Here A LEADER, There A LEADER… Yes, I did just recently spend some Hangout time with my almost 2YO Granddaughter, singing Old MacDonald. Holy angel of all things perfect, I love that little Goddess! Anyway, the tune was on my mind today, as I slid into the topic of today’s post: finding your inner leader. Here’s the thing… wanting to be good at leadership and all the amazing things that that energy can bring is not enough to make it happen. You must call to her with your voice, actions, and intention.
And, there are different flavors of leadership, more than you’ll find in your local Baskin Robbins ice cream store. You have choices, my friend! First, the key is to clarify your motivation to delve into the leader’s world and her “to do” list. Then you have to identify your “flavor” of leader. This is generally done by trial and error…but, it helps to know your Feminine and Biz types as Joy Balma so brilliantly presents in her best selling book, Rock Your Feminine Type to Rock Your Business. Take the Biz Type Quiz HERE.
You see, we all have a leader in us…somewhere. You sort of have to coax her out with some yummy bait. Yes, give her a reason to move to the forefront of your business- one that trumps all that fear, hesitation, and the blissful contentedness of your “just stay the same” world. Many women have to literally take a new picture of themselves in order to see the leader they can be. If that means putting on your power suit and red stilettos, do it! That’s just one flavor of leadership. For you, it might be a leather jacket and lots of cool jewelry…yeah, that’s more my style. No matter what she looks like, she has a place in your business if you invite her. This is your opportunity to invent your leader, to create a powerful persona who will push your business, book project, or whatever you want to new levels!
