THE MOTHER OF COURAGE

EXPLORING FEMININE LEADERSHIP

The power of the feminine principal

I’ve been working with three (new) clients, all women, whose names shall be held in reserve, for now — but it’s interesting to contemplate the character of the feminine, when it comes to their leadership.

There is a balance — even in feminine organizations — between the masculine principles of management, and the intuitive instinct of the reactive response. Beyond that, there are more leaders, over time —
each founded by, and led by,
women that I’ve worked in partnership with.

Balance and courage.

I’m looking for heart, and searching for the character of the balance between the intuitive and feminine instinct of connection to their leading. Sometimes, it’s maternal; sometimes, it’s the softer touch, other times it’s brutally direct, slamming powerful and intensely driven.

FROM THE LATIN, THE BILANX, THE SCALE
A woman leader will be looking for balance, to family and the personal.
A woman will seek the answer — focused on a direct path to answer and resolution.

A woman will have heart.

Right now, I’ve got more women [than men] that I’m working with — both to teams, and to clients — that lets me ask the question about leadership and the feminine imperative.

I think about experiences, to that, working with leaders —
amazing women:

Dawn Mello,
Geraldine Stutz,
Annemarie Schimmel,
Laura Lendrum,
Diane Von Fürstenberg.

Bold, brilliant, remarkable. And more now.
Courage, passion, drive, balance.

I could use more of each, myself.

Women lead in a different way —
