Whittling Away What Doesn’t Work
This is about our arch enemies and how to battle them — specifically, how wise LeaderMoms shed 3 oh-so-tempting, self-defeating habits of thinking and behaving, and instead cultivate self-valuing habits that are sources of power and stamina.
“Wonder Woman” complex
Our favorite part of the webinar is the dialogue with two accomplished LeaderMoms. One is an executive in healthcare and the other is a senior leader in insurance. They described very different work cultures. In one, 24-7 availability is the unwritten rule for top leaders; she is working to create an authentic voice and brand to captures how committed and effective she is at her job and as a single parent. The second works in a more family-friendly culture and struggles with well-intentioned – albeit misplaced and unconsciously biased – assumptions that she doesn’t have capacity to take on more work because she has children. She does.
*Heartfelt thanks to Kelly Frederickson, LeaderMom executive in residence, for the exceptional whittling metaphor.

Personal Brand: LeaderMoms’ Paradox of Strategic Authenticity
Our starting point was a simple charge to Kelly Fredrickson and Sarah Moore: Can you help us make the phrase "personal brand" work for LeaderMoms? Catherine described her love/hate relationship with the term that stems from a deep awareness of how important reputational capital is AND of how pernicious gender biases can be. As a long-time executive coach, she often sees gender and other biases cloaked in jargon-heavy feedback about executive presence, culture fit and personal brand.
With Kelly and Sarah's deep expertise in branding and marketing, combined with their own LeaderMom lived experience, they offered wisdom to make it more likely we can take back "personal brand," navigate common landmines, and evolve our brand in a way that supports our growth and ambitions at work and beyond.
Not only did we get the insight we wanted, we had a great time in the conversation. Join us! And please let us know what you think and what your next most important step is after you listen to or view the webinar.
