Friends - I am writing a book which I am calling "You Lead Like a Girl". The chapter I'm trying to birth at the moment is about the process of becoming comfortable in your own leadership skin. I'm trying to collect stories and insights on how this process is both similar and different for men and women. Can I get some conversation going on this topic? For both men and women - How long did it take you to feel comfortable in your own skin as a leader? In what ways have you imitated others along the way and at what point did you really find your own voice?
Hmm. I've thought a lot about leadership in relation to my Star Wards work, but not in terms of me as a leader. I've identified more as a catalyst and convenor and uber-networker. But I guess I am the leader, if leadership means some combination of identifying priorities, motivating people, working out strategy and implementing plans to achieve the objectives.
