CEO, Simmons University Institute for Inclusive Leadership

Leadership expert Susan MacKenty Brady sat down with Andrew Keen, host of the daily KEEN ON podcast, shortly before the publication of her Wall Street Journal best-selling book, Arrive and Thrive: 7 Impactful Practices for Women Navigating Leadership. They took a deep dive into the book’s practices and explored what it means for women to thrive in leadership. Susan shared thoughtful insights into why it’s critical that women leaders understand when they are at their best selves — and how to return there.

Arrive and Thrive comes to life in the Institute for Inclusive Leadership’s newest certificate program for women, Leading with Impact: Essential Practices for Women. As faculty lead, Susan draws on the wisdom she gained while writing the book, as well as her latest thinking on how women can increase their positive impact as leaders.
