Ever since the industrial revolution, the business world has defined successful leadership behaviors as those based on masculine traits such as being task-focused, negotiating hard, taking charge, being rational at all costs. Until recently, more feminine behaviors such as building relationships, caring for employees and coaching people by listening and asking questions were dismissed as unnecessary or even unproductive. Therefore, you may have mastered these highly masculine traits and have lost touch with your more feminine side. You may get great business results most of the time, but feel disappointed to receive feedback such as ‘You are too bossy/ too aggressive/ dominating/ controlling.’ You likely also feel that you hold the burden in private relationships and have to “wear the pants in the family”. Are you tired of this?
What is the problem with using masculine behaviors and very few feminine ones? The world is changing! Values like transparency, sharing-economy, agile innovation are sweeping the marketplace and wiping out old-fashioned masculine-behaving companies (think Lehman Brothers, Enron). The companies who are thriving are the ones who are successfully fostering creativity, employee well-being, and less rigid hierarchy (think Google, Zappos)… these are feminine traits! Those of you who understand how to tap into and feel comfortable using those behaviors in your leadership are the ones who will be leaders in the new economy. Unless you become able to use both the traditionally masculine behaviors as well as the feminine ones, you are going to feel lost and confused about why your career seems to have hit a plateau.
Do you feel like you are highly productive, at the expense of your relationships and health?
Are you endlessly taking the lead and getting frustrated when others aren’t similarly pro-active?
Are you constantly making progress in work and life, never taking a real break?
Do you find yourself over-analyzing everything, unable to let go?
Do you often find that you ‘take it all on’, and no one is around to help?
Do you ‘have it all’ yet have the nagging sensation that something is missing from your life?
If your answer is yes to any of these, join us for our 7th run of Whole Leadership on March 9-10 in Zurich! This is your opportunity to re-discover your authentic feminine side and integrate it to become a stronger leader!
Whole Leadership helps you recognize your tendencies and default behaviors, and to become conscious about how to bring both masculine and feminine qualities into leadership when they are needed. This is in the interest of being able to access the whole range of behaviors and to bring more balance into your leadership and life.
This program is designed for women and is open to men, too. :-)
Whole Leadership is a 2-day experiential learning program with 2 leaders and a maximum of 12 participants to ensure plenty of personal attention and coaching. You will also be offered a special price for a package of one on one follow-up coaching sessions with either Arzum or Margo, if you choose to anchor your learning over the long-term.
It takes place in Coaching Without Borders rooftop offices with a panoramic view over the rooftops of Zurich West. http://coachingwithoutborders.com/venue/
