What is an Inclusive Leader?

What does it mean to be an inclusive leader and what does that look like? What is an inclusive organization? In this week’s Vlog post I look at what these might be and explore the continuum created by Jennifer Brown in her book “How to Be An Inclusive Leader” and the stages we go through in becoming more aware of inequity in the workplace, and in life in general.

How to Build Self-Confidence pt. II

This is the second of a short series of video blogs on building self-confidence

This week we ask the question – How confident are you? It can be hard to assess our own self-confidence. Taking some time to ask a few questions and answer them honestly can help you gauge the areas where your confidence is high and the areas in which you can develop greater self-confidence

Self-confidence is all about owning it taking control of your own self. Is it easy no. you may have heard someone say to you “go on, be confident!” or “show some self-confidence!” in a very matter of fact way, or even in a demanding way without any idea of what that actually means, or even how to do it well. In this short series of blogs. I want to focus on this particular SOFT SKILL-  building your self-confidence
