33: What Is Success?
Success – we all want it. But what, exactly, does it mean? Career coach Kathy Caprino and mindful leadership coach Emily Bennington are my guests on this show. Both women are authors, and both have corporate careers behind them. Kathy and I discuss why some of us seem to expect success to come almost instantly when we launch a new project or entrepreneurial venture – and what the reality of such a launch entails. Emily talks about her entry into the work world as a wildly ambitious twenty-something set on corporate domination. She wanted the title, the promotion, the money. What she hadn't bargained on was just how stressful she would find her ascent. After years of striving she had a change of heart, and changed her definition of success.
