Women in Business: “Enjoy The Journey"
Greatest professional accomplishment in 2018:
Fred Reimer joined the ZTA team this year. Fred is a successful, accomplished title professional and entrepreneur who worked with my father at the beginning of his career. We have the same work ethic and core values in conducting business. Fred brings his unique experience as a business owner, expertise in the title industry, and professional integrity to our growing team. I am very proud to attract such a consummate professional. It is with great joy and enthusiasm that I welcome him. Do you feel being a woman in today’s business world is an advantage, disadvantage or no advantage in today’s business world? Why or why not?
In the broad view of a macroenvironment it can be a disadvantage. However, we typically operate in a microenvironment and have opportunities to focus more energy on seeking synergy rather than fighting adversity. There is a plethora of synergistic business relationships available for women, and that is where I focus. I believe that professional relationships between men and women are predominantly impacted by the personal perspective of individual men and women on social mores, as succinctly illustrated by the following excerpt of the Harvard Business Review article authored by W. Brad Johnson and David G. Smith, (2017)
