Soul & Science : #50: BBC Correspondent Katty Kay | Rethinking Power


This week, for our 50th episode, we’re doing something a little different. We're joined by the US Special Correspondent for BBC Studios Katty Kay to discuss power and the joy and fulfillment we can all find when we make an impact.

Katty is an award-winning journalist and the co-author of several New York Times bestselling books including The Confidence Code, and most recently, The Power Code.

In today’s episode, you’ll learn:

  • Women’s instincts have a special kind of power. Katty argues that women's inherent qualities, such as empathy, collaboration, and emotional intelligence, are assets that can revolutionize the way we approach leadership
  • We should rethink power all together. The pandemic changed the way we think about work and flexibility, challenging the traditional definition of power.
  • Stay optimistic. A more equitable distribution of power is possible and by fostering a mindset of optimism and possibility, we can create a future where power is a force for good.
