As women try to make a lasting positive impact on the people and organizations that they lead, sometimes little girl behaviors creep in and inadvertently detract from our effectiveness. Jane will be sharing 4 of the most frequent little girl behaviors that tend to show up in the leadership behaviors of women and suggest strategies to steer your leadership to the more mature version of those behaviors.
