My Lesson in Tactical Manipulation and Self Worth

~by Debbie Vandenakker~ . He said the words. The ones designed to hit at the heart of my self-worth. “You aren’t worth what I’m paying you.” I felt like a cartoon character that had all of the oxygen sucked out of the room. I left that discussion hurt, angry and ashamed. I spent two weeks hiding out with those words playing in a constant mocking loop … “You aren’t worth what I’m paying you.

Each workday is a statement against sexism and a delicate balancing act — one that every woman who’s made any headway in business has learned to take in stride. What no one will tell you is that when women entrepreneurs leave the office, the struggles don’t stop. They just follow us home. And no one ever tells you what happens there.

Why Leading With a Servant’s Heart Should Matter to You

servant's heart

My perspective on leadership is somewhat different from most. Anyone can yell orders or coerce others into doing what they want through a variety of strategies. But there is one way that will lead you straight into people’s hearts forever, and it’s not for the weak of stomach. It’s leading with a servant’s heart.
