Power may not be a “dirty” word, but it’s certainly a loaded one. Often it is associated with negative and predatory behaviors. We’ve all seen and experienced leaders who were “in power,” driven by ego, competition, and a win-at-all-costs mindset. Consequently, many women, including leaders and highly accomplished professionals, hold back and play small, hesitant to step fully into their power, lest they be perceived like “that” person. In this session, you’ll learn three key strategies to use grace in fueling your power and stepping more fully into your potential as a leader, a colleague, a partner, and a human being.
