Strong people skills possessed by women leaders enable them to read situations accurately and take in information from all sides. This willingness to see all sides of a situation enhances their persuasive ability as they can zero in on someone’s objections or concerns, weigh them appropriately, address them effectively and incorporate them into the grander scheme of things when appropriate.
One of the greatest examples of a leader best-known for demonstrating these abilities is Hon. Lujaina Mohsin Darwish – an Omani politician, business mogul, and media personality. She is the Chairperson of MHD ITICS (Infrastructure, Technology, Industrial & Consumer Solutions) at Mohsin Haider Darwish LLC – one of the largest and pioneering business houses in the Sultanate of Oman which was established in 1987.
Hon. Lujaina Mohsin Darwish is involved in the strategic and operational aspects of the business and is responsible for the Omanisation strategy of the group.
As a woman who shares a strong profile, she is assertive, persuasive, empathic, willing to take risks, outgoing, flexible and has a need to get things done. These qualities combine to create a leadership style that is inclusive, open, consensus building, collaborative and collegial.
Her Excellency is able to bring others around to her point of view or alter her own point of view—depending upon the circumstances and information she uncovers. She can do this because she genuinely understands and cares about where others are coming from. This allows her to come at a subject from her audience’s perspective, so that the people she is leading feel more understood, supported and valued.
As one of the highest effective GGC women in business, Hon. Lujaina Mohsin Darwish maintains a clear vision of what she wishes to achieve—both in the short-term and over the long haul. Aspects of this vision may change depending upon circumstances, but the commitment to reaching her objectives remains unwavering.
This is frequently illustrated by her drive to balance her professional obligations with her life outside of work. Maintaining this precarious balance requires creativity and flexibility, additional traits demonstrated by effective leaders like her.
