Here's the missing link in the way you lead



As a woman leader, do you find the leadership roles you are expected to fill uncomfortable or unnatural? Does the traditional “leadership model” feel too assertive or aggressive — and it doesn’t seem to bring out the best in your people?

You’re not alone. I was in the first wave of women leaders in both the military and business worlds where THE leadership model was male-centric, “command,” patriarchal, and not always kind to women (one male Army officer would cross the street rather than salute me, a fellow female officer).

I struggled for many years to find a style of leadership that expressed my real power as a leader — and a woman. It has become my life’s work to discover what true leadership looks like and to train women in finding their own unique, empowered, gender-free style.

Women have received A LOT of mixed messages about how we are expected to behave as leaders. And there has been a decided gap in up-to-date, tuned-in leadership style training for us (and for men too, for that matter).

What’s the missing link for women in leadership?

Women have different natures than men and different natural gifts for leadership. We have discovered that we can wear the traditional male style of leadership to great effect. But what if we could be more than men – more adaptable, more influential, more effective — by bringing in our natural style and gifts?

I believe that as women leaders, we can wear different styles in different contexts, and use those choices to drive results and make a difference!

“Now I understand that my Leadership abilities are less about what I say and more about what I DO – and I know how to plant the seeds that inspire people to WANT to follow me. Linda taught me to be authentically ME, with the tools to communicate in a different way that allows me to better navigate my business AND personal life.” –Melissa B.

If you are intrigued by the idea that you could be a powerful leader by being authentically YOU, then please don’t wait any longer to attend my online masterclass, “Busting the Myths of Leadership: A New Model for Tomorrow’s Leaders.” It’s available to you here for a limited time by simply clicking the link.

I’ll “see” you there...
