The Myth of the Nice Girl: Leading with Strength and Kindness | 2019 Session

Even in 2019, we continue to grapple with the negative perception of women’s “niceness” in the business world. If women are nice, they are seen as weak and ineffective. But if they are tough, they are labeled a bitch. This is the perfect session for women trying to navigate the complexity of relationships at work while staying kind and respectful. This session will explore how women can reclaim “nice” and sidestep regressive stereotypes about what a strong leader looks like.  Sharing her time-tested strategies, Fran Hauser will prove that women don’t have to sacrifice their values or hide their authentic personalities to be successful. Together, we will explore how to:

  • Balance being empathetic and decisive
  • Ask for what you want without feeling badly
  • Become a boss who is not feared but respected
  • Lead with kindness, empathy, humanity and STRENGTH.
