Advice from Top Female Business Leaders
The Mitsubishi Electric Classic kicked off last Monday, April 9th, and concluded Saturday, April 14th, after top golfers competed over the course of the weekend to win this year’s title. While Frenik enjoyed covering the entirety of the tournament, one of the additional events stood out to us in particular: the Georgia United Credit Union Executive Women’s Day. Several women from top corporate leadership positions throughout Georgia spoke to the audience on keys to successful leadership, achievement and empowerment. Here’s some of the advice we took home after a morning with Georgia’s top female business leaders.
Implementing a growth mindset in your company now builds the foundation for staying ahead of the competitive curve in the future.
“Embrace a growth mindset”
By embracing a growth mindset, one can understand the importance of constantly moving forward and innovating. A growth mindset means that your business is always planning the next biggest thing or brainstorming for new ideas, not just plateauing during a profitable period. Implementing a growth mindset in your company now builds the foundation for staying ahead of the competitive curve in the future.
“Know your values”
By knowing and familiarizing yourself with your values, you’ll have an easier time making the right choices over the course of your career. Sometimes the right choice to make isn’t the easiest option. However, you should never waver on making a certain decision that goes against your values. Even if it might not be the popular decision or the most pleasing one to a certain employer, being consistent with your values will help you become a transparent, honest and authentic figure in your field.
“Strive to be better tomorrow than you are today.”
“DON’T JUST SETTLE FOR A MEDIOCRE FEELING OF ACCOMPLISHMENT. “
Don’t just settle for a mediocre feeling of accomplishment. Each day, you should strive to enhance your strategies, practices and tactics to a higher level than the day before. Avoid letting fulfillment or achievement flat line. By working each day to improve the internal practices, products or services of your business, you encourage all the members that contribute to your company to do the same.
