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.

Are you building a business with intention? Have you thought about the kind of culture you want to cultivate in the workplace? This week on Leadership is Feminine, host Kris Plachy, talks with her guest, Dr. Camysha Wright about what it looks like to be a practicing physician and how to thoughtfully create a workplace with grace and empathy.

Dr. Wright is a board certified otorhinolaryngologist, otherwise known as an ENT. She serves on the board of governors for the Florida Society of Otolaryngologists, and operates her own practice for going on 10 years. She is also a published author who recently released Breathe Easy: An Overview of Allergies and the Unified Airway.

In their discussion, Dr. Wright discusses the importance of meeting patients where they’re at and how her book aims to provide a simple resource for patients to be able to identify what they are experiencing when it comes to allergy and inflamation-related illnesses.

Dr. Wright also details her experience of what it was like to build a business. “As a physician… I would say that we get a lot of training about medicine, about how to save a life… but you don’t get any really direct guidance on how to run a business or how to lead your team.” She stresses the importance of intentionality, respect for employees, and building a rock-solid team. She's all about creating turnover opportunities for growth and attracting top talent with a culture of empathy and grace.

So, whether you're a young female doctor stepping into your own practice, or just keen on some top-tier leadership advice, this episode is packed with gems to elevate your game. Tune in to Leadership is Feminine and let's make leadership more inclusive, intentional, and empowering together!
