According to the Entrepreneur’s Source, a U.S.-based business coaching firm, women naturally excel in three key skill areas that propel women in business: communication, initiative and emotional intelligence.
These skills are evidenced in the work of Helen Doron, CEO of Helen Doron Group. Doron, a linguistic scientist, has built an international franchise that has launched the careers of many women who also excel in these business skills. The 30-year-old global children’s educational franchise company empowers women and enables them to succeed in business.
A glance at the roster of the company shows that 66% of the top management of the company are female, 70% of the 90 Master Franchisors and 90% of the 800 Learning Centre franchises are owned and run by women.
“Firstly, women excel at multi-tasking, a vital tool for running any efficient business,” she stated. “Women also seem to be more intuitive than men, or at least more willing to listen to their inner voices. This makes them more sensitive to nuance, picking up those subtle signals, which can be an important information resource in business dealings.
“Women also tend to be more patient and open to sharing their knowledge with work colleagues, thus expanding and reinforcing their networking system. In some cases, a woman’s more compassionate nature better motivates employees and helps attract customers,” Doron said.
