Welcome to Season 7, Episode #1 of Discover the Leader in You!
Hey everyone! Fair Warning, today’s show offers some powerful insights on a sensitive topic. A topic that can be disturbing…. Disturbing in the sense that the daily recounting of stories by those who have experienced the pain, embarrassment and fear of sexual misconduct has become far too frequent in the headlines.
For this reason, situations like this should never be ignored and instead we must ask how can we change the narrative, so it does not happen any longer. To help us bring a different perspective while seeking clarity, the founder and president of accent learning & consulting, Sarah Gibson will be joining us live in the studio today.
4 Key Points from This Episode:
- Sexual misconduct can happen to anyone.
- Leaders have a responsibility to create a safe environment.
- The more that we have tough conversations, the more the environment can improve.
- Men are just as susceptible to being victims of misconduct.
