In her new book, Fearless Women at Work, Five Powerful Strategies to Thrive in Your Career and Life!, certified executive coach Ginny Baro, Ph.D. devotes an entire chapter to the importance of female executives harnessing their feminine energy along with their masculine energy. In the chapter “Taking Off the Man Suit,” she writes that applying the new integrative leadership model reflecting the best traits found in male and female energy could prevent burnout, boost employee engagement and lead to greater collaboration and increased happiness.
She writes that when female executives operate in masculine energy, “We show up protected, controlling, aggressive, driving, commanding, pushing, unbending, forceful and demanding. This is the energy we rely on to complete tasks, finish projects, ‘get it done,’ and get from point A to Point B in the most effective way. On the other hand, when we show up in our core feminine energy, we show up vulnerable, decisive but flexible, open, collaborative, humble, playful, compassionate, receptive, nurturing, unpretentious and focused as much on the experience and the journey as we are on the destination.”
Embracing female and masculine energy is just one suggestion in Baro’s book, which provides women with practical strategies for building their dream lives and careers. All of the strategies in the book are based on her innovative C.A.R.E.S system. C.A.R.E.S. stands for Connect, Align, Rise, Envision and Seek. She advises women on ways to connect with what they value most; align what they are doing with what they wish they were doing; to rise above their limiting beliefs standing in their way; envision what they will have to do to get the life they want; and seek the support they need to propel themselves forward.
