Face to face with another individual, we have the opportunity to see their body language, tone, eye movement, and many other non-verbal queues that clue us into how to best interact.

We now have the opportunity to fill every waking moment with something… anything. Idle time doesn’t exist anymore. Powering down and turning off comes with this looming sense of guilt that “I should be doing something.” As if our sense of self is not just subtly, but wholly tied up in doing.
The philosopher Blaise Pascal said this:
All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone
A deeper part of us knows that being perpetually distracted isn’t right, but also knows what happens in those moments of quiet. That we’ll actually have to face what we’ve been ignoring for so long. That we’ll come face to face with our insecurities, feelings not felt, and dreams we’ve set aside while we plug away being a model citizen and believer in the good ol’ American dream.
Comedian Louis CK says this beautifully in a conversation with Conan O’Brian about why he hates cell phones. He calls it the forever empty… the knowledge that it’s all for nothing and you’re all alone...
To show up fully as leaders, it's essential to know thyself. Knowing your triggers, what trips you up, along with your strengths and being emotionally intelligent is what will create strong and compassionate leaders.
Jenna Phillips Ballard began her career in 2006 as a certified personal trainer and life coach for celebrities and has been featured on Dr. Phil and The Doctors. Halfway through her career, she realized that she had a bigger calling. She’s on a mission to motivate and inspire as many people as possible to become leaders and make this world a better place.
Jenna wants everyone to truly fall in love with themselves, because Self Love will heal this planet.

Her commitment to making a full recovery depended solely on how she thought of herself, and she realized that her purpose is to empower others to break through their limiting beliefs and create an unforgettable life.
In 2016, she cofounded Ascension Leadership Academy with her husband and together they have coached hundreds of people into their greatness. She is also the founder of Unicorn University - an online membership community where women never spend another day being beige, broke, or behaved.
Today we'll dive into leadership, emotional intelligence, overcoming low self-worth, and knowing your triggers.

Blame… oh righteous indignant blame. Pointing the finger is easy, and you know what, the more you practice the more you tend to do it.
There are many subtleties to blame. Versions of blame that are quiet and others that are big and ugly.
There’s those passing moments where you can just toss it away, like it never happened. A driver cuts you off in traffic and you erupt for a moment. It’s the rain’s fault that you can’t do what you wanted to do today. Your partner left all the dirty dishes in the sink before leaving for work and you come home to a mountain of filth. The salt is not in it’s usual spot in the kitchen and you’re sure it was your kid.
Then there’s big ass ugly blame. This shows up and owns you. It finds the override switch and your intense anger, rage, sadness, despair… it’s all someone else’s fault, and in some cases, rightfully so. A physical assault or a legitimate injustice. Or at work, a team member dropped the ball on a project causing you time and money...
