Things don’t always go according to the plan that we set out for ourselves. How do you find that next step in your career or the new job that you are passionate about? It’s never too late to find your calling or passion. Everything comes easy if you are willing to work hard, be curious and take a chance.
As a leader, you aren’t just advocating for yourself. You need to advocate for others as well. To create a culture that recognizes that diversity is a strife, you need to put your reputation on the line and stand by those whom you believe in.
Create Culture. See Value
Increasingly, women are staying in jobs because of the culture and men have to recognize the value of women and understand what we bring to the table. We can’t expect men to know this. It’s our job as women to help them understand and to explain how it is in their self- interest.
No Woman is an Island
Women in leadership roles shouldn’t try to be super-women who master it all and do everything on their own. They need to be able to recognize when they are having a hard time and to get help when needed. Surrounding yourself with a team that is diverse with different perspectives and life experiences will lead to you making better decisions.
