You CAN Lead: Discovering Your Strengths with Amy Landry

If you’ve ever questioned your potential, women’s leadership expert Amy Landry is here to tell you that yes, you CAN lead. Whether you’re running a business, guiding a team or leading your family at home, Amy reveals her top tips for discovering your strengths.



In today’s conversation with women’s leadership expert Amy Landry, we cover everything from cultivating leadership skills in your personal and professional life, to the importance and power that lies in knowing your strengths, to the tough transition that new moms make when they return to work.

If you’re someone who is at all interested in taking on leadership roles – what Amy has to say is going to be right up your alley. And one thing I’ll add – if you are a mom, you’ll probably relate to our conversation about the shock of returning to work after having a baby. If you’re not a mom – maybe you want to have children someday, or you have friends or colleagues with kids – you’ll learn a little more about what that transition is like, and how you can show compassion and be supportive to women during one of the most challenging stages of life.

I hope this episode inspires you to take action in some way, whether it’s uncovering your strengths, growing as a leader or supporting higher standards of parental support in the workplace.
