Some of the best practice of feminine leadership

I am privileged to study with Lama Tsultrim Allione of Tara Mandala. Before she was officially my teacher I observed how she treats her community, stuff, and people around her. I observed how I felt after and during her workshop and for a year afterward how it affected me and brought positive life changes. As a result, I decided that she is an appropriate loving teacher in whom I can trust.  I found it fairly easy to be around her and to request a private call.

The best leadership I have noticed are people who follow up and give back to their community. Marie Forleo comes here as a great example {or Danielle LaPorte] of someone who has a very strong team and all her employees are well paid with benefits enjoying the work that they do. Milagros Casaverde from Sacred Valley (Ayahuasca tribe) and Chameli Ardagh from Awakening Women Institute. Before we can give to others [organizations & donations] we need to look after ourselves and our team/family we work with is the most important to be connected with. A good community is based on a good family, and good family values. 

When I connect with Buddhist principles – everything is empty in and of itself, meaning there is actually no inherent existence and as a result, we could say there is ‘no story’. Maintaining this emptiness is the perfect ground for bringing creativity and joy into play.

To maintain this empty-ground we need to make sure that there are dialogues, conversation, talk, communication, interchange, discourse, argument; chat, chatter, chit-chat, gossip; informal jawing, gabbing; nattering, chinwagging.  This happening assures that there is a connection with everyone who is close to us. The dialog is what keeps our juices flowing and our lives meaningful in the work we are doing.

Leadership that is successful is non-exclusive, meaning it brings in what is around and makes the best of it for the benefit of all.  Here is a qualified list.

1. They are approachable

2. They follow up with community

3. They keep the dialog going

4. They stand for the betterment of humanity. 

5.  They all have a good set of core values

6. They are experts in their field, and they collaborate with experts.

7. They have a good set of boundaries

8. They know how to deal with conflict in appropriate loving and compassionate ways. 

9. They have a sense of humor and play with life

10.  They recognize the uniqueness that they bring and continue to take life as more of spiritual research. 

11. They continue to study themselves.

12. They embrace change. 

13. They have strong support outside of the colleagues they work with.
