Stacey Olson

Stacey L. Olson is a Leadership and Positive Psychology Certified Coach and has more than 15 years of corporate experience. She works with leaders and professionals at all levels, many of who have the daily juggle of work, kids and rest of life -- all the things -- helping them to create more balance and less stress without sacrificing their performance.

Stacey has also gone through her own transformational change from being close to burning out trying to juggle her own demanding corporate career and family life to now thriving (even in the messiness of everyday life) and figuring out what it really takes to have it all . . . hint, you have to stop doing it all!

You can lead even stronger, perform even better, and enjoy life so much more when you do!

There is a better way

to be successful than what we've been taught or told all our lives.

Being busy, overwhelmed and working long hours, while sacrificing your well-being and family time, is simply not necessary and it is hurting your performance.

It's keeping you from being your best as a leader, as a parent, as a person.

Be At Your Best Roadmap

Your complete step-by-step guide to being at your best, for more balance and less stress.

Stacey Olson, CPPC, Leadership and Positive Psychology Certified Coach

I'm Stacey!

I work with leaders and teams who want to go from being too busy and burning out to creating more balance, well-being and higher levels of performance.

You can work less and be more effective. You can feel happier and be your best at work and home even with all the demands and messiness of everyday life. You can lead by example by taking care of yourself and focusing on what really matters, creating a positive ripple effect for others around you.

This all starts with an understanding that our happiness and well-being fuel performance and success. Yet this is what's often sacrificed to "get the job done". The traditional thinking that if we just work harder, we will be successful and then we'll be happy, is backward and is undermining performance.

Because it is really hard to be your best when you are feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, scattered and pulled in so many directions, or sacrificing your values and what’s important to you.

"Working with Stacey has allowed me to learn how to prioritize my most important work, build boundaries around my workday and since working with her I’ve felt less overwhelmed and more productive in my days."

Jenel

PROJECT LEAD

"When I first started, I was feeling so off-balance with life. Now, I feel so much better! I am far more balanced, I feel calmer, and I am way less overwhelmed in my day. This allows me to see more clearly the things that matter the most and focus my time and energy on those things, and I feel proud of myself and what I have done each day."

Kendra

Focus On The "Yes" Instead Of The "No"

March 18, 20243 min read

My kids have their own style, especially my teenager Carter. There was a period when he was younger where he wore shorts every day for FOUR years!

He didn’t even own a pair of pants during this time (other than ski pants of course with our cold Canadian winters).

Sometimes, when we would get invited for a family photo shoot for a wedding or other occasion, I would hear "Can you dress your kids better?"

My typical response was "no" because we let our kids make these decisions and choose their own sense of style.

Sure, I would at least encourage them to pick something not stained or ripped, but I wouldn’t force them to dress a certain way to please people.

One time, I received a frustrated text response from a family member saying that this is just an example showing that I don't care about other people . . .

And only think about myself. Because I wasn't willing to make the kids dress up for a photo shoot.

Carter happened to see the text and told me . . .

"Mom, you do care about other people – you care about me and what I want."

Exactly! <insert a sigh of relief>

Ideally, when you say "no" to something or someone it’s so that you can say "yes" to something else that is more important to you.

Whether it’s saying yes to your boundaries, your important work . . . or your family values.

This key perspective shift, along with practical tools and so much more is what I teach in my brand new masterclass called The Confident "No".

As you become better with learning to say no, there might be frustration from other people.

Because you’re having an effect on what’s important to THEM. So don't be surprised!

But there is a way that you can communicate a "no" in a way that maintains your relationship and without the guilt.

You see this challenge in your work especially.

You might believe that you have to say "yes" to all the demands and expectations at work to keep everyone happy and perform at a high level.

Even if it means sacrificing your personal time or left feeling overwhelmed and spread thin.

You don’t want to let anyone down, worry about being seen as selfish or not being a team player if you make your own time a priority, or you might not want to deal with conflict.

So you avoid saying "no".

But as hard as it can be to say "no", failing to do so can cause you to overcommit, be out of alignment with your values or miss out on something far more important.

So be more intentional on what you say yes and no to . . . and then have the courage to follow through.

Even if someone might not like it ;-).

Want some help to say "no" and without the guilt?

I created a brand new 45-minute masterclass called The Confident “No”.

I will not only teach you how to say no with more confidence and ease . . .

When you sign up you will also receive a tool kit PDF that has 20+ prompts, an email template to personalize and more, as well as an opportunity to attend a live Q&A session with me later on.
