Women’s leadership expert, life coach, and host of the Heroine podcast, Majo Molfino, shares how design thinking can help women identify and dismantle the self-sabotaging myths that negatively impact their work, relationships, and wellbeing.
In her work as a women’s leadership expert and life coach, Majo Molfino found that many of her clients—ambitious, hard-working, high-achieving women—were victims of self-sabotaging tendencies. From birth, women have been conditioned to be “good girls”—taught that, by following the rules and doing the right thing, they would feel safe and valued and ultimately succeed. Instead, those ingrained lessons are holding them back at work and in relationships.
Drawing on the experiences of her clients (which include top managers, directors, and founders in Silicon Valley) famous women leaders, and her own life, Molfino explores this conditioning in-depth and identifies five disempowering myths—Rules, Harmony, Logic, Perfection, and Sacrifice—that affect women’s wellbeing. Molfino then uses her knowledge and expertise in design thinking to provide accessible tools and frameworks that will help readers identify and break free from the myths affecting their lives.
For the woman whose need for perfection inhibits taking action; who feels like she is always sacrificing her own needs for others; who has trouble speaking up for herself, Break the Good Girl Myth leads you on a process of self-discovery and healing and empowers you to share your gifts with the world.
