— What Has My Attention
We’re continuing the Women in Strong Leadership series with Lisa Pachence, Audrey Holst, and Patty Block. Today they’re talking about breakdowns and breakthroughs.
The last time we got together was on episode 46 released on February 22nd, 2022 - we titled it “Service and Success - How To Have Both.”
Introductions, cringe-worthy puns, Audrey’s breakthrough, you can’t plan for breakthroughs, breakthroughs and vulnerabilities, being consistent with the process, predictable breakthroughs, the breakthrough in the industry, the difference between breakthroughs and change, shifting of habits, transformation is boring, breakthrough insights and results, the habit of change that creates the breakthrough, the difference between problems and symptoms, trust, how to know you’re going in the right direction, states of breakdowns, redefining the meaning of the breakdown, is a breakdown and breakthrough the same thing viewed through a different lens, in conversation - taking up too much space, celebrating wins, we don’t need a hobby to find joy, the joy of women coming together, the differences between coaching consulting and mentoring.
Next time: Step Into Your Power
In 2006, Patty founded The Block Group to empower women business owners who are experts in their fields.
As their trusted advisor, she brings a unique perspective, having experienced and solved many of the same complex issues women face, as leaders, as moms, daughters and sisters.
62% of women rely on their businesses for their primary income, yet 88% of these businesses generate less than $100,000 in annual revenue.
Having seen the same struggles time and again, Patty teaches women how to shift their mindset and build their confidence to generate more revenue with less stress by reimagining pricing and selling.
She’s a firm believer that, when women earn more, everyone around them benefits - their staff, their family and their community.
Her life journey--the good and the bad--allows her to course-correct clients by leading and advising with compassion, empathy and quiet resolve.
The result is a partnership of unbiased accountability, helping women position their companies--financially, operationally, technologically--for game-changing results.
Patty raised three fantastic kids, all of whom have launched their careers and also work in Patty’s company (she essentially raised her own workforce!)
Clients often refer to Patty as their “business therapist” and “secret weapon.”
By establishing long-term relationships and serving as a strategic sounding board, clients experience direct benefits to create real and lasting change, turning roadblocks into building blocks.
