Mrs Mawuena Trebarh, Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, has dared women in leadership positions to move beyond setting goals and visions to practicing leadership qualities that yielded tangible results.
She said women ought to demonstrate beyond the mundane leadership traits of merely setting goals and visions to accepting and embracing change in society and in the corporate world.
“Female leaders have to be action and results-oriented to be able to meet the demands on them,” she said.
Mrs Trabarh said this on Saturday at a conference marking the International Women’s Day on the topic: “Women in Leadership; Redefining Excellence.”
She advised women leaders to re-examine their leadership roles which must encapsulate serious preparation, hard work, consistency, humility and sacrifice.
She called on women to learn to “put first things first” by setting eyes on those things that are relevant and develop strategies to achieve them no matter the setbacks.
Mrs Trebarh said it was only through setting priorities right and making prudent choices that could catapult women to greater heights and excellence.
The conference was organised by Purposed, United and Relevant Partnership for Leaders and Enterprise (PURPLE) to mark the International Women’s Day. GNA
