Welcome to Season Four of Mojo Mondays Bootcamp! This season we are going deep on the transformative power of storytelling. Over the next six episodes, we’re going to provide the inspiration, tools, and structure, to help you craft your 2022 story.
Our first guest of the season has quite the story to tell – Shalini Govil-Pai candidly shares the choices and pivots she has made throughout her impressive career that ultimately led her to becoming the VP and GM of TV @ Google.
We also talk about how important it is for people to find their voices at work and she shares her experience of how she found hers.
Here are my top three takeaways from our conversation:
Show your passion. The job market is incredibly unpredictable at the moment, for both employers and potential candidates. Shalini’s advice? No matter which side of the table you’re on – show your passion. It’s the true differentiator and secret sauce that enables people to break down barriers in their way.
Stay relevant. Shalini’s career journey is a testament to her commitment to curiosity and lifelong learning. Remember, child’s play today is the future of tomorrow.
Speak up. Finding your voice at work is paramount. Shalini candidly discusses the impact of finding her voice, and learning how to use it had on her career trajectory.
Throughout the season, I will wrap up each episode with a question or exercise to help you reflect on and make progress toward your headlines to write your 2022 story!
To help you bring this to life, I’ve created the “Create Your 2022 Story” reflection journal for you to brainstorm and plan your next steps. You can download it at i2Leadership.com/mystory
