Typical leadership models focus on masculine skills
Typical leadership models focus on masculine skills. Think about it, even the most powerful women and women-identified leaders lead with this masculine model. Women contort themselves to focus, compete, drive & strive and work with limited resources.
Women have become successful with this typical model and have had to, up until now.
It’s time for women to use their natural strengths.
Combining women’s natural strengths with masculine skills raises leadership to a whole new level.
How powerful leadership really works
Working with your natural gifts is key to being a successful leader day-in and day-out. When you’re fighting your natural tendencies, leading becomes draining. So many women are working against their innate gifts, so operate in suboptimal capacity and become aggravated or burn out.
It’s true for men too, but they may not realize it as readily as they are still operating within their natural skill set.
However, how many men feel powerfully successful as leaders?
I can tell you as I’ve worked with hundreds – not many.
Why is this true?
Men are working against the energy available to them.
Let’s look at the most powerful leadership energy.
The most powerful leadership quality
The most powerful leadership quality is the combination of the feminine and masculine traits.
This powerful quality is available to everyone and works with both the yin and the yang simultaneously. The feminine trait is the yin to the masculine’s yang. These combined traits propel you into powerfully successful leadership, if you let them.
You require both to be wildly successful.
How can you use both the feminine and masculine traits?
Recognize the feminine traits are different than masculine. It’s just that simple and complex. Feminine traits are cyclic, receptive and commanding. Masculine traits are static, forward moving and demanding.
Working with both is the key to powerful leadership success.
I’ve created a simple formula to combine the feminine strengths with the masculine skills and I call these The 5 Power Pairs.
The 5 Power Pairs
Integrating the two trait signatures makes for powerful leadership. The feminine strengths involve intuition, potential, cyclic rhythms, connection and creation. While the masculine skills involve the mind, control, expansion, competition and production.
One attribute set is no better than the other, but each requires both to get lasting results. Powerfully successful leaders are brilliant, charismatic and leave a legacy while making tremendous impact and living in financial freedom.
What is the simple formula that can make you a powerful leader too?
Here are five power pairs of the masculine skill + feminine strength to give you the resulting outcome.
- Mind + Intuition => Knowing & Brilliance
- Control + Potential => Influence & Charisma
- Expansion + Cycles => Sustainability & Legacy
- Competition + Connection => Collaboration & Impact
- Produce + Create => Infinite Resource & Financial Freedom

Being a powerfully successful leader makes you irresistible
When you incorporate the combination of feminine and masculine energies into your leadership strategy, you become irresistible to the marketplace.
Who doesn’t want to work with someone who is equally collaborative and appropriately competitive? Who attracts abundance easily and readily? Who produces and creates amazing services and products and gets results?
When you blend both the feminine strengths with the masculine skills, everyone wants to follow you and hangs onto your every word. Your charisma becomes known in the marketplace.
As you elevate your standing, you increase your sales conversions because your prospects have already convinced themselves of your worth. As you increase sales, you command more authority to make greater impact.
The growth cycle is obvious and it all begins with combining the feminine strengths with the masculine skills.
The time for powerfully successful leadership through the 5 power pairs is now. The stars say so, and as I’m on a first-name basis with the stars, I have to say now is the time.
