Women as Managers

It’s not a novelty any more to see women occupying high corporate positions; however, if we take a look at what statistics have to say on this, it can be concluded that only 5% of privileged positions are held by women.

Here is a collection of tips and guidelines offered by best women managers around the globe:

Choose your associates carefully – if in a position to choose, always work with competent people and do not feel jeopardized if they are more experienced or competent than you. Make the most of their talents and learn from them. Present your advantages and talents, but at the same time, be ready to respect the ones possessed by others.

Be polite – try to show respectfulness and politeness at all times and be careful how you treat your subordinates and people, in general. Such behavior is not just part of workplace etiquette but is expected in any kind of interpersonal relationships.

Motivate your team – your team is your most valuable asset. Once you have set the expectations and goals, give your team members freedom to express themselves and their creativity. As a reward, they will help you achieve great results.

Be persistent and believe in yourself – setbacks are normal and they are human. As there will always be obstacles in your business and personal life, do not let them get you down. On the contrary, let them make you even stronger.
