Our society is changing and we can all feel the shift in power. The world is in masculine overdrive, which has resulted in short term solutions, competition, powerplay and a need to control. This has contributed to imbalance, stress and burnout. Many people are longing for change, renewed leadership, and an atmosphere that supports self-actualization.
That’s why ‘Feminine Red Power’ is needed. This power is based on compassion, collaboration, intuition, creativity and leading with the heart.
Should we put the masculine qualities aside? No! This shift requires awareness, taking responsibility, courage, lev (Hebrew for heart) and embracing a new way of being and thinking.
Chantal Heutink takes you on a journey. Inspired she tells her story about how she had the courage to follow her childhood dream, established a business in Kenya and eventually ran into the masculine overdrive as an entrepreneur. In an open, vulnerable but strong way she shares what this has meant for herself and the company in Kenya. This experience has made it clear to her how old stereotypical roles, structures and patterns have an impact on the imbalance in ourselves, business and society. There is no glass ceiling, this is within ourselves and it is time to break through that! Her vision encourages reflection. It shows that 1 + 1 = 3, as soon as feminine and masculine qualities start to work together. LEF (Dutch for courage) is needed. L.E.F. – Take the Lead – Express & Embrace yourself – Ignite your Fire
“Chantal is in the top 1% of all speakers I’ve ever seen! I was fortunate enough to watch Chantal give a presentation in Uganda that lit up the entire room and inspired myself and all the investors and business leaders in the room to re-think our conceptions of what is possible. She speaks in a way that immediately resonates and that commands the attention of the entire room. She speaks with her heart in an incredible vulnerable and strong way. Any organization who is fortunate enough to get Chantal to speak at their gatherings will quickly come to learn that she is the highlight of the show!”Daniel Epstein
