3 Important Values For Successful Businesswomen
We have all heard about the difference between a leader and a boss – one teaches you and tells you why, and the other simply tells you what to do. Being a leader is not only beneficial to you, your staff, or colleagues, but also to your family. By guiding and leading them, showing them the way, they will respond positively to how you do things.
Being a female entrepreneur for quite some time now, you would definitely know the importance of having personal values and actually apply them in your life. They are the core of how you do your business and say a lot about you as a person.
So, here is our business advice for women: 3 core values you need to improve your leadership skills.
1. Integrity – yes, I’ve placed this first on purpose. Honesty is a vital core value in yourself and the company. It reminds and drives people to act with realness, and perform in truth. When you are honest with yourself, you would know and understand your strengths and weaknesses and proceed to address them.
And when you act the same way you are at home and at work, your family and staff will respect you more. This allows them to see that you are a genuine person in all areas of your life.
2. Discipline– Without this core value, it would be easy for you to procrastinate and make excuses. This will lead your business to stagnate and flop. When you strongly apply discipline in your work, you would be able to handle your schedule and finances better. Discipline in a way is like keeping promises to yourself. It helps you to move faster and further in your career.
3. Humility – It keeps your feet firmly on the ground. This core value is needed especially when you’re in a business that involves people. Businesses, whether in service or retail, need customers/clients to stay alive. When you appreciate the people who have stuck by you through the hustle and grind, it makes you humble knowing that you couldn’t have succeeded on your own.
So, when your ego starts to inflate, pop it right away. Nobody likes being around a person with a big head. Self-centeredness is a sign of selfishness. Remember to also give value to your customers and clients, and they will be more than willing to give you something in return.
Ultimately, having non-negotiable strong values encourages clients to stick with you and your company and promotes employee retention. It is the overall glue that holds a business together. If you haven’t set your core values yet, it’s best you sit down in front of a mirror and write them down. If you have a hard time discovering it yourself, I can help guide you in the right direction.
