How To Bring A Woman’s Touch Into Leadership
It’s important to know that in the effort of becoming your own lady boss, it can be very useful to exercise your woman’s touch.
This doesn’t mean the silly use of the phrase in home decoration, applying floral prints to your office furniture and using stencils to create pretty patterns around your computer bezel. This is a tragically outdated and incorrect view of all a woman’s touch is.
The woman’s touch is caring.
It’s the ability to care for the right reasons, the willingness to take care of a job role without self-destruction. It’s the ability to find the right balance. It’s also the ability to truly pursue your career in the effort of making the world a better place.
This might mean focusing on a leadership and innovation program or simply trying to bring a fractured department together once more. No matter how it expresses itself, you can be sure that the woman’s touch and its redemptive power will only lend you competence and skill.
The woman’s touch is strong.
It’s the ability to be resilient, especially in roles that are notoriously demanding. It’s also the willingness to try again next time after a failure, learning and not being too proud to admit mistakes.
This form of flexible strength is the most tensile and worthy. After all, a thick tree that does not move in the wind is likely to be blown over or cracked, but one that can move with the flow and yet keep its roots strong will survive and thrive. This is the power of a woman’s touch in a leadership role.
The woman’s touch is creative.
This is backed up by the statistical evidence that women are high in openness, a psychological trait. This means that thinking outside the box and being open to new solutions is a pinnacle of what we have to offer.
This woman’s touch could help us blast through the problems we might be facing via a lack of company progress, or give us the confidence to completely rebrand our image in the pursuit of added profitability.
In more caring roles, it might even be the willingness to try a novel strategy or to embellish our scientific approach with a little more social art. With this creativity at our beck and call, originality is produced, and this can have some far-reaching positive consequences in the future.
The woman’s touch is adaptable.
This means it often gives us the capacity to be careful and open regarding learning new tasks, and trying to fulfill a variety of roles. This helps us lead from the front with the competence of those from the back.
It also helps us gain the respect of our team as we can diligently communicate with them accurately, never in the dark, but always looking for the right solution.
With these tips, you should feel motivated and inspired to express your woman’s touch wherever you feel necessary to lead. Good luck!
