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.

Guiding women and solving issues is my passion. Tackling things that can appear to be unsolvable but really are not. Being real with thoughts and feelings and issues, and especially as entrepreneurial women in leadership. In this, I have found that I'm not alone. Many women crave true connection that speaks to deeper things in their lives and, particularly, in their businesses.

If you’re a leader, and all this resonates with you, you’re in the right place. I want to personally invite you to consider joining one or more of the opportunities I offer. I believe there is so much good for you to do and so much good for you to have, and I would be honored to help you bring those things to life. To help and encourage you to invest in yourself, to step into your power, to embrace the truth that YOU are the asset!

“You have days where you really are stepping into your power and your voice. And you feel really good about it. And you have to look at, ‘Okay, what happened on that day?’  And then there are days where you really question what you’re doing and you don’t know. And you have to look at what’s going on on that day.” – Kris Plachy
