As the founder of a movement dedicated to bringing down walls and opening doors for high-achieving executives to share their struggles – and their advice – Michelle knows how scary it can be to reveal your inner self in this way.
As the founder of The Truth Behind Our Titles®, Michelle realized she needed to be the first to share her story, she started with the inaugural event in New York City last October, and then, in a much larger scale, with Women You Should Know.
Michelle believes when more of us are able to share the stories of our personal challenges that have been the undercurrent of our careers and shaped who we are, the better able we will be to fully integrate ourselves in the corporate workplace, and The Truth Behind Our Titles® movement is dedicated to helping us all embrace our whole selves and bring our whole selves to the corporate workplace.

Sheryl Sandberg’s openness about the recent loss of her husband resonated with our movement’s core intent. She could have put on a brave face and a smile, shielded the world from her reality and simply hid the pain. Instead, she inspired everyone by openly and honestly sharing her story.
Sheryl’s willingness to so courageously open her heart to the entire world and share the pain and journey of so unexpectedly losing her husband, Dave, has empowered all of us to recognize the humanity and power of vulnerability. As we continue to encourage our readers to share their truths about the challenge or adversity that is part of your corporate journey, we are indebted to Sheryl for sharing hers.
