Women, Wealth, and Power: The Emerging Paradigm

Women, Wealth, and Power: The Emerging Paradigm | Feminomics - gender balanced leadership | Scoop.it

Let me make one thing very clear: I’m not trying to typecast genders or suggest one superior to the other. There are plenty of women operating in the Male Model, while increasingly, men are embracing the Feminine Formula.

What I am describing is an emerging paradigm shift, allowing both men and women the freedom to choose between the historical norm and what’s becoming a clear, increasingly preferred, leadership style. And we have women to thank for this shift.

“Today the old style command-and-control leadership has given way to a new approach to leadership.” says leadership expert David Gergen, a Harvard professor and former advisor to four presidents, in his introduction to Enlightened Power: How Women are Transforming the Practice of Leadership.

“When we describe that new leadership, we employ terms like consensual, web-based, caring, inclusive, open, transparent—all qualities that we associate with the ‘feminine’ style of leadership.”

Leadership with Heart & Soul Gentle Giant Moving

Leadership with Heart & Soul Gentle Giant Moving | Feminomics - gender balanced leadership | Scoop.it

One among many examples of leadership based on both masculine (tough-love marine) and feminine (caring, nurturing, empathy) values.

Women don't have the monopoly of the Feminine Archetype!

Larry O'Toole says Gentle Giant Moving is a people and leadership development company providing high-end customer service.

Larry O'Toole understands that when customers are difficult, it's often because they are going through something really hard. So the employees of his moving company learn not only how to pack trucks but also how to unpack the contents of the human heart. "You don't know what kind of stress someone is dealing with," says O'Toole, an Irish immigrant who is imposing of stature and soft of speech. "Diagnosed with a terrible illness. Death in the family. Divorce. You have to be able to read your customer. You see what they need, and you give it to them."
