297 - Overcoming Limiting Beliefs to Pursue Your Dreams (Part II) with Guillaume Wiatr

Season 3, Ep. 297

Welcome back for Part II of The No Labels, No Limits podcast featuring Guillaume Wiatr. If you tuned in last week, you know that Guillaume holds a variety of roles including author, business owner, lecturer, instructor, and strategist. He guides CEOs, founders, and leadership teams of professional services firms to gain focus and traction so they build a successful business that they also love.

We encourage you to go back and listen to Part I if you haven't already had the pleasure. Today, we give you Part II of Guillaume's interview where he shares how to build a narrative that resonates with others. He says, "Making the connections between what you say and how you walk or talk, that's how you start building a narrative." He also explains how you can shape your narrative by being selective in the words you use. Listen in and gain some inspiration to help you overcome your current hurdles and perhaps take away a few nuggets of wisdom that you can apply in your life.

I asked a few inquisitive questions like:

1.  What do you mean when you say, "People will pay for a story, but people will die for a narrative."

2.  When you began, how were you getting “story-telling wrong?”

3.  What are the five powers of a strategic narrative?

Guillaume leaves us with this thought, "98% of the work [of a narrative] is how you execute on it, how you apply it, how you hold yourself accountable and how you keep your team aligned."

While men messing up, failing, being rejected, etc - and getting back on their feet - has been modeled and normalized, I don't think enough women have spoken about how we have 1) Failed and 2) Pivoted from these failures."Learn more and connect with Alice here: Free template:
