Do you struggle with establishing a healthy and balanced workplace presence? Are you trying to figure out what kind of leader you want to be both inside and outside of the office?
As a female executive in the end of the 20th Century, Sonja Klopcic experienced quite a bit of criticism from her male colleagues. One of the most frequent objections to her leadership style was this: “You’re too soft.” Despite this complaint, Sonja knew what the results said — her empathetic and empowering style of leadership was far more effective than the harsh, authoritarian approach of her male counterparts. Since then, Sonja has learned much more about leadership and today, she is here to share her best-kept secrets with listeners everywhere.
