I’m Not Jaded: Don’t Discourage Our Future Female Leaders | Successful women | Scoop.it
Sometimes it's so easy to fall into negativity that we forget how much energy it saps from us. That's why we started InPower Women, to help restart the dialog about women, leadership and power. That's also why we love this post by Kelsey, who reminds us that when we use powerless language to describe ourselves…

Women Leaders Must Dive In, Not Just Lean In (Part 1)

Women Leaders Must Dive In, Not Just Lean In (Part 1) | Successful women | Scoop.it
There is a women’s leadership movement afoot that needs to transition from underground grassroots to mainstream establishment. This isn’t about goodwill, preferences or representation. Mobilizing women into leadership positions is mandatory for sustainable economic growth, global competitiveness and innovation across all industries. It’s time for women to dive-in, head-first and heart-strong. They must actively deploy their unique ability to see with wide-angle vision and sow opportunities with a passionate pursuit – as do all great pioneers that change the status quo and build new bridges. International Women’s Day, recently celebrated on March 8, reminded us of “the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.” Women are ready to live with an entrepreneurial spirit and activate their ability to connect the dots of resources and relationships to create and sustain momentum. Women wired to naturally promote the spirit of giving and lead to leave a legacy will cultivate continuous impact and influence in the industries they serve.

Women’s Leadership

Women’s Leadership | Successful women | Scoop.it
There is a silver lining to exclusion: Women, long outsiders, have had no choice but to think, act, and lead in out-of-the-box ways. That is why they are now poised to change our institutions for the better.
AnYes van Rhijn's insight:

Despite everything that has been done, there still is a huge women's leadership gap. An interesting parallel is made here: "No business would tolerate a similar lack of achievement with respect to sales, revenues, earnings or any other metrics commonly used to measure business success"...

Cornelia Strandh's curator insight, March 30, 12:07 PM

"One thing is clear: in an evolving global landscape in which we are becoming more interconnected, technologically advanced and transparent, the requirements for effective leadership are changing. Skills that people said in our research are often perceived as more feminine -- like openness, collaboration and empathy are proving extremely valuable in driving innovation. Parlaying this modern leadership paradigm like Eriko did makes for better business, regardless of one's gender. Flexibility, diversity of thought and compassion are no longer a nice-to-have. It is an imperative for both men and women alike to embody the ideal modern leader in order to not fall behind."
