This is part 2/2 of a series on confidence. Studies show that women don’t lack confidence as much as they have fear of backlash.
This episode is packed with actionable ways to solve the root problem of fear of backlash, including improving assertive communication skills, building a stronger network, and creating a culture that makes it easy and safe for women to celebrate their accomplishments regularly.
