Editor’s note: In recognition of the industry ideals reflected in the PRSA 2014 International Conference theme “Leading the Way: Fearless Future for PR,” we’ve invited industry-leading female CEOs to share their inspiration, tips and advice on how to grow, succeed and advance to the highest levels in the profession. Follow the “Leading the Way: Lessons from Female CEOs” series using the hashtag #PRLessonsInLeadership.
When asked to write this piece, I was somewhat hesitant.
Not that I don’t have plenty of advice to share. It’s just I’ve never thought about gender as a qualifier for leadership advice.
