More Women Are Primed to Land CEO Roles

TextLeakyPipe

This Wall Street Journal article says that more women are primed to become CEOs in the next four years. Of the top 1000 companies now, there are 35 women CEOs; in 2017, this number is expected to grow to 70. For those of us who would like to continue to grow in our career trajectory to the C-suite, will find these numbers, while hopeful, aren’t that great. Why are there so few women CEOs? We talked about “leaky pipe” syndrome – women who leave to raise kids… and don’t come back to work. What do you think? Have you seen this happening to family, friends and colleagues?

 

Here are 3 proven ways for women to thrive at their work while handling the role of care giving at home.

 

1. Having clarity of what’s important to them. This enables to navigate work-life issues based on their values and priorities and ultimately the legacy they wish to leave behind. Their commitments and choices reflect where their heart lies. So I guess the first question to ask yourself about being in the C- suite is if that is what you want in the first place and then prepare for it.If the answer is yes, check out Seven Strategies to being a Successful Woman Leader.

 

2. Seizing the opportunities as they present themselves and say “Yes”

This can only happen if you are proactively develop the support that is needed to be successful at work and at home. This means building strong team relations, be contributing to the team and building credibility and leadership in your role at work. On the home front, garner support from family members, from parents to in-laws, spouse and children so that you get to delegate the “need to do”. Reach out too within your community or network to build your pillars of support.

 

3. Setting the boundaries and say “no” if needed.

 Say no to spending time with people who do not add positivity to your life. There is more than enough toxic lying around. Set boundaries around time, space and activities regarding when and who you would like to do things with and for. Don’t say “yes” if you really mean “no”.

Delegate the stuff that does not leverage on your strength! Get an assistant. Hire someone to clean your house (I love this suggestion!)

 

Remember you. Write a list of activities you really enjoy doing; take the top three and make sure you at least do them once a week for an hour. This allows you to keep connection with yourself and your motivations.
