Leadership Mastery You can take others only as far as you got yourself!
This talk shifts concept of leadership to a new level. Mature leadership is:
1. Knowing your limitations and being open when you need help = Humbleness.
2. Projecting personal coherence = Presence.
3. Conscious effort in self-development = Mastery.
4. Level of knowing yourself that allows you to be so strong that you can be weak = Vulnerability.
5. Taking yourself out of the way of the natural talents of your teams so they can fully bloosom = Egolessness.
6. Feeling for the future = The Future Quotient.
The talk explores the building blocks of how to achieve Leadership Mastery. It also allows the audience to gain insights into whats missing for them and ignites a desire for personal growth.  

Unstoppable Female Leadership Being a woman in high places.
Feminine power can move mountains. It is only when women acknowledge their strength, take ownership of it, understand it and act on it that their surrounding environment starts to align to their vision. This talk incites the audience to evaluate the depth of responsibility they take for themselves and assess their intentions which underpin how we project ourselves into the world.
It helps to differentiate: mothering a team vs. leading a team, being charming vs. being a business partner, pleasing others vs. maturing them, being a good girl vs. getting what you want. It holds a mirror to the question of limited progress and losing female talent that we keep asking ourselves. It sets the audience off on a journey of discovery that they often dont know exists.
