It’s Time for a New Discussion on “Women in Leadership”

It’s Time for a New Discussion on “Women in Leadership” | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it
Shift the focus away from fairness and equality, and toward opportunity and profit.
Belinda MJ.B's insight:

Education is key when we talk about gender equality at work but most importantly women want to own their feminine leadership.

 

Women executives and leaders through the process realize very often that they learned and anchored the gender clivage in their mindset more than they were actually experiencing it. By challenging their beliefs and their assumptions they eventually created more advancements opportunities and greater success in their career.

Loneliness at the top is a common reason executives hire an executive coach. Women feel even more lonely because they feel isolated as well by the fact they are a few at the top of organizations. #WomenLeadership #coaching #loneliness

These shortcomings, however, should not hinder you from performing your duties well. Rather, they should be considered challenges that will shape you to become a better example to other employees.

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, November 24, 2013 9:58 AM

It is true...at the end of the day, if Leaders are to become REAL and Authentic, they will be vulnerable before others (those they serve) and will have to come to terms with their own limitations.  In fact, awareness and acceptance of who we really are provides the essential ingredients to action and achievement in the Leadership Enrichment LIFE-cycle.  Never stop learning, changing, growing and leading...mostly about yourself as a leader and about the impact you are having on others.

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It!

The End of Leadership--at Least As We Know It! | Global Leadership Coaching by Equanimity Executive | Scoop.it

America is currently facing a crisis of leadership in business and in government. Yet at the same time – participation in leadership seminars and programs has never been higher. The leadership industry, with many of  its roots in America, is now a $50 billion industry. 

 

Kellerman explains that the current state of leadership is no better understood or produced than it was 40 years ago and that followers are becoming more and more disenchanted by those who are leading them.


Though the leadership industry thrives, leadership in practice is declining in performance.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 11:33 AM

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Deborah Verran's comment, March 29, 3:13 PM
Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability

Belinda MJ.B's insight:

"Gender expectations are so ingrained that defying them can come at personal cost. Aggressive and competitive women can be called everything from harsh to hormonal. Men — as well as women — who are empathetic and responsive can be called soft. Only the tough guy boss seems to get a pass: he’s excepted, even respected, because he fits our long-conditioned ideals of how take-charge leaders lead."

Why Your Critics Aren't The Ones Who Count

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 4:15 AM

Excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 by Theodore Roosevelt.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
