Episode 17- Tiffany Dufu on The Myth of Doing It All

Tiffany Dufu

Once the poster girl for doing it all, today’s guest Tiffany Dufu is now sharing a powerful message to women: Drop The Ball. As Chief Leadership Officer of Levo and part of Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In launch team, Tiffany’s life work is to advance women and girls. If we can learn to let go of perfectionism, she says, we can achieve more by doing less and achieve better work-life integration. On this episode, Tiffany shares the power in shrinking your to-do list, how to delegate with joy, and what happens when we focus on our most meaningful work. Her new book, Drop The Ball, is out now.
