24: Loss and Resilience with Brigette Lumpkins

Resilience is very far from being numb. It means you feel, experience, fail, and get hurt, but still keep on going. You attack while running away. It is having tolerance for your negative emotions and going on to make art with the broken pieces of your heart. 

In today’s episode, Kathleen is joined by Brigette Lumpkins, a strategist, advisor, business developer, and writer with experience in professional services and financial services. Brigette is passionate about contributing to a more equitable business environment and society. Her resilience story is one that’s worth listening to, especially because she is outspoken and lives life out loud. 

Tune in as Kathleen and Brigette speak about:

  • The everyday fight to keep her job as a Black woman and how she preserves her mental health 
  • Brigette’s series of losses that felt like a chase by a lion
  • Enlightenment on how to reset after a loss
  • How to develop the capacity to manage traumas you experience 
  • Why it is okay to not reach out for toxic support
  • How to effectively support those who are grieving 

… and so much more!

Life is too short to be unhappy at work.

But fear shows up and stops you from even allowing yourself to make a change.

Fear of disappointment. “I’ll apply for the dream job and I won’t get it”

Fear of failure. “There’s so much on the line” and “I’ll get overwhelmed and won’t be able to do it”.

That’s when your brain gives you all the reasons why you can’t even consider what your dream job and life could look like.

Manage Your Fear will show you how to move past your fear so you can actually get started on exploring the possibilities available to you.
