This is the last post in my series to give you the Keys to Unlocking Your Power and Presence as a Woman Leader.
What’s needed to create better work-life balance and well-being so you can shine more brightly? Here is the 5thth step you need to know in order to expand your power and presence as a leader:
Step 5: Owning your Power and Presence.
As you expand your self-awareness and embody all that you’ve come to know about yourself, you can use that to develop your unique, personal style. This comes across in how you talk, your mannerisms and even how you dress. When your external appearance supports your internal radiance, you have created an environment that captures your spirit and supports your very essence. This is the fragrant spice that completes your recipe. It’s the thing people totally sense about you, but can’t put a finger on exactly what it is. Somehow, people sense that – whatever it is – it’s perfect for you. That it’s totally in alignment with who you are and what you have to say. When your inner qualities are aligned with your physical characteristics, personality traits, and goals, your personal style is a natural extension of that which will propel you toward becoming the woman leader you’ve always wanted to become.
This is what builds a strong and authentic personal brand. Through continually and consistently aligning your inner essence with your energy, presence and actions, you are able to more authentically speak your voice, stand in your power and become a more effective leader. As you learn to do this you’ll realize that it takes less energy and effort to stand in this congruent place as well, putting you more at ease. It is this sense of ease in which you move through the world that people naturally take notice of and has them lean in further to hear what you have to say as you stand head and shoulders above the crowd.
You cannot avoid truth. It is better to face it, it is better to accept it, it is better to live it.
Once you start living a life of truth, authenticity — of your original face –
All troubles by and by disappear because the conflict drops and you are no more divided.
Your voice has a unity then, your whole being becomes an orchestra.”
While you many not consider yourself a “leader” in every situation, you are.
Your voice matters.
As a woman in today’s global economy, it’s essential that you tap into your own inherent leadership style and strengths, while having the courage to speak your truth and take a stand for your guiding principals, passions and beliefs. As you find your unique style and develop your presence in a way that aligns with your values, talents, and true nature, you will naturally and authentically stand in your power and become the leader people want to follow.
And as you do, other women will be inspired and encouraged to do the same.
Then, everyone wins.
“I am only one; but still I am one.
I cannot do everything, but still I can do something.
I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”
“Start by doing what’s necessary, then what’s possible,
and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
~Saint Francis of Assisi
Question to ponder: Where are you not fully standing in your Power as a leader? What needs to change so your voice is heard?
