Leadership stories and gender differences
While both men and women feel like "they have always been leaders" (being lens) and "a leader when others see me as one" (accepting theme), women feel like leaders when they are actively 'doing' (the engaging lens). Men rely more on the performing lens, meaning they become leaders when they achieve a particular role.
Be aware that men and women may gravitate toward different lenses when viewing their leadership roles. Allow them to experiment with different narratives.
Reading is my passion, leadership is my favourite non-fiction. A bit of a geek.
