To Bee or Not to Bee

Episode 75: To Bee or Not to Bee

The Queen Bee Syndrome. To some, this means Beyonce. To others, the leader of the group. Hear Dr. Melissa Briggs-Phillips hit on what it is and how it impacts women today. Melissa explains why she dislikes the word “syndrome” and her reasoning. She compares research with her own insights as a woman. With experience teaching a Psychology of Women class at the Ohio State University, Melissa’s well-versed on The Queen Bee Syndrome. She uses a theoretical lens that looks at research and facts all while using real-life experiences. And it makes sense!

After completing her Ph.D., Melissa spent 15 years providing leadership on complex projects before opening her clinical practice and organizational speaking full-time. She’s a “ruthless optimist” that believes innovation happens at the intersection of divergent disciplines.
