SUBSCRIBE   Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Amazon Music | Stitcher

If you’re looking for inspiring and practical ways to deepen your leadership, then this episode of the Lead with Love podcast is for you.

In this episode, I get cozy with my friend and women’s leadership coach, Nisha Moodley where we talk about open hearted leadership, boundaries, motherhood and business, and channeling anger for the greater good.

Nisha is a women’s leadership coach and the founder of Global Sisterhood Day. Her work is driven by a belief in the immense power of sisterhood to help us expand our individual and collective freedom.

She works with women who feel a deep calling to offer their hearts and hands in service to humanity, and through their work together, her aim is to support them in embracing their innate brilliance, expanding their freedom, embodying their leadership, and aligning their actions with their inner truth.

Her work blends years of interest and study in spirituality, holistic health, coaching, and Family Systems. She’s been a coach for 10 years, leading mastermind groups, online courses, and over 30 retreats around the world.

To me leading with love is having an open heart and having the courage to both give and receive.
