Jackie Krawczak – WRMB020 – From Struggle To Success

Jackie Krawczak is the President of leadership training and consulting firm, Jackie Krawczak, LLC, and the President/CEO of the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce.

Listen in as Jackie discusses the following:

*ATHENA leadership principle "Learn Constantly" from the book Becoming Athena: Eight Principles of Enlightened Leadership by ATHENA International Founder Martha Mertz

(Also she gave us a bonus leadership principle as well as she tackled "Live Authentically")

*Dealt with mental health issues - severe clinical depression and bulimia.

*You can overcome struggles in your life and still be successful and happy.

*You shouldn't feel embarrassment over mental health issues.

*She helped people that have similar struggles because she had the courage to share her story.

*Advice to heal:

1. Let people care about you.

2. Be kind to yourself.

3. Don't be afraid - she was afraid to give up her eating disorder and depression because she had been successful in spite of them but in a strange way she gave those two disorders misplaced credit for her success.

*What are you willing to give up to get something you never had?

*Her purpose is to help others - either one on one or with organizations to motivate and inspire them to get past hurdles to get to what is greater for them.

*Talks about what holds individuals and organizations back.

*Just because you have a title it doesn't mean you are a good leader - you really have to learn to lead, inspire and motivate.

*Why her leadership style is now more real.

*How she develops women leaders - and why women need different things than men in leadership.

*Her perspective on leadership and entrepreneurship as a someone that is both an employee and an entrepreneur herself.

*How to best manage your time and delegate.

*Why being your authentic self is so important.
