The 'Bossy' Lady Struggle

The 'Bossy' Lady Struggle with Jennifer Spoelma

Listen to the episode!

Show Notes:

There are a handful of words in the English language that can make us cringe just thinking about being labeled as such.

“Bossy” is one of those words.

Especially as a woman, being labeled as bossy can feel as degrading as having a major rumor spread about you in the professional world.

Many opt to try and avoid being labeled bossy at all costs. But, there’s a catch. There certainly can be a cost when we seek to appease rather than live into our gifting s as leaders.

I propose, rather than succumbing to the pitfalls of a title, we take these words, and rephrase them to work more powerfully toward our capabilities.
