Susan McGalla has been such a good business leader that she has proven that women can own businesses and lead. However, she does not see the women’s leadership initiative as the solution. For one thing, she sees that not every woman gets an opportunity to be a leader. Another thing that she sees is that not everyone is cut out to be a leader. There are some people who are better of being followers. Another thing to consider is that women still have to deal with the glass ceiling. However, there are networks and initiatives for women to join. The only issue is that there is one important thing that is missing.
One thing that is missing from women’s leadership initiative and networks is support. Women need the support of one another if they are hoping to succeed as leaders or in other higher positions. While Susan McGalla was able to achieve this without the support that is needed, it is still important for women to have at least one person that they can rely on for all kinds of support which includes financial, emotional, mental, and moral support. This can be very hard to find when women are rarely in the senior executive positions.
One thing that Susan McGalla believes can help women is a sponsorship program. If a woman is being sponsored, then they are going to be given the right advice on what they can do to move forward. One thing a sponsor can also do is help women find some kind of opportunity to help them move forward. They can help women find the right types of projects to get involved in so that they will be able to make a great amount of income and be able to support themselves. One thing that women need are ideas on how to move forward.
