5 Conversations with Women Leaders That Will Inspire You This International Women’s Day | Molly Fletcher’s Game Changers
International Women’s Day is an opportunity for leaders and organizations to celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of diverse women leaders around the world. We do this in many ways, but one critically valuable tool in our leadership toolkit is our ability to seek out new perspectives and really listen.
And, there’s great news for those of us looking to expand our world and our minds: Trailblazing sports agent, author and host Molly Fletcher regularly delivers fresh insights from inspiring leaders through her transformational podcast, Game Changers with Molly Fletcher. Each week, Molly brings us special guests—top athletes and coaches, renowned CEOs, brilliant thought leaders, and entrepreneurs and innovators from around the world.
Then, check out this curated list of five of our favorite recent episodes featuring some truly extraordinary women leaders:
Rebecca Minkoff on Break the Rules and Re-Write Your Life
“Sometimes you win; sometimes you learn.”
What’s the #1 blocker to achieving your biggest goals and dreams? Fear. Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer and wildly successful entrepreneur. As an industry leader in accessible luxury handbags and apparel, her designs are inspired by strong, confident women. In her new book, Fearless, Rebecca rewrites the rules to share her secrets for unlocking creativity, courage and success. In this conversation, Rebecca guides us on how to let go of others’ expectations, overcome the fear of failure, and reach our goals—no matter how unattainable they may seem.
Luvvie Ajayi Jones on Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable
“The life we want is on the other side of fear.”
Luvvie Ajayi Jones is a New York Times bestselling author, podcast host, and speaker. Her TED Talk has been viewed more than 6.6 million times, and Oprah named her to the inaugural SuperSoul100 list as someone who “elevates humanity.” Luvvie’s new book, Professional Troublemaker, inspires us all to live life loudly—with courage and conviction. On this episode, she walks us through how to do the things that scare us, embrace our unique superpowers, and use our voice for a greater good.
Olympian Dominique Dawes on How to Find Fulfillment
“Pain serves a greater purpose in life.”
Dominique Dawes is a three-time Olympic gymnast who helped Team USA to its first-ever gold medal at the Summer Games in Atlanta in 1996. She is the only American gymnast to medal in the team competition at three different Olympic Games and is the first African American gymnast to win an individual medal. But the success came at a price. Now, Dominique is helping to change the culture inside the sport she loves with the opening of the Dominique Dawes Gymnastics & Ninja Academy. On this episode, we talk about finding your greater purpose and defining success in your own terms.
Katty Kay on How to Build Your Confidence
“Confidence is the stuff that turns thoughts into action.”
Confidence. We all want it. We all need it. But how do we build it? Katty Kay is the author of The Confidence Code and The Confidence Code for Girls, and has spent years researching and studying the science of confidence. On this episode, we look at how a lack of confidence—particularly for women in the workplace—impacts our leadership, success and fulfillment. In this conversation, Katty shares the magic formula for confidence: act more, think less and be authentic.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas on Embracing Your Ambition
“Confidence is something…that you have to have in your backpack that you can take out when you need it.”
Priyanka Chopra Jonas is a multifaceted talent and global star with more than 55 films to her credit. She’s an actor, producer, investor and philanthropist. Now she’s adding author to her credentials with her new memoir, Unfinished. Priyanka made her American TV debut on the hit drama Quantico on ABC, making history as the first Indian-born actor to star as the lead of a TV drama series. She’s been featured on the cover of TIME magazine’s coveted “Time 100” issue and recognized as one of Forbes’ Most Powerful Women. On this episode, we talk about embracing your ambition, taking ownership of your career, and the power in choosing to reinvent yourself.
