Own your leadership position

By Rebecca Plant

Attention: Women who work with your husbands.

Don’t be fooled by the manly and corporate nature of the word LEADERSHIP …

If you are a woman, and you run a business, you are in a position of leadership.

If you are a Mum, who stays home with her children and manages all things under that banner, you are in a position of leadership.

If you are one of the hundreds of thousands of women juggling the two together, you are ABSOLUTELY in a position of leadership. And YOU, more than anyone right now, need to have that tool as the sharpest in your shed.

Leadership is about …

● making strong choices – not right choices, strong ones.
● empowering others
● supporting community
● setting and keeping boundaries
● knowing your style and working it without apology
● identifying growth opportunities – of a personal and business nature
● tapping in to the right people
● attracting good people
● knowing how to speak several fluent languages (and I don’t mean Chinese, but the languages that MOVE others).

Most of all, it’s about knowing your TRUTH and then owning the hell out of it.

Don’t apologise for being You.
Don’t apologise for putting yourSELF first.

Leadership is a ‘fit your mask first’ scenario. If you are not fit, then you have nothing to give others. And you cannot attract the tribe that will carry your load with you, without giving to them in return.

If you are not focusing on upping your own skills as a Leader right now, then maybe see this as a gentle and loving reminder that it’s time.

A Feminine Framework is what you need. Not another masculine construct that has you pushing with more than you have in the tank.

Find the fit that gifts you Desire and a Community of Commitment. ONLY there will you find the ability to fully own your truth.
And will you find your ability to give more than you ever have before.

If you want my help doing that, you can reach out here with ‘WOMAN’ in the subject line.

If I’m not your woman, that’s OK. I urge you to find your Woman though and help her to find your Framework and Fit it.

This world will only move forward with Love.

And we, as creators of children and women of business, are primed to speak that language most clearly right now.
