OLD VERSUS NEW LEADERSHIP PARADIGMS


New Leadership Paradigm

Prioritize collaboration, joy and pleasure

Be vulnerable

Perceiving complexity and whole heartedly engaging

Growth through nurturing

Receive and surrender

Connection is the goal

Tap into intuition, empathy and creativity

Be expressive, honest and empathetic

Nurture relationships

Seek community success- see and be seen

Recognize the inter-connectedness of everything

Power= Love

Engage emotionally

 

Old Leadership Paradigm - Patriarchal

Nose to the grindstone - work harder, faster, better

Suck it up

Single-pointed focus/goal

No pain, no gain

Entitled and ego-driven

Profit is the goal

Use only logical thinking, data and rationale

Be practical

Go it alone, do anything to get to the top

Seek individual achievement

Wanting individual gains not the good of the whole

Power = Dominance

Don’t feel

A Revolution Is Afoot and You’re Invited!!

Let’s create a world where community, connection and being woke takes the place of competition, doubt and scarcity—enough of settling, accepting crumbs and just getting by!

A world where we leave a legacy in our leadership and businesses practices that embody self acceptance/celebration, inclusion, radical self-care, and inspiring yourself and others to go higher and higher by speaking and living your truth, creating a new normal in our world culture.

A world where there is no more burnout, resentment, feeling alone, proving your worth and feeling a sense of powerlessness. Rather we lean into our intuition, trust and faith so that we can let go of the need for certainty and control.

And a world where we see and value one another so that we can tap into our passion as we lead, risk, create and model what’s possible, rippling out to our families, our communities and the world at large - and it is received with love and gratitude.
