A Woman Who Has Influenced Your Life
Luke has had many women influence his life. His mother expanded his mind through art and creative thinking. His wife believed in him when his life was at a crux. And, his grandmother was the business leader and matriarch of a chain of music schools. All three women got him to be greater than even he thought he would be.
What He Sees That Hold Women Back
Luke recognizes that when a woman takes over a traditional leadership position, they are normally walking into a role a man previously held. He seems them struggle to get their bearings in the beginning.
What He Has Learned From Women
Luke has learned a great deal about courage and a lesson in vulnerability from a client who lost her husband to cancer. She turned her tragic circumstance into her mission.
The Necessary Changes
Luke says if women were to lean into their feminine values, leadership styles and essence of who they really are, they would discover their extraordinary powers of influence.
What Are You Excited About
Luke is excited about working on his new book, A Meaningful Way, right now and he has recently re-launched his podcast to compliment the book.
