In addition to being consistent and dedicated to the job, behind the success of the female leaders is a solid family and good health.
Be consistent with what you think is right
Mrs. Mai Kieu Lien, the General Director of Vinamilk, entered the dairy industry from the encouragement from her father with the aim to improve the malnutrition of the children.
From that encouragement, Mrs. Lien advised the women in particular and the business leaders in general not to let go of their will, to be consistent with what they think is right. “I think people who have the volition, knowledge and passion will succeed,” Mrs. Lien said at the Women’s
Summit 2018 event of Forbes Vietnam.
Regarding the secret of leadership, Mrs. Lien said that the leaders have to be honest, to make example, to prove the ability that they are able to lead the team, to help people to have a better life. For her, women in particular are more dominant than men in terms of listening and understanding, whatever they will decide, they will always listen to the opposite person, which they will accompany others based on that.
Be dedicated to your role
Mrs. Nguyen Bach Diep – the Chairman and CEO of FPT Retail said that if you have chosen a position, you must focus on doing there.
This female entrepreneur revealed that she was not too concerned when being called “the steel woman”. She shared that “I just believe in myself and whether I do something right or wrong, effective or not.”
Mrs. Diep is interested in the three core values of the company that she is leading, including commitment to customers; respect, honesty; and take responsibility. “In addition to these three values, the HR policy must be built on a transparent, non-emotional basis,” she said.
Family is the foundation for success
Mrs. Thai Van Linh, the Director of Strategy and Operation VinaCapital Fund Management, advises the women to set goals which are higher than what they can.
With that, she emphasized that her family, especially her husband, was the most important thing in her life and career. The spousal relationship was the most important partnership. The two people must be honest and open to each other, which was the way to be successful, she shared.
Create luck from your hard work
Mrs. Crystal Lam, the CEO of Vinawood, said that women must listen twice more than saying. According to her, in life, if we are lucky, we must make use of our hard work.
The three main factors that play a big role when you make decisions were the core values of the decision, whether that decision is for yourself or for society more; and finally, how to carry out that decision.
Do not give up on your goals when facing difficulties
Mrs. Tran Thi Thanh Dinh, the Deputy Chairman of Ericsson Vietnam, advised the businesswomen not to give up on their goals.
She said that at the beginning of her career, as a female engineer in a mostly-male environment, her professional skill was the most important factor for her to create her own value.
“We can delay but never let go. That is the secret to our success”, she said.
Train your health
“My life is not very healthy,” said Mrs. Nguyen Linh Chi, the Managing Director (Digital Media) of Havas Media Vietnam, talked about the time before taking up jogging.
“Running helps me improve myself a lot. I always tell my friends to listen to the body and have a healthy life”, she said.
Outstanding in the community of jogging in Vietnam, Mrs. Chi started running more than six years ago and was the first Vietnamese to complete a 100-km run in the UTMB system in Mont Blanc (Switzerland). Mrs. Linh Chi shared that 5 years before, she had been very susceptible to impatience. After taking running, she found her patience increase tremendously.
