#61: YOU Shaped Careers with Marjolijn Flug

In this episode, we speak to Marjolijn Flug, a career and allyship coach who firmly believes that everyone deserves that YOU-shaped space in the world where they can truly be themselves, feel valued and welcome. People who have created that space for themselves can also pay it forward and more easily create more space for others, becoming stronger allies to diversity, equity and inclusion.

Marjolijn has an extensive background in HR and Communications. She often coaches internationals and multi-passionates (multi-potentialities). That said, she’s really interested in every individual’s personal story.

03:57 What is a YOU shaped career, and how will it help you?

05:43 The importance of employees having side hustles and others focus other than their main careers.

10:16 We explore the positive impact of employers embracing all of the skills each person can bring to the table in  their roles

10:31 When leaders do not feel free to be themselves, it can harm Inclusion initiatives and their ability to foster positive relationships.

14:55 How increasing awareness about others can make all the difference in creating safe spaces for everyone to do their best work.

20:47 What gets in the way of female leaders being authentic and feeling comfortable to be themselves?

23:33 How imposter syndrome is normal, as anyone willing to step up and be themselves professionally will always experience it, as it contradicts the idea of what you should be.

27:34 How making a profit while sacrificing employees' mental and physical health is just not acceptable anymore.

33:39 Nowadays, people are unwilling to put up with the terrible and toxic working conditions anymore and are willing to resign if necessary.

35:44 How there is enough fear already regarding diversity and Inclusion, so supporting leaders instead of blaming them is the way forward.

36:45 The power of allowing yourself the freedom to say, "I don't know, and I have changed my mind".

40:06 The impact of allowing yourself to feel vulnerable and how it helps you be more honest and transparent.

43:06 How people stepping into management roles forget to be human and often lack key leadership skills.

46:01 Compnaies often don't know they have all the answers to improve their culture; They neglect to listen to their employees and struggle to retain high talent.
