What does it look like to reclaim taking up space, standing firm in your capabilities? Dr. Jessica Taylor, CEO and founder of Leadership Training Initiative, sat down with us to share what it looks like on her journey, awakening agency, saying “No,” and kindly rejecting what is not for her. She talks about reclaiming one’s value in the workplace, especially as women of color, and what equitable leaders actually look like. We hear about the long term gain of having internal check-ins and making sure we’re engaging our teams and organizations out of a thriving wholeness rather than obligation. Our community also receives inspiration on what it means to protect one’s peace and about the impact self-work has on future generations.
