Leaning into Our Dormant Power through Feminine Leadership

It’s great when I hear from women in the business/entrepreneurial world that resonate with my message. Learn Savvy’s Jen Aubert was one of those women who “get it” and I was thrilled when she invited me as guest on the new Learn Savvy podcast, where we spoke about the dormant power that lies in every woman, which I speak about in my book, Leading Gracefully. Having accessed my own “dormant power” many years ago while climbing a 40 foot tree and subsequently jumping out of said tree (while harnessed, of course!), I realized that this is a unique gift that women possess, yet many are either unaware of it or don’t tap into it as much as they could be.

This power lies in our second chakra, and is where our creativity and sexuality resides. It’s where life is created, but it’s also an immense source of power for women. But because of all the body shaming, objectification, and pressure to conform, our relationship with this part of our bodies is usually one that brings up a lot of shame, pain or even embarrassment. Rarely do we view it as a source of great creativity or power that we can utilize to our advantage. And yet tapping into it myself, I realized that when we do, we are much more tuned into the bigger picture, and we’re able to be strong, confident, and creative as a result.

So that’s the topic du jour in my lively conversation with the lovely fierce and feminine Jen Aubert as we explored what it means to be a feminine leader in today’s world.

Learning How to be an Authentic Leader in Business and Life

Had a great time speaking with my good friend, Annette Stepanian on her new podcast Office Talk. Annette is a lawyer that provides legal services to creative entrepreneurs, but is also passionate about helping people be their best selves, so it was awesome to talk about how women can be more of themselves in business and thrive. In this episode you’ll learn:

  • Why I transitioned from working in Silicon Valley to starting my own coaching practice
  • What it means to be operating from an empowered feminine state
  • How to effectively utilize vulnerability and why some women struggle to do just that
  • Why trying to prove your worth all the time is actually not a good idea
  • Why being competent and being liked don’t have to be mutually exclusive
  • Why the skills I speak about are even more important if you’re an entrepreneur
  • How your negative association with your body impacts your decision-making
  • The one exercise we should all be doing … and it doesn’t involve going to the gym
  • Why I opted to self publish her book versus working with a publisher
  • Some of the mistakes she made while self-publishing and how you can avoid them
