Being a women myself, it gives me great pride to see and idolize leading women from different spheres of life.
This year again, German Chancellor Angela Merkel topped the Forbes list of the world’s 100 most powerful women, ahead of Hilary Clinton, who came in second in the 2015 annual ranking. Merkel is often called the ‘The transformer of Germany’. The quality of her leadership — firm, measured and agreeable — helped return Germany to a place of respect on the on the global arena, post the financial crisis.
Other following members on the list include Melinda Gates, the co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; Janet Yellen, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair and Mary Barra, General Motors CEO.
The one common trait in all the women is ‘passion’ and ‘persistence’. Watch this video to see the most power-ful women talk on power, influence and the responsibilities that come with it.
Even our Indian leading ladies are no less. To name a few, Pratibha Patel, Chanda Kochhar, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw and Anita Dongre have made a big mark of their own. It is just a matter of time, when the women of our country will represent at a world scale and make us proud.
We all need to inculcate that sense of respect and responsibility towards the fairer sex to nurture their talent.
