Conscious Feminine Leadership

Standard

Part Two of a Two-Part Series on The Conscious Feminine

I hear talk these days of “Conscious Leadership,” at least on the web.  Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? But I think we need more than “Conscious Leadership” to save the world.  I think we need “Conscious Feminine Leadership.”

I recently posted my views on the Conscious Feminine. As a follow up, here’s a talk on Conscious Feminine Leadership that I also gave at my church. These are my views only.  Take what you like, and leave the rest.

I do invite you, however, to share your ideas on this.  Please consider posting one “gift” and one “challenge” based on what you heard.  Below the video, I’ve posted the responses the congregation gave after the service. I would love to hear your thoughts as well.

Spoiler alert: I do call out the system that has created the Angela Coreys of this world.  I feel obliged to speak my voice.  Please consider adding yours.

 

Gifts Challenges
Circle round [at the end] Not going for profit
To use the word “allow” in my leadership work To continue to “allow” both for myself and others
Tolerance Give it a wider voice
Forgiveness is a gift Letting go is a challenge
Base goals on “values”
Enoughedness Enoughedness
Gift and challenge is the same.  As a manager in a place constantly “evaluating,” to make the time to share freely and without judgement the beautiful gifts I see in each of my employees.
