    [Ep#220] Empowering Women in Leadership Beyond Traditional Norms

    [Ep#220] Empowering Women in Leadership Beyond Traditional Norms

    Joining us is the extraordinary Analiza Wolf, CEO of Women of Color RISE, executive coach, acclaimed author of "The Myths of Success: A Women of Color's Guide to Leadership," and host of the Women of Color Rise podcast. She brings her wealth of experience to the table, sharing insights into the unique challenges women—particularly women of color—face in climbing the corporate ladder.
    In this candid conversation, Analiza unpacks the concept of the "concrete ceiling," navigates the nuances of networking, and champions the need for authentic relationship-building as a means to bolster job security and career progression. She bravely shares her personal trials and teaches us the transformative power of owning our mistakes and embracing vulnerability in leadership.
    We'll dissect the societal norms and biases that discourage women from seeking top leadership roles and highlight the value of compassion and empathy—as opposed to traditional views that prioritize dominance. Analiza offers her perspective on the double bind of humility versus ambition, helping us understand how to communicate our achievements without diminishing the collective effort of our teams.
    It's time to challenge the dichotomy of being both decisive and collaborative and to embrace a new paradigm of transformational leadership.
    On today’s show, Analiza is going to share:  

    If you really want to change the world, women should aspire to be CEO. 

    Be prepared to navigate the double bind (ex. Be tough AND likeable) 

    It is possible to break through the concrete ceiling (different than the glass ceiling) for women of color – by understanding how the game is played.
