Don’t: Beat around the bush with people and circle around the truth.
Don’t: Divulge confidential information.
As women leaders, we’re working for a purpose that is greater than ourselves. Therefore, being open to sharing what we have learned through our weaknesses and failures can be a powerful tool by which God can work. Inappropriately divulging details of personal struggles, interpersonal conflicts, and sensitive programming information, however, can distract others from growing in their own personal relationship with God. Learning to find a proper balance between emotional and strategic authenticity can help strengthen any woman’s capacity toward leadership.
