Some may call it Female Leadership. Some may call it Women in Leadership. Others may put it under the banner of Executive Coaching for women. Gender diversity. Gender parity. Gender balance. Inclusive leadership. Authentic leadership.
I could describe Making MsChief as any of the above.
It is, and, it is not. It's all of it, and, it's none of it.
Making MsChief is unique. As are you. You are unique. You are original. You are one of a kind.
Yes, Making MsChief is about getting more women to the top of organisations and having more women represented on our boards. More representation in the C-suite.
Yes, diversity and inclusion is core to the approach.
Yes, understanding unconscious and conscious bias is fundamental.
Yes, this is about breaking down the barriers that get in the way of progression.
Yes, this is about smashing the glass ceiling to smithereens.
Yes, this is about leaders and leadership. It does not matter what your gender identity is.
What gets in the way of progression?
Culture. Processes. Upbringing. History. Systems. Patterns of patriarchy. Values. Beliefs. Shadows. Congruence. Conscious and Unconscious Bias. Fear. Energy. Power. Rules. Status. Safety. Security. Stereotypes. Trying to fit in. Speaking up. Exclusion. The stories we tell ourselves.
And there is more. It is messy and tangled. And it does not need to be like that.
Contrary to popular belief, progression has not stalled because women are unable to balance work and family. It's not because they are not 'good enough', or that they are 'too emotional' or because they don't ask.
Together, we explore it all. Together we make the unconscious conscious and get to your essence, your truth, your gifts, the leader you are destined to be. The leader the world needs you to be.
A new path is required.
That is the path of a MsChief.
Let's make MsChief together.
Hello. I'm the Chief MsChief Maker.
I make MsChief for a living.
You can also call me Lyndsey. Or LJ.
You might call it an intention or a mission.
I call it a purpose.
My purpose is to restore gender balance in the workplace and to restore balance to our lives.
Some may think that Making MsChief is about rocking the boat. Making a ruckus. Being the problem. Causing trouble.
It's not about being mischievous, or naughty, or rebellious or intentionally being a trouble maker.
The intention of Making MsChief is from a place of positivity, inclusivity and celebrating our differences.
It's reconnecting with our wild side.
Explore your innate feminine wisdom and creativity.
Move away from your mind and build trust in heart-led and intuitive decision making.
Become the wise and confident leader you are destined to be.
Make authentic connections and build your tribe.
Inclusion is an inside job.
Self-awareness is key.
Explore the inner dynamics of inclusivity, diversity and difference.
Accept and celebrate your own uniqueness, and the uniqueness of others.
You were not born to fit in, you were born to stand out.
Speak up. Stand in your truth and speak your truth.
Embrace your inner MsChief.
Love, live and lead as a MsChief Maker.
Truly love what you do and who you are.
It's time to lead loudly.
Celebrate real difference.
Fully embrace diversity.
Use creativity to make real and sustainable change.
It's time to do things differently.
Make a real difference.
