Female Leadership

The proportion of women in leadership positions has not increased significantly in the past two decades, despite a variety of efforts in the corporations. One reason: In the modern, masculine business world, female leadership qualities have not been in demand during recent years. The strengths of the majority are still considered to be more compatible and effective, and are accordingly demanded and promoted in the development of young talents. As a result, many women do not see any incentive to aim for leadership positions, not least because there are only few role models who have succeeded in cultivating their natural female strengths as a leader.

In recent times, the focus has been on the social desirability of diversity and women in leadership positions but economic necessities have now begun to play a vital role for companies. They realize that they can cope with the increasing complexity of change in a sustainable way, especially when it comes to linking diverse, male and female qualities in leadership. Therefore, Reflective Female Leadership addresses the development of female potential in leadership and, in combination with male strengths, transforms it into a complex repertoire of leadership skills and behavioral variability, such that the individual impact can be raised to a new intensity level.

Balance is the simultaneous presence of opposites. — In the modern quite masculine work environment, women have often primarily fostered their male attributes, as those are perceived to be very effective, especially among executives. But with the recent transition into a (post-)digital working world, female strengths - such as integration, intuition, trust and „allowing (good) things to happen“ - are explicitly required to manage the rising complexity of our times. Successful, sustainable leadership starts with equally cultivating both female and male strengths within every single one of us.

The sequential modules give the participants insights to themselves and enable them to develop their potential by identifying essential mechanisms of action and making use of untapped resources. Female strengths such as integration, intuition, trust and serenity are crucial leadership qualities in the digital transformation. They are explored to allow participants to gain new access to themselves. In combination with their male strengths, they become aware of their own leadership identity. The modules combine insights and methods from the fields of sociology, behavioral sciences, psychology, medicine, neuroscientific research and elite sport.
