Distinguished Leaders are Strategic Planners

They understand that strategic planning requires them to be confident and competent, as well as patient enough to be strategic and to plan. They are willing and able to analyze any and all problems systematically, weigh the options available, think outside of the box, enlist the assistance of others, use their political savvy to ensure a positive outcome, and have the courage to take strategic risks when needed. Distinguished Leaders are strategic planners.

Distinguished Leaders are Progressive Thinkers

Distinguished Leaders are progressive thinkers. Because they believe in putting people first, they advocate for equality and equity, study the various dimensions of social justice, and promote an ethic of caring and justice. They are progressive thinkers who believe women have a uniquely effective style of leading, want to hear the perspectives of others, and are strong enough to stand by their decisions no matter the outcome. They believe that trying to turn the clock back on women’s rights is detrimental to the collective well-being. As heirs of previous social justice movements, they believe that it is their moral responsibility to continue leading others toward a society where there is full equality for all. Distinguished Leaders are progressive thinkers.

Distinguished Leaders have a Strong Work Ethic

Distinguished Leaders have a strong work ethic. They like to work; it gives them a sense of accomplishment. They believe in being on time or early to work, going above and beyond, and leaving a positive legacy at each place they work. They do not “work for their weekends,” “clock watch,” “take off for their birthday,” “misuse sick leave,” or “take mental health days on the beach.” They do not believe that doing the minimum in their job is sufficient; they believe doing the minimum is unethical. Distinguished Leaders have a strong work ethic.

Distinguished Leaders are High Achievers

Distinguished Leaders are high achievers. They believe in producing quality work, analyzing multiple perspectives, seeking out unique solutions, and taking on the challenges before them. They believe that doing their best at all times is a reflection of their true self. This does not mean they are perfectionists (which comes from a place of fear; a fear of not being good enough) or martyrs (which can be based on an unhealthy sense of self-sacrifice or victimhood). They believe that in order to complete their Life’s Mission, they must achieve a lot, produce high quality work, and make a positive difference that affects as many people as possible. Distinguished Leaders are high achievers.
