Welcome to Strategy Skills episode 306, an episode with one of America’s most respected and accomplished voices on women as leaders and their relationship with power, Carolyn Buck Luce.

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from someone else’s point of view?

We are all born different, with unique perspective, set of skills, talent, and experience, and with this combination, we can write our own story and design a life that is aligned with our purpose and meaning. As Carolyn said, “If you want to live in a way that is worth dying for, you can choose the most epic story for yourself knowing that you already have everything you need to have a life of meaning and purpose. The only question is how you want to invest your time, your trust, your talent, and your treasures.”

Carolyn Buck Luce is a sought-after speaker, she was appointed by New York City’s former Mayor Bloomberg to his Commission on Women’s Issues and has co-authored numerous articles in the Harvard Business Review on women’s leadership, as well as diversity and inclusion.

Across five decades, Carolyn has been a successful diplomat, Wall Street banker, management consultant, healthcare futurist, talent innovator, professor, author, philanthropist, wife, mother, and grandmother. Carolyn’s life journey navigating a man’s world has given her a unique perspective on living an epic life of meaning and purpose, regardless of the obstacles. Today, she uses her proprietary Decade Game to coach leading women around the globe to step fully into their power at home, at work, and in the world. Connect with her at carolyn@mydecadegame.com.
