Leadership is Feminine

For most women, when we are invited to study leadership the teachers, scholars, authorities and models are primarily… men. We are indoctrinated from the time we are born that men are the leaders and that natural male characteristics are the strengths you must also possess to be a good leader. Powerful. Strong. Authoritative. Direct. Assertive. Decisive. These and so many more are attributes that are typically associated with the male model of a leader. And so, for the better part of the last one hundred years as women have made their way into the fold, in a variety of leadership roles, we have learned and studied to walk the way of a men to achieve success. Women dismiss their own knowing because we’ve been so indoctrinated in male leadership models. We dismiss what we know for what others tell us to be and how to be seen. There is another way to lead. To be in alignment. To not feel like an imposter. It’s time for the reimagining of leadership. That’s not to disparage any of the progress that has come before us. Progress is progress. For those of us who stand in the footsteps of the women who came before us we are here because of their courage, bravery and resilience. I wonder instead if women equally looked to the characteristics they learned from their mothers for leadership. I wonder if we were taught to lean on different qualities to drive success. I wonder what might happen then? The traditional qualities of mothering are communication, nurturing, listening, strength, support, grace, and yes… love. What if to be the best leader you can be as a woman, you integrated the best of both? This is how women will stand with integrity in their role as leaders. As women, we can be assertive, direct, powerful, and authoritative but we need not only rely on those attributes for success. After 25 years of watching and studying leaders, I can tell you that for sure many traditional male attributes are effective in the short run, but they typically only serve a few. Whereas, when leadership is feminine. When the leader possesses the strengths of femininity and grace the results are for all. This podcast is my like my gentle request and invitation to my fellow female leaders that we reclaim the world leadership as one that is a feminine definition. That we continue to work with all of our allies to build organizations and systems that include more support, collaboration, grace and communication. And that we do so not because we are uncomfortable with the more traditional male-dominating models, but because we truly do know that leadership is a feminine strength and attribute. And the world needs more of us leading. Now more than ever.

Do you truly celebrate your business wins? Or do you tend to just blow right past them and move on to the next goal? Yes, it’s important to look forward, make plans, to do all the things to move yourself and your business forward. But might I suggest one additional but ultra-important thing to do? Let me encourage you to do what feels good. That is, celebrating yourself and your successes!

As humans, we create things first in our minds. Magical things happen when we imagine them, then make them reality. Through that process, we feel. And great things come to us through feeling. That’s why giving space to celebrating, leaning into accomplishment, and allowing pride, joy and wonder to manifest will foster even more success. Celebrating your success breeds more success!

What You’ll Learn

  • Make your list of magic
    • What are the wins you didn’t roll around in this past year?
    • Feel your wins deeply
  • Explore why one success really hit you but another did not
    • Is there unnecessary guilt or shame?
    • Are you mistakenly building an entitlement environment?
  • Stop. Start. Continue.
    • Thoughtfully choose
    • Create from feelings
    • Connect with feelings and allow yourself to feel…
      • Wise, competent, brave
      • Loved, worthy, valued
  • Trust your own wisdom
    • Honor your success
    • Use visuals to hold that space

Happy New Year! How are you?! I love the energy whenever the new year comes around! It’s a great
time to pause and focus on your goals, intentions, whatever, right? So, I thought that, following the
theme of CEO Magic, I would do a different kind of episode that would encourage you (as female
entrepreneurs) to invest in yourselves and your wisdom. I saw that there were no affirmations for
female entrepreneurs so I thought I would create some for you. Take from these what resonates as you
launch into this new year.

What You'll Find in This Episode

1. Information about the upcoming cohort of How to CEO, the next Advanced Leadership Coach
certification class, and the Sage CEO program.
2. Affirmations that will empower you into the new year.
