    As 46 year old Gay man who has survived 28 surgeries and one near-death over 30 years due to hydrocephalus, plus over 28 years with HIV, I wanted to affirm the 9 Ways as you present them. As I have taken increasing ownership of creating change on issues important to me, being able to publicly tell my story in my own words–from geek to cognitively impaired to working on my second Master’s, from survivor of abuse to sex worker to loving partner, from drug addict to fitness nut–has helped others understand and agree with my agenda more than abstract examples and taglines. My winding, broken road has brought me to a place professionally where I can bring all of who I am to my work and from which I can plot a course towards revolutionizing hydrocephalus care for millions as a non-scientist.

    Namaste.

Take The Lead Presented and Connected in 2014—and Wants Your Suggestions for 2015

IMG_6939-X3Understanding the Role Confidence Plays Would workplaces become more balanced and society more equitable if women exhibited more confidence? Katty Kay and Claire Shipman created a stir with their book The Confidence Code and their article, “The Confidence Gap” in The Atlantic. To continue this important conversation, we were honored to have Shipman speak to the Take The Lead community in July about how personal confidence relates to women advancing in the workplace and in society. Yes, women face very real barriers, no matter how confident we are, but leading with confidence expands our possibilities in ways that change our lives and the lives of other women. (Like this quote? Tweet it!) Did you attend this event with Shipman? What did you learn? This confidence question will surely be an ongoing conversation, so we’d love to hear your thoughts! TakeTheLead-80-X3The Solution to Feeling Stuck: Get a Coach! At Take The Lead we teach women to define their lives and careers on their own terms. But history has also told us how crucial it is to seek help when we need it. That’s why we were so excited to gather some of the best coaches we know for an event in NYC sponsored by the fabulous ALEX AND ANI. Alisa Cohn, Robyn Hatcher, Bonnie Marcus, Dana Balicki, Audrey S. Lee, Maggie Castro Stevens, and Leslie Grossman joined us to share their wisdom and generously donate hours of coaching time to attendees.
