Katie: Hi there, and welcome to the Wellness Mama Podcast. I’m Katie from wellnessmama.com. And at present, we’re speaking about girls as thought leaders, and possibly not in the best way you could be pondering. I’m right here with Denise Brosseau, who’s a serial entrepreneur who has developed a novel space of experience. She is a thought chief across the space of thought management. She’s written a e book on this referred to as “Able to be a Thought Chief?,” and she or he teaches programs on that. And the explanation I needed to have her right here at present is as a result of I’ve all the time mentioned that I feel girls, and particularly mothers, have a ton of energy and really creating change on a small, and finally, a really massive scale. And so, we’re gonna discuss by way of that at present, and the way she works with folks to create change. I feel typically after we hear the phrase thought chief we consider big-time thought leaders just like the Dalai Lama, and Gandhi, or and so on., after I assume thought management can occur in our personal households. It might occur in our personal communities. And I’ve seen this in examples of individuals creating change on a societal and even a state stage by way of small grassroots actions. And the individuals who began these actually simply having ripple results of their communities. So at present, we discuss all about this. And about how we as mother and father might be thought leaders in our personal households and the way we as folks might be thought leaders in our personal communities. So with that allow’s leap in. Denise, welcome. Thanks for being right here.

Denise: I’m joyful to be right here, Katie.

Katie: I’m excited to speak with you at present as a result of I feel it is a actually vital matter and one which’s gonna be actually enjoyable to speak about in relation to our viewers who’s listening at present. However I all the time love to begin by listening to a little bit little bit of the background and discovering out how you bought into this world and received to this place of doing what you do.

Denise: I’ve had a really eclectic profession. I used to be not a kind of who awoke after seventh grade and knew what I needed to be after I grew up. So I began my profession within the tech business, and did plenty of software program growth over a few years, first in advertising and marketing after which product growth after which in enterprise growth. Labored at some small firms and massive firms. And in the midst of that I took a little bit break to go to enterprise faculty. And there I met a lady who made a big effect on my profession as she approached me each throughout faculty and after faculty to speak a couple of venture she was engaged on, on why had been girls not getting any enterprise capital funding? And it was actually one thing I hadn’t recognized a lot about. I’d achieved my very own enterprise earlier than enterprise faculty, however wasn’t one the place I wanted enterprise.

And so after we each graduated, we began a brand new initiative within the Bay Space, through which we had been specializing in how can we assist girls perceive the worth of enterprise capital? Why it mattered? And why scaling a enterprise was vital and methods to do it. So we began within the Bay Space, with the primary chapter of our group and over the following variety of years. First, I made it part-time after which I made it full-time and grew it to seven cities across the nation, and in addition helped begin the primary Enterprise Capital Convention springboard for ladies entrepreneurs. And each of these initiatives had been such an enormous endeavor and such an exquisite expertise for me to essentially have an effect on serving to girls scale their companies.

And so, quick ahead a couple of years later after I left my nonprofit, each of these organizations nonetheless proceed at present below different management. However I received a cellphone name from a good friend in the future and she or he mentioned, “You realize, Denise, the way you turned that thought chief in Ladies’s Entrepreneurship.” She mentioned, “I wanna try this.” And I bear in mind pondering, “I used to be a thought chief, like actually?” That’s simply not a time period that I’d ever utilized. However over the following few years, I helped her take her profession from being fully invisible in her discipline to testifying in entrance of the U.S. Senate, acknowledged by the White Home, headhunted by the governor to run the same initiative throughout the state. And I acknowledge that the work I’ve achieved in Ladies’s Entrepreneurship, the place I turned this type of unintended thought chief, or actually this spokesperson for this initiative of girls and enterprise turned one thing I might do with others and for others in a extra strategic means. What should you might have a plan? What should you needed to grasp the influence of your concepts and produce these to fruition and implement change in a much wider means, what does it actually take? And so I type of doubled down on that matter and did plenty of analysis, began working with lots of people, wrote a e book, began instructing at Stanford in addition to on-line with LinkedIn Studying. And now that’s type of my space of experience, which is form of not what you’d have ever anticipated. However I’m what folks teasingly name a thought chief about thought management.

Katie: That’s fascinating. And to love, go a little bit deeper on this. Are you able to form of stroll us by way of the distinction between a frontrunner and a thought chief? Like what makes the distinction in that?

Denise: What I take a look at it as, , many individuals assume a thought chief is solely any person who simply begins tweeting their huge concepts. And definitely there’s a small piece of it that’s true. However for me, the distinction between a frontrunner and a thought chief is that leaders are impacting the people who they’ll normally work together with commonly. They both have some oversight over them, so matrix organizations, some reference to these of us of their communities. They see them extra typically or join with them extra typically, whereas thought leaders are people who find themselves making an attempt to compel or enroll or interact folks to take their concepts and carry them past.

So if I affect you, and then you definitely carry my concept to the third particular person, or to an entire neighborhood of individuals, that to me is assumed management. So as a substitute of 1 to many, it’s many to many, how do you scale concepts? How do you trickle concepts out into the world by way of connection factors, as an influencer or by way of your neighborhood networks, by way of your on-line networks, by way of your actions and behaviors in a means that spreads change, spreads concepts? That to me is assumed management.

Katie: Gotcha. Yeah, that is smart, you’re in a position to create a change way more exponentially. And I’ve all the time mentioned it with the “Wellness Mama” platform that I feel mothers particularly are a number of the strongest folks on the planet. As a result of not solely are we elevating the following era, and we have now that direct skill to influence the following era, however we additionally management a lot of the buying energy in our nation, and so many different metrics. And so I’ve all the time mentioned, I feel, like if mothers actually stepped into that we might create unbelievable change inside a really quick time frame. And I do know that possibly mothers aren’t those that folks instantly consider after they consider management and thought management. However I feel they completely needs to be and that is one thing that girls ought to take into consideration, for themselves in our personal households. So from a lady’s perspective on this, what are a few of these first steps that we are able to take, whether or not it’s in our personal households, our personal communities, and so on., towards turning into a thought chief and to creating that constructive change?

Denise: I agree, I couldn’t agree with you extra. I feel it’s mothers and grandmas. I imply, I take into consideration who’re the trusted, revered of us in a neighborhood? It’s moms and grandmothers. And so if we understood the facility of that platform, that belief that we’ve already received, to me that is about belief, thought management is all about belief and the way will we unfold wanted concepts? How will we unfold our experience and our greatest practices and what’s actually working? And I take into consideration the facility of mommy bloggers, that was type of mentioned as a catch-all and even possibly a denigration of moms who got here to the web and but has had exponential influence throughout the final, , 15, 20 years. And so I feel that’s, clearly one first step folks can take is to begin coming to the desk with their concepts the place it’s the written phrase, the place it’s the spoken phrase. It’s the power to take a look at the digital camera and say a message, or whether or not it’s the power to write down your concepts. Each of these are good first steps, however I prefer to go a little bit past that as a result of folks might be intimidated by, “Oh, I’m not fairly prepared for that but.”

So I feel there’s even a few steps earlier than people who assist to inculcate change inside a neighborhood, and the primary one is to essentially be a convener. Once more, mothers have an actual energy to be conveners round an concept. I consider all of the moms, I’ve pals of mine who’ve had kids with some challenges in studying and have needed to deliver collectively a neighborhood of individuals of their neighborhood…of their faculty system, after which typically throughout faculty programs as a way to implement change in how studying is supported and various studying methods and types are supported of their faculty system. For me convening is a very highly effective, you’re those that deliver within the folks to the desk, you’re those setting the agenda that may result in change, and trigger concepts to unfold.

After which I feel a second one is to be what I name an amplifier. So taking your energy of your voice and your platform and your social media to amplify the most effective concepts. Amplify the info in order that we do away with these, the facility of unfavourable info to unfold however as a substitute spreading the right info, the fact-based info, the vital particulars moderately than the gossip, and the sensationalism that always occurs in a neighborhood. So I feel each of these, being an amplifier of the reality and the wanted info by way of e-mail newsletters, by way of connection factors, and everytime you’re assembly with folks. In order that’s a protracted reply, however I feel these are a number of the first methods.

Katie: Acquired it. That is smart. And I really like that phrase convene. And I all the time I’ve talked fairly a bit on right here concerning the significance of neighborhood and I do know we’ve all heard that, , you’re the sum of the 5 folks you spend essentially the most time with. And simply how vital having that group and having neighborhood is for not simply well being however psychological well being and for relationships and for a lot extra. And I’m curious if in case you have any suggestions for folks, particularly as mothers it may be lonely at instances, being residence with children and feeling considerably remoted. Do you may have any suggestions for beginning that strategy of convening or constructing your individual neighborhood and your individual community through which you can begin to unfold these adjustments?

Denise: One of the highly effective ones I’ve seen is utilizing some on-line instruments like an e-mail listing. Like a web-based neighborhood like Mighty Networks to create neighborhood connections or Nextdoor inside our personal communities. So I’ve had many mother pals who’ve began the e-mail listing, the influential e-mail listing of their neighborhood to deliver folks collectively for easy issues. Whether or not it’s exchanging info or whether or not it’s, “Hey, my child outgrew that child stroller, does anyone want one?” So these sorts of adjustments and now that we have now instruments like a Nextdoor, we have now instruments like a Mighty Community, taking it to the following stage, and in addition bringing neighborhood collectively round that loneliness. “Okay, who’s gonna take the child to the…who’s taking the youngsters to the pool? Let’s all go collectively.” Versus all of us stepping into remoted methods or, “Who’s gonna make a run to the grocery retailer this afternoon and might choose issues up?”

I feel on this time proper now after we’re scuffling with world well being challenges, that the significance of these form of e-mail lists can’t be oversold. I imply, one in all my neighbors got here as much as me simply over the weekend, and, , her children care for my cats after I’m out of city. And he or she came to visit and she or he mentioned, “You realize, I don’t know all people within the neighborhood. I’ve been right here 5 years. However what if we had an e-mail listing simply in our complicated that linked folks round provides that we would have, well being provides that we would share?” So I feel the simplicity of a easy e-mail listing with possibly a spreadsheet that’s hooked up to it may be a connection level to, A, assist resolve some preliminary challenges that we would all be dealing with. However secondly, as you mentioned, overcome a few of that loneliness, overcome a few of that feeling of isolation.

Katie: Gotcha. And what about like extending to inside our households, I really feel like mothers are naturally like considerably leaders and definitely thought leaders, inside our personal households and with our youngsters. However are there issues we are able to do to be extra intentional, extra cognizant about this and to instill a few of these qualities in our youngsters as they become older?

Denise: I feel the very first thing that involves thoughts is the sense that we have now the facility to affect by way of the alternatives we make about what we converse about. Will we select to be the one who’s the smart chief, to be the one who’s the sharer of the most effective info? Or are we the one who’s backstabbing, cat combating, no matter these horrible phrases are, that I actually dislike and so most likely shouldn’t even be utilizing however, , are we the one who’s passing alongside the gossip? Or are we passing alongside the cheerleading about one another. The amplifying of what’s taking place in our neighborhood, , mentioning what’s good and what’s constructive and what’s highly effective in our neighborhoods, in our communities, in our households versus all the remainder, which I feel it’s really easy to get down within the spirals. And in addition simply to get down on the spirals of, , spending all our time speaking concerning the visitors and the climate and our newest Netflix present, as a substitute of speaking about concepts and what’s vital. And what must occur and what we ourselves are doing to empower and implement new actions in our neighborhood.

I’ll offer you an instance of a man that I simply assume is so highly effective. I don’t know should you’ve heard this gentleman in LA he calls himself the Renegade Gardener. And he awoke in the future and seemed exterior his door and he mentioned, “You realize, there’s a strip of land exterior my entrance door and I’m gonna plant a backyard there.” And moderately than what I’d do, plant a couple of flowers, he planted actually a backyard, he planted fruit bushes and greens. And the land was really not owned by him it was the town’s land, and he will get this e-mail and it says, “Tear up your backyard, that’s metropolis land, you’ll be able to’t plant there.” And he’s like, “That’s ridiculous.” And so he began a petition in his neighborhood, and he went out and received an entire bunch of individuals engaged in the truth that that land needs to be planted and we don’t should…he lived in East LA. And he mentioned, “There’s no grocery shops right here with recent vegatables and fruits. What if we planted within the areas which are wanted?” And so he took his petition to Metropolis Corridor and he received engaged with of us there. And he received them to reverse, not solely the assertion that…not solely the letter he received, but in addition to show over different land. And over time, began constructing gardens in deserted heaps and out of doors of homeless shelters and locations the place the neighborhood might come collectively to create gardens.

And I feel that initiatives like that begin with any particular person particular person trying round and saying, “What can I do? What must occur and what can I do and who else may additionally care about this?” And I feel mothers completely have the facility to try this. And, in fact, we’re drained. And, in fact, we have now, , 1,000 issues on our to-do listing, however it’s pondering a little bit bit past the day-to-day to-do listing and pondering, what might have a broader influence. And I feel mothers are unbelievably linked by way of their children’ faculties, by way of neighborhood organizations that they could be a part of to deliver collectively these sorts of change.

Katie: I completely agree. And I really like that instance in LA with the gardener. Are there different examples of thought leaders which are doing this? As a result of I feel generally once you hear that time period, you consider, , just like the Dalai Lama’s, or the Gandhi’s, or….

Denise: Sure, precisely you consider any person, you’ll by no means be them, proper. So I’ll take into consideration this woman that I do know in my neighborhood, she was doing a…I feel she did a management program in her neighborhood. And one of many issues that they requested was for her to step ahead and select a venture. And so she and three or 4 folks in her management program created this initiative with a neighborhood faculty to do some tutoring for teenagers who weren’t with the ability to learn and write of their…after they’re 7, 8, 9 years previous, as a result of typically English wasn’t their first language or they weren’t getting any consideration at residence. And he or she did work on the kindergarten stage, needed to work a little bit bit past that with the youngsters who had clearly missed the teachings.

And so she began it with these 4 or 5 folks. After which after the management program was achieved, she continued it. And each probability she received, she would begin talking about it, she would begin speaking to others about it. And he or she herself didn’t have children, however she needed to really feel like she was mattering to the youngsters in her neighborhood. And fairly rapidly, she received folks saying, “Properly, how did you try this? What did it take?” And I feel this will get to the important aspect of chief to thought chief is she wrote it down. She wrote down what it took, she wrote down how she needed to get approval, and the way she created the teachings and the way she introduced it…, what she checked out on the web to purchase books for teenagers. And all the totally different ways in which, , she discovered the sources, no matter it was that it took, she wrote it down.

And I feel the distinction between a frontrunner and a thought chief is that they codify the teachings realized. They write down in a means that they’ll go ahead to others a way that’s working. And so she wrote it down and began nearly as easy, I feel it was only a Google Doc to start with. After which fairly quickly different individuals who began it of their faculties would add issues. And now I don’t know what number of faculties it’s, 9 or 10, within the Bay Space over the previous couple of years. And , it’s small and but every youngster is impacted, that’s an exponential change as a result of it’s their households which are going to be higher off. And their kids sooner or later are gonna be higher off, and our workplaces are gonna be higher as a result of the youngsters are higher educated, and so on., and so on., and so on. I feel we take into consideration every one in all these items as being not sufficient. And but, each change within the globe began with one small initiative.

Katie: I agree. And I’ve seen that in my very own life as nicely, whether or not it’s issues like neighborhood gardens, which I’ve seen girls spearhead, such as you talked about, the one in LA. I’ve seen girls spearhead unbelievable neighborhood tasks like that, or the place I used to dwell, residence start was, for example, not authorized within the state on the time, and there was this neighborhood of girls that fashioned and that we had been in a position to get the legislation modified. And to enhance birthing choices for ladies throughout the state that they really had ripple results into even how girls had been handled in hospitals and start facilities. And so I feel, such as you’ve mentioned a pair instances, girls might be such highly effective instruments on this and particularly after we shift and give attention to the neighborhood and the constructive and the lifting one another up. As a result of I see that and also you most likely see it as nicely within the on-line world, the place it’s simple, as a result of all of us care a lot about our households and our kids, it’s simple to wanna defend our selections. Or I see girls argue about just like the little factors or about issues they may do in another way. And I’ve all the time mentioned if we might unite concerning the issues we have now in frequent, which is that all of us wanna depart the world higher for our kids, and all of us need our kids to have each alternative and to make the neighborhood stronger and higher for them. We can create ripples that fully change our communities and our nation very, in a short time. And so I really like that that is one thing that you just’re really working with folks to do.

Denise: Completely. I bear in mind going to my reunion and like…it was Winter girls’s faculty and I bear in mind going to the reunion. I don’t bear in mind if it was my 5 yr reunion or my 10 yr reunion and there was such an vitality within the area about evaluating and, , type of envying the one that stayed residence with the youngsters versus those who stayed residence with the youngsters envying those who had been working. Or possibly shaming, blaming those who had been doing the opposite, , “Why aren’t you working? Why aren’t you…, you’ve received this nice training?” I don’t know, it’s simply exhausting. If we are able to simply cease with the evaluating and have fun what every one is doing and are available collectively, as you say, round issues that matter. That’s going to be after we take again the globe for ourselves.

And in addition, I’d simply add to it, that moderately than essentially beginning one thing your self, exit and see what’s already taking place. I’m considerably pissed off at my very own self and others who, after I give you a brand new concept, I instantly simply wanna begin a brand new nonprofit or a brand new initiative or new organizations. Like, “Wait a minute, what if there’s already one thing taking place? What if I went and added my vitality to what’s already occurring in my neighborhood moderately than making an attempt to create one thing myself from begin, from scratch,” as a result of as the reality is, there isn’t sufficient sources to go round. And all of us want to return collectively to unravel these world challenges whether or not it’s fixing the necessity for higher training of our youngsters, or fixing the water or the gardens in our neighborhood. We don’t want one other nonprofit essentially, we want extra folks coming collectively and even entering into the following step.

I’ll inform you a key…and possibly to go to one in all my little pet peeves right here is that we are likely to spend hours as mothers making cookies and doing the meals drives and doing the small adjustments. And but girls usually are not taking that very same vitality and drive round a legislative initiative that might really change the…to have the influence in a a lot larger means round regardless of the causes that we’re elevating that cash for it to start with. And what number of instances have I heard pals of mine say, “Properly, yeah. I’m making an attempt to get folks, get girls to donate to a candidate, or become involved in a bond drive, or no matter. And I can’t get anybody to try this.” However they’re all very happy to spend 2 hours making cupcakes or 2 hours working a bake sale, which is gonna elevate $100 versus this bond measure, which goes to boost $5 million. So I feel it’s additionally vital to take that twist in our pondering and perceive that, sure, it’s scary, and it isn’t one thing you’ve achieved earlier than. And it’s the first time in your neighborhood that anyone could have taken one thing on. However that doesn’t imply it’s inconceivable. And taking the identical vitality and drive that we do on the small issues to the massive issues that may have a way more world influence. That to me is the place we additionally wish to be focusing our time and vitality. Does that make sense?

Katie: That does make sense. And I’m additionally a giant fan such as you mentioned I feel…like I discussed it a little bit bit earlier than, however I feel we frequently underestimate our skill to truly have an effect on change inside our personal communities. And I actually assume that’s really the simplest place we are able to begin change after which develop from there. And I feel girls particularly are extremely highly effective instruments for neighborhood change. And also you’re proper, we are likely to default to the massive gross sales or the volunteering and stuff. And ladies are nice for that, girls step in when there’s a necessity, and so they assist that. But when we simply seemed a little bit bit larger, it’s not that we have now to go grand scale or run for political workplace or do one thing nationwide, doing one thing in our personal neighborhood, we even have the facility to create and impact that change on our personal, particularly after we unite. So I really like that concept. And I feel you’re proper, we’re dealing with plenty of comparatively huge issues within the subsequent couple of a long time. And I feel we have now a novel place to have the ability to begin to change that.

Denise: Completely. And my invitation is to ask round, there normally is any person who has had a few of that experience in your neighborhood should you ask otherwise you go searching. And secondly is to don’t simply give attention to mothers, I feel that is…it’s a neighborhood problem normally that we’re dealing with. And by coming along with working of us who usually are not mothers or dads or people who find themselves in locations of energy. So I served for eight years on the Housing and Human Issues Committee in my city, and it was just because I awoke in the future and realized I had a really high quality training from a number of the prime faculties within the nation. And I had a tech job with an excellent wage and I might barely, barely afford to have a apartment in my neighborhood. And I assumed, “Okay, I assumed that this was what Silicon Valley was designed for was folks like me with an excellent training and an excellent job. And if I can’t afford to dwell right here, how on the planet are different folks doing this?” And so I used to be simply indignant about it and confused and desirous to make a distinction in that. And so came upon that you may be appointed to serve on the Housing Committee in your city and I by no means even knew there was such a factor. I feel I complained as soon as too many instances and other people mentioned, “Why don’t you go do one thing about it?” Which is form of my invitation to others, cease complaining, go do one thing about it.

And so I served on the Housing Committee and I in my eight years there as a chair for a number of of these years and we constructed plenty of housing. And it wasn’t good, I realized rather a lot, I actually didn’t do the whole lot completely, and I needed to generally vote towards people who I cared about who needed no extra constructing in our neighborhoods, and needed no extra housing and needed…, so the nimbyism was positively a few of my very own pals who had been on the opposite facet of me at sure key votes. And I didn’t all the time win. My votes weren’t all the time the fitting…weren’t all the time accepted, in fact, both for my neighborhood. However I look now I drive downtown and I see all this nice housing and it’s proper close to transportation, and it’s…a few of it’s reasonably priced due to our initiatives. And I simply assume that that issues to me greater than any time I spend in my neighborhood, anything I’ve achieved in my neighborhood, was that, getting engaged and doing my greatest to be taught what I might and get along with others to make an influence on one thing that actually mattered.

Katie: Acquired it.

A query I prefer to ask towards the tip of interviews that’s a little bit bit associated, but it surely could be on a wholly totally different topic. Is that if there’s a e book or numerous books which have had a very dramatic influence in your life. And in that case, what are they and why?
