Nikki Lewallen, CEO of Rainmakers, chats with host Julie Petr about the impact of mentorship, leadership, and using failure as an opportunity for growth.

 

Nikki's Advice to a First Time Leader

  • Know that you don't know everything
  • Be open to asking for help
  • People want transparency and authenticity
  • Share your "why" with people

 

3 Character Traits for Success

  • Confidence
  • Generosity - service above self
  • Compassion - understand where other people are coming from 

 

Suggestions for Boosting Your Confidence

  • Practice whatever it is that causes you to question your abilities
  • Ask for both positive feedback and opportunities for growth in areas where you feel less confident
  • Create a "Feel Good File" to revisit e-mails, cards, and praise you've received in the past when you're feeling not so confident in your abilities

 

Balancing Work and Home Life

  • Calendar Everything!
  • Completely disconnect from work when you are at home
  • Set boundaries

 

The Phrase Nikki Lives by

 "Love What You Do"
