Today, Let’s Recognize Women


Women have a facility for the Work-life Balance. They are often great leaders, because they are able to balance professional and personal leadership skills. It can be easier to approach a woman leader with a personal request or a sensitive question, which includes their performance at work and their work-life balance. This is because women are more proactive in becoming mentors, and sometimes they already know how to form open and communicative relationships, so the transition to mentor is easy.” – Amy Killoran, Lead Product Manager, GreenShield HealthWomen 

  1. Women can be more empathetic. “One of the criticisms that I’ve faced over the years is that I’m not aggressive enough or         assertive enough, or maybe somehow, because I’m empathetic, it means I’m weak. I totally rebel against that. I refuse to believe that you cannot be both compassionate and strong.” – Jacinda Ardern, Former Prime Minister of New Zealand
  2. Women Encourage Free Thinking  “Our emerging workforce is not interested in command-and-control leadership. They don’t want to do things because I said so; they want to do things because they want to do them.”  -Irene Rosenfeld, Former CEO, Mondelez International
  3. Women Focus on Teamwork   “The women [I’ve worked with] consistently demonstrate passion, enthusiasm and an immense capacity to serve and be served by others. I’ve observed women to make bold and wise decisions as leaders while relying on others to be part of their team. The environment is less authoritarian and more cooperative and family-like, but with solid leadership.”   Katharine M. Nohr, Chief Innovation Officer for Sports Futurists, LLC
  4. Women Can Multitask. “Women make great leaders as we are natural multitaskers. The ability to decisively and quickly respond to simultaneous and different tasks or problems at a time is a critical component to successful leadership.”  Carolann Tutera, President, SottoPelle
  5. Women Are Motivated By Challenges   “We are creative problem solvers motivated by obstacles. The desire to overcome a challenge fuels us to get things accomplished. Leaders don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.”  – Jackie Zlatanovski, Founder, Flik Flops
  6. Women are Strong Communicators  “Communication is said to be among a woman’s strongest skills — and female leaders know how to use it! Whether communicating with employers, co-workers, or partners, an open communication stream allows for clarity in executing roles and responsibilities. Female business leaders are able to communicate regularly, clearly and openly.”  – Tina Bacon-DeFrece, President, Big Frog
  7. They Dream Big  “Women make great leaders because they have an innate ability to dream big, challenge assumptions and inspire teams — and they know how to translate big ideas into concrete action and results.”  – Angela Dejene, President, Dejene Communications

  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    Since the #MeToo Movement, the plight of women is getting more attention. For instance, I watched a sitcom yesterday and the episode was devoted to equal pay for women.

    1. Thanks, Janice…love hearing that. I do think story lines are seeing us more clearly. I also am astounded when I see
      actresses in films the demean woman. Where does that come from…and I hope it will change, Beth

  2. I grew up in an era where women were expected to be housewives, and help wanted ads were split into male and female. Guess where all the good jobs were placed? I am so grateful that I’ve lived long enough to be able to enjoy and share a post like yours

    1. WOW, Alana , your words are so lovely. THANK YOU. I only wish I could do more, live up to the possibility
      of being a woman writer with a published novel. I am hanging in there, Beth

  3. Oh to imagine a world where women lead is so wonderful. I believe there would be more kindness, less violence, and much more forward thinking. Yes, many men have those qualities, but too many male world leaders we see are stuck in toxic masculinity- violent, destructive, and all about ego.
