What if you have worked for 20 years to get your dream job, at the top of your field, only to realize the hustle, 12-hour days, and big paycheque aren’t what you ever wanted. This is what my guest, Jamie Fiore Higgins, lived. She didn’t just have the hustle, she also endured a toxic workplace where she was expected to tolerate misogynistic comments, harassment, exclusion and physical abuse.

In this episode, Jamie and I talk about being professional women in the workplace and how there is still a lot companies need to do to change their culture to include diversity, flexibility and transparency if they want to attract and retain the best talent; of whom women are a major part of. In fact, women are often held back because they are mothers but what makes them a great mom, makes them great leaders!

Women bring to the workforce stills that benefit the workplace like being better at multitasking, listening, conflict resolution, and empathy, compared to their male counterparts.

Jamie is inviting women to take a step back and look at their work and workplace through the lens of their values and what they really want in their lives. Sometimes we work so hard, we don’t realize that WE aren’t happy and the only one we are letting down is ourselves.

Why does this even matter? Because our kids are watching and we’re modeling for them what’s ok and what’s not. Gen Z is looking at us being mistreated and saying a big “Oh Hell NO! I’m not going to work in an environment or for a boss like that!”

To help us navigate this, Jamie has prepared a “self-assessment” document to help you determine what you really want in your life and how to start to make the small changes to get you there!
