One of my favorite parts of the Women Managers Leadership Cohorts is our wrap-up session where we have a panel of executive women share their personal stories of moving from their first manager role to the senior level roles they have today.
When I call the Women Executives in my network to ask if they’d like to be part of the panel, I always get a resounding YES. These are busy, high-profile women who know the value of giving back.
I’m grateful for their willingness to share and their commitment to advancing women leaders.
The Executive panel session is conversational, intimate and a wonderful opportunity to learn the behind-the-scenes stories of challenge and success. I always learn something new about building a career and navigating change.
I thought I’d share a few words of wisdom that stood out during our recent Executive Panel which included:
Executive Panel Words Of Wisdom & Encouragement
"Always be true to your authentic self. Your personal power resides with who you are."
"Remember, as the leader you are not required to be the subject matter expert. Rely on your team."
"Speak up—Your point of view matters and makes a difference."
"Ask for help—People want to help you—Let them!"
"Collect words and phrases from leaders you like and try those phrases out for yourself."
"As a leader, you are successful when those around you are successful."
"Don’t be afraid to try new things—It’s the fastest way to learn and grow!"
"Take the leap into new opportunities."
If you’d like to hear directly from our next Executive Panel, join the upcoming
Women Managers Cohort that kicks off on October 13, 2021.
You’ll enjoy learning and growing with like-minded women committed to taking charge of the next steps in their careers. It’s an easy way to build your professional network and know you are not alone.
