“As a leader, you will fail by your own but you will succeed with your team,” Dorin-Blanchard said.
It’s been another tumultuous year for the world of work – and for women in the workplace. As we celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we come together to reflect on the many challenges still remaining for women in the workforce.
In the latest episode of our Future of Work Conversations series, we invited Sandrine Dorin-Blanchard, Group SVP of Sales Operations, to speak with Mara Stefan, Group SVP of Thought Leadership about being a female executive in a male-dominated space, imposter syndrome, and some of the judgement she has received as a women in power.
The SVP of Sales Operations said that she’s been judged and called many different labels throughout her career, including the labels bossy and cold. “It’s also us accepting that we are different…it’s not a weakness to be different,” Dorin-Blanchard said. She said it comes down to understanding your own weaknesses, practicing mindfulness, harnessing the power of your team and accepting your own potential imposter syndrome and doing it anyways.
“As a leader, you will fail by your own but you will succeed with your team,” Dorin-Blanchard said. Watch the full conversation above.
