Leadership modules today are influenced heavily by an approach to productivity and efficiency that became popular during the Industrial Revolution. The confluence of capitalist and patriarchal thinking has left us in a situation where our value is determined by our economic contributions to the workplace. Where 'women's work' and women's ways of being - collaborative, nurturing, rhythmic, intuitively guided - are disrespected and significantly undervalued.
In this module we consider how that influence is affecting the way you work, the assumptions you make about leadership, and the way you engage with your body, the earth and your community.
Two hundred and fifty years later, it's time to evolve.
Week 1: Feminine and masculine leadership values
Women have been in the workforce in great numbers since the 1960s and since that time we've been expected to behave like men to progress in our careers. But it doesn't need to be that way. There's a different way to lead and that's what this week is all about.
We explore what feminine values and masculine values look like and how they can be integrated to create a whole leader. In this context 'feminine' and 'masculine' isn't code for women and men. Both women and men are informed by the feminine and the masculine and you'll investigate specifically how that plays out for you.
Week 2: Rising the feminine
In order to come to a place of healthy integration, we must first release unhealthy notions of feminine values and approaches as being weak. Values like collaboration and connection, ease and receptivity, allowing rather than pushing, as well as how to utilise your capacity to receive intuitive guidance.
You'll release inner judgment and internalised self hatred and disrespect that creates terrible disharmony in all women's bodies and lives.
Week 3: The healthy masculine
In patriarchal societies masculine values dominate our work and home lives. In this week's content we'll explore how that has affected our relationship with time and how that has us all madly creating to do lists, never feeling like we have enough time, pushing and hustling to get somewhere/anywhere, and all the while, feeling deeply dissatisfied.
This week we learn have we can step into a different experience. One where masculine and feminine values interact with, and support one another, in a harmonious way.
Week 4: Circles not lines
In week 4 we release another archaic leadership approach; working solely from a place of linear thinking and doing. Linear thinking and doing keeps us on a treadmill toward a goal post which is constantly moving.
Instead of taking this approach to your career, your life, running a business, developing a project, you'll learn about circle thinking and doing. You'll learn how to understand progress less as an approach which takes you from point A to point B and instead, moves you in an ever deepening circular motion. You'll learn how to work in harmony with the natural rhythms of each initiative, you'll transform your interactions with those around you, and your level of satisfaction with your life will increase exponentially.
