For real change to happen it needs to get personal.
To create a powerful movement you need to be able to engage a strong connection and feeling of passion from within.
To be a leader who truly inspires you must be able to convey a heartfelt message which others can resonate with.
In the summer of 2013, eBay Inc. conducted a global gender-diversity survey on the attitudes and experiences of their top 1,700 leaders. McKinsey and Company recently published their story.
When companies have a leadership of connected hearts and minds they build a tribe of passionate employees who are deeply connected to the end goal and ensure issues such as gender diversity stay a priority on the agenda.
..commitment, measurement, and culture outweigh a business case and HR policies.
Men and women both have the ability to be natural leaders. We can all connect in with our passions and inspire others.
Women who are becoming mothers have almost a fast-track to their feelings, with hormonal changes heightening emotions. Ensuring women at this time are truly aligned with their company’s philosophy and policies can be a key component in ensuring a strong level of return-ship with those women passionate about stepping into leadership roles on their return. Many women I speak to share they feel even more passionate about their work after their baby arrives, but if they are only so-so about the business goals and plans, the passion for their child will more likely take priority and their career potential lost.
