Women In Charge

Posted by: in North West, Uncategorized

Did you know that March 8th is International Women’s Day? This year’s theme is to Empower Women.

This week’s blog is dedicated to four very special women – my RCC colleagues.

These four women are examples of “Women in Charge”, leaders in their communities.

All four encompass the 6 leadership competencies (big picture thinking, self-development, relationship building, management and governance, planning and organizing and strategic thinking). The other qualities that I admire and relate to as being good community leaders are (may include but not limited to):

  • demonstrate a healthy work/ life balance (I am
    still learning how to do that)
  • respect themselves and others
  • willing to learn something new
  • share ideas
  • value others opinions and suggestions
  • lead by example
  • confident
  • inspiring
  • positive role models and mentors for other women
  • community driven (STP’s in their own communities)
  • task oriented
  • willing to take a risk
  • willing to admit when they are wrong
  • proactive
  • independent
  • caring and trust worthy
  • team player
  • well spoken
  • knowledgeable
  • last but not least are great listeners…

The experiences and knowledge that we have shared to date have been rewarding and energizing and not to leave out memorable. I am humbled to have had the opportunity to meet four fabulous “Women in Charge” and I am a better person because of it.

As each of us move onto other chapters in our lives, the challenge will be to stay in contact. It is never good-bye but see you later!

Therefore, I am inviting people to celebrate inspiring women in their lives by sending a free International Women’s Day e-Card or honoring a woman whose efforts make a difference in your community or region; celebrate your “Women in Charge”.
