    How to Be Called Up to Leadership
    Taking a cue from Joe Biden’s public announcement that he will select a woman as a VP candidate if he is his party’s nominee, Gloria takes a closer look at how someone might get herself ready to be selected for a major leadership role in any organization. She invites us to consider: how does one position oneself to be tapped by others who see your talent and want to help you move forward? How does one break through the barrier of otherness, of not being like or looking like the people that we have always seen in that seat? Gloria’s guidance on these and other foundational questions will help us all normalize women's leadership at the highest levels.

Customer Reviews

Shalini Sardana ,

Love this podcast

Gloria, I love your podcast. The episode on mental health was particularly insightful.
My hike this morning turned into a series of light bulb moments. Thank you! So many wonderful takeaways. Personally, the "strong woman" narrative we keep telling ourselves really resonates for me. There aren't enough tools and strategies to identify how it plays out and how to prevent it. It creeped up on me just last week with some alarming personal responses to simple daily struggles. I was shocked at my own responses. "Turning off" - not just digitally but professionally and personally, seems impossible as a single parent. More on this issue please.
Loved your guests!
