Hi, I am Ulrike
I decided to found Empowering Female Leaders in January 2021 because I felt the urgent need to encourage women to express their authentic leadership style without adapting to the patterns of a male-dominated business world.
Maybe to some of you, this sounds a bit radical, but I believe that female leadership is the biggest untapped potential that we have in this world. And I am not speaking about percentages in leadership teams. I speak about bringing in our perspective by deploying our true authentic leadership style.
I have been a leader in the corporate world for over 20 years and most of the time I was so focused on achieving my professional goals that I did not question the (missing) opportunities of being fully myself. I tried to fit in, to please and the higher I climbed up the ladder, the more I played the role of what in my opinion a successful businesswoman should look like.
Only when I decided to give up a well-paid job in 2018 to follow my calling of empowering other people to thrive, I realized how much my way of being at work had been biased throughout my whole career by my wish to adapt to behavioral patterns in the corporate world that were not mine – patterns, most of which had been shaped by men.
I also realized that despite my successful career (I had the chance to excel in a C-Level role for several years), I never had the feeling of fulfilling my full potential and I was never fully satisfied with my achievements.
But one thing I knew: It is in our own hands to change our destiny. We can decide how we want to feel and act and we are all the creators of our future. We do not need to adapt, please or apologize for being too “female” (and what exactly this means is unique to each one of us…).
This is the message that I want to bring to you. With Empowering Female Leaders, I want to bring more self-empowerment, authenticity, and joy to women from all over the world. I am not a native English speaker and the majority of our community members aren’t either, but we all have something to say and an incredible amount of common ground. We all have a voice and valuable insights to share.
