Are you taking on the shape of a leader?
One thing I hear frequently is that people often take on the role as leaders, but continue to behave like managers. It is important for you to know: there is a difference between simply managing and leading. What is now required from you is a leadership presence so that people sit up and take notice of your efforts, and will want to join you in your vision!
As a leader, you not only need to know the what, but the how of leadership.
Here is an opportunity, as a new leader, to boldly embody your shape of leadership.
We will provide guidance for what it means to be a grounded and embodied leader, especially in these complex times of change and transformation. It is an opportunity to unlearn old models of success that no longer serve us, and truly forge ahead in ways that are authentic and in alignment with our greater and collective purpose.
Who am I, and how can I help
As a leader within Fortune 500 environments, I have personally lead multiple global cross-functional initiatives that have required something beyond simply managing – it is carrying a purpose that is bigger than myself. It is carrying a message and forging ahead in a way that is compelling and invites others in to join in on the effort.
As an Executive Coach, Educator and Champion, I have also spent much time across the table of women leaders who have been asked to take on a bigger version of themselves. Some have shared stories of imposter syndrome. Some others have told tell me that they are plagued with many “voices” in their head about ‘how to be’ a leader in their respective organizations.
With so many competing ideas on how to be a leader, how do you locate the voice that is authentic to you?
