Watch, Listen & Read - For Top Leaders Who Dare To Be Human & Real and Who Know That Leading Others Starts With Themselves
Wow, what a statement! And is it even true?
Right – let’s clarify a few things upfront:
So what IS this article about?
In a way about my journey. As a leader AND woman.
How I arrived where I am now and the learning and epiphanies on the way.
How is this relevant for you?
I'm currently reading a book which deals with a topic I'm exploring: how different men and women "tick" and what that means for communication and relationships inside and outside of the business environment.
It actually opens up a completely new aspect for, but not exclusively, leadership.
The book provided me with some insights which made sense to me, nothing revolutionary though.
Until I came to a part of the story where the author describes the different ways of thinking.
The masculine or male way - single focused.
And the feminine or female way - the brain goes in all kinds of directions.
Btw - this is not necessarily about gender...but often is...more in the podcast.
The fact is though - it impacts communication big time.
I clearly noticed that when the author describes the typical dynamic as a result of the differences. I had to laugh out loud - not necessarily because it was funny, but because I felt that she was talking about me (and some of the men in my life).
