Stretching Yourself

“Women who stretched themselves said that they enjoyed more success compared to those who didn't keep stretching.”

So said Nellie Borrero, director of global inclusion and diversity at Accenture, in Roaring All the Way to the Top, an article in the May 2009 issue of T&D magazine.

Based on her online survey of 3,600 global business executives, it was also reported that:
  • 78% of women who are are very successful agreed that "I am learning new skills to move to the next level." 67% of women, overall, agreed.
  • 81% of women who are very successful agreed that "I take on additional responsibilities and complexities to advance." 67% of women, overall, agreed.
  • 75% of women who are very successful agreed that "I regularly stretch myself beyond my comfort zone." 61% of women, overall, agreed.
  • 65% of women who are very successful agreed that "I regularly ask my supervisors for new challenges." 50% of women, overall, agreed.
  • 76% of women who are very successful agreed that "I am willing to consider a new position or role to advance." 67% of women, overall, agreed.

Draw your own conclusions.
