Guest Post By Stacy Ennis And Ron Price
Recently, Ron Price and I published a leadership fable, Growing Influence: A story of how to lead with character, expertise, and impact. Along with teaching leadership principles, the story tackles gender discrimination in the workplace. The main character, Emily, meets and befriends an older retired CEO named David. Through their friendship, David is exposed to the unconscious (and sometimes quite conscious) biases in the modern workplace; Emily benefits from David’s wisdom over years of leadership and uses what she learns to overcome what feels like an impossible situation.
