February 5th Webinar
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.
Somehow their different challenges seem somehow connected and more meaningful in this LeaderMom forum.
*Heartfelt thanks to Kelly Frederickson, LeaderMom executive in residence, for the exceptional whittling metaphor.
