On this episode of Female Inner Power, we delve into:

  • Why being ‘nice’ doesn’t mean not being able to make difficult decisions.
  • The value of creating a safe, trusting environment while also being accountable to your team.
  • Finding the confidence to put yourself forward for board positions, become financially literate and advocate for yourself in job offer negotiations.
  • The benefits of network creation and the power of mentorship programs.

Sara also shares her personal experiences of successful leadership and explores the concept of unconscious bias and the need for more diversified opportunities, promoting diversity and creating change.
