Why Now is a Great Time to be a Woman in Leadership
Women in Leadership – This may just be the most under-publicized opportunity ever! No one is talking about this!
The stats* are clear from many different sources* that increasing the number of women in leadership will have a positive impact on your business. The stats confirm they have a positive impact on engagement, in creating a positive environment, on communication, and importantly on the bottom line!
In fact, my research clearly shows that female leaders are much more aligned with a New Leadership paradigm which is needed to challenge the current, broken structure of leadership we are seeing around us in the world today!
So, ladies, this is creating a massive career opportunity for you, but no one seems to be talking about it! This opportunity is developing because everything is now pointing in one direction! The stats are increasingly well known, unconscious bias has increasingly been accepted and quotas (love them or hate them) are now falling into place around the world.
Couple all of this with the fact that there are comparatively few experienced women in leadership; you are a scarce resource; whether you see it or this means you are in demand! Are you ready for this opportunity? You get the opportunity to choose where you invest your energy and your time!
So why not go out and choose a business to invest in where you can:
– create impact;
– leverage your strengths;
– feel excited;
– feel supported and appreciated.
This will enable you to feel you can contribute your best and feel fulfilled. Is this not what you wish for yourself? However, you need to recognize that you may not find this in your current job or your current business. The stats from Trust Radius in 2021 show that 69% of women see no clear path forward in their current business!
Therefore, if you don’t believe you can make the most of this opportunity in your current business then your need to go craft the opportunity for yourself somewhere else! There are so many exciting businesses doing great things towards making the world a better place! Go challenge yourself to find a place where you are excited by the challenge, appreciated for your contribution, and where you have the potential to thrive!
There will never be the perfect time to try and find something new so permit yourself, as a first step, to go and look around. Why not spruce up your CV or speak to a recruiter? Figure out what excites you and then look for exciting purpose-driven businesses with strong core values. Be prepared to be vulnerable during your interviews and interview them, as much as they interview you!
It’s time for all of us to step boldly into being role models for future female leaders! Start treating yourself, your strengths, and what’s important to you as your most valuable asset! This is how you can create an impact in making the world a better place! You are worth it!

Good luck! Love,
