Bringing People Together ...

Exactly what Eve Simon did yesterday with the MOMS WHO LEAD Summit. A great experience during a very intensive 12 hours, with a lot of great MOMS who have shared their situation, experiences, concerns, successes, challenges, dreams, perspectives and wishes with us. Worth listening and learning.

The father panel was fun as well. Here some quick answers to the three main questions. There is definitely much more to say, but we do not have enough space here 🤔:

  1. Why we need moms in leadership roles --> add a different perspective to the table, one way to approach the "war for talent", bring people together, mothers are servant leaders - the agile leadership model we need
  2. Why we don't see mothers on the top --> the glass ceiling of the old white men, the dual burden of work and family, missing self-confidence, resistance to change in companies, too much talking and too less doing, ....
  3. What needs to change to thrive for sustainable growth including mothers voices --> "be the change you want to see from others", select the right role models, be authentic and diverse, be a self-confident you with some luck, be the right person at the right place at the right time, ...

Looking forward to the next summit, maybe in person again after COVID-19. We will wait and see.
