Tips For Women In The Corporate World

Women make up 59 percent of the college-educated, entry-level workforce, but the business world still runs by men's rules -- many of which remain unspoken and unclear to women. Women need to continue to move the needle toward improved acceptance of what they add as business associates. To do so, they need to embrace their own strengths while also learning the unspoken rules enforced by their male colleagues.

Do you ever feel powerless in a business meeting simply because you're a woman? You walk in with confidence, but then you're not taken seriously by your male colleagues or are shut down by opposing comments or interruptions. You want to scream with frustration!  Yet women hold more power than their male coworkers, or even women themselves, will admit. Businessmen are quietly in awe of the gifts their women colleagues possess, although don't expect them to share their admiration with you.

Women are imbued with the powers of relationships, mindfulness, and inspiring trust. While we don't think these are a big deal because they come as second nature, they're foreign to most of our male coworkers. If we could bottle them up and sell them to men, they'd be standing in line. They can't do interpersonal relationships like we do.
