There is an increasing focus on diversity and equality, particularly in industries and sectors historically dominated by males. Whilst this inspirational article discusses the value of self-belief and stubbornness in a sport dominated by males, there are clear parallels to be drawn with the women in business. With research suggesting that women are not always afforded the same opportunities as their male colleagues, the value of persistence and embracing challenges as they arise should not be overlooked.
Of course, talent, dedication, and taking absolute advantage of all the opportunities I had, have made a big difference. But were I not stubborn, my career would not even have started... I had opportunities throughout my life - and grabbed on to them the best I could - and I think this is how you should manage your career: Focusing on the doors that open; always trying to anticipate the rough plays, but do not forget who you really are. Who am I? Stubborn.
