“When it comes to this aspect of self-love, it really requires some unraveling and some deprogramming to give ourselves the gift of doing fewer things and actually being present in our lives because being present in our lives brings a lot more joy. And it’s like an entirely loving experience to say, I get to savor this bite of chocolate cake. I get to work on projects that light me up.”

– Kate

  • How you can redefine what success means to you

Get to your own definition of authentic leadership with the New Female Leader book

In the book New Female Leader Caroline gives you concrete handles for how to lead as a woman and stay with your own values. You'll read from inspiring female rolemodels, Caroline gives you tips to lead in your own way and refers to relevant researches so you can find your own definition of authentic leadership. 



Today, the way we work isn’t working anymore. According to Kate Northrup, “Our culture has us kind of brainwashed or indoctrinated to believe that the more we do so, the more things we do in a day, in a week and a month, the more valuable we are.”

Our addiction to busyness leads us to feel like we’re failing our families, careers, partners, and ultimately ourselves. It’s time we revolutionize the way we work. It’s time to stop working ourselves to the brink of exhaustion. 

But how do we do that? The old adage, change starts with you, exists for a reason and so it starts by changing the system within ourselves. 

Instead of doing it all, Kate invites you to be more mindful about how you spend your time. “We all just do have a limited amount of energy and time and attention in any given day and so why not be super-mindful about what that goes towards rather than just like trying to spread it everywhere?”

Kate teaches data and soul-driven time and energy management practices that result in saving time, making more money, and experiencing less stress through her Do Less Planner, her programs, and her books, Do Less and Money: A Love Story. Do Less was named one of the 100 Best Time Management Books of All Time. 

Kate’s work has been featured by The Today Show, The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, Yahoo! Finance, Forbes, Women’s Health, Glamour, and more. Kate lives with her husband and their daughters in a cozy town in Maine.

Het New Female Leader boek

Het handboek voor nieuw leiderschap vanuit je eigen waarden

De afgelopen 2 jaar hebben we besteed aan het onderzoeken wat het nu betekent om als vrouw te leiden vanuit je authentieke zelf. Samen met jou zijn we op een zoektocht om uit te vinden wat het nu betekent om vanuit je eigen waarden te leiden in deze — nog steeds patriarchale — samenleving.

Inmiddels zijn we zo'n 70 gesprekken verder en is er een BOEK!  Zie dit boek als een handboek om je eigen definitie aan leiderschap te geven, waarbij we een model hebben ontwikkeld met handvatten hoe je dit nou het beste kunt doen. Het boek bevat tips van de rolmodellen, in combinatie met Caroline haar visie, analyse en wetenschappelijk onderzoek, zodat je tot je eigen authentieke vorm van leiderschap kunt komen.
