Wouldn’t it would be wonderful if there was some kind of ‘add-water-and-mix recipe’ that we could use to become great Mothers?! But the reality is that this most-important-job-in-the-world comes without a recipe to follow, a manual to read or an on-the-job trainer.
Despite the lack of instructions to follow, most of us would agree that our greatest support as Mothers comes from one another. And Mothers Are Leaders builds on this by creating out of the box tools that are Mother-developed, Mother-tested and Mother-approved. (You know the saying, ‘If at first you don’t succeed … go back and try it the way your mother said to!’)
Mothers Are Leaders (MRL) came about after 1) starting an international non-profit with my husband and 2) having four kids. Somewhere in this frenetic process it dawned on me how significant the intersect is between leadership and motherhood. Mothers Are Leaders now exists to bring leadership principles into mothersphere, helping mothers to stand tall as leaders and to lead their children well.
Mothers Are Leaders is NOT here to tell you how to specifically lead YOUR children, or WHAT “leading your children well” must look like. As a Mother-Leader, you will determine these details. “Leading well” for one mother might mean ‘leading positively’, or creatively, or ‘leading them towards God’, or to financial independence or…
Nor will we enter the discussion about whether Mothers really are leaders – we accept that as a fact! No matter who you are, where you live, how many children you have or what ages they are – truth is, you are leading your children every day. Our heart is to support you so that you are leading them WELL.
Mothers Are Leaders IS here to support you by developing your leadership knowledge and skills:
- We will guide and support you as you decide what being a great Mother-Leader looks like for YOU.
- We will show you how you are already a leader and help you stand tall in that role.
- We will teach you leadership principles and specific leadership skills and show you how to apply them to your mothering.
- We will help you laugh at the funny moments of motherhood (and we will cry with you when necessary too!).
As you learn to own your space as a Mother-Leader, you will be challenged and inspired, empowered and educated, supported and loved. And you can stop second-guessing yourself and start being totally confident that you are leading your children in the best way possible.
I look forward to getting to know you in the comments here on the website or over at our Facebook page. Blessings to you and the chickadees you lead.
