Women still struggle to show their true selves in the workplace. Whether we become stuck in dying stereotypes only to overcompensate with a punch down attitude - or simply minimize ourselves to stay afloat in ever-changing currents; we cannot and will not become the leaders we aspire to be until we stop apologizing for who we are and lean into our personal truths.
When you desire to grow, stretch, and learn, a deep sense of purpose will follow. May we all strive to achieve this in our careers, using relentless authenticity, integrity-focused decisions, support-based relationships and diversity-built teams to drive us onwards.
Saying “yes” to yourself means you are expanding, instead of shrinking. You are taking risks that promote self-growth instead of making excuses or blaming others for why you are not achieving your goals. And you are continuously challenging yourself to redefine what your comfort zone looks like.
