Getting to a leadership position in the business world is never easy. Even though the percentage of women in the talent pipeline has steadily increased over the last three decades, there are still large gaps from entry-level right through to top-executive positions. However research has shown that businesses with diverse workforces can outperform their more homogeneous peers and are better positioned to adapt to a rapidly changing global business environment.
Many women have learned that career success is all about embracing what makes their perspectives unique, and overcoming the doubts and fears that keep them from reaching their full potential. Successful women often credit luck for changing their lives, but there’s so much more to the making of a women leader than luck. Luck is ultimately about perseverance, dedication and getting ready for that “lucky” break!
