Building a World Where a Sisterhood of Success Replaces Mean Girls

Research shows that around age 11, girls can begin to experience deficits in what is called “self-efficacy.” In layperson’s terms, this is the feeling of “I can do that.” It doesn’t stop there. As the instructor of a nationally award winning women’s leadership course, I’m called into corporations where I hear about…well…grown up versions of “Mean Girls.” Is there a connection to that 11 year-old?

Who Inspires You?

Jill is my sister-in-law. She pretty much rocks. Jill is the person who makes milk come out your nose. She is the person who people turn and say ‘who’s that?’ when she walks into a party. She’s got it. She’s got the energy. And she doesn’t abuse it. She’s Jill. You just love her already. Rewind to 1996….
