What a powerful episoode!  Dr. Khalek Kirkland, Principal of THE Boys Prep in the Bronx, NY, is ON FIRE, as he talks everything from the power of connection to several ways to tap into our Black and Brown boy scholars differently and intently within the educational arena.  During conversations, we delve into how to humble thyself to live another day, respecting your mother, setting expectations and holding yourself accountable, with ownership and courage by your side.  He shares The SARAH Model of receiving constructive feedback and  I share 4 considerations of how to master your F.A.T.E.  You don't want to miss it! The title of today's episode is a quote pulled from the poem, Invictus, by William Earnest Henley, written in 1875, where, after a leg amputation and many surgery interventions on the other, he wrote this powerful piece on navigating adversity and coming out on the other side, despite the darkness that you may or may not experience within your circumstance.

"Dear Meghan" is not only the title of my powerful poem that I share at minute 15.59, but it is also a celebration of one of the Power Women that I am calling out as a woman making history as we speak, specifically for walking into fear with courage by her side.  How often do we struggle to do that? Lemmie ask you this. How often do you truly pause and "see" those around you for who they are and what they are bringing to the table? How often do you acknowledge the hurt that you and others may be holding on to? How often do we gift folks the flowers they deserve in this moment? This episode is a celebration and thank you to the women everywhere who are making history and standing in all of their power. Listen in and grab a few things to shift differently. In this episode,  you'll grab a bit of COACHING, where I gift you 5 considerations to climb out of the B.O.X.E.S. that we are oftentimes place ourselves within, particularly as women, either by choice or by societal norms of expectations that threaten to bound us to the complacency of moments past.  Whether Power Women like Cori Bush, Gitanjili Rao, Stacy Abrams, Kamala Harris or YOUSELF, here is a reminder that you are greatness where you stand in this very moment. If you know a power woman to send this episode to for motivation, inspiration, affirmation and renewed action, please do not hesitate.  You leave with the affirmation that you are making history today so make it count.   The Episode Rundown Welcome (minute 0.14) Affirmation from lolitawalker.com/shop (minute 0.42) is "I am the history that is currently being made."

"Communication is a "how" we achieve great things in life.  It is not an end in itself."  These are the words from Damon Jones, a kid from Detroit and Chief Communications Officer for Procter & Gamble, the world's largest consumer packaged goods company...to name a few.  Have you ever had a conversation and wondered...hmmmm, how did we end up here?  I know I have.  Damon and I talk everything from his excitement of opening, Nostalgia, a Black-owned wine and jazz lounge in Downtown Cincinnati during a pandemic, to communications in and outside of the corporate space, to even strategies that will help you avoid communication entanglements, whether now or years to come.  Through a few laughs, pointed and transparent dialogue, and my "come as you are" round of questions, we jumped #allin.  You don't want to miss this three-layered, power-episode of Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations!

There are moments in your life that simply take your breath away..in a good typa way!  This is one of them. Imagine being still while 52 others gift you feedback or share tidbits to you, about you.  Imagine their words being intertwined into the story that you are simultaneously telling of yourself, through a powerful interview, conducted by a close friend. Sounds uncomfortable right?    Imagine pointed questions, some of which make you feel vulnerable & others that have you talk aloud of your wins.  It’s my true journey to 43 years old and I am sharing the ups, downs, twists, and turns.  It was during these moments that I finally felt what Grandma Bea meant when she said, " you must find a way to smell your roses while you are here on this earth."  I must say that I am soooo grateful for each of you!   In this episode, we talk fears, tears, my lowest moments, highest pinnacles, barriers still before me, how I've coped with grief and of course, I made a bit of time to celebrate wins in the midst of it all.  This episode turns the tables, in this unconventional year of 2020, for my 43rd birthday, where I'm being interviewed instead of being the interviewer. AHHHHH!! Are you ready? I sure am.   Confession: Recording and editing this eqpisode was such an emotional and fulfilling experience. Originally intended to feature clips of 43 listeners to help me celebrate 43 years of life, I included 52 of you, who left me the most amazing, heartfelt, & genuine messages! THANK YOU for taking the time. It means sooo much for so many reasons.   Here are 52 minutes for 52 folks & an interview-style story.  I LOVE IT!  and guarantee there are still nuggets for you to grab and apply to your everyday + times when you will grab a few laughs as well.   Thanks for being a part of my journey. I appreciate you, Lolita

Chef Keesha O'Galdez shares how adversity helped find her purpose.  When two Simmons Graduate School of Management grads get together, we have some good ole-fashioned conversations.  Today, we are having a bit of fun and leaving you with a few nuggets and experiences that you may be able to relate to.  From losing a job to moving to a new city, to hearbreak, then leaping into your purpose, we talk it all!  There's even an aha that stuck out, as I travelled down memory lane, to my Simmons days.  It had me giving a shout out to Dr. Stacy Blake-Beard, whose leadership course helped me find aspects of my inner voice that were simply waiting to be unleashed. You wouldn't know it now, but Chef Keesha didn't initially know that gifting people joy through her cooking was her purpose. It was through adversity that she discovered that .. this is it!  The thing is .... most of us are no different. Have you conqured adversity in your life?  Hmmmmm. I am sure the answer is absolutely.  If I were to ask you how you define purpose, what would you say?  Do you believe that you have discovered YOUR purpose? It’s not uncommon for the answer to the latter question to be "not really." Just know that you are not alone. On this episode, I’ll share four considerations when traveling your path that may be plagued with adversity, we'll have a few laughs & celebrate a few wins!The affirmation, from Walker & Walker Enterprises, that kicks off this episode is " I am choiceful in creating the footprints on my journey."  We will challenge that today.  You can grab your 40-card affirmation deck at https://www.lolitawalker.com/shop.  We start our intro (minute 1:14) and hear from our sponsor, Southern Elegance Candle Company (with a special promo code specifically for listeners of the Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations podcast (minute 4:38).  We quickly jump into our first layer of coaching (minute 5:42), where I gift you soul work that takes you on a path of adversity with breadcrumbs and a light hahah #imaginethat.  We, then, celebrate cocktails (minute 18:27) with chers to you and all of your greatness!  And finally we end with a great conversations (minute 23:14) with Chef Keesha and I, who then drop some fire nuggets for you to walk away with.

How often do we allow our limiting beliefs and those crazy negative talks in our head shut us down and make a u-turn on our journey's? How often do we sit in the comfort of complacency because it is easiest and most familiar to us? Well, in episode #10, I'm gifting you a pause and taking you through how to write your own "Journey Story."  You are invited to listen in...and then meet me on the virtual dance floor because....I'm celebrating my #smallwin of hitting 10 podcast episodes AND 1K listens for a single episode....yep! If you don't celebrate, who will? I'll see you there!   Whether a person, a circumstance, or a situation, we are not defined by either. This episode is a reminder from me to you!  It is a reminder that your journey is yours alone and.....the best part about it is that you have the authority to write it, make a u-turn, should you choose, own it, and then you also hold the permission slips to give only to those who you deem worth to help you walk, run, or climb your journey....YOUR WAY!  Today, we start the process of writing you journey!  Are you ready? In this episode's coaching, the soul-work is mapping a path that has one or a few junctions along the journey, then identifying and facing fear head on.  I use Stop 1 in my book, The Intersection of You & Change (https://www.lolitawalker.com/the-book), pages 12 and 13) as a reference for consideration in framing your thoughs around your journey.  In cocktails, we give a cheers to our small wins and the nuggets that you pulled away and then in conversations, I answer some questions that you have sent in.  Sidenote:  Y'all are HILARIOUS!!!! Do I write all of the exercises and really do them with you?  What has been the toughest part of my business journey? Hmmm, they are good questions, but y'all really keep me in stitches.  I think I laughed most of the episode. The affirmation that kicks us off is I am grounded in my values and principles and will only shift to soar further and farther along my journey.  I welcome each of you (minute 1:45), gift a bit of coaching (minute 3:43) and soul-work (minute 9:50), celebrate your takeaways and highlight the greatness you are during cocktails (minute 24:26) then conversations (minute 26:05) , which is where I answer a few of your questions, laugh a bit, and challenge you to answer them as well.

My first male guest, Mario Scott  is joining us at the kitchen table to talk all-things leadership.  A leadership expert working with executives and teams to lead more efficiently and effectively, he leaves us with a few laughs and take-aways on how we can begin to lead differently - from the inside out.   How do you define leadership?  Would you say that your leadership is untapped?  Are you leading yourself the same way you are leading those who are following you?  Hmmmm!  This episode is packed with nuggets that you can implement NOW, whether leading at work, home, or life.  From me gifting 4 strategies to climb, what I call, the L.E.A.D. ladder, to Mario adding on the notion of leading from the inside out, we talk redefining leadership, the idea of proving yourself as a leader, assessing how you are showing up for the leader within you, for your clients, and even how your leader at work/school is showing up...hmmmmm.  We even talk leadership at home and recognizing the balance that some women must still make when it comes to leadership.  This is a no-miss episode that you will want to grab you CC&C journal for, forward to a friend, and assess how you are showing up! The affirmation leading this episode is I am in touch with my thoughts and mindful of my actions.  This episode will challenge you with the question, Are You? I welcome each of you (minute 1:00), gift a bit of coaching (minute 4:05) and soul-work (minute 5:23), celebrate your takeaways and highlight the greatness you are during cocktails (minute 12:08) then invite Mario to conversations (minute 13:49) with a rich conversation on all-things leadership!  It's an episode you don't want to miss.  Grab your CC&C journal and #letsgo.  **Don't forget to subscribe to Coaching, Cocktails, & Conversations and be sure to leave a glowing, 5-star review, IF it resonated with you!** Links referenced during the episode: The 5 Dysfunctions of a Team (the book), Lolita's L.E.A.D.
