The past year has added a level of stress to the daily lives of business leaders that was unimaginable until last March. As someone who has sustained achievement what advice can you give to the Top 100 Women on how they take care of themselves while trying to help so many others (home, work, community?
Cooking! Cooking is a creative outlet, an excellent way to relax and invest in your health. Our family loves to travel and taste different cultures, which during COVID was not possible. So we choose travel themes each week, i.e., Italian or Thai week, and enjoy great food while planning trips we will take when safe to do so.
How do you and your other Circle of Excellence honorees use your influence and achievement to help the women who want to grow to your level of success?
I have always enjoyed mentoring and find it to be the most direct method to help others. By sharing your story, successes and failures, you can help others learn to be resilient and reach their goals.
What do you see as the greatest issue impacting professional women today and how do you and other leaders lead change around this issue?
Stress! Professional women have been disproportionally affected by COVID, working from home adds more hours to the workday, kids are home learning virtually, aging parents need extra help during COVID.
The best way to lead around this by setting boundaries so you do not burn out. In my case, I have a flag on my bedroom door which when hung means DO NOT ENTER. I use it when I need time to myself to recharge.2
