Many women in my community struggle with people pleasing and in this week’s episode, I’m diving into what people pleasing is, how to identify it and how to put your own needs first.

A general definition of a people pleaser is a person who has the emotional need to please others, often at the expense of their own needs or desires.

In this episode, I share:

  • Four key signs that you’re a people pleaser
  • A description of my “Likeable Lucy” persona to help you identify how people pleasing may be impacting your leadership style
  • Why we are constantly training others how to treat us
  • How to set and communicate healthy boundaries
