Podcast Author Interview with Parissa Behnia
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm CDT
Join host, Regina Barr, and Parissa Behnia, for a 30 minute LIVE podcast as they talk about her book, Modern Badass: Tales from the Leadership Front.
Have you ever been told that you are “too much”? Too disruptive, too bold, too brash?
This book is a love letter to Modern Badasses. They are high-performing senior leaders and startup founders going eighty miles per hour in a forty-five mile per hour zone. Modern Badass will unlock the code to your success that will still allow you to be you while creating community, enrolling, and engaging others successfully.
These days, leadership is full of complexities whether you’re navigating from an audacious goal or trying to avoid that iceberg up ahead. In either case, Parissa’s clients choose her because she’s either sat in those seats or next to those seats often enough to know how it can feel to be alone in a crowded leadership room. She’s unafraid to speak truth to power to help propel them forward.
Parissa Behnia coaches C Suite and Senior leaders who are high will-high skill and have a growth mindset. In other words, they’re badasses who go 80MPH in a 45MPH zone but don’t always check to see if their team is strapped in or interested in going for the ride. These leaders are high value to a company but their edges may start to diminish their value.
She has taught entrepreneurship seminars and is a frequent speaker on strategy, leadership and entrepreneurship. Parissa is a Certified Professional Coach, holds a BA from Northwestern University and MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business. You can learn more about Parissa at sixensestrategy.com.
