Are you tired of feeling like you need to fit into a predetermined mold to succeed as a leader? 

Today, we're breaking down some of the common myths that hold women leaders back. 

From being told to "lean in" to the pressure to prioritize likability, I'll dissect these myths and offer empowering alternatives.

Here’s what you can expect from the episode:

  • Why "leaning in" isn't the only solution for women, and how to leverage your strengths strategically.
  • How you can use vulnerability as a leadership strength instead of hiding it.
  • The importance of emotional intelligence over ignoring your feelings.
  • How to address bias in the workplace while staying focused on your goals.
  • Why aiming for respect is ultimately better than focusing on likability.

Remember that great leadership embodies strength, compassion, strategy, and empathy. It's a beautiful, complex thing. Own it!
