Sam applies an integrated philosophy to bridge the gap between the psychological and social aspects of being a person and a leader. She combines leadership theory, gender research, positive psychology, sociology, and neuroscience (and bit of spirituality for good measure) to create a balanced, holistic approach. As a result, her no-nonsense discussions on leadership honors male and female leaders alike and encourages accountability while maintaining compassion for others.
