Leadership is a lifestyle…
and who one is…
Female leaders are found in the workplace, at home and in life.
What is it that all successful women have in common?
- They don’t allow the underrepresentation of women in the business world to prevent them from taking the place they deserve at the table.
- They do not conform to limitations, societal guidelines, or someone else’s opinion of who they should be, or become.
- They are the architects of their own lives.
Today, according to Catalyst.org, women make up around 5.4% of CEO positions in Fortune 500 companies. There are less than 1 in 5 women on the seats of corporate boards. While that number is improving, with female MBA students exceeding 1/3 of all MBA students, we have a long way to go.
The woman who chooses to raise responsible, loving children who will grow into contributing members of society in lieu of a career is also a leader, and arguably may be the most important one of all.
One thing is 100% certain, women have the power to mold our world, and make a deliberate and conscious effort to create and live the life they want, be that in the workplace, at home, in the community or in any other way that applies within their own lives.
Stay tuned because for the next few Wednesdays, we shall focus on building women as WINNING LEADERS!
