Designed for women, this workshop addresses the importance to women of being able to leverage both masculine and feminine strengths — and the “tightrope act” that this requires. To succeed as business leader, research confirms, women have to demonstrate masculine strengths. They have to have “grit” — be confident, assertive and decisive. BUT it is easy to overdo this and be called that “B-word.” Or women can become “honorary men” or lose their authentic selves. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the rewards and the risks of shifting along the masculine-feminine continuum. They will learn how to leverage both masculine and feminine strengths — and remain authentic.
- An understanding of the gravitational pull of the primarily masculine definition of leadership in our culture.
