EP203 Lolly Daskal on How to Lead from Within
Lolly Daskal is the CEO of Lead From Within, a New York Times best-selling author, and one of the most sought-after executive leadership coaches in the world who has worked with executive leaders in hundreds of companies across 14 countries. Her proprietary leadership program has helped leaders enhance their performance to make meaningful impacts in their companies, their lives, and the world.

Lolly joins me today to share her story and provide practical strategies on how fierce feminine leaders can explore their leadership gaps to step into their power and lead from within. She also shares ways for you to leverage your “impostor syndrome” to improve your leadership skills and describes her “leadership archetypes”.



“Striving for perfection is striving to fail.” – Lolly Daskal



Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:


  • Why discipline and routines are important to her
  • The relationship between being present and being disciplined
  • How being disciplined can give you a sense of grounding and expansiveness
  • Balancing the desire to learn, improve, and enhance with the idea that “I’m not broken.”
  • How biographies can be more impactful than self-help books
  • Her definition of a great leader
  • Overcoming challenges when a concept becomes a reality
  • Her leadership archetypes
  • What the “R.E.T.H.I.N.K. System” is and how it can help you become a better leader

How to Leverage Your Impostor Syndrome:


  1. Stop comparing yourself to others.
  2. Ask yourself: “What did I do today that was better than yesterday? What will I do tomorrow that will be better than today?”
  3. Understand the distinction between perfection and excellence.
