961: MSNBC's Alicia Menendez, Author of The Likeability Trap
"I’m someone who cares very much about being well liked. It’s taken me a long time to get to the point where I can say that and own that because it feels lame to care as much as I do," says our guest Alicia Menendez, an award-winning journalist.
Does that sound familiar? Can you relate to that? Menendez speaks about this personally on the show and now in a new book called The Likeability Trap. Her book observes this fundamental paradox and empowers readers to let go of old rules and reimagine leadership rather than reinventing themselves.
