Work Like A Woman – Mary Portas
Mary Portas is a great advocate for women in the workplace, as well as business in general. When her book came out a few years ago, I couldn’t wait to get my mitts on it. She calls it a manifesto for change to both the corporate space and society as she talks about her own learnings and the development of her own feminine leadership. Having played by the known corporate rules of resilience, aggression and competitiveness and achieved a lot, she realised that she could only do that for so long and she decided to listen to her own natural, feminine instincts and qualities to build her own successful businesses. Through using those more feminine qualities around collaboration, empathy and instinct, she has built a place to work that not only gets results but feels good to be part of. Great examples of alternative working models that work.
