Thanks so much for your feedback.
For sure any generalisation is always going to have exceptions. However, it is my observation over 20+ years that the vast majority of men behave in a very competitive way in business.
And yet, there are plenty of men who don't - just as there are plenty of women who behave in what I have described as a masculine manner as they think this is what they need to do. Whenever I discuss this with women I get vigorous nods of agreement.
As in most things, any extreme could be perceived as being unhealthy. It's the balance of masculine and feminie energies that is so powerfu - Yin and Yang - where seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent.
There are plenty of great women role models out there teaching women to embrace their femininity in business and I applaud and support them. What I do is in a Yin-Yang manner so it is very complementary i.e. 1 + 1 = 3.
There was a time when I could not have done this. Maybe I'm a "sensitive new age guy" but I have definitely grown a lot over the last 25+ years of personal development work, and I believe (based on empirical feedback as well as how I feel) that I can bridge both aspects of masculine and feminine ways of doing business.
I really appreciate you raising this issue as it made me look in the mirror for a few moments and this is always a good thing.
