As a woman leader you are constantly being sent the message to be more assertive and confident.
Confidence and assertiveness do have their place and most times I would encourage women leaders to embrace confidence and feel free to be assertive. However, never is this at the expense of honestly admitting when you don’t know.
If you don’t know the answer to a direct question, ‘I don’t know’ is the beginning of a good conversation. But, balancing your confidence as a leader and owning up to a lack of knowledge or competence in a certain area can be tricky.
This episode covers how to graciously admit when you don’t know and handle the situation in a way that engenders more confidence in you as a leader.
