Professional women are going to dominate the workplace and the corporate world in just a few years. Six out of ten college graduates are women, so six out of ten new hires in corporate America are women. That means that six out of ten executives and six out of ten professionals in corporations will be women in the near future.
Women who want to succeed in this new environment will need to learn how to network with other professional women. That is why organizations such as the National Association of Professional Women are so important. Such groups provide professional women a framework for networking and communication.
Traditional male oriented business organizations do not. In fact, male oriented organizations often deliberately and systematically exclude women. Women who want to succeed will need to network to find the opportunities and develop the relationships necessary for success.
Men have succeeded in corporate America by building relationships and networks of relationships. Women are even better at creating relationships and networking so they should have a tremendous advantage entering the corporate arena.
The basis of success in business has always been networking. Those who are best at networking find the opportunities and create the networks. This is even more critical today because in today’s world, networking is business. As business becomes more networked and less hierarchical, women will have the advantage.
The old model of business was the hierarchal corporation of top down command. Today’s model of business is a network of people working together. It is based on communications technologies like the internet which give women the advantage. Those who are the most effective at communication will dominate the corporation of the future.
In this new corporate world, women have the advantage. They will be the dominant force and the future. Not only do women have the numbers they have the communications and networking skills to dominate the corporations of the future.
