My old friend and colleague Lesley Southwick Trask called emailed me from her new home in Portugal on the Camino Trail asking me if I would do an interview for her online radio show. I was all up for it - then she told me it was on women's leadership. That gave me pause to stop and think, you know, being a man.
It's not that I don't think men have a valuable contribution to the conversation on women's leadership ... it just made me stop and check what my contribution might be. How does my life and work help me think about women's leadership? What is my experience of working with women leaders and collaborators and as clients? The interview went some really interesting places - especially in the second half where we got into how experiences of oppression and prejudice lead to building an analysis that supports action that leads to real change. Anyway here's the interview, I really enjoyed the conversation with Lesley and hope you do too. Comments welcome as always.

Woman Who Lead is a program for and about women. We look at the changing landscape of women as leaders in our world and talk about perceptions concerning the rights of passage required to live the complex realities facing us in our multifaceted lives as professionals, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends and communities. This evolution of leadership shapes how we see, feel, believe and interact with the people who matter to us. Wherever you are in your journey, you’ll hear unexpected insights into how women lead – and a fresh take on what you thought you knew. Join us each week for Women Who Lead – and by the way, men are welcome, too.
