Last week it was my privilege to facilitate at City West Water.
It’s the first time that my stakeholder group has been exclusively female – from the MD down. I’ve often wondered what an all-female leadership team would really feel like, but I haven’t experienced it first hand – till now.
This is what I saw:
► Support. Trust & support in the team was off the charts.
► Role modelling. There was no evidence of an alpha in this leadership team, which made a united leadership group a reality, not an aspiration.
► Honesty. Openness about how change really feels and that it’s ok not to like it.
► No Fear. Willingness to give new things a go was really high.
And the result? A team who could handle a truly complex, confronting and ambiguous change conversation with ease.
>>Mere coincidence? What do you think?
