Your Leadership Identity

“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.” — Dolly Parton

Being placed or placing yourself into a leadership role is not enough. “Becoming a leader….involves a fundamental shift in identity….It’s not enough to instill the ‘right’ skills….People become leaders by internalizing a leadership identity and developing a sense of purpose.” -Ibarra, Ely & Kolb. “Women Rising: The Unseen Barriers.” Harvard Business Review, Sept 2013.

Leadership identity is about how we see ourselves as leaders. It’s about developing a sense of self-awareness and mindfulness so we can come to know ourselves in a deep and meaningful way – so that we can know who we are as leaders and how we can uniquely contribute to the whole. It’s about our physical, energetic and mental presence, our attitude, our connection to personal purpose, and our readiness to take on new challenges, make an impact and have influence in the world. There’s a lot to “work on” with regard to leadership and we can always improve. But when we have a strong sense of leadership identity, we have the confidence and attitude we need to lead authentically and to take risks, be vulnerable, and stretch our edges of what is possible.

As more women step into leadership positions, we have the opportunity to create new paradigms for leadership. As we emphasize a more integrated model of leadership, one that includes and recognizes the power of feminine values, leadership starts to look quite different from the current models present in today’s business landscape.

Join us in this Circle Up to explore your own Leadership Identity and how you can increase your reach and influence as a leader while coming from a place of deep resonance with the truth of who you are.

As a side project during her years in publishing, she created SoulSweat™, a dynamic dance program that combines structured choreography with wild abandonment. She taught for 12 years, and released SoulSweat, the DVD, in 2007.
