030: Women Leaders Rising: From the Perspective of an Ally

It was a lot of fun being on the other side of the interview table for this! A couple months ago I was asked to be a speaker at the Women Leaders Rising Summit hosted by its founder, Lav Chintapalli. Lav is a leadership strategist and coach, who helps women develop strategies to create greater impact in their careers. Lav’s passion is to support and empower women to step bravely into their potential and have the impact they were born to have.

This episode is a short but powerful excerpt from my talk, which is an interview with Lav, on my experience in developing women into leaderships positions, and specifically, what it takes to succeed.

Key Takeaways:

  • Project confidence
  • Positioning – where are you currently positioned and what’s your destination point?
  • Find mentors who can help guide you along your journey, but be very strategic in your selection
  • When it comes to your development, you control a lot more than you think you do
