We all have a We-mind and a Me-mind. One of the two leads, the other follows. As the name suggests, our We-mind primarily focuses on the well-being of the group and our Me-mind has its own well-being at heart. On the whole, women tend to be more We-minded and men more Me-minded. The degree to how We- or Me-minded we are is unique to each one of us.
Both minds have their own values, priorities and strategies for goal setting, problem solving, conducting business, communication, approaching leadership, conflict and other areas of life.
The problem is that in a professional setting we tend to appreciate only the Me-minded way of being, which alienates We-minded people.
Those of us who are dominantly We-minded are more likely to struggle with what I call an inner glass ceiling. That said, many of the ‘flaws’ women are told they need to overcome in order to be successful and leader-like, are in fact We-minded life strategies, which are misunderstood and not valued.
Looking at ourselves through this lens will help us get out of stagnation and into flow, open the way for more people to embrace their leadership. True leadership is we-minded.
