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.

When women have their own money (and lots of it), they have a voice and a choice. Through financial security, women are no longer indebted to anyone and can change the world.

A woman in the place of financial freedom and security can open and follow the path of getting everything else back as well: her life, her body, and her sanity!

Whether good or bad, a leader is one who inspires others to follow. Beyond this definition, however, there are deep questions. What, exactly, makes a leader powerful and effective? What is the element that goes beyond strategies, methods and competency and taps into hidden CEO magic?

A big component is the currency of energy. To understand the existence of the currency of energy and to use that is huge. It releases the magic we all need and want. That, in turn, releases what I hold to be the most important leadership characteristic. I invite you to join me as I explore and share that magical characteristic in this episode.

What You’ll Learn

  • The currency of energy
    • Magic, hope and the power of your mind
  • Making sense of the unseen
    • Spirituality
    • Leading and creating your business
    • Attracting followers
  • The most important leadership characteristic
  • When it’s hard
  • Choosing, no matter what comes

When people feel heard, they feel known, valued – and this is desperately needed in our modern culture. It is, perhaps, an even deeper need for women in powerful leadership positions. Others listen to accomplished, successful women for the express purpose of acquiring knowledge for their own gain. But who truly hears and sees the strong, powerful women, herself, who is dispensing said knowledge?

Out of this reality comes the wisdom that all need to be truly seen and heard. To not be is quite lonely. As women especially, we naturally possess the ability to listen and alleviate this need, if we are intentional to sharpen our skill. Leaders who do so will draw others to themselves who are at the same level, which is both desirable and mutually beneficial. Through this episode, I hope to ignite in you the desire to awaken the deep, pure magic of being a leader who truly listens and sees.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why we typically feel unheard
    • Pursuit of knowledge
    • Self-focused society
  • The magic of listening
    • Connect with people at the same level
    • Hold others in high value
    • Some proofs you’re truly listening
  • Cultivate being listened to yourself
  • Find people who see and hear you

Holding others accountable, especially employees, is one of the biggest and most common issues leaders face. Why is it so hard to get people to do what you want or assess performance and address issues? Why is holding people responsible so uncomfortable? I believe the core issue is this: We associate accountability with punishment.

Borne from the traditional masculine authority figure dynamic, we anticipate or associate a penalty exacted for an offense. We see this throughout society in various forms. And although punishment is a form of accountability, it isn’t the type needed nor desired in business. It is neither relevant nor applicable. What we need and desire from those we lead is ownership, obligation, and investment in the outcome. We need proper accountability. So how do we nurture that desired environment of personal responsibility? To start, we must disassociate punishment from accountability.

What You’ll Learn

  • Defining proper accountability
    • The origin of punishment within accountability
    • Emotions and personal investment triggers
  • Dirty vs clean accountability
    • Remembering the purpose of having employees
    • Divorcing emotion: loyalty, love and poor performance
  • Accountability is professional commitment
    • Being held to account for ability is rare
    • The uncomfortable place of being the first
    • Clear expectations, clear agreement, and not meeting them
  • Earning their way up? or earning their way out?
    • Neutral, not personal; steering clear of punishment
    • Navigate with maturity and addressing commitment
    • Sort your emotions before acting

We tend to be organized, especially as a society. Structured, linear thinking is expected and natural. This leads to us believing not only do we know what will happen but also why. And therefore, we believe we have control over things. This control thought-pattern then breeds a constant stream of how. How are we going to do this, how are we going to do that?

But what if not investing all our energy into the how frees us to lean into belief? Frees the magic of the creative process and fuels success for our vision? Let’s recapture the what we’ve been kissed with through embracing the magic of NOT knowing how.

What You’ll Learn

  • Why we lose the magic

    • Vision getting lost

    • Not knowing the how

  • An example from my life

    • Absolute clarity, without any idea of the how

  • Loving what you do releases the magic

    • Lean into joy

    • Commit to being more of you

  • The missing piece

    • How versus the energy of truly believing

    • More than just tactics

  • Worry robs us

    • Increased capacity

    • Release your need to know

  • Ways the how generates more easily

    • Nurture what you’ve been kissed with

    • Refuse anxiety triggers

    • Be healthy, thriving, open, free

    • Achieve through proper work

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.

Should you pay a year end bonus and give your employees extra? We expect certain results from the
people we hire, and we pay them a salary for those results. Not for their time. Not for their experience.
We can give them a bonus for just the simple joy of giving a gift or we can give them a bonus based on
their individual results/ extra work. Making payment commitments to employees is a serious decision to
make and should be greatly considered. A gift can turn into an expectation for your employees and a
headache for you. No matter how you decide to pay your people it is an important thing to consider.

What You'll Find in This Episode:

1. Having a consistent payment philosophy is key.
2. Bonuses are extra pay for extra results (or they’re gifts).
3. Paying a bonus out over a year is a good way to ensure that the bonus won’t be wasted.

You, as an entrepreneur, have to be an optimist, right? You take risks and believe that something will work out and you cultivate that vision to get your team through the frustration and on to the next thing. Being a leader (as you are), you set the tone for your team. So, why not set an optimistic one? 

What you’ll find in this Episode: 

  1. There is a lot we need to appreciate and not take for granted. 
  2. Entrepreneurs are resilient and optimistic. 
  3. Optimistic leaders hire optimistic employees. 
  4. Why believe in something awful when you can believe in something cool? 
Dec 13, 2021

Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s possible for ourselves, right? I think having visual representations of
things that evoke emotions in us can make our brains believe something exists in the world before it
actually does exist. That’s why having a vision board is so important. Not just for your business, but also
for you! Find some pictures in a magazine and rip ‘em out and place them where you can see them
every day! Act as if that’s what’s gonna be in your life one day and just dream, dream, dream! And one
day that dreaming will evoke reality!

What You’ll Find in this Episode:

1. You can evoke things in your life by visualizing them.
2. Being older doesn’t mean you can’t dream.

Part of our experience as a human is to feel discomfort. We struggle and often ask ourselves, “Why me? Why is this happening? What am I doing?” But none of these unexpected moments are stop signs. They are opportunities to make empowering choices and find what’s next for you. 

What you’ll find in this episode: 

  1. The magic of adversity can show you what you’re capable of. 
  2. Sit quietly with yourself, a trusted advisor, or someone who loves you and find the part of you that you’re having a hard time seeing right now. 
  3. Now it’s your chance to do that thing you’ve always wanted to do.

Welcome to Season TWO of the Leadership is Feminine podcast: CEO Magic. 
Let me ask you something, Gorgeous: What makes some leaders more successful than others? Skills and tactics can only get someone so far and attributing it to “just luck” dismisses your own power and inner-knowing.
What I have observed in my life and career as a leadership coach, is that influential women leaders have mastered certain currencies that others have not. The currency of discomfort. Belief. Self-understanding. In other words… CEO Magic. There’s always magic there for you to explore, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do this season. Let’s dive in, shall we?
What you'll find in this episode:
  1. An introduction to Season Two of the Leadership is Feminine podcast.
  2. The women who have made a significant impact on me and my life.
  3. Why I think it’s harmful to attribute someone’s success to “just luck.”
  4. The currencies that I believe magicians have mastered. (And how to tap into them yourself!)
Nov 22, 2021
I have some questions for you, Gorgeous. What if your growth, both personal and professional, is not dependent on your hustle? What if it's dependent on your rest?
As a woman entrepreneur, the best thing that you can do for yourself and others is to RELAX. As you nurture and seek your own joy, fulfillment, and fun, it WILL spill into your business. In this episode, the season one finale of Leadership is Feminine, I’m teaching you how to re-invent your relationship with rest.
What you'll find in this episode:
  1. As a woman entrepreneur, it’s important for you to CHOOSE rest. Consciously choose to believe that rest is equally (if not more) valuable to the performance, success, joy of your life and business.
  2. It’s not sustainable for your business to be dependent on your hustle.
  3. You have to be, at some point, willing to relax. And willing to unwind yourself from everything. Give yourself permission.

I hear you, love. You're drowning in content. In quote tiles, free downloadables, and 'how-to' guides. You don't need more voices; you need an ear. But not your girlfriend's or your partner's-they can't give you answers or solutions, they can only offer you their opinions, however well-intentioned.

Take a look at your business and at yourself as the leader of your business. Where are your pockets of opportunity? Have discernment, where do you truly need development and advisement? Be intentional about which problems you want to solve in your business and then invest in them.

In this episode of Leadership is Feminine, I'm teaching you how to reinvent your relationship with time so you can prevent and reduce overwhelm as a woman entrepreneur.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. A story about a client who realized the value of hiring talent for her business, rather than wasting time, money, and energy on more courses and masterminds for herself. Along with my own list of trusted coaches and advisors.
  2. The misconception that my premiere leadership coaching series, How to CEO, is just another online course, jam-packed with more content for you to consume, and not what it truly is: solving the problems that you're facing in your business faster by working with me and my team-like you have expert leadership coaches on retainer.
  3. You don't have to be 'taught' everything. You don't have to consume so much content, You just have to have someone who can listen to you and show you your own wisdom.
Nov 8, 2021

We've all had our fair share of challenges in 2021, haven't we? But, as women leaders, one of the biggest challenges we constantly face is believing in ourselves, in a world that constantly tells us that we're too emotional, too touchy, that we don't have a mind for business. 

But guess what, Gorgeous? I think your emotions are your SUPERPOWER. Let me tell you why.

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. As women leaders, we're insidiously taught that we're too emotional. And isolation among women leaders only compounds the problem.
  2. You feel emotions, but you aren't them.
  3. You are allowed to feel an emotion, or 12, or 67, during your day.
  4. Your emotions are your most powerful indicators of what you're telling yourself throughout the day.
Nov 1, 2021
What does it take to get a population of wounded warriors to rejoin the workforce? Beyond offering more benefits and higher pay, this opportunity requires us to re-examine the work environment that we're inviting them back into.
It’s going to be up to women to change and heal the world. And as a women entrepreneur, you know that change is what we're best at. We've already built businesses out of an archaic, patriarchal model. What if this is the time for us to revolutionize the world of work?

What you'll find in this episode:

  1. During the height of quarantine, many people were functioning but not really living. What we're experiencing now is an increase of people leaving the workforce, or not returning to it, because they have a backlog of living they need to do.
  2. Workers don’t want to go back to the world that they were in before, but a lot of employers have not made any changes to how their businesses operate.
  3. Great people always want to work for great leaders and always want to work for great companies.
  4. We’re relaunching and re-inventing. And as women, we can re-create environments for work in ways that we’ve never had before and in ways that can potentially heal a wounded world. Empower yourself by asking the question: what can you create that doesn’t exist?

  1. Women are incredible collaborators, listeners, and communicators.
  2. Some people are wanting to make this to-vaccinate or not-to-vaccinate thing a value-based issue.

  6. Stop questioning people's values and start holding people accountable to clearly defined behaviors.

Visionary women experience similar challenges. A visionary woman isn't just a visionary in her business, she's a visionary in her life. She often feels unseen, unheard, isolated and empty because visionaries are the people that others go to for help, support, and love.

So where does the visionary woman go to work out her worry? If you're a woman with a big dream on her heart and you know that there's so much more you want to do, but you feel frustrated and don't know how to manifest it all – you’re in the right place. Let’s talk about it.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. 1. What is a visionary woman?
  2. The day to day fussy stuff that keeps us small.
  3. Peter Senge – do we change our reality to achieve the vision, or do we lower that vision to accommodate a comfortable reality?
  4. Kris’s latest Hawaii retreat attendees.
  5. Stop wasting time around whether or not you should do it. Instead, focus on actually doing it!

Many of the women that I work with struggle when it comes to holding team members accountable. But the truth is that accountability is one of the greatest forms of self-care that you can create for yourself as a business owner—even when it’s difficult. When you’re not taking care of yourself, you’re not taking care of your business. Period.

In this week’s episode of the Leadership is Feminine podcast, we’re digging deep into the archives of my old podcast, How to Lead for Female Entrepreneurs, to bring you a relevant and timely episode that we thought worthy of another listen, given our theme of Leadership as Self-Care.

Let’s re-imagine what it means to hold others accountable, thus treating ourselves to more of the self-care that we deserve as women, business owners, and human beings.


  • What ‘accountability’ really is and when it can actually be a positive thing.
  • How a lack of accountability can lead to mental and physical exhaustion.
  • A client story that demonstrates the relationship between accountability and self-care.
  • The importance of creating clear expectations for your employees and showing them how to win.


  • The How to CEO program – 12 weeks of advising and coaching, all of the robust blueprint content, PLUS we complement everything with other special guest experts. So, if you are ready to join us, please go to You can learn all about it, and see all the things you need to see.
  • Come connect with me on Instagram here or on Facebook here.
  • Let me know what questions you have or what you think at
  • I’d be honored if you find this podcast of value if you would write a review. Then DM me on Instagram or Facebook or email me at and let me know it was you. Then we’ll send you the list of my favorite books!

Throughout my time as a coach, I’ve noticed a pattern of powerlessness when it comes to women. This is not only in their relationships with men, but also within themselves, and this general lack of power often leads to victimhood.

Another observation is that being an entrepreneur often pushes women to completely unexpected leadership growth which can cause challenges in their partnerships. Because in order to be the women needed to run their businesses, they have to stand differently in their relationships with their partners.

Let’s look at what it means to take back your power – to be the truest version of yourself, and how that can help you as both a person and a woman running a business.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  1. Different behaviors that can result from being a victim.
  2. About being a victim of your employees’ behavior.
  3. Fear around being powerful - around not being the victim, but to being the director of your life and your business.
  4. The story of the monkeys that were separated on an island by a huge wall.
  5. Affecting change for women around the world who are living in environments with little opportunity.
