Episode #51: How to Lead with Self-Compassion, All Questions Answered


Do you consider yourself a leader?

If you're not so sure, let me make it easy… YES YOU ARE.

Each one of us leads in our lives, whether that's in our homes with our kids, in our places of work or in our churches or communities.

In fact, I celebrate my young kids leadership every time they share how they helped someone else or how they played with a kid who had no one else to play with.

When I think about leadership, I think of always being the kind of leader or boss I wish I had. For me that means compassionate and inclusive. 

On this weeks podcast I give you 3 actionable tips (and a lot of other nuggets) on how you can show up and be a human-centered leader. 

Listen in to this episode where Latina leader, Paula Castillo, and successful entrepreneur, Jessica Carter ask me all about becoming the kind of leader you always wish you had.
