Women In The Work Place
The majority of my career most of my colleagues have been women. When you connect with your co-workers it is an uplifting experience. However, in some instances, it can turn into a competitive and hostile work environment. I regard myself as a professional and a peer at my current job. My management position affords me the opportunity to motivate and assist people with reaching their potential. Many people need a little push to grow. However, when you are using your light to help other individuals find theirs, some may try to dim yours.
Unfortunately, sometimes it is our sisters that are the first to try to blow out that candle.
Many of us have read and watched reports about women still not earning or being considered for promotions in comparison to their male counterparts. This would have many of us believe that women in the workforce would work together to motivate one another, but more often than not that is not the case.
The Struggle Continues
When women enter the workforce and slowly move up the career ladder some forget how hard the climb was. This causes them to leave the sisterhood and hinder the development of other women, who are still making the climb. Success is not easy, but if the door was opened for you, should you not leave it open for your sisters?
We need to motivate each other for greater success instead of tearing each other down. We do not need to fight over scraps, there is plenty of food on the table. I have learned that best way to lead is by example and I am here to motivate my sisters and once the door is open, I will invite them in to enjoy the feast. In the meantime stay blessed.
