Today’s guest believes growth requires both vision and action.

Her goal is to change the trajectory of people's lives and careers for the better. She works with C-level executives and other senior leaders who want to expand their professional and personal capacity; tackle bigger, more complex challenges; grow as humans so they can grow as leaders; to cross new thresholds of performance.

As an expert in executive coaching and career development, she coaches C-suite executives and other senior leaders across the globe. In addition to several venture-backed startups, her clients have included Clorox, DocuSign, Dropbox, and Google. She is a regular contributor to Harvard Business Review and Forbes.com.

Please join me in welcoming Rebecca Zucker.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is caring enough to step up.”
  • why she believes empathy is a huge part of leadership.
  • the restrictions she grew up with for being born female.
  • not being taken seriously as a woman in finance, including transferring to an international office within the company.
  • how she used her network of university and business school alumni all pre-internet.
  • how she navigated France as an ex-pat when she transferred to an investment banking career.
  • her year off, living in France, and becoming a gig worker, and how that led her to entrepreneurship.
  • how she began her coaching business in earnest after her current job was going under.
  • how she and her business partner, Heather, complement each other in business.
  • why she enjoys mentoring people and is always on the lookout for quality talent.
  • how she nurtures and sustains the outer levels of her network.
  • how she accomplished getting published consistently in Harvard Business Review.
  • what she’s looking forward to in the next year.
