"They're so advanced at managing their time -- raising a family, taking care of kids, doing whatever else is necessary -- and doing something else, in addition to that, like running a business," he said. "So maybe it's their ability to manage time that is really taking them ahead in running small, large and mid-cap businesses."
"I think being a mom and running a successful household, having the qualities where you're good at nurturing are really key to running a good business. Because if you're nurturing you can inspire and you can develop your employees," Noonan said. "And if you have employees that listen to you and like you and are inspired by you, they are better workers, and I think you're more successful."
Do you think Mr. Wonderful is right about a difference between how men and women lead and interact?
As a long-time career woman and mother, I am so sick and tired of hearing about gender gaps and how women are superior to men in every way, but yet, constantly being discriminated against. I know this is one of the current popular PC topics, but I'm not a fan of PC.
First, this article is not only far fetched, it's blatantly discriminatory. It implies that a) all woman are or would be good mothers b) being a mother automatically qualifies a woman to run any corporation exceedingly well c) fathers are incapable of nurturing and d) men are, in general, are inferior to women.
Second, this incessant obsession with the notion that only women are "victims" of unequal pay is self-defeating. I wonder if women who subscribe to this never-ending victim status ever consider the fact that male employees are also discriminated against -- in pay, hiring and promotions.
If a woman wishes to achieve in business (or anything else, for that matter), may I suggest that the first step is to quit whining and playing the victim whenever something doesn't go your way.
In other words -- Grow Up Girls, and get over yourselves!
