Leading Gracefully: How to Lean into Your Strengths for Impact


THE CHALLENGE

Women have a unique challenge in the workplace in the face of ingrained gender bias. Studies show that leadership is still equated with traditionally masculine qualities, like being aggressive, direct and dominating. However, when women choose to lead with this style, studies also show their likeability and effectiveness suffers.

This unique challenge is called the Double Bind where women are faced to choose between being seen as competent versus being liked. Traditional models of leadership actually work against women, which leads to a lack of confidence and lack of impact. This "Tightrope of Leadership" makes it difficult for women to find an authentic leadership style, and can lead to a lack of motivation, performance or opting out.

A NEW APPROACH FOR WOMEN

Studies show that when women embody feminine leadership, incorporating traits like empathy, collaboration and long-term thinking, they are better liked, more effective, and can improve organizational performance. In fact, according to a recent global survey, 66% who  responded preferred leaders who exhibited feminine leadership traits.

It's time that we revolutionize women's leadership training and offer a model of leadership more aligned with women's natural gifts & capacities.

Leading gracefully

This training is an introduction to the Feminine Leadership ModelTM developed by Monique Tallon. Designed to play to women's strengths, this revolutionary new approach offers women a chance to be more authentic, bringing their whole selves to the table.
