As a society, we have made incredible strides towards gender equality, but we're still not quite at the point where men and women are allowed to compete on a level playing field. As any successful businesswoman would tell you, when you're born a female in what is still very much a man's world, you have to fight that little harder, go that extra mile, and prove yourself a little more than if you were a male. Leading digital visionary Karishhma Mago believes that a surefire way to accelerate the process would be for more organizations to create a supportive work environment and promote women to leadership roles without judging.
"Promoting more women to leadership roles makes so much sense, on so many levels," explained Karishhma Mago. Women are usually well-versed in adversity and used to winning against incredible odds. "When you bring a woman on a leadership role, you're bringing someone who knows what it means to challenge the status quo and someone who will never quit," adds Karishhma.
As the CEO of Facilius Inc., Karishhma Mago knows what it takes to succeed and confidently lead a team that prides itself on its ability to solve any problem concerning the multifaceted world of PR, social media, and digital brand building. Karishhma is universally recognized as a self-assured and dynamic leader who inspires others to follow in her footsteps.
"I think the trick to leading is not to micromanage. You have to respect others and allow them space to fulfill their potential," explained Karishhma. "Women are born empaths. The habit of encouraging and nurturing talent in others is a typical female trait, as is the tolerance, patience, and understanding that good leaders need when a member of their team makes mistakes. I feel if more organizations were to adopt the strategy of placing females in leadership roles, it would certainly pay dividends."
Infectious in her enthusiasm on why women make great leaders, Karishhma Mago added, "I think what women leaders bring to the table is an extremely inclusive brand of leadership. Women love to see others succeed and are good talkers and listeners who have a habit of taking on board everyone's points of view and thoughts before making the best possible decision. I believe as we head into a world that is slowly adjusting to a 'new normal,' we are going to see more and more females appointed in prestigious leadership capacities."
