We’re foregoing the usual format and quote for this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne as there are way too many to list. We have gathered a prestigious panel of women to have a frank discussion about leadership and how leaders can better deal with conflict and trauma in the workplace.
This was such a great interview packed with so much interesting information about leadership and workplace conflict that we decided to turn it into a 2-part series. Be sure to tune in again next week for part II.
Our panel consists of:
