Soft and Strong – embracing a new style of leadership

Welcome to the new wave of feminine leadership.

Soft and Strong Leadership is about challenging and disrupting the norms of leadership, and paving a way for our future leaders to walk upon. 

She is a celebration and balance of our masculine and feminine, light and shadow, soft and strong energies.

I’d love to share a piece of her here. 


6 ways to build soft and strong leadership

Want to know the 6 ways to build Soft & Strong Leadership.

Have you wondered why emotional intelligence is so important for leaders to develop?

It can be tough as a leader. Not only are you managing your team’s work, you’re also building relationships, managing difficult emotions and having those tricky conversations with them. Getting through these areas of leadership can be learned skills, but where do you start?

As a leader myself, and having worked with many others, I’ve noticed that having a strong foundation in EI allows us leaders to move through these tough areas of leadership with more empathy and compassion towards ourselves and our team.

So, if you’re ready to create deliberate acts of self-leadership to develop your emotional intelligence (that will then reflect in your work), then I would like to invite you to join me in my upcoming Emotionally Intelligent Leadership Seminar Series starting 5 Feb 2021.
