Women have come a long way both in the corporate world and as entrepreneurs. It turns out there are common traits between those women that succeed time and again in business and those that may not have as much forward momentum in gaining higher level positions as they’d like.
Some women try to blend in with men in a male-dominated workplace – but this isn’t necessary. As a matter of fact, women can bring their compassion to the table along with their confidence and do very well. Another key trait is being good – really good – at what you do. Your network is also critical – keeping a solid network of business associates on your side can only help as you navigate through to your ultimate desired position.
