In this episode…

Finding the way to your destination is important, but so is the journey you take to get there. For matters that fall outside of simple navigation, how do you determine the best way forward? And, if you find yourself in a leadership role, how can you be sure that you’re staying true to yourself as you lead others?

For Deirdre Breakenridge, leading like a woman means embracing who you are, believing in yourself, and using that as a gift to lead others. She suggests that if you take the time to listen to your inner GPS and learn to trust it, it will guide you to new opportunities. Deirdre also recommends having well-defined values so that your inner GPS can guide you on ethical matters as well. 

In this episode of the Lead Like A Woman Show, Andrea Heuston interviews Deirdre Breakenridge, the CEO of Pure Performance Communications, about the need for women to trust in their inner GPS. Deirdre also talks about building her business, dealing with a family tragedy, and writing several books. Plus, Deirdre explains why the FEEL model that she created is helping leaders and brands form better relationships.
