Growing up the daughter of a single mother, leadership was always something that I associated with womanhood and femininity.
My upbringing gave me a unique perspective as I got older and entered a workforce that was dominated by men and masculine leaders.
I could see through the masks that my women co-workers wore day in and day out, just trying to fit in and do what they felt they had to in order to get ahead.
Costumed in traits that we typically associate with masculine leadership, I watched women suppress their more feminine attributes, the ones that I believed made them more cut out for leadership roles.
When I began coaching leaders and applying the tools that I learned at The Life Coach School to my leadership framework, I saw how much my approach challenged the status quo of what we’ve been taught to think about leadership and what it means to be a strong and capable leader.
I also saw how many women, especially women entrepreneurs, struggled with this aspect of managing a business.
I created TheVisionary.CEO
to prove the power of one thriving woman
My leadership framework and the CEO Team Blueprint™ that my team and I have
created is built around a repeatable formula. Learning it will give you the ability
to solve any team challenge in your business—without requiring you
to change or hide who you are.
