Female Leader | Confidence and Momentum

It only took one year for Heather Monahan to become a dominant female leader within the broadcasting industry. Female Leader | Become a Magnetic Leader, with Heather MonahanHer success in business development culminated in an equity partnership with her employer and it shattered the glass ceiling. Heather used her success as a springboard to build a personal brand and branch out to other forms of media, but a toxic, nepotistic workplace kept her on a short leash. When you are a threat, you will always be a target, and Heather was terminated shortly after the CEO was replaced.

No Place for Emotion

Heather says there is no room for emotion in business because it diminishes the ability to make sound decisions and serve effectively as a female leader. Even when she faced an extreme level of adversity, Heather maintained her composure and walked away from the situation with her head held high. Instead of viewing the circumstances as defeat, she found opportunity in the rubble and took a chance on herself. Heather focused all of her energy on building her company, Boss In Heels, and began writing her book, “Confidence Creator.”

Be Unique, Be You

No matter what happens beyond your control, no one can take away your reputation, your network, or anything you’ve accomplished. You just need to maintain the will to keep moving forward.
