What is It to Be a Powerful Woman Today? is a podcast series hosted by author and coach Wendy Wallbridge in conversation with intrepid women––women who have veered from the officially sanctioned path to success to express their own badass power in soul-fulfilling ways. From them, we learn a new definition of power. This is not power over, but power-with, and ultimately power-within. It’s time to navigate the inner and outer barriers that stop us from rising. It’s time to give fully of our gifts. It’s time for us sisters to move out of the sidelines and have the impact we long for. It’s time to be a powerful woman.

    When Sleeping Women Wake

    Women are rising, speaking out, and demanding change. We are Woke! But how do we deal with our anger and perhaps even our desire to blame, so we can move forward and create a new definition of power based on feminine principles of collaboration and kinship?

    If You Only Stop Singing, I'll Make you Safe

    In this second podcast, If You Only Stop Singing, I’ll Make You Safe, (a title taken from a poem by David Whyte), we explore the back story of how women came to be excluded from the power structure in the first place.

    You've Had the Power All Along, My Dear

    You've Had the Power All Along, My Dear

    In this episode, You’ve Had the Power All Along, My Dear, we will look at how women in the workplace have learned to armor up and why that isn’t a long-term success strategy.
    We will see how our vulnerability is key to becoming authentic leaders. And we will learn ways to build our resilience and confidence while confronting what my clients call the “1,000 paper cuts a day” that erode our sense of professional self-worth.
    The truth is that power is not reactive, not acquired, not something you earn or accumulate, and it doesn’t look like anyone else’s. That means you are going to have to define it and claim it for yourself.
    The inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant reminds us: Power is your birthright…and the only thing that can diminish your power is the belief that you do not have it.
    Statistics show that while women have made headway, we still have a long way to go. A staggering 41% of women in tech drop out because the system as it is structured doesn’t reward them, recognize them, or make the space for a more feminine, relational style of leadership.
    It’s clearly time for a change.
