EP26: Your Mother Was Right: Lessons on Leadership and the Brain with Sandra McDowell

You heard it here first. Your mother was right! During this podcast, I welcomed Sandra McDowell, applied neuroscience educator and founder of the eLeadership Academy, back to Brave Women at Work. We talked about Sandra’s book, Your Mother was Right: 15 Unexpected Lessons About Leadership and the Brain and more:


– Sandra redefined neuroleadership and shared some practical tips from her book

– We discussed why we’re so disengaged at work and how we can take personal responsibility to drive our engagement

– I shared how the “It’s Not the End of the World” chapter struck me, and Sandra explained why worrying and living in a negative bias mindset aren’t helpful

– We chatted about self-esteem and its importance with leadership

– Sandra shared a few small steps women can take today to be better leaders at work and at home


Sandra is such a wealth of knowledge and a great guest. You don’t want to miss this conversation!

Book Your Discovery Call

How much would you give to sit across a coach who was trained to help women just like you get clear, overcome their obstacles and take action to achieve their career goals? Well, for anyone serious about their career, the price would be quite high and worth every penny. But for a short time, for a small number of people, I’m offering that opportunity…without charge.

That’s right, with my Discovery Call you have the chance to work with me one on one, absolutely free. Typically a session like this is $250, but I’m waiving the fee for anyone who applies today.

Because I hold these calls personally, there are very few spots available, so if you’re serious about about finding your dream career and would like the guidance and support of a trained expert, use the calendar provided to apply for your session now.
