Key Points Mentioned

  • #ShakeTheShame, and challenge yourself to do better.
  • Take time every day to ask yourself, “What did you do today that was pretty awesome, how you can make that even more awesome tomorrow?”
  • Allow yourself to be taken to the next level with self-reflection #UnapologeticPause
  • I.V.O.T. is an acronym for personal investment through the viable opportunities to transition
  • Our perception and attitude will determine if our transition that we are moving to is painful or transformational, it will determine if we are victim or victor in our situations.
  • It’s time to #ShakeTheShame and know who you are, then all the directions to success will make sense for you
  • For every strength, there is a polarity, a weakness, which is your shadow, this shadow can cost us our greatness if we are not aware of it.
  • The sum of all the 7 archetypes in #TheLeadershipGap situational, we are all of the archetypes and it gives us the opportunity to evolve in every aspect of our lives.

The moment Lolly Daskal had to break expectations was when…. She boldly transitioned the book idea that her agent and various publishing houses really liked into what she does everyday, which is teaching how to close your #LeadershipGap

Lolly Daskal’s Unapologetic Pause includes…. Reading a book every day from 4:30am- 6:30am, this gives her the chance to learn, grow, and evolve and have something new to share with her clients every day. Lolly also takes time to recognize all that she is grateful for, this leads to more abundance for her.

A little Gentle Honesty…. You have a choice; recognize your gap or stand in your greatness
