3 Areas To Model (6/14)

One of the gifts that we have in society today is bringing to light some of the important, yet sensitive areas, such as women in leadership. The three areas I always model being an executive and board member in tech are the following:

  1. Presence: Do not show up in meetings or in any interaction using your gender as leverage. Show up using your knowledge and wisdom. Gender doesn’t matter when you demonstrate intelligence.
  2. Confidence: Do not appear docile when sharing an idea. Tech companies expect transparency and boldness. Model courage and fortitude.
  3. Influence: Do not doubt your value. Be in tune with yourself and those around you and inspire change. This demonstrates high EQ. It works.
