5 Ways To Encourage Women To Be Leaders

Women’s lives can be busy with home, children, work, pets, and significant others. Self-care and reflection can slip through your fingers without awareness much of the time. It’s not surprising that many women shy away from leadership roles at work or in other organizations. After all, who needs the added stress? However, the world needs strong women to show up and share their unique abilities and gifts. So, how do we enable ourselves to lead more and still keep the balance? Furthermore, how do we encourage our daughters, sisters, friends, clients, neighbors and moms to fulfill their leadership potential? Here are my top 5 ways to encourage women to be leaders!

Tall Poppy Syndrome

So the Australian Open tennis tournament is on in Melbourne at the moment, and watching the Australians play and compete got me thinking... We have this thing in Australia called the ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome’. Mind you, I think it’s in other places around the globe, but this is my experience of it here. It’s a rather ugly scenario where Australians like to chop down those around them who are standing taller or achieving more than they are, so that everyone appears to be on the same level, average -not making any one look less!

Everyone Needs a Mentor and a Mentee

Perspective; oh, so important, yet so hard to achieve! We can become so ego-centric, as we get busy with life, to-do-lists, and so forth. I am someone who can put herself in other people's shoes. Most of the time.

Fortunate Friday: My Patients

While watching the bank clerk counting the change (pennies included), I had a wave of gratefulness wash over me. Gratefulness for the patients who are helping me stay in practice. Gratefulness for patients like the one lady who only makes $15,000 a year, yet she wrote me a check for $200 because her insurance did not cover her visits to see me.

Fortunate Friday: New Friends

Since I started this blog back in March, I have learned how quickly that you can go from being scared of the Word Press Dashboard to whizzing around it like a Cirque Du Soliel aerialist.

Sun Damage Awareness

I know that I have done at least one post about the importance of protecting your skin from the sun's damaging UV rays; however, I can't resist doing another as I keep witnessing those around me get horrible burnt - one person in particular - my son. Though his fried shoulders were a result of a complete misunderstanding between the two of us; I still felt like the world's worst mother for not making sure he was covered.

Finding Common Ground With Your Teen

Do you remember what it was like to be 13, 16, or even 21? It's easy to recall major life events of your adolescent years, but sharing an empathetic moment with your own teenage girl might be difficult as time erases our past emotions - no wonder we find raising teens challenging. The fact is, children, at any age, seem to think that we have been perpetually grown up and never dealt with peer pressure or the physical, emotional, and mental changes with which they are bombarded on a daily basis. The other problem is they are trying to become adults, and we are trying to prevent it from happening- at least for a while.
