Top Leadership Qualities:
Women bring diversity in perspectives and decision making which becomes very crucial in today's world, where success is dependent on an organizations ability to constantly re-invent itself and stay tuned to consumers preferences. As the role of a woman becomes more important in purchasing decisions, companies can't ignore that sensibilities and consumer insights that women bring to the board
What I Would Have Done Differently:
people make career choices not based on passion or aptitude. And that to me is a big mistake. A career in this field for me was by choice.In the early stages of my career felt like a thankless job, where you only get blamed for things that went wrong but no credit came your way for a job well done. You can get through this phase if you like what you do. Passion helps you sustain and recognitions will soon follow. As long as you like what you do and look forward to going back to work every day you are in the right place.
Advice For Fellow Leaders:
HR should keep a neutral and non-bias attitude. Keep communication to your employees through all possible communicating option. The old stigma ' we meet HR only at the time of entry and exit' should be totally removed.
Career Aim is to..
A lot more wiser, because you learn so much with every passing day, as cliche as this may sound. The pace of change today is so steep, that one has to constantly upgrade their skills and stay tuned to the changing world. The time frame for a change in paradigm is as small as a couple of years now. So I'm going to resist the temptation to do crystal ball gazing.
In the early stages to my career I found it quite annoying to be asked question about my commitment to my career, how long I planned to work, was I serious about my career, my marriage plans??!!! I found it really strange that I had to try extra hard to prove my allegiance to my career as opposed to a male counterpart whose commitment was a given. But once you have put in a certain number of years in the industry, I guess they stand testimony to your commitment and these questions disappear. Many employers now are sensitive to such discrimination but its still not unlikely to encounter such questions.
A Fine Balance:
especially in the early stages of your career. But planning and prioritizing can make life a little less painful. It helps to anticipate issues and address them well in advance, rather than waiting for them to pop up at the last minute. The organization's culture is also a big deciding factor. It's quite unfair when organizations make employees feel like having a personal life is a sin. Senior managers should guard against falling into this trap. I have been lucky to have spent half of my working years at here Work Life balance is upheld as one of its guiding principles. With flexible working hours, telecommuting options it becomes easier to maintain a balance.
