Today on Extraordinary Women Radio, I am happy to introduce you to Hilary Blair, the CEO and Co-founder of ARTiculate: Real&Clear.
Human connection can be awkward and exhausting. Hilary shows how true connection is worth navigating the mess. She recently was on the TedX Cherry Creek Stage with her talk Stereotypes vs Archetypes.
In this Episode:
- Archetypes: Understanding how they shape who we are and how they guide the choices, life, and work we make.
- Stereotype and archetype – Seeing from archetypal lens vs. stereotypical lens
- Hilary’s passion around freeing voices and just really embracing the messiness that comes through us.
- Controlling our voice and learning to adjust
- How Hilary will bring her messiness into preparing for her talk on the TEDx stage
- An analogy of a soccer player in regards to creativity in rules and boundaries.
