Freedom of Leadership

5-Actions to Help You Lead Yourself

JMT_headshot.jpg

Tracy Washington

Executive Leadership Advisor

We are discussing how to be a leader of yourself, on the job, in your home and the marketplace. It is difficult to lead others if you do not know how to direct yourself. Jesus Christ is our perfect example a true servant-leader who governed himself with restraint and excellence. Our guest Tracy Washington is one of the nation’s leading trainers on Relationships, Human Behavior and Leadership.  She states, “Leadership is an influence. Our position is to become someone that someone else wants to follow.”

Tracy works with mid to senior level managers to help them improve relationships with teams, upper management, and customers so that they establish trust and respect that create a culture of profitability and success for themselves and their organizations.  She also runs a coaching program entitled “Executive RoundTable for Women in Leadership” to help women leaders elevate their leadership style.

Tracy is passionate about helping individuals and corporate clients profit by experiencing better professional and personal relationships.  Ms. Washington helps women find their true passions in order to reach their full potential. She states, “A woman that can make things happen understands they have power. Some feel like an imposter, but the feeling never goes away. We must walk with it, learn how to manage it and walk in confidence. “

Her key points of learning how to lead yourself are below:

1.        Self-care is first. You can’t get anything done from a deficit. As women, we give of ourselves without giving back to ourselves. Take care of yourself so you can properly care for others.

2.        Know who you are.  Do a personal assessment so you understand your unique qualities and identity in Christ. Understand that you are more than the roles you play. Take the time to figure out who you are.

3.        Inventory the relationships around you. Evaluate everyone in your life. Are you spending time with people who don’t add value to you? Are they pouring into you are taking from you?

4.        Raise your level of success. Look at the things that you don’t have to increase your worth. Invest in classes, coaching and read to help you get to your next level of success. Look at your finances and be a good steward.

5.        Don’t compare yourself to others. Get a mirror and look at your reflection. Appreciate who you are and where you are at this moment.

Refresh Your Spirit: How to Bounce Back from a Life Changing Diagnosis

DorettaGadsdensmall.jpg

Doretta Gadsden, RN, CPC

Author of Living Victoriously: Strategies to Empower Women with a Chronic Diagnosis

Many of us have the testimony of the woman with the issue of blood in the bible (Luke 8:43-44). She pressed her way through a horrific crowd to receive healing by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment.  On the other hand, others must identify with Paul, the Apostle. He dealt with a condition God would not remove. Instead, God’s grace and power strengthened Paul in spite of his condition (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Likewise, Doretta Gadsden is a woman of God who overcame incest, drug addiction and a diagnosis of AIDS (Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome) to be a shining light to others. She shares her strategies to live a vibrant life with the AIDS virus.Ms. Gadsden discusses her journey of becoming a Registered Nurse, author,speaker and life coach.  Doretta’s strategies include the following:

·                 Prayer and meditation - Learn to sit still and hear from God

·                 Take Action - Once God directs you take the steps given

·                 Support group – Surround yourself with positive people who speak life over you

·                 Stretch yourself – Educate yourself on the best doctors and medicines available for your condition

Ms. Gadsden provides more tips in her book, Living Victoriously: Strategies to Empower Women with a Chronic Diagnosis. She states,“The main message is you are bigger than any diagnosis or circumstance that isin your life at this moment.”  The book is in the Amazon Store at http://bit.ly/LivingVictoriously.

Change Your Mindset

By: Angeline Lawrence

Our mindset determines our success in walking with Christ.  If we allow a negative and self-willed mindset to determine our actions then we are in serious trouble.  Obtaining the mind of Christ is not a task, but a process. Check out the latest episode as I discuss the scripture in Philippians 4:7 which states, “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (NIV)

How to Overcome Fear by Angeline Lawrence

January 6, 2015
00:0000:00

Overcoming Fear

Angeline Lawrence, Host

In past episodes, I discussed the love God has for us. If that love is strong and without any fear, then we are unstoppable.  Fear is defined as an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.  It does not have to be an actual threat, but our anticipation of a threat. Fear can paralyze us and hinder our faith walk.

We must overcome the fear to show that we’ll obey the voice of God regardless of the situation. Ultimately, our love for God is shown through obedience to Him.

Yes, we may naturally have concerns when God is taking us through an experience in our lives that is new. Yet, we must obey his Word and follow his voice so that our love is perfect. I John 4:18 “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” (NIV)

Listen in as I discuss overcoming fear.

Thanks again for joining me and Happy New Year.

I have a special offer for Shine and Grind listeners for the pre-sell of my book, "The Working Women's Guide to Winning: Defeat Satan at His Own Game with Integrity” that will be published in 2015.

Power of Self-Evaluation

December 18, 2014

The Power of Self Reflection

By: Angeline Lawrence

It’s hard to believe that 2014 is almost over. As many of us have a break over the holidays, it’s a prime opportunity to evaluate ourselves against the Word of God. James 1:23-24 states, ”Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.” (NIV)

As Christians, our lives can be living examples of the goodness and morality of God.  We must constantly reflect upon our character in order to grow. Believing in Christ is just the beginning. We must emulate Him and seek to have his mindset.  Download today’s episode as I discuss the impact of self-evaluation.

New Announcement:

January 2015 is a new start. January is the launch of my one-on-one and group coaching sessions. As a life strategist, I will help you create a winning plan for your next dimension of success.  If you have a strong desire to do something more with your life, but not sure where to start, then contact me for a free 30-minute consultation. Visit www.vcita.com/v/angeline.lawrence.

Thank you again for joining me. I am offering all Shine and Grind listeners a free eBook, "Hearing the Voice of God.”  In it I provide 5 steps to position yourself to be led by the voice of God in your life. Grab your copy at http://bit.ly/1rdRCgs.
