Women Wisdom Snippets

Recently some friends were kind enough to hold a panel discussion at my workplace (via electronic means) for women leaders in our agency. I removed all the agency specifics, but I thought you may enjoy these bits and pieces:

  • Be your own advocate.
  • Be proactive whenever you can.
  • Decisions have to make sense for all.
  • Don’t let the culture change you, you change your culture.
  • Focus on self-issues first so you have the energy to assist others.
  • Supervisors are held to a higher level, act like it.
  • Rely on your support systems and relationships.
  • Identify who or what is causing the frustration.
    • Why is this important to you?
  • Take advantage of any work professional development dollars available.

Each one of these snippets can be great conversation starters. Do any of them speak to you?
