On today's episode Shea and Tyneeha discuss the importance of strong, compassionate and authentic leadership, how leaders should be and what makes them. We need to figure out a new way to use and to teach “power” to people in a professional setting. When it comes to people, we shouldn’t be focused on conquering, but building up. When that happens, you can then conquer the goals of your industry.
We also need to simply be taught, too often because someone is good at one aspect of their job, they are promoted into a leadership role without any training or support. Being a good employee doesn’t always translate into being a good leader. Leadership is extremely important because strength comes from the top down. If you are a respectful leader, if you are a competent leader, your team is respectful, and competent. How do we get there; Shea and T speak specifics, but also the general truth of being a woman in industry.
We spend more time at work than we do at home, but as women we think that one must suffer for the other to succeed. We need to balance our scales of work and personal, because there is no set time when you aren’t dealing or focused on some aspect of your whole life. It may seem like common sense, but a lot of us aren’t paying attention.
