[Coaching] Are They Really Judging You?

When No One But You is Judging You

Could anyone possibly meet the expectations you have for yourself?

Many of the women I coach have such high expectations for themselves. They sacrifice health and happiness to meet those expectations.

Sometimes the driver is the thought that others are expecting a lot from you. If you looked closely, is that true? Are others watching you and expecting you to overdeliver all the time?

Or are you assigning them those judgments because in reality you’re judging yourself.

I had a fantastic conversation with Andrea about judging yourself, trying to meet your own unrealistic expectations, delegating, having healthy boundaries, and asking for help.

If you feel like you’re doing too much for everyone else, and not getting enough time for you, or for the people and things that are also important to you, listen in.


If you are new to the Women Taking the Lead podcast…hello and welcome!

I’m Jodi Flynn. I’m an executive leadership coach, speaker, and author. I am the current President of the Board for The Maine Women’s Conference. I have the privilege and joy to work with women leaders to hone the skills and the mindset that allow them to grow into and then thrive in Senior Leadership. My specialization is working with women who are still stabilizing after their last promotion and those who want to be ready for the next one.

It is my belief that for more women to hold positions of senior leadership, there are changes at the individual and organizational level that need to occur. Not only do women need to be trained and coached on how to operate at these levels of leadership. Organizations need to change their paradigm of how the work gets done. And what supports are in place for leaders to do their job.
