086 Authenticity in Leadership With Sonya Sigler Part 1 of a Two-Part Interview
In this episode, Christina Martini and Sonya Sigler discuss:
Sonya’s journey to becoming a lawyer and what she learned and accomplished along the way.
Her work with mentoring and empowering women.
The importance of having important role models.
The need to be authentic, have an open mind and mentality of inclusivity.
Sometimes you get to where you are meant to go by knowing what not to do.
There is a time and place for formal mentoring, but sometimes the most valuable mentorship can happen more organically.
Don’t dismiss men as role models or mentors.
Reach out to someone you admire, let them know why you admire them, and ask them questions, you might just form a mentoring relationship that way.
"We're all in this together and we have to support each other. You can't just succeed as a woman leader just by yourself or with the help of other women; it's going to involve men and women. Cultivating that support wherever it is, from a man, or a woman, or a well rounded group of people, is really important to keep in mind." — Sonya Sigler
