Charlene with Victoria Young on Mindful Leadership and Holistic Growth
"I conflicted the idea of working hard with being mean to myself. When I’m mean to myself, I did work hard. But you don’t need to be mean to yourself in order to work hard. You can achieve whatever you want by loving and treating yourself with kindness and compassion. I just wish the younger girl would have the opportunity to speak up for herself instead of being afraid and hiding away." Join exec coach Victoria and Charlene for a candid discussion on rediscovering what it takes to live a good life.
