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.

Operations managers (or similar) often go into the work field and do great work for a CEO with training in things like operations, business management, and similar. And yet, they lack training in how to lead, how to manage people, and how to make decisions in challenging situations. As CEOs, it’s easy to overlook this integral component. What we think our management team ought to handle might be too narrowly focused or we might think they should intuitively know and effortlessly execute these parts of their job. But they don’t. 

That's why in this episode, I explore why CEOs should train up their management team. Bottom line, you can’t do it all. Nor should you. That makes it critical to the building of your business. Without a management team who can lead effectively, your business growth will eventually stall. The solution is to invest in quality leadership training for your top people. It’s an investment both in your business and in yourself.

“It doesn’t do any good for you to have all this great leadership management and insight and practices and tools if you then don’t have a right-hand who can do the same. Because the goal… is to get to the point where you’re really not necessary in the business.” – Kris Plachy
