In December, I introduced readers to a friend and mentor of mine – Betty Ann Heggie. Named among Canada’s Top 100 Powerful Women, Betty Ann has climbed the corporate ladder, and is now studying the structure of that ladder itself. What does it mean to be a successful woman? How do your gender differences help and hinder us in business? How can understanding Masculine and Feminine Energy aid you in your job and household?
We all know that men and women are wired differently. It’s a fascinating subject and one of many that Betty Ann Heggie explores on her website through her blog posts. In December, we looked at mentorship, or Womentorship as Betty Ann Heggie calls it. This month, we’re looking at Masculine and Feminine Energy!
Here’s a summary of the last 4 blog posts Betty Ann Heggie wrote about Masculine and Feminine Energy:
Workplace Power Games explores how the hierarchies of the modern workplace and often feel like a virtual game of snakes and ladders. Betty Ann shares tips on how to negotiate these ladders, while avoiding the snakes and pitfalls.
Colour Political Success Pink takes a look at women in leadership positions in politics and how women use their naturally collaborative Feminine Energy to gain the hearts of voters and win elections.
I really think Betty Ann hit the nail on the head when she quoted Jean Kovacs who said, “Men innovate just for the sake of innovating…. Conversely when women innovate, they are looking to solve a problem”. In Thoughtful Innovation Needs the Feminine, Betty Ann explores how women can use their Feminine Energy to feel empathy and put ourselves in another’s shoes, which helps find your innovation through our natural desire to serve.
And finally, in her post Know Your Energy, Serve Your Goal Betty Ann explores a mistake many women make when working in a male-dominated workforce; they move too far over into their Masculine Energy which backfires when their colleagues find them too direct, too pushy. How interesting!!
If these summaries of recent blog posts by Betty Ann Heggie intrigued you and made you want to learn more, good! That’s exactly what Betty Ann wants to do – facilitate thought and discussion on these topics as they relate not only to the working world, but in our own households and relationships as well.
