Women in Leadership Keynote Speaker

By | keynote speaker, professional speaker | No Comments

Women in business make great leaders.

Yet only 5% of CEOs are women.

Women face unique challenges in leadership the most common being the self-esteem gap.

According to research by DDI, confidence is the top leadership difference between men and women although there is NO difference in capability between men and women.

Women are less likely to rate themselves as highly effective leaders.

Organizations with women leaders financially perform better.

Women need role models, mentors, and guidance to close the “self esteem gap.”

Why Values Matter in Business Leadership

By | inspiration, professional speaker | No Comments

And how you can be successful once your values are identified

Values in business leadership is an important topic if you are interested in attracting like-minded people to you or your business.

When you lead with your values, you can attract the perfect clients, hire the right employees and staff, find partnerships that will work, and find more fulfillment and purpose in what you do.

Here’s a confession: When my business partners and I started Boss Women Rock in 2013, we made the mistake of not identifying our shared values up front. This result was that we attracted mismatched clients and dealt with a lot of frustration in the early years.

It was hard for us to instantly see the repercussions of this since our business was booming and our client list was long. We actually had the problem of too many clients! But over time, what resulted was frustration from having to compete on price and just being seen as a commodity to a few of the business owners we worked with.

Because we failed to identify and communicate our values early on, we were frequently stressed out because we were working on projects that didn’t give us purpose. We were having communication problems with mismatched clients who didn’t see eye-to-eye with our approach and we had less job satisfaction.

There were so many days when I personally felt like giving up because I was not understood and respected.

I had a change of heart when we started making tough decisions about the types of projects we would accept and who we wanted to work with. We took time to examine our business from afar and realized that we needed to do this work. We need to identify and communicate our values.

My professional values are:jen devore mantra

Being true to self – trusting and having faith to be the person I am meant to be. Not an imitation or skin deep version. But showing up with everything that I am.

Financial magnetism – valuing my experience and knowledge enough so that others will too. Getting paid what I’m worth and not accepting second best.

Authority – owning my place as an expert in my field and sharing what I know in a way that is empowering and inspiring to others.


At Boss Women Rock, our values are:

  • Trustworthy & Integrity Filled Reputations that help build our brand and business.
  • Passionate Spirits that keep us motivated and inspire others.
  • Positive Attitudes about our work and lives.
  • Bold Visions for our future and current success as well as our clients.
  • Creative Minds to produce great work.
  • Results Oriented Actions for a more effective approach.
  • Fun, Playful Environments to make coming to work and working with us a joy.
  • Smart People so we can learn from each other.
  • Leadership Abilities to grow in our careers, lead by example and teach others.

The result has been amazing since staying true to our values!

In the last year, our revenue and profit is up while the number of projects we work on has gone down. Now, don’t be confused. This is a good thing! We’re working smarter and not harder. We’re working with the right clients that have shared vision and values. The result is that we have less stress and are happier at work on a day to day basis.

How To Identify Your Values for Business Leadership

So, how do you identify your values so that you can communicate them clearly and attract the perfect clients? The goal is to narrow down your values to the Top 3.

  1. To do this, start by creating a list of the values that your favorite existing clients have. This could be their corporate culture values and their personal values as well.
  2. Next, make a list of the values that describe your family members and friends. These are the people you enjoy being around the most and probably have the most in common with you.
  3. Then make a list of the values that your best employees, contractors, or partners have. Again, this can be their personal values.
  4. To wrap up the exercise, make a list of your values.
  5. Finally, you will look at your lists and combine like values together and eliminate the ones that are redundant or just not as strong.
  6. Narrow the list down to the top 6.
  7. Then narrow it down even further to the top 3.

Why am I Telling You This Story?

Because once you have your values identified, and you can communicate them, you too will experience greater satisfaction and fulfillment at work or in your business.

The main takeaway here is to remember to establish your values upfront with your clients and colleagues. It will save you tons of time and unnecessary stress in the long run. Let your values be known, and you’ll attract the attention of like-minded individuals, setting you up for success.

finding your why

Looking for Motivation? Learn How to Find Your Why

By | inspiration, professional speaker | No Comments

And how you can determine the true purpose behind your business

Identify the WHY

There are challenges every day that will feel like you’re taking one step forward and 2 steps back. There will be times when you feel frustrated, discouraged, beat up, unappreciated, and worn out. There are times we all need motivation. 

Most people in the spotlight in business don’t want to talk about the tough times. They want to only focus on the successes and gloss over the hard parts. But, that’s not reality. So, when you hit the tough times, you’ll feel like you’re doing something wrong or aren’t good enough, don’t have the right tools, education, training or whatever they’re trying to sell you.

But, the truth is that failure and setbacks are part of the entrepreneurial journey. They’re part of mine and they are part of yours.

Jen and Will Wedding in Paris

My Why: Life with my husband Will. This photo was taken by photographer Catherine O’Hara in Paris on our wedding day in June 2013.

So, identifying the WHY, is important because it will keep you focused, inspired, and motivated in a deeper way that goes beyond a catchy Instagram quote.

Your WHY goes deep. It gets to the root and will motivate you to keep going when others quit.

Most people haven’t taken the time to really think about the core reasons of Why they do what they do. A lot of people think money drives them but money alone is worthless. Of course you can buy things with money but are you working for things? Do things really drive people?

To get to the core we’re going to go several layers deep into the Why you really do what you do.

Start by answering simply why you do what you do? When you answer, ask why again and repeat six times until you truly find the core.

This exercise is from Frank DeRaffele (www.frankderaffele.com) who spoke at a BNI conference. He told the story of how he was working with a man that seemed to be dissatisfied with his life despite the facts that he had a good paying job, a great family and had a lot of material things. On the surface, he appeared to have it all. But, in reality he was uninspired, unfulfilled and unmotivated.

Frank asked the man to find his why by asking this series of questions:

When asked Why he did what he did he answered “To get money.”

When asked Why again he replied “To be able to afford nice things.”

When asked Why again he replied “To make my wife and kids happy.”

When asked Why again he replied “To be a good father and husband.”

When asked Why again he replied “Because my father was not able to support me.”

 

The core of the reason he worked hard was not to get money it was to be a better father for his kids than his father was to him. Money has been proven not to buy long term happiness. Money can not fuel a fire forever. When you have much more money than you’d ever need, what would be your motivation then? Finding the true reason for his efforts gave him something to stay passionate and committed to.

The same can be said for the Why behind starting a business. The reasons Why you do what you do affects many factors that can contribute to your potential for success.

So what is the real reason you’re in business? What is that inner purpose pushing you? How can you share it with the world and in your marketing?

Why am I Telling You This Story?

To force you to dig deeper so that you’ll have a tool that will keep you motivated when times get tough on your entrepreneurial or business journey.

The main takeaway here is to really dig deep to find WHY you are doing what you’re doing. Because it may be for a different reason than the one you think. By finding your WHY, you will have something to stay motivated about. If you let that be the driving force behind your business, then there is no reason why you should ever doubt what you’re doing.

PUBLIC SPEAKER TIPS

3 Things I Learned at the National Speaker’s Association Conference About Being a Better Public Speaker

By | professional speaker, public speaking | No Comments

Have you ever had that feeling when you walk into a room of new people and think, “YES! These are my people! I am home!”

In July, I was fortunate enough to attend the National Speaker’s Association conference Influence 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona with one of my business partners, Kenny Harper. Wow! What an amazing experience and group of people that are making a difference in the world by inspiring, motivating, sharing with and educating others.

Jen and Kenny at NSA conference

(l) me (r) Kenny Harper

These people are professional speakers because they have turned their life journey into a tool to help other people and lift them up. Their life journey could be a personal success story, a business success story, or even a triumph over tragedy and defeat.

We all have this human experience in common and it is possible to take your life and use it to improve the lives of others. That is what I seek to do. To LOVE with my LIFE.

These people are my people.

In an effort to pay it forward and share some of the concepts I learned at Influence, I present:

The Top 3 Things I Learned at the National Speaker’s Association Conference About Being a Better Public Speaker

  1. Be yourself. – when building a personal brand, it may be tempting to look at the industry leader’s and want to mimic them. DON’T! Be yourself and don’t be afraid to stand out. If that means wearing a red suit coat when everyone else wears blue or having pink hair, be true to yourself.
  2. Share your story. – being in the spotlight doesn’t mean you have to put on a false air of success. The road to entrepreneurial freedom is full of potholes, so share with your audience what you learned in the downtimes.
  3. Focus on the journey. – success doesn’t happen overnight in the public speaking business or in any business, for that matter. Focus on the big picture of why you’re choosing this path and who you are trying to encourage.

If you’re struggling through a tough time right now, whether it is a business setback, a personal hardship, or you’ve just run out of shows to watch on Netflix and are in a grumpy mood, I’d like to give the reminder to focus on what matters and enjoy the ride! You never know how your story will encourage someone else.
