We live in a world dominated by thought and behavior codes that are usually considered masculine. Codes of control, codes of competition, codes of aggression, and a black-and-white point of view that have contributed to many of today’s problems: wars, inequality, pollution, reckless risk taking and business that are not responsible.
J. Gerzema and M. D’Antonio declare that “Feminine values are the operating system of twenty-first-century progress” in the book, Athena Doctrine.
According to them, people who think in a more feminine way are twice as happy and optimistic about the future as those who think in a more masculine way.
Countries with higher levels of feminine thought patterns and behaviors have a higher per capita GDP and report a higher quality of life.
Is this the secret to more conscious business? When they embrace feminine values, companies double the resources applied to the challenges they face, and expand their potential for growth.
This shift toward the feminine is not intended to be “the end of men”, but it does suggest a natural balance movement which greatly increases the capacity in both men and women to solve problems and create a good life.
Gender is who we are, not what we can be – and blending masculine with feminine is the key to personal success, wise leadership and inner power.
