How to Advance as a Strong Female Leader in a Male Dominated Context - and Other Lessons
In this interview Edna Morris, with forty years' experience in the male dominated restaurant industry, shares some great advice to apply to our field in many of the patriarchal contexts for men and women. For example when Edna was told by several men that the role she had taken at a new job should be for a man, she shares how she handled this situation in a way which earned her respect. She also shares advice around how her leadership skills evolved as she advanced in her career and examples of how she handled some difficult situations and managed to find a win-win for all involved. At the end of the podcast I will provide a summary of a few points of advice she gives and some ideas on how you could apply a few of these things to your situation. I know this episode is a bit longer than normal, but I made sure it is packed full of great advice that you may apply in your future.
