Join me today for a super interesting and witty-banter-full conversation with leadership expert, Susan Brady. Among the topics we explore are:
- Advice for thriving in a She-cession and what working women can do to flourish in this post-pandemic working reality.
- The appalling fact that the primary stage for developing confidence in girls peaks at age 9!! And of course, this impacts us the rest of our natural born lives.
- Reminder that people are human beings before human resources. Leadership is a relationship defined with a formula she calls the Four As: Acceptance, Appreciation, Attention, Authenticity, and Accountability.
- The hilarious moment while discussing DEI in which I coin my new favorite phrase, “You offended me at hello,” with apologies to Renee’s Zellweger’s character in Jerry Maguire.
Susan has a CV that rivals any I’ve seen! She is the Deloitte Ellen Gabriel Chair for Women & Leadership, CEO of The Simmons University Institute for Inclusive Leadership, Emeritus board member for non-profit Strong Women, Strong Girls, and author of a mere four books: Mastering Your Inner Critic and 7 Other High Hurdles to Advancement, The Inclusive Leader’s Playbook, The 30-Second Guide to Coaching your Inner Critic, and the newest, Arrive and Thrive: 7 Impactful Practices for Women Navigating Leadership, based on advice and experiences from 24 of the world’s most successful leaders. Also, check out her podcast, Better Understanding, and her fantastic app, our.love based on seven love skills.
