The content creator and influencer Just Ivy disclosed how she felt when she realized her coworkers did not enjoy working with her.
She narrated how when she first started working she thought that being harsh to her subordinates meant that she was a woman in power.
Ivy thought that being a boss was being rude to people or giving people work that she did not want to do or just being rough in general.
"I used to think that to be a female boss, a woman to exert your power it means to be mean to people," she said.
The influencer used to emulate horrible bosses because at the time she thought that was how things were supposed to be.
When an anonymous exercise was done at her workplace it was revealed that a lot of her coworkers did not like working with her.
"Going into my first job we did this anonymous exercise where everybody wrote down anonymously what is it that they think about their colleague, and it was in that time that I was humbled because it felt like I was punched in the gut, I was humbled when I realized that nobody enjoyed working with me," explained Ivy.
Over time there was change and growth for the influencer, she started to embrace her soft side.
"Ladies I am here to tell you that I'm starting to learn once more about owning your soft power, you don't have to be masculine for you to be powerful."
The content creator continued by saying how she started working on her behavior when she realized there is so much power in one's femininity.
"Once I realized that people did not want to work with me I started moving from the attitude of a boss to the attitude of a leader and leading from the back," she voiced.
Change does not happen within a day.
As she is still learning how to be a better person at the workplace she sometimes finds herself being a little rough but she owns up to it and apologizes.
"Self-awareness was key in my journey towards becoming a better person and thus a better leader."
