Sasha, this is an absolutely new and brilliant way to think of both what it means to be a leader and bringing our true selves to work. As a female engineer from India, with very supportive colleagues and strong female mentors, I have often wondered why we women are supposed to change ourselves to fit the “ Mold” — decided by a collective set of mostly older white men at least here in the U.S. That is what is driven into every “ Leadership” class I’ve gone to — speak more assertively, power positions, being direct, demanding …the list goes on and I ‘am sure everyone gets it. Let’s hope for a culture shift at least for our daughters.
