When was the last time you did something for yourself? With so many things on our checklist each day, many of us are guilty of getting lost in the day-to-day activities and stresses of the external world.

We neglect the most important thing: connecting with ourselves.

But here’s the truth.

Whether you are a CEO or a stay-at-home parent, you can’t connect to anyone else in inspiring ways until you connect with yourself in honest ways. Connection heals our wounds, awakens our souls, and invites us into our most authentic, courageous, and honest selves.

In this episode, my guest, Karen Hardwick, executive leadership coach shares her powerful practices to stay connected to your feelings, sense of self, and journey. So you can be connected to others both at home, and as a leader.
