In this segment, Rimo Bose, PR Manager, TCL India shares her experiences as Entrepreneurs and breaking the gender stereotypes and how she continues to inspire many other women who are true leaders in the making.
My journey has been pretty inspiring given each hurdle, be it personally or professionally has made me the person I am today. My mother and father have been a great source of inspiration. Being part of the media industry has its own pros and cons but I have been guided by good leaders, sometimes in my earlier days there were incidents that questioned the fact how one survives this rat race, but then every challenge is an opportunity. Recently, after losing my mother I have realized that so much depends on a woman when it comes to family, and following her footsteps my aim is to strike a balance between my home and work. We need to understand we can only empower ourselves and push ourselves.
Inspiration & Inspiring the Team
I would like to give the credit of my success to my mother who has always inspired me. She was the one who encouraged me to pursue Public Relations and excel in the field even when the odds were against me. One thing that I have learnt from her is that no matter what situation you are in, you should not lose hope and stay self-motivated. As far as inspiring my team is considered, I always make it a point to communicate with my team, incorporate their suggestions while making or taking critical decisions. Apart from that, one major thing that I think all leaders should do is to be empathetic towards their team, because if you will try to understand the team, they will certainly put in their 100% which will in turn impact the performance of the company.
Empowerment of Women
Women empowerment for me is not only a term. I strongly believe that women empowerment should be executed strongly across industries. Women should be encouraged and empowered for a better future. As a part of the society we should ensure that the women around us feel safe at home and work and they should be given equal opportunities to grow and prosper. Also let’s practice giving equal respect to both men and women, we are first human beings, let us not forget that.
