Leadership Lesson {Advice from Women to Women}

At a recent Women's Leadership Symposium, I garnered advice from the closing panel - all amazing women leaders.  Here's what that powerhouse of a panel had to say:
  • Seek role models.
  • You only lead if others follow.
  • We are given two ears and one mouth - listen twice as much as you speak.
  • Be generous with your time - in the community, towards your passion, & building your skill set.
  • It never matters what happens to you; it is how you respond.
  • Make mistakes and learn from them.
  • Never compromise your values.
  • Be respectful; Tackle an issue, not each other.
  • Make yourself valuable. Take the job no one wants and excel at it.
Which one do you excel at?  Which one could use some improvement?  My personal favorite is tackle an issue, not each other.
