Being Vs Doing and why it’s important as a leader today

July 17, 2020 | Leadership ,

There is a real difference when you consciously show up in your business and are aware who you are being vs when you are constantly doing, doing, doing. 

When you are busy doing things constantly on that thread-mill it can be easy to lose sight of who you are being and not being productive. It happens the best of us at different times. That is why it is important for you to become conscious who you are being in your business.

Are you being the leader you are being called to be?

Many women I work with struggle to see themselves as leaders yet the have all the qualities and traits to do the job and I am talking from my own experience too. There is such an opportunity for women to step up and be the leaders of their businesses today. I am stepping up as a leader myself, supporting my clients who want to be more accountable and visible, helping them to get their businesses off the ground and stepping up to their next level.

Here are two ways I have used myself to help you show up in a different way so you can become the leader in your own business and life today.

Make the decision you are a leader
When you make the decision that you are going to be the leader of your own business and life it needs to come from deep inside you so you will show up with a different energy.

Maybe you see leadership as this masculine norm of leadership with men in suits or men around a board table. Its about you allowing yourself to be yourself and accepting there are different styles of leadership and that they do not have to look the same. It is not about comparing yourself to other men or women. It is about you owning your value and the value you bring to the table and owning your own leadership style even if it is different to how other people lead. You can have your own style and still be successful too and take your place at the table.

I’m inviting you to think about that – is there somewhere you are being called to take that place at the table and to honour yourself as a leader? Are you willing to change your perception of what it means to be a leader today?

With the chaos and change brought about with the pandemic there is a need to bring more feminine qualities to the table. It is about making a difference as you bring more empathy, more connection, intuition, being authentic and being your true self. These are the qualities of a Highly Sensitive Leader that I am learning to embrace more and more and helping other leaders to embrace to bring more balance into the workplace today.

Become the leader you want to be
Once you have made the decision it is about you being the leader who can influence change in the world today by being yourself and showing up. It is not about waiting for others to tell you what to do or asking for permission.

When you own your value, experience and gifts, as you show up fully you will open yourself to new opportunities and your next level.

Here is what will happen if you don’t change anything – you will continue to procrastinate, to over-think and over analyse.

Having a mindset of a leader you are not going to allow yourself to get stuck in procrastination and over-analysis. You will put a plan in place so you can serve as a leader in your business and make the difference you want to see in the world. You will start to connect with your own intuition and find the answers within yourself to invite in new opportunities.

Now it’s your turn – how can you get curious about making this shift in who you are being and your own perception what it is to be a leader today? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
