“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” -Plato
This month leading up to International Women’s Day on March 8th, I’ve been sharing a series of videos on The Heart of Feminine Leadership.
In this week’s video, I’m going to talk about the power of Fierce Kindness.
I believe that to be a feminine leader is to be mindful of how we treat others, and feminine leadership values relationships and harmony as critical to the success of the whole. This is not to the point that we compromise ourselves or our values in a negative way, but to the point we realize that how we treat others really matters.
Of course we still stand up for ourselves and use our voice, but we do it in a way that is standing FOR what we believe in rather than against who we think is wrong.
Can you feel the difference? The qualities of the heart value love over war, connection over estrangement. Though these qualities are tender, they are incredibly powerful, and this radical level of kindness is desperately needed in our world today.
I have always loved the saying that you can learn a lot about a person by how they treat people when they think no one is watching, or how they treat the wait staff at a restaurant. In a world that is very divided, we have to each make an effort in our everyday life to come together and see each other as equals.
There is a myth in leadership and success that you have to be tough and cut throat in order to be successful… and I believe the opposite is true. I believe you have to be fiercely kind and defend that quality of the feminine heart with all your might.
I hope you enjoy this video below…
