10. Charmagne Mazhindu on redefining success, trusting yourself and the power of vulnerability

leadership interview self-care success vulnerability Jun 15, 2023



In the second Real Leaders conversation, I’m joined by Charmagne Mazhindu, the Regional Marketing Lead for Sub Saharan Africa at Amazon Web Services. We explore how our definitions of success change as we grow and evolve in our careers and how much of the safety that we seek in financial success and career progression should really be found in ourselves. Charmagne shares how much who we are from within shapes our sense of fulfilment in our careers, our ability to build followership how readily we can make bold moves for our businesses and ourselves. This rich conversation was the definition of soul food.

Topics discussed:

  • Redefining success as we advance
  • How to rebound from failure
  • How we can feel safe and secure in an uncertain world
  • The power of vulnerability to unlock self-acceptance and courageous leadership
  • The self-care practices that support her to show up fully at work

The Real Leaders series explores the person behind the leader, what’s shaped who they are, their success and what leading abundantly means to them and looks like in practice. I hope these stories inspire you and make you feel more connected to other leaders like you.
