Why Great Moms Make Great Leaders

at 6:27 pm | By

Moms can do it all.

When it comes to applying for jobs, moms never put their most experienced job on their resumes: MOM. No, seriously. Most moms fail to mention that they are mothers in interviews and in the workplace because of the stigma the title carries. There are a lot of people who think that because you’re a mother, you won’t be as dependable because you have so many other people depending on you. Or the misconception that you won’t live up to carrying the load of head honcho.

Moms have been denied jobs, they’ve been looked over for promotions and all sorts of other crap because they are simply providers for their kids. Well, if you didn’t know, moms would not only make great employees, but they’d also make great bosses. They carry a level of maturity and level-headedness to make tough and important decisions. For some, that’s just a regular day in the life of being a mommy.

Here are more reasons moms would make great leaders

It’s all about giving

To be a leader, you have to be a giving person. Moms are the ultimate givers. They are always putting the needs of others before their own and putting themselves last when it comes to their families. In a dog-eat-dog world filled with egotistical maniacs, it’s rare to find a person who gives with no personal motives.

Never under pressure

Moms have to balance life and work everyday. They have no days off. That’s the type of person you need to head a boardroom meeting and get things done, someone who can work under pressure with ease.
