In this episode…

In leadership positions, men often extinguish or appropriate women’s ideas and characteristics. Consequently, women leaders become subdued, withholding their struggles and hiding parts of themselves that make them unique. How can you exhibit your authenticity to promote self-acceptance and build healthy relationships?

Traditional capitalist cultures suppress nuanced communication, reducing honest storytelling to an ingenuine marketing strategy. Behaviorist and master storyteller Christina Harbridge says synthetic communication is not viable and advocates for transparency and authentic vulnerability instead. This involves embracing your imperfections and strengths to gain the confidence to advocate for yourself and others. 

Andrea Heuston joins Christina Harbridge, CEO of Allegory, Inc., in today’s episode of the Lead Like a Woman Show to talk about displaying authenticity and leading with strength. Christina shares how she fostered a culture of humanity through her debt-collection business, her passion for encouraging women to run for government positions, and the power of authentic vulnerability.
