Strategic Leading Through an Authentic Lens with Dr. Erika Michalski

Authentic Leadership with Roxanne Derhodge and Erika Michalski

Quote: “How would the mental load shift if the lens of success and the metric of accomplishment became an internal concept rooted in authenticity, rather than an external driver?”  Dr. Erika Michalski

Authentic leadership is a topic that is very near and dear to me.  My upcoming book is based on this very idea and is due to be released in the Fall of 2021.  I have a great affinity for discussing authentic leadership so on this episode of Authentic Living with Roxanne, we welcome Dr. Erika Michalski to discuss her thoughts on creating a more productive and cohesive workspace by leading through an authentic lens.   

Dr. Erika Michalski has a robust history of providing energetic keynotes, developing large-scale educational programming, and facilitating engaging workshops dedicated to empowering participants and cultivating new ideas about professional development through a lens of authenticity. Erika is passionate about creating environments where individuals feel equipped to tackle new challenges as they move forward in personal and professional endeavours.
