Most people understand resilience as bouncing back to who you were before, but for Dana Manciagli, it means learning and not settling with being a mere victim. This means being sensitive to other people, making the right choices, and being courageous enough to say “no”.

However, women often inhibit their own success and allow their stories to get in their way. They fear being ambitious, asking for an increase, and aiming higher. All of these limiting thoughts hinder women’s progress and prevent them from having a remarkable career.

In this week’s episode of Lead Like A Woman, Andrea Heuston is joined by Dana Manciagli, President of Job Search Masterclass, to talk about being resilient, aiming higher, and how she helps job candidates score the best jobs through her masterclass. Dana also shares how she battled breast cancer alongside her twin sister and how she came up with her masterclass curriculum. Stay tuned.

In this episode…

When it comes to leadership, some leaders avoid making major changes in their organizations. Oftentimes it’s because they allow their fears to hold them back from doing something that could potentially take their business to the next level. And one of these is being afraid of having their ideas or proposals rejected by their employees or fellow leaders in the organization.

However, great leadership requires a person who is willing to go above and beyond, and act even when there is uncertainty. Being a leader requires courage and facing one’s fears. And there is no way that you can’t become an awesome leader if you are set on staying average and doing what everyone else is doing.

On this episode of Lead Like A Woman Show, Andrea Heuston talks with Georgia Green, Founder and CEO of BEU Revolution, about what it takes to become a great and awesome leader. Georgia also talks about going on a 2,000 mile hike from Mexico to Canada alone, what inspired her to start the BEU Revolution, and she also shares her advice to fellow women leaders. Stay tuned.
