This interview with Mary Tess Rooney is the reminder that we all need that our joy and happiness matter at least as much as what other people expect of us. Mary Tess is the author of Heart Value, a book that helps us ensure we are making career and life decisions from the intersection of the value we offer the world that also lights us up.
What Mary Tess describes as Heart Value is very close to what I call Great Work, which is why it was such an easy decision to invite her to the podcast. And I’m very glad I did! Mary Tess is no pie-in-the-sky Pollyanna. She urges us to acknowledge that it can be challenging to speak up and share our heart value with the world, and she encourages us to be strategic and honest about what’s possible right now and what might need some time to unfold. In both cases, she emphasizes that we are not rushing towards something better, but instead, we are building a habit of honoring our heart value.
Join us as we discuss:
· Why the people we work with need to see us in ways that matter to us instead of ways that matter to them.
· How to let our heart value guide our practical actions and tactical choices, and how that is the surest way to create a life we love.
· Why we need to impact our careers by sharing what lights us up and asking for the opportunity to do more of that
· How to cherish your EPIC adventure, even when things do not go as planned
