Resonates and inspires
As a mid career female physician in leadership, I have watched male counterparts with less clinical and job specific experience get promotions into executive roles while I continue to do the essential housekeeping work. This podcast has been game changing for how I see my story. I appreciate the difference between comparison (trap I’ve been falling in) and competition. I have learned how to ask for what I want and not expect others to recognize my work and promote me. I have refined my core values and non negotiables. Above all this is authentic, honest, compassionate work. Thank you and I can’t wait to download the audiobook.
I’m adding this to my playlist
The insightful questions and quality of the guests take this podcast a notch above for anyone wanting to lead more effective and satisfying lives.
The conversations and tips in this podcast have helped me build confidence in using my voice as a female in business, with tools that help set us up for success. The elegant warrior recognizes the daily adversity women face and she packages her insight and advice in a digestible way that feels empowering. Highly, highly recommend adding to your library!
