You don't have to be a woman to be a leader who embraces and shares the feminine aspect of leadership. You have to be someone who has as much heart for the betterment of other people as you have for the success of your department or company.
Once upon a time leadership was set up as emotionless and cold - based on numbers and self-protection. That hasn't worked out for us in any way. As individuals under this system, we have invited illness - alcoholism, physical ailments, anger, depression - as we have left our human mode of existence to become more machine-like in order to make all of the parts of a mechanistic system operate in tandem.
Human beings don't operate maximally in that way. Human beings intuitively and quite rightly don't trust that setup. One of the main breakdowns of this system is that humans cease to trust one another.
Trust and success go hand-in-hand. We humans don't "trust" numbers; we trust other people as a result of their empathy, humility, honesty and vulnerability. The question is: How do you come to embrace even one of these qualities in a business environment?
The answer is: start with attitude and move into action. Humility is the core attitude which brings the greatest change, so let's begin there.

Do you like the idea of breaking those social "should's" that have held you back for too long? Do you like the idea of successfully changing your modes of communication, your business structures, your self-image, and to your quality of life?
