International Women's Day 2016

It is that day again...

Tuesday 8th March is when we celebrate the outstanding leadership skills of women leaders worldwide.  I think we should do so EVERY day!

Leadership is all about ability, personality, skill, energy, focus, drive, nerve, vision and communication.

It is a shame that we differentiate between women and men leaders as to me, a leader is a leader.  I make no distinction between men and women in business.  Whoever does the job best is the one, as far as I am concerned.

Highlighting 'women' leaders is focusing on the sexual difference (which is irrelevant) and lets be under no illusion, women still have to prove themselves more, women have to achieve more to be recognised, women have to put up with all manner of crap JUST TO GET TO DO THE JOB.  They put up with a lot of pressure and antagonism from other women let alone men.

It is BS!

It can be a constant battle for women to be seen and heard seriously in the workplace and I am saying, as a male leader, trainer, speaker or whatever you want to call me, one thing and one thing only:


Women leaders are LEADERS.  Stop the labels, stop the distinction, stop the crap!

Women Leaders are Leaders who just happen to be women and I think that collectively we should do everything we can to bring more women in to business.  Break down the barriers, break down the distinctions, break down the protocols that preclude, quit with making life and business difficult and let women of the world do what they do best: and THAT is LEAD.

Women of Inspiration...who inspire me...who are LEADERS!
