Our Vision For You And How Doris’ Mission Emerged

I was 25 years old when appointed to my first leadership position in a dysfunctional organization. Since I had never heard of the feminine brain, I had no clue how to harness the leadership abilities women naturally possess.

In case this concept is new to you, the leadership styles of women usually prioritize:

  1. transparency
  2. healthy relationships
  3. empathy
  4. consensus building
  5. inclusiveness
  6. open communication
  7. emotional intelligence
  8. effective heart-centered leadership

I bumbled along with no leadership training and no female role models. I knew male leadership models didn’t fit but I didn’t know how to discover my personal leadership style. This was decades ago and no one in my work world was aware of the benefits of hiring a coach or securing a mentor.

Years later, when I did research to write the book, “Joy on the Job”, I realized I had made almost every possible mistake during my first leadership opportunity, except I was passion-driven and sincerely appreciated my team members. I had no self-advocacy skills and didn’t know how to manage my boss.

In spite of multiple insecurities and mistakes, I eventually led our team to national recognition. Like a seed sprouting new life in the middle of a rotten apple core, our team’s subculture managed to thrive in the middle of an organization that was quite fragile.

  • Exhausted from workaholism and the stress of trial-and-error training, I discovered the power of developing a network of competent, supportive women. We practiced “pay it forward” and genuinely supported each other’s success.

    Eventually, I discovered the power of hiring a coach. She helped me boost my leadership skills and challenged me to reach my stretch goals without sacrificing work-life balance.
