Welcome to The Defiant Leader! My name is Kate, and I was inspired to create this blog by my experience facilitating leadership programs for a governmental organization. I recently quit my job due to frustrations with workplace culture and management behaviors, something I think many people can relate to. I believe it’s important to create space where we can have some honest conversations about leadership and management, the skills and qualities that lead to effective and supportive leadership, and the oppressive systems that prevent everyone from having not just a seat, but also a voice, at the table.
My favorite thing about training others was how much I learned in the process. I look forward to learning a great deal as a part of this new journey.
