5 Tips for Career and Leadership Success

From our point of view, the most important thing is to develop your leadership strategy - Know your abilities and skills and play to your strengths. This includes:

  1. No macho leadership: From our research and our teaching and consulting experience, we know some organizations in which older women considered it necessary to adopt existing leadership styles for men / macho; their goal is to be as hard if not tougher than men. We believe it is possible to take a different approach, and maybe the younger generation of female executives may feel safe enough to do so. We would also give some advice - Macho leadership should not be seen as an "ideal" as it often creates a toxic culture of fear that is not healthy for the organization.
  2. Be clear about your personal leadership vision: Understand your preferred leadership style - and develop the ability to do so when needed. Be honest with yourself about your preferences, any restrictions and work with others to get feedback.
  3. Be authentic: Be true to yourself and feel comfortable with your leadership style.
  4. Explore your leadership image together with others: > Ask for feedback on your style and impact and the impression you make.
  5. Train your voice:  Many women have high voices that are thin and therefore not easy to hear. Therefore, we recommend women exercise their voices and use them to make themselves heard. Those who do not make themselves heard and do not speak with a certain amount of authority will not be fully respected.
