If you’ve been feeling like you’re going through the motions or you’re feeling stuck in the current chapter of your life, this is a must-listen episode.  Niti Nadarajah - who was named LinkedIn Top Voice for 2022 on Gender Equity - joins Arivee on the podcast today.  Niti is a coach, freelance general counsel and DEI consultant and advocate with a passion for authentic and inclusive leadership. She advocates for a range of issues including gender and racial equity, and through her business, Coaching by Niti, helps to empower women who are feeling stuck in their careers to get unstuck by connecting them to their inner compass. She also works with Grace Papers, coaching parents through the transitions to and from parental leave and back to work, from an empowered lens in the face of entrenched biases and prejudices, and coaches lawyers through her work with Coaching Advocates.

Niti is a certified NLP practitioner, a founding member and DEI Ambassador at Human Leaders and so much more.  She’s the mother to two beautiful little munchkins who fill her life with joy. In her spare time, Niti can be found reading anything and everything, doing savasana, traveling to far-flung places, enjoying good food and wine and dancing!

In this episode, Niti shares her story and we dig into the work she does with women. We talk through one of the main obstacles of fear (fear of uncertainty, fear of not being financially secure, fear of things not working out the way you’d like, fear of judgment and discomfort).  We talk about the weight of expectations and the importance of connecting (and how to connect) with your unique inner compass to guide you moving forward.
