Power has no gender. Yet, we are so conditioned to associate leadership with masculine traits. Check your unconscious bias. Avoid diminishing yourself and your capabilities – it serves no one and there’s nothing holy in it! Avoid comparing your weakness to other people’s strengths. Do not be afraid! Never discount the cost of inaction. Own the value you bring. Plan your career – get on boards to learn and expand your network. Read this interesting research from Zenger and Folkman who facilitated 360 assessments with over 60,000 men and women and compared their leadership traits. The findings are significant and leave little room for doubt about women’s capabilities and potential!
