Zofia Sharman who leads our HR practice had an enjoyable discussion with Pinky Lilani CBE DL, Founder and Chair of women of the future, where she shared her take on women in leadership and what she feels has contributed towards making her initiative the success it is. Below is Zofia’s insights from the meeting…
I asked her what was behind (the initiative’s) strapline she uses which is “Where Kindness & Connections are Forever”, which Pinky attributes to be the founding basis of her business’s growth and where she followed this up with a quote she loves from Bejar: “The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose“.
If you had a strapline for leadership, what would it be?
Mine would be ‘sensitivity in leadership’ – where the greater the sensitivity the more the awareness. And the more aware we are the more sensing or in-tune we are with what’s actually going on to be able to lead more effectively.
For me, I love this quote - "Through awareness, we develop understanding. With understanding we develop true sight. With true sight we will seek to heal and or correct what is not true. What is not true will then be revealed in full" - Serge Benhayon
What would be your leadership strapline, and does it lead to take us the way back?
