A Response To Our Times

The way business gets done is clearly in need of change. We are confronted with this daily be it with our political, economic and business practices all born out of the patriarchal power structures that has dominated us for centuries. 


I want to be clear, this isn’t about calling out men, this is about the systems and power structures that we have ALL bought into because it’s just the way things are. I’m here to say that we can do a much better job if we’re willing to take the leap into something new that values and fortifies ALL Human Beings.

It’s clear to me that these power structures and systems are no longer relevant even though they are being acted out in front of us on a daily basis at work, in our businesses and in our political system. For the most part due to hierarchy in our structure there is a lack of inclusion, leaving many of us feeling disempowered and alone. 

The effects of this are discouraging, leaving many of us feeling resigned. Many of us do not feel like we are seen orheard, and as a result apathy sets in from years of trying figure out the “HOW” of navigating the rules set forth in the power structures of these outdated patriarchal systems.

The tools that we’ve been taught to use to be a “SUCCESS” are no longer effective. You may ask what can we do about it? As we face these new times and opportunities we must first acknowledge the Zeitgeist (a German word) meaning – The Spirit of The Times.

Badassery Engagement is a response to this Zeitgeist!! I got a download and then I jumped in with both feet. It’s time WE write a new story collectively. This new story is about empathy, connectedness and relationship in LEADERSHIP in both business and life. We need new tools to address these new times. 

I believe we have two emerging stories simultaneously. The emerging story in our world and the emerging story in our own leadership. We are here to tell humanities new story, to bridge a new consciousness into this world. Meaning, we cannot solve our problems with the same consciousness that created them. 

If you are an entrepreneur or business leader I invite you to:

  • Find your “WHY” for what you’re up to.

  • Tune into your messaging and how it serves your community. 

  • Notice how you’re approaching your business or job by either being demanding, or are you inviting?

I would love to hear your thoughts! Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about Badassery Engagement. In order to write this new story in the world and in our leadership, we must recognize and CLAIM our gifts and our Personal Power. To learn more, feel free to reach out!!
