You will want to write this down – boss sister! I’ll wait while you get a pen and paper, or you could just pause this episode for a second - GIGGLE

I am so excited to share a new leadership maxim with you. It has a success rate better than Elle Wood’s Bend and Snap. This maxim actually has a 100% success rate. It has worked every time I have employed it in a meeting. As you know, I’ve spent my professional career as a Human Resources Executive in the manufacturing sector, so I’ve spent a lot of time in meetings with dominating male voices. Many of you are in the same situation whether in ministry or the marketplace. I was blessed to be on staff at my church as the Director of Women’s Ministry where our staff meetings were comprised of four male ministers and four female staff members, two of which were Directors. We had great conversations. Our male counterparts were always interested in what we had to say. Female Leaders listen up - Our voices, opinions and experiences matter, but it can be difficult sometimes to break into male dominated conversations.

Today, in this influence episode, I am going to show you how to interject this leadership maxim in meetings and conversations that will help you regain control of the subject and/or completely redirect the discussion to where you want it to go whether in ministry or the marketplace. Welcome to episode #28.
