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.

In this episode of Leadership is Feminine, Kris Plachy dives into the power of intentionality in achieving our goals and becoming effective leaders. She emphasizes the importance of being intentional about our actions and decisions, especially when it comes to leadership and building successful teams.

Kris discusses how many entrepreneurs excel at learning new skills and strategies to grow their businesses but often struggle when it comes to applying these same strategies for leading their teams. She encourages listeners to reassess their priorities and focus on the core reasons behind their goals, rather than simply making a list of tasks to complete.

Throughout the episode, Kris shares personal insights into her new year’s goals, particularly in prioritizing self-care, and how she is enacting short sprints in order to achieve her desired outcomes. And that by focusing on just a few small tasks, it not only simplifies goal-setting, but also increases productivity and energy, enabling individuals to focus on other important areas of their lives.

You can't create an intentional future by continuing to take unintentional action. And it’s not enough to say you want something. We have to design the framework that gets you what you want.

Key Takeaways From This Episode

  1. Importance of Intentionality: The power of setting intentions, especially during the start of the year
  2. What It Means to Create Intentional Action: Being intentional requires confronting truths, making commitments, and taking steps
  3. Avoid “Winging It” in Leadership: Intentional leadership is crucial for the success of a business, much like the intentional learning and efforts put into other business aspects
  4. Overcommitting to Goals: Focusing on a few key areas at a time can be more effective than setting too many resolutions, and trying to do them all at the same time
  5. Goals Are Achieved Through Frameworks: Go beyond surface-level intentions, and set yourself up for success by creating a systematic approach for achieving desired outcomes
  6. Shifting Away From Willpower: Reaching goals is not merely about willpower, but about maintaining intentional actions that align with the desired destination
