Leadership Skills

June 23, 2008

Often times women entrepreneurs wonder how they can become better leaders of their companies. To develop into a better leader, I have always surrounded myself with other leaders whose track record, work ethic and successes have impressed me. I purposely created an advisory board of successful female business leaders to inspire and guide me with Women TIES ( I choose women with diverse expertise, business acumen and corporate backgrounds but all with similar dedication, drive and passion for their companies. Collectively they embody the best business leadership traits I need to grow my company. Women entrepreneurs should surround themselves with leaders who inspire them.

Secondly, look into leadership programs to enhance your skills. Last week I heard Dr. Julie Shimer, President and CEO of Welch Allyn in Skaneateles, New York, speak at an event produced by The Leadership Connection, a business run by GwenInc. This new company is providing services and programs to individuals who desire to be more confident, competent and courageous in the profession of leadership. They offer education, work sessions, events and technical assistance. Programs like this can help women entrepreneurs become the leaders they want to be.
