Do women underestimate their value as leaders?

Michelle Patterson on the C.A.P. Podcast, Part 1
Women are hard-wired to be leaders, and yet this innate talent is woefully untapped in Corporate America. In this first excerpt of the May 2, 2014, episode of The C.A.P. Podcast, I chat with Michelle Patterson, President of The California Women’s Conference, about the state of women in leadership today.

Listen to the podcast nowWomen often undervalue their talents and expertise. In this excerpt, Michelle gives the example of a both a man and a woman looking at a job description with 10 criteria for the perfect candidate. The man meets 3 out of 10 points and believes he’s perfect for the position. The woman meets 7 out of the 10 and passes because she doesn’t have all 10. This illustrates the mindset shift that women need to make if we are going to step up to our rightful place as co-leaders of this country (dare I say, the world!).
