We see the term #girlboss thrown around all the time - but have you ever thought about how you can better leverage those qualities that women have in order to become a better business owner?
In this honest conversation with my friend Monique Svazlian-Tallon, we dive into how we all (both men and women, alike) can better utilize both feminine and masculine traits to become more authentic and effective leaders at work and at home. Drawing upon her experience as an international executive coach and leadership trainer, Monique’s shares the practical advice and easy to implement exercises outlined in her new book, Leading Gracefully: A Woman's Guide to Confident, Authentic and Effective Leadership. And if you’re interested in self-publishing, make sure to listen to some of the things she wished she knew before she embarked on the self-publishing route.
