Phronesis: Practical Wisdom for Leaders

with Julie Owen


Quotes from This Episode
  • “Instead of telling girls, they’re being bossy, what if we reframe that as the nexus of leadership?”
  • “How do we help girls and women align their confidence and their capacity?”
  • “So this is messed up. We have to stop doing that. We have to stop having these comparative kinds of binary approaches to leadership because it makes for a precarious pedestal.”
  • “Stop talking about feminine ways of leading and start looking at feminist leadership where you actually own your story, and how you acknowledge power in leadership.”
