As we get ready for Women’s Month next month, 600 Global is sharing some of our favorite quotes from inspirational female business leaders. Enjoy the first of this three-part series!
“As a leader, it’s a major responsibility on your shoulders to practice the behavior you want others to follow.” — Himanshu Bhatia, Founder and CEO, Rose International.
Leadership by example is the name of the game at 600 Global, which is why we really love this quote. It is a standard at our firm that every member of the leadership team behave in such a way that is worthy of being emulated by others. What does this look like? It looks like maintaining a positive attitude, possessing a strong work ethic, treating our clients and their customers with the utmost respect, being on time for all meetings, helping others in the company, and so on!
Every manager at our firm once started at the bottom and worked his or her way up. So when a manager is coaching a newer employee, for example, his advice is coming from a place of experience. Having actually walked in the newer employee’s shoes, the manager never asks anything of his team member that he wouldn’t do (or hasn’t already done) himself.
“If you are committed to creating value and if you aren’t afraid of hard times, obstacles become utterly unimportant. A nuisance perhaps, but with no real power. The world respects creation; people will get out of your way.” — Candice Carpenter Olson, Co-CEO, Fullbridge
This amazing quote highlights that one’s perception becomes his reality. Success-minded people are not afraid of obstacles because they view them as just minor bumps along the road, not roadblocks. They tackle any challenges as they come their way, and keep pushing with vigor. At 600 Global we wholeheartedly believe that as long as a person’s goals are bigger than her excuses, she will succeed. Remember, when you’re fully committed to your goals, everything else is just a blip on the radar.
