What Kind of Leader Are You?

"Fear limits a leader. Fearless leadership is an approach that takes the woman leader to her next level of leadership!"

Nukhet Hendricks

Despite having successful careers, women leaders can be their own worst enemies by sabotaging their success at work. Even if they are successful, they are still hesitant to play big. This happens because they harbor self-defeating thoughts and habits without thinking about the consequences or the messages they send to others who can influence their career opportunities.

Your answers to this quiz will help you decide if you are getting in the way of our own success and where to go from here.
