In communion with the ladies produced the impression you depends largely on friendly and courtesy.

Tips for women XXI Century
Women XXI century gives other tips, how to achieve success in business while remaining truly representative wonderful sex. “A few simple tips will help women succeed in business with no change in its top female,” – says the publication on the internet website for those who want to be successful in business. “For some 100 years, women have made what were denied throughout the patriarchal history: the right to education, electoral and civil rights, the right toвЂ¦ enumeration would take too much space.”
1. Increase use so that you – a woman. A woman should not lead to demonstrate increased efficiency and stubbornness, the more that business – is not a harvester and do not forget, not success comes to those who work more and to those who work better. Use what you are a woman.
The absence of excessive ambition (that freydisty called “high
compensation”), the ability to communicate and gain sympathy, flexibility and the most “female diplomacy”, which is not known to all firsthand exemplary husbands – that’s what a female leader is stronger than any man.
2. Do not attempt to work as a man. Work as a woman. The fight for the right of women to work as a man started so long ago that the stories were only major milestones: the first woman scientist, businessman, politician, astronaut. In Soviet Russia gained emancipation painful manifestations such as a woman miner, road worker, kombayner etc. In doing so, everyone knows that physical strength and endurance weaker sex slightly less than strong. No need to compete with men in areas where they obviously stronger, not to prove that you can “all the same, even better.”
3. Your appearance – not an excuse for discrimination, and competitive advantage. In no case manager-a woman should not take the example of heroine movie “Office romance” (before its wonderful transfiguration). Generally, women are not all male habits and inattention to its exterior is not even the men themselves. In short, not worth copying traditional male corporate style of dress or conduct. Excessive originality in the toilets, of course, also not welcome, but let you take better for frivolous or secretary praktikantku than female Commissioner of Soviet cinema.
As with all other women, for women-head of its appearance – tools, weapons, which, incidentally, deprived of virtually all-male leaders. So, it is not mask, but rather – to use all rules of competition. Think of how many customers prefer to deal with the attractive woman, choosing between it and the leader of a male, other things being equal.
4. Emotional in the work – lack. It is known that women are often more emotional than men. To head this – lack. However, ambition, pride and desire for aggressive domination inherent in most men, completely levelling chances. For women managers tend to take emotional decision, it is important to remember such a feature and never rush, especially if there is no turning back, and this is not a malpractice incoming cleaners, and major contracts.
5. Sex employees not to take into account. A female supervisor should scrupulously avoid any “palace” in formations near its surroundings. No “first freylin” and “confidante”. Confer with specialists rather than with men or women. Besides, if you need a Women’s Council, you will be able to imagine his own.
6.Interes company – above all. Often women experience some difficulty in communicating with specialists-men working under their supervision. Especially if a woman leader is primarily marketing and management issues, while men – chiefs of divisions, departments, etc. – solve technical issues or production.
Deserve respect, forcing staff to treat yourself as if you were a man, in such a situation should not become the main objective. Main perform tasks that puts business in front of you – will not pass and a pair of months, as all employees will understand how you are performing as a boss. A very unpleasant situation may evolve in a different case: you threw all its forces to the approval authorities, and nobody will manage the business.
7. Between family and business need to find a middle ground. For most women managers is inevitable choice. For some women, children and the family is no less important, but rather, even more important than business. The only board that can give a woman who is forced to choose between work and family, the choice will be invariant. That is between A and B need to choose S. Try to outwit the situation, while remaining a charming woman, wonderful mother, wonderful wife and successful professional leader.
