Ep077: Wendy Delmar - Challenge Yourself With The Uncomfortable

Ep077: Wendy Delmar - Challenge Yourself With The Uncomfortable

June 18, 2020

My guest this week, is highly accomplished CEO Wendy Delmar. With over 20 years of experience in mainstream banking to the leadership of the Caribbean Association of Banks Inc. Wendy shares the challenges (some very personal) and opportunities that helped her grow to become a solid individual in the field of finance. 

Wendy describes herself as well-balanced, career driven and self-motivated, but she notes that life has ensured that she appreciates the opportunities to stop and smell the roses - those being family and friends - being intimately familiar with the sting of loss. Wendy is a widow, and mother to 3 beautiful boys, whom she describes as her foundation. All of which keeps her grounded and challenges her daily to be the best version of herself.

076: Having the race conversation as a leader

076: Having the race conversation as a leader

June 11, 2020

Being unafraid to have uncomfortable conversations!

I'm hearing this phrase a lot recently - persons having uncomfortable questions about race and racism.

I say persons as this conversation isn't exclusively uncomfortable for white people, it's uncomfortable for black people too but it is a conversation that can't be ignored especially if you lead a team.

I tapped into my own experiences and those of my colleagues - black and white who are leading racially diverse teams to seek their advice and to share their strategies.

Ep074: Getting clear on what you don’t want.

May 21, 2020

The pandemic is giving us a chance to reflect on what's been working and what's not working in our lives and how we live. We're questioning our decisions, our choices and we're trying to figure out what's the next step - sometimes that can be challenging. The one thing we can often be clear on however, is what we don't like and in this episode I outline an exercise you can do to gain some insight to move forward.

Ep070: 5 ways to own your awesome

Ep070: 5 ways to own your awesome

April 23, 2020

Can you build your confidence?

A lot of people reflexively say “No – you’re either confident or you’re not.” But in my experience, that’s simply not true.

Confidence is a skill, and like any other skill, you can master over time and even the most confident people can struggle with feeling confident at times. 

This episode I’m sharing five easy ways to help you tap into your own confidence and provide a little inspiration for you.
