Why speaking up does not help women leaders thrive, and what does

Yesterday I read an Harvard Business Review article on research suggesting that men get credit for voicing ideas but women don’t. As a coach helping women (and men) to be successful leaders, I am particularly interested in this topic. It got me thinking about how unconscious bias stands in the way of women emerging as leaders and how we can address this.

My life as I knew it changed suddenly. I learned the hard way that the stories we tell ourselves can keep us from healing and can hold us back from experiencing life fully.Read More

Leadership: Treat your people like family

People’s lives matter and it’s people within a company that help build a company and enable it to thrive. As a leader, it is your job to do right by your team members, to enable them to thrive.
