As the problems we face today – from our local communities to the workplace, and the global stage – require diverse leaders who have a variety of skill sets, women leadership
will bring the additional skills needed, as well as a different perspective to drive effective solutions. Female leadership is revolutionizing the game by adding value to the way the world does business.
Having more women in the workplace can lead to significantly higher productivity and efficiency
Although women make up 50% of the workforce, have higher education levels than men, are often the primary breadwinners in their families, ensuring progress entail removing the well-known obstacles to womens’ leadership, that include slow career advancement, fewer raises and promotions, and even more obstacles for women of color.
Securing Advancement Will Require a Shift in Perception
Whereas men think that the workplace is equitable and gender-diversified, women view integration and gender diversification in the Workplace as lacking improvement in that realm. Women also see a workforce that lacks fairness and offers less support. Women’s view, in that respect, is more precise, granted the lingering impediments to women’s advancement.
Women must not only be better represented in leadership in companies, as only one in ten senior leaders is a woman, but they must also receive the support that they need in their day-to-day work as on the road to advancement. Although it’s been known that employees who receive more advice from managers are more likely to say they’ve been promoted in the last two years, women are less likely to receive advice from managers and senior leaders on how to advance. Likewise, employees who interact regularly with senior leaders are more likely to aspire to be top executives, women are less likely to.
Until we change the world to reach the 50/50 parity, where both genders value each contribution and shed the concept of living in a male-dominated culture, we will not unlock nor start benefiting from the full potential of women. Raising awareness of the true status of women in leadership, celebrating their accomplishments, recognizing that more women are needed in leadership, and working together will help women gain confidence and the skills they need to overcome barriers and reach their ultimate goals.
DELIGHT EXISTING CUSTOMERS IS EASIER AND MORE IMPORTANT THAN ATTRACTING NEW ONES
Instead of spending lots of money on trying to attract new customers to a business, focus on delighting your existing (or ex) customers instead. Providing them with a great customer experience will turn them into promoters and evangelists.
Being as connected as we are today, thanks to technology, the sharing of positive experience is instantaneous and can potentially be a favorable post going viral through social media highlighting your meticulous service to millions of people
Moreover, following a healthy nutrition regime includes choosing plenty of vegetables, fruit, whole grain, beans, and beyond…. and only seldom consuming foods that are high in added sugar, saturated fat and sodium.
Granted the food you eat has a direct impact on the parts of the brain that regulate mood, maintaining stable blood sugar through regular and proper nutrition help us feel better overall. Thus, healthy foods, such as fruits, whole grains and vegetables, are rich in vitamins and minerals that have been associated with an overall lower risk of depression, as have foods rich in omega-3 fats, such as nuts, salmon and other fatty fish.
Consuming healthy foods, including protein-rich diet as well as fish and dairy that contain omega-3 fatty acids and magnesium, can reduce stress by decreasing the body’s stress hormone( cortisol ) level, and bring true happiness as well as a greater ability to focus your thoughts on productivity.
Keep a Healthy Weight
According to a 2012 study in the Journal of Health Economics, the average obese person spends $2,741 more on health care per year than a normal-weight counterpart. Thus, simple healthy choices such as replacing soda with water can help with regulating your body weight and can, in turn, help lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of Type 2 diabetes, according to the Obesity Action Coalition.
Likewise, consuming veggies instead of chips, and eating a side salad in place of fries will also help you achieve your desired weight level, and, in the process, can also help you save money.
Being Healthy is Rewarding
Eating right, by consuming foods that are rich in micronutrients – like vitamins and minerals, help improve the health of both – thin and overweight people.
Whereas, eating healthy servings of fruits and vegetables that are rich in healthy vitamins and healthy minerals every day can lower the risk of dying from any health-related cause, deficiencies in healthy vitamin and healthy mineral can lead to premature death risks.
Longer Life Expectancy
A combination of exercise and diet of fruit and vegetables, and omega-3 fats from fish and olive oil was found to be associated with extended life expectancy for aging women.
Being an important part of healthy nutrition, whole grains ( Brown Rice, Quinoa, Barley, Oat, Bulgur Wheat, and beyond….) are rich in protein, fiber, antioxidants, b-vitamins, and trace minerals (such as: iron, zinc, copper, magnesium).
Moreover, consuming more whole grains can help you lose weight, reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and certain cancers, improve bowel movements and also promote the growth of healthy bacteria in the colon, help you feel lighter and more energized.
The average adult should eat at least three servings of whole grains daily to improve their health as well as their energy levels and their weight.
Coupled with exercising, whole grains can help you attain your ideal weight while improving your health at the same time.
