Strong women should not crush weaker women: How do you do it?

4 years ago

I use to have a job that had a lot of prestige. . a great title. . offered me a great opportunity. But the lady I worked for cared more about making a dollar than she did about the people who worked for her. She would give you feedback that was honest, but it cut like a knife. 

I learned so much from that lady about running a business. . taking ownership of a product. . adhering to a scope. . providing quality work. . getting work done on time and under budget. 

But when I left that company, I promised myself that I would not be a leader who crushes the women around her.

Here's where I am today; trying to not make my co-workers cry at work. I continue to struggle with this issue.
