I interviewed my friend Natoshia. She talks about her challenge with mental wellbeing – how she wants to “show up” each day – and how her commitment to herself impacts how she models leadership for students. Natoshia works at an institution of higher education in leadership development.
While in corporate America, I spent more time than I can count thinking about how I can authentically express myself and be heard without coming across as “too angry”. What is the “right” amount of passion and commitment I can convey when I am advocating for myself and others while remaining likable? How do I come across as powerful and intelligent without being labeled as intimidating? Bottom line: exhausting.
