received? A compliment about your character and your way of showing up in this world? What lasting impression are you leaving on the people you interact with? Even if the interactions are brief and fleeting, you can still make sure that you are remembered for your warmth and empathy and kindness and authenticity. Deborah invites you to think of your absolute best qualities and to shine those into the world more often. She also asks that you tell your friends and loved ones what their best qualities are, so that they too, may rise to meet their best self.
In this retrospective, Deborah encourages you to be the Architect of your own life, instead of being a construction worker for someone else’s dreams. Gain some Perspective on work and life and start doing more of the things that bring you joy and less of the things that drain you and make you feel ‘less than’ your best self. Do the wheel of life exercise. Start keeping a mood tracker. Audit your circle. Use GROW coaching on yourself to actively craft the life of your dreams! Visit deborahhartung.com for free resources.
Reason, season or lifetime

Reason, season or lifetime

2019-04-2300:09:13

As with all things in nature, human relationships also go through cycles and we can be a lot happier and healthier if we all let go of our expectation that human relationships should last ‘forever’ or that any kind of a relationship ending, is somehow a ‘failure’. Deborah explains the approach of ‘reason, season or lifetime’ and reminds you that all things generally come to an end and reach their sell by date. And that is ok.
