An Inspiring Journey
The She's Got Drive podcast is a wonderful audio experience that takes you through the amazing journeys of some of the top black women leaders today. Shirley's style of connecting with her guest and getting to the core of what helps these women to succeed is powerful. A must listen for women of color and all women, and men too!
Rich & varied
I love the variety of experiences and backgrounds of the women on this podcast, and I have been inspired, and at times moved, by their stories.
Grace under Fire - my takeaway from interview with Paulette Rowe
Shirley's interview with Paulette Rowe of Barclays reminded me of watching Venus and Serena walk onto a tennis court and obliterate the newbies. Clearly Paulette has been killing it in her role as a highly accomplished exec., while Shirley deftly fed her the questions that made Paulette show up as the brilliant leader that she is. It left me wanting to hear another installment from both of them. Game, set, match.
