Today’s world needs the caring and responsible leadership skills that parenthood unlocks. Mothers are leaders.

Welcome to the first leadership development community for mothers

Our mission is to inspire and support mothers to dream more, to learn more and to do more for the world by stepping into a leadership role.  We work with companies, parents and communities to develop the caring and responsible leadership our world needs right now.

 

We live in a society where  politicians and film stars grab the headlines. Little attention is paid to those who truly shape the next generation: parents. Ignored is that no leadership role is more important than parenthood either for women or for men.

The recent crisis showed us that today’s world could benefit from a caring and responsible leadership style more than the aggresive competitive style we have seen some male leaders display. 

There are 2 billion mothers in the world and many of them have to sacrifice their own dreams and personal ambitions after having children.  While we admire the beauty of self-sacrifice what we forget is the price we pay as a society and as a planet when generations after generations of women hold back on their leadership ambitions upon having children.

 

Nature hasn’t created a single relationship as powerful and naturally strong as the one between a mother and her child. From giving life, carrying for, nurturing and raising children, up to the time the young ones eventually fly the nest, mothers are often the ones who guide and keep families and communities together. In this 30 min podcast Steliana talks about ‘Happy mums for happy kids’
