Being an Assertive Female Leader
In this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Leanna about being an assertive female leader in the workplace. Leanna emphasizes the need to be vulnerable allowing us to learn our true goals and implement the type of leadership needed to attain them. It is common for women to face a plethora of challenges, including likeability standards and leadership stereotypes on the premise of race and gender. Through her experience as a successful entrepreneur, Leanna teaches us to ignore false beliefs about women in leadership and to embrace our individual work styles, showing everyone who’s boss. With some self-awareness and a relentless drive to succeed, we’ll be exactly where we intend to be!
