#052: Looking back on "Being 10% Braver" with Vivienne Porritt OBE

#052: Looking back on

Insights: Increasing your impact.

What would be possible in your mission, if you were just 10% braver? How would that influence the scale of your dream, the scape of your thinking, or the scope of who you are being as you lead your mission forward?

Imagine the difference that could make.

For Vivienne Porritt, that moment came as part of the evolution of WomenEd. The recognition of the difference when one person is 10% braver, AND the compound impact of the whole community of women choosing to be 10% braver too.

Looking back on our conversation, I reflect on what we can learn from Vivienne’s experience of being 10% braver: from creating a fairer and equitable experience of education for every child to feel valued, through to exposing the inequities experienced by women in education so that women leaders can maximise their fullest potential in creating the best possible outcomes for children, from nursery to university.

If you’re ready to be 10% braver in how you show up in your mission, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
