Aspiring Women Leaders: The “Big Five”
Women are playing an increasing and significant role in today’s economy, and their salaries and spending capacity are critical to the country’s economic well-being. From a consumer perspective, women hold a lot of clout. Much has been lauded about women’s presence, and performance, both at home, and at the workplace. It has of no doubt that women, whether as home-makers or career women, could contribute to our society in one way, or another. However, the opportunities available to women remain a subject of interest locally, and internationally. In 1979, Margaret Thatcher became the first female British Prime Minister. It took a further 26 years for Britain to get its second female prime minister. In corporate leadership positions, the percentage of men to women could be alarmingly skewed. What does this mean? Women in Leadership: Is the Glass Ceiling Cracked? The Five C’s of Concern: Comfort; Confidence; Commitment; Consequence; Contemplate Findings have shown that to be perceived as competent and worthy of funding, women are expected to out-perform or be exceptionally innovative. Fortunately, most women excel at teamwork. Interventions by women are found to be effective because most women could stay very calm (despite the provocation) and be patient. The Five C’s of Conduct: Charisma; Communication; Connection; Consistency; Contribution Although there is a steady rise of women who break the glass ceiling, statistics show that we still have a long way to go. Whether you believe it is nature, nurture or both that influence the behaviors and habits of women, there is no denying that women often collide with the glass ceiling in their climb up the corporate ladder. Perhaps if more women learn what it takes to wield that sledgehammer over the next 20 years, there would be enough women in time to shatter that glass ceiling for good.
