She’s 6’ tall and never forgets her heels: Eleanor Beaton grew up wanting to be a “supermodel investment banker” and now she helps women in business stand tall in their fierce feminine leadership.
Eleanor and Melinda talk confidence, work-life balance, managing conflict, and how to give voice to each other’s stories and experiences as women.
“I’m inspired by the major shifts we see now,” she says. We talk about why it makes no sense to aspire to be a perfect “Business Barbies”, why boundaries and knowing your “why” is vital, why women should be direct and avoid “false harmony” and why competitive sports are vital for women in learning resilience and managing conflict as they play the game of business.
Here are some of Eleanor’s tips for entrepioneering women:
- False Harmony: Conflict is part of the game of business. Learn how to be direct, speak your truth, and acknowledge the other, so you can debate ideas without making enemies.
- Work Smart AND Work Hard: If you’re in alignment with your true purpose, work shouldn’t feel like work. “I can work 12 hours and love it because I love my work,” Eleanor says.
- “Business Barbies”: Forget trying to “do it all”. You can do a lot, be present with quality time for your partner and children AND run and grow your business. But boundaries are vital, and so too is self care. Eleanor talks about how she challenges herself with weight training and a 10K race.
- The Healthy Feminine: It’s about creativity, collaboration and innovation. The Healthy Masculine is about protection, provision and backup. We talk about why the most conscious and successful leaders combine these masculine and feminine qualities.
