S5 EP 3: Teresa Vozza – Eradicate Burnout From the Inside Out






Embodied self-agency and integrated: leading our lives and leadership from deep congruence, our values are played out in our actions, self-agency is when we’re in full command of our voice – desires, thoughts and actions come from authenticity and resonance, and integrated is when personal and professional are one person.



In 2015, I was working as a chief Human Resources officer for a Fortune 500 company. I had just had a promotion and was going into an interview with my CEO, and I felt panic and anxiety and burning in my chest. I thought I was having a heart attack. I fell to the ground. I learned it was a major anxiety attack. I was taken to the hospital in a stretcher. My number one concern was ‘what will they think’ rather than concern for my own health.

I realized I had a lifetime of pleasing and overachieving, and this was a reckoning for me. I was drowning childhood pain in overworking. It became a catalyst for a major transformation to continue my leadership transformation and meld my personal and professional life.

Wherever you go, there you are. If you’re not dealing with childhood trauma and wounding, it will come out in negative ways.

I’m super passionate it uncovering our automatic tendencies and show leaders how to transform.


THE PRESENT – How you eradicate burnout from the inside out

I’m an executive coach and HR consultant. I have a group for women leaders called the Crucible. The purpose is to eradicate burnout from the inside out to create sustainable leadership. I also have a private practice working with CEOs and executive teams on resilience. I practice Heart-math. I’m obsessed with cultivating heart-centered and meaningful leadership teams.



To create a leadership/life model that honors that everyone has a unique story and we’ve been shaped by things that were out of our control. I want to help people and organizations communicate and relate to others in a better and more effective way.



I used to think I wasn’t smart enough.

What was the #1 thing holding you back from becoming a woman
of value? Insecurity.

What’s the best advice you can give to a woman who wants to
become more empowered? Start small. Teeny actions on a consistent basis leads to big change.

What advice would you give to your younger self? You’re never going to be alone. You’ll learn from the good company of others.

What’s something people get wrong about you? They think that I seem like I always have it together. I get nervous before every time I speak. I worry. I get anxiety. But I have resources now to help with those emotions under pressure.

How would you like to be remembered? I would like to be remembered as real and congruently aligned. People can count on me to show up as someone aligned with my values and someone who can meet you where you are.
