    How Female Leaders Are Changing The World with DAWN ANDREWS

    How Female Leaders Are Changing The World with DAWN ANDREWS

    Oftentimes when we talk about more women becoming leaders in business, we measure their new roles to the standard of the “old boys club.” 

    What if instead of expecting women to lead the same way, we let them take their seat at the table and do things their own way?
    Women exhibit certain soft skills that are crucial to the success of a company, and research shows that their high level of collaboration and empowerment can be more beneficial than the old-school authoritative style. Discussing just some of the benefits of women-led companies on the podcast today is Dawn Andrews, founder of business strategy consulting company, Free Range Thinking, and the Female Leadership Accelerator.
    Dawn and Bernadette also talk about the many critical skills that every leader needs and how leadership training can help develop them, as well as why “fake it ‘til you make it” may be an outdated philosophy.

    Today, we address a question that many professionals have when they take on a new job, a new position, or even a new employer: how can I excel in a new role while also meeting my personal needs?
