Guest, Heather Petersen says she’s ditched heels, but after speaking with her it’s more like she’s always kept one foot in a work boot, while the other was in something flashier. She’s started up a women-only mentoring and workshop facility on a working farm in rural Minnesota.
Before Michael can even get to that, he and Heather talk about the need to balance your own energies and spaces, they don’t have to be equal, but they need to be in sync somehow. They do pause to contemplate how some of these things may sound to the skeptical ear, but the truth is that it works. Corporate life is a rough space for us all, and when unbalanced, unsupported people walk into leadership roles it’s just chaos feeding chaos.
