Keisha Shields is on the show today. We explored leadership in depth and she provided some incredible distinctions around transparency, storytelling and oversharing. Her big truth was around issues leaders have and the difficulty of "claiming space."
We talked about different types of leaders, how people come to their true center and the distinction between privacy and secrecy. Keisha shared a bit of her story, along with her practice of being an open chapter, but not an open book, which I loved, and we also explored the value of sharing our stories and storytelling.
We got into discerning when it's valuable to share the story of an experience, or the story of the impact the experience had on us, the difference between healthy and unhealthy validation and determining if and when we are safe ourselves or we are protecting someone else's safety.
This is a really smart, fiery, and fun conversation, enjoy!
