Why we need more women leaders

Why we need more women leaders

“Women make up about 40% of all employees, but just 6% of CEOs” – Goldman Sachs report (2018)

“Women CEOs make up 6.4% of the Fortune 500 list in America. An increase from the previous years but still incredibly low” – 2017 Fortune 500

Nowadays, these facts and numbers are sadly still not surprising. We are well aware that women leaders are still a rarity, but despite this awareness, it is still difficult to fill in the gender diversity gap.

In recent years, research has shown that increasing female leadership is helping companies thrive with unprecedented results. The data also suggests that, in many areas, employers and their industries have unfortunatley not "returned the favor".

According to a research conducted by The Harris Poll in 2018, half of Americans would like to work for a female leader.

Women-led organizations are also more likely to have employees engaged, inspired, and satisfied than male-led companies - women-led companies are, therefore, not only good for business but also good for employees.

Simply put, women in leadership positions give better overall results.
It’s time to change the gender diversity in our leadership teams as well as create a new form of leadership.
What are the key factors to develop to be a woman leader? There are definitely many:

Resilience, Community building, ability to set healthy boundaries, innovation, empathy, just to name a few.

Let’s look at the 3 key elements that I define as most important:

- Setting boundaries: as a leader you must learn to say NO more often, being conscious that saying no opens up many more opportunities to say yes to. Setting boundaries doesn’t mean being selfish, it actually means that you will be able to show up with more authenticity, presence and love. Setting clear boundaries will also prevent you from stress, anger and resentment. As a woman leader, you need to protect your time and energy and you do that by setting effective boundaries.

- Resilience: is the ability to recover quickly from difficulties. In this ever changing situation worldwide, being able to overcome personal and professional setbacks is key. It means you’re flexible, you bend but you don’t break. You can build resilience by fully being present with yourself, your needs and by not attaching any meaning about yourself to facts that happen. Being resilient means that you are willing to experience also the “negative” emotions , but without letting them stop you. You’ll be able to see “failure” as lessons to learn from and that will give you even more strenght.

- Self reflection: research shows that leaders who value self reflection are better performing. Being able to ask yourself deep questions, knowing your values and desires, getting the support of a coach all deepens your self awareness and self reflection skills. A woman leader who knows her vision and is able to connect with her own intuition is a powerful asset for every company

When as women leaders we are able to switch from the reactive and stress-filled attitude to one of proactive, engaged and generous everyone’s experience improves. Our performance gets better, the work of people around us gets better, and honestly it’s way more fun!
The change starts with you.
Whether you’re already holding a leadership position in your current company, or you are starting your own entrepreneurial project, or you simply want to become a role model that inspires your family and the community you’re living in, know that you can express your authentic and full leadership.

What you gain from the Silva Method?

What you gain from the Silva Method?

 

In just 15 minutes a day, you could have the answer to CONSISTENT SUCCESS in your career & personal life, unshakable health, happiness, and a life awakened to your purpose.

The Silva Method has been studied in universities around the world and its benefits are scientifically proven.

  1. Leverage Your Personal Energy.

Imagine for just a moment what it would feel like to be in “total control” of your mind, body and emotions… This seminar was originally called Silva Mind Control for just this reason! After attending the Silva Method seminar, you will be able to direct your personal energy, minimize the negative effects of stress and improve your health.

You will be able to relax your mind and body in seconds. You will know how to improve your immune system, reduce the effects of aging, stay “forever young” and calm yourself instantly. But that’s not all.

When you direct your energy you can achieve a healthy, positive state in seconds. This is the first key to a happier life. Without this ability, your health deteriorates, you age quicker, your relationships suffer, and you work harder and longer to achieve less.

 

  1. Reach Goals Quicker & Solve Problems Creatively.

Upon studying Silva’s training, Dr. James Motif of the Psychology Department in Hope University, Australia, found that it led to an increase in adherence to moral and ethical standards, positive attitudes to family members and better social self-image. It also led to a decrease in self-criticism.

In addition, Dr. George Desau, in a study on Silva graduates at the Incarnate School for Girls in San Antonio, Texas, found that our curriculum boosted ego strength, helped prevent shyness, increased trust and cooperation among students and led to greater self-assurance and warm-heartedness.

To achieve what you want out of life, you first need to know what you want! Then comes the challenge of staying focused, positive and motivated – a quality called DYNAMIC FOCUS.

We create what we focus on. By learning to focus on your goals, you will become more positive and directed, and you will more easily be able to leap over obstacles on your path.

 

  1. Free Yourself From Negative Beliefs and Behaviors.

Rewire your brain for success. Any message repeated often enough, especially during childhood, forms the seeds of deep-rooted beliefs. From infancy we have all been unconsciously “programmed” by our parents, teachers, siblings, the media and society, mostly with good intentions but bad results. Silva Mind Control was created to free us of these negative beliefs and behaviors.

As children, for example, many of us were told, “If you want to be successful in life you need to do well in school.” A bad student who grows up believing this has dismal prospects for the future.

Yet we all know of bad students who became extremely successful such as Edison, Einstein and Churchill. Avoid being a victim…take action now and own your life!

In Silva Mind Control, now known as The Silva Method, you will learn skills to gain control over your own mind so that you can consciously expand your limits, overcome negative programming and continue to grow.

 

  1. Make Better Decisions and Recognize Your Opportunities.

Access your creativity and intuition. Making the most of opportunities also means recognizing them for what they are.

Imagine having such a keen sense of intuition, so well developed, that you could reliably and regularly tap into its source. Would this type of ability have helped you make better decisions in the past?

Intuition, like creativity and imagination, is a faculty of genius, and a function of the right brain hemisphere, in our opinion. Ninety percent of adults have lost their ability to draw from this part of their intelligence; although we all possessed these abilities as children.

Regain your creative genius by enrolling in the Silva Method program. You will learn proven, reliable techniques to access your creativity and intuition on demand.

 

  1. Learn to naturally accelerate your body’s rate of healing.

Jose Silva firmly believed that the mind is the driving force behind ALL healing.

In the Silva 4 Day Immersion you will learn a variety of mental visualization methods designed to accelerate your mind and body’s natural capacity for physical and emotional healing. These results have been studied and endorsed by a variety of medical practitioners.

For example, the late Dr. O. Carl Simonton, a world-renowned cancer therapy researcher, described the Silva Method as one of the “most powerful single tools” that he could offer to his patients.

 

  1. Boost your creativity

Studies show that creativity is enhanced when functioning at the Alpha level.

During the 4 Day Immersion Experience, you will learn how to enter the Alpha level at will and then to use your creative mind to help you think of solutions to problems, enhance creativity or let inspiration flow.

Silva graduates have used this process to develop patents, start new businesses, or to create works of art, literature and music. Here are some examples:

Bestselling author Richard Bach praised The Silva Method publicly: “Mental discipline and creative visualization are what’s behind the power of the Silva Method,” he said in an article in Harper’s Bazaar magazine. Bach also credits inspiration from The Silva Method as having helped him finish his best-selling book, “Jonathan Livingston Seagull”.
