Why we must speak up as leaders - #024
In today’s episode, I dive deep into why we must speak up as leaders.
This episode was hard to create. I’m not gonna lie to you, the honest truth is that I’ve been at a loss for words.
Just like most people around the world, I’ve been utterly devastated by the murder of George Floyd.
I’ve also been painfully aware of the fact that I’m a white privileged woman, hyper-educated, and immensely biased due to my own mental constructs, trying to speak about racism and privilege without sounding like a total tool.
I firmly do believe that my role is not to lead this discussion in any way, or to see myself as a spokesperson for people of color.
So what I’ve been struggling with is to find a way of contributing to a discussion that matters, without taking away from those who need to be heard.
My goal is for you to understand why we must speak up as leaders, I want to invite you to step up your game as a leader, as a professional, as an entrepreneur or as someone with a voice of reason, demanding action and accountability and using the power you hold to.
How you bring awareness to your biases and mental constructs that limit how you operate, how you lead and how you live.
Why there is a huge privilege of being hyper-educated and how that privilege can deeply bias your perception of the world.
Why you start by questioning your own mental models first and get really rigorous around your own biases.
The importance of understanding that we are tremendously biased and looking at the world from a place where we can’t see what we can’t see.
What it truly means to lead with empathy and deep understanding.
Why this is the time to step up your game as a leader, as a professional, as an entrepreneur, and as someone with a voice of reason, demanding action and accountability, and using the power you hold to.
