Struggling with a difficult manager may not be new for Kristen, but shrinking back and allowing him to run her over was. Kristen talks about the mindset she lived with for months and how she began the journey of turning the tables and taking back her power.

When reflecting on a season when Kristen gave up her voice and defaulted her power to others, she realized she was taking a child’s posture in an adult role. Defining who she is became the foundation for stepping out and speaking up.

Tangible Takeaways:

  • It’s ok to name your RIQ (reason I quit) and put action behind it.
  • When someone confronts you with power-play tactics, remember: you are not in competition with them
  • Avoid waiting for someone older to come in and rescue you, it is up to you to take action.
  • Remember: you are an adult in an adult role! Avoid taking the child’s posture.
  • Define who you are and what you want to project in the world.
