Episode 15: LeadHERship Development with Dr. Lori Baker-Schena

Today, we’re joined by Dr. Lori Baker-Schena, co-founder of LeadHERship Consortium. She is a leadership consultant and professional speaker who works with individuals and businesses to achieve high levels of excellence, productivity and profitability. Dr. Baker-Schena brings to her clients 35 years as a healthcare public relations and marketing consultant, and 25 years as a tenured university professor teaching public relations and journalism. Dr. Baker-Schena holds a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and a MBA from California State University, Northridge, and a doctorate in Organizational Leadership from the University of La Verne.

A dear friend to Solo PR Pro, Dr. Baker-Schena’s turn toward working as a leadership consultant and professional speaker came about six years ago when she moved out of her comfort zone as a tenured professor at California State University, Northridge to properly pursue her dream of becoming a motivational speaker.

Noting a lack of leadership training specific to women, she and colleague Sabine Liedel co-founded LeadHERship Consortium in the summer of 2018. “A company devoted to helping women become successful leaders, focusing on solution-driven strategies that combine joy, empowerment and hard work,” LeadHERship Consortium offers in-house training, keynote presentations and events on the key areas women must face to grow as leaders:

  • Stop beating yourself up with negative self-talk.
  • Own your talents and strengths and trust that everything else will fall into place.
  • Having support and mentorship of other women is key.
  • Know your value and learn how to communicate it in a way that people hear you.
  • Replace work-life balance with work-life flexibility.
  • Live in the solution, not the problem.
