Can you imagine navigating the cut-throat world of corporate leadership as a woman? What if you had the tools to not just survive, but thrive? Our recent chat with leadership expert Dana Mahina, offered an insider’s glimpse into the towering struggles, and remarkable triumphs of female leaders in the corporate industry. We covered a range of topics, from the uncomfortable realities of inequality and privilege, to the importance of active allyship. Dana’s insights on the Strength Finders assessment tool and its role in understanding individual strengths and blind spots were particularly illuminating.

The conversation took an interesting turn when we grappled with the fiercely competitive nature of women in corporate spaces, especially in places like Silicon Valley. Dana shared her candid observations on the often-expressed need for women to mimic male behavior to stay competitive. We also delved into the curious dynamics of confrontation in the workplace, where Dana offered invaluable advice on maintaining assertiveness without aggression and fostering curiosity during challenging discussions.

Most importantly, our engaging chat with Dana shed light on the essential role of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Drawing from her experience at a rally in Northern California, Dana underscored the importance of making a difference and how she’s seen the women’s movement shake up the corporate bureaucracy. Wrapping up, we indulged in a sneak peek into Dana’s new book ‘B is for Burnout, Not Bitch – From Overdrive to Thrive,’ and explored the importance of self-love in the demanding environment of corporate leadership. This episode is a goldmine of wisdom for aspiring leaders, don’t miss out!
