3-2-1 Women in Leadership: Chandra Behrenz

We asked our Catholic Women's Leadership Program Alumni to share their take on leadership and what it means to be a leader. Here is what leadership means to Chandra Behrenz (Program Participant 2022-23).

3 short ideas about women in leadership - from the program or elsewhere.
  1. Women need to be in leadership -- they bring empathy, compassion and emotional intelligence to the table that is unique to us as women.

  2. A manager looks to "do THINGS right"; a leader looks to "do RIGHT things" -- CWLP week 1.

  3. Women in leadership need not fear conflict -- we embrace it as a call for change.

2 quotes about women in leadership.
  1. "Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love." -- Mother Teresa

  2. "I'd rather regret the things I have done than regret the things I haven't done." -- Lucille Ball

1 question to ponder or encouragement for women in leadership.

I feel I need to overcome the subtle insecurities that sometimes prevent me from accepting leadership roles; this program has helped to change the way I think and to become more aware of myself and those around me.
