During this global health pandemic, effective leadership is more important than ever as companies face drastic changes to their operations and employees face more responsibilities at home. Technology has become an important tool in everyday life, more so than ever before.
In healthcare, technology is helping to monitor cases, share information, care for patients and ensure public safety. Outside of healthcare, the corporate world and school systems have also used technology as a means to carry on their business operations, such as using Zoom and other video conferencing websites to host virtual meetings and classroom sessions.
NAWRB’s Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Council (NDILC) created the Ten Women Leadership Principles to help women in the real estate and housing ecosystem become more effective leaders and empower other women to reach their full potential. Today, Chitra and I will discuss the leadership principles she contributed to the Ten Women Leadership Principles, including what inspired them and how women industry leaders should apply them in this new environment to define the future.
Three Rules for Defining the Future
1. Pass the Torch: Give opportunities to future generations of women. Your legacy will be the people you help along the journey.
2. Prepare for the Future: Women with advanced skills today will be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
3. Lead by Example: Inclusion isn’t enough. Press for parity and strive for excellence in everything.
