Don't change your behaviour just because you've become a leader!

I've had 3 private coaching clients come to me in the past couple of weeks with the same misunderstanding: They thought their leadership style was too nice / empathetic / caring.

But when we dug down further, it was because the only role models they'd ever had were men with super directive communication styles.

This is common for women in STEM. Our examples of leadership are often people who are nothing like us.

Not sure how to create your own leadership style? I've got you.
