Love is in air the writer says, but to us, we see it as an opportunity to serve even better. Love is about service to others. As I mark another year on this planet, I count it a great privilege to have all of you in my life - thank you. We have teamed up with some of the best in various industries to share ideas and opportunities for our growing community. We have commenced a monthly columns on Technology, Leadership, Health and other relative subjects that could help our community to excel in this Year and beyond. I am excited to share with us the powerful articles of Mark D. Demers (Sr. Director of SAS) who has been educating us on matters around Technology, and we have Inderjit Singh who is an all round in Leadership matters. Amongst others who will be sharing ideas on other subjects - we are truly grateful for the contributions of these leaders. This year is a special one because Powerhouse Global Summit/Awards event will be taking place in London, this May - more details can be found at the back of this edition. Thank you for your support since 2018.

need people around you who are aware of who you are and what you stand for and they are willing to give you air time. That can be speaking at a conference, or writing an OpEd piece, or being interviewed on Television/Radio. I would suggest if anyone ever asks you to speak about causes you believe in, do it. Don’t let the ‘imposter syndrome’ stop you. It may be as simple as speaking to a group of middle school students, but being able to amplify a message to any audience is worthwhile. I started precisely that way. Schools, universities and conferences. Over time, I have been fortunate enough to build a reputation as a subject matter expert in female advocacy,

Some businesses had to lay off workers, but because we have a portfolio of companies we had invested in, we were able to deploy those laid off workers to another start up that needed staff.

PGMAG: What are the top three books that changed your life? LC: I was an avid reader as a kid and I am still in love with books. I actually don’t know that there were any specific books that changed my life, but rather it was because of books that the wider world opened up to me. But let me recommend three books if that is alright. 1. Palaces for the People by Eric Klinenberg. Fabulous insights as to how social infrastructure, such a public libraries, can help fight inequality and the decline of civic life. 2. Who You Know by Julia Freeland Fisher with Daniel Fisher. Basically discussing how important it is for students to expand their networks and relationships!

MAGALIE CHAPOTEAU (MC) PGMAG: Magalie, great to have you on today’s interview with Lady Anita. MC: It’s a pleasure for me to talk to you as well. PGMAG: Please briefly introduce yourself to our readers. MC: I am a mom. I enjoy time spent with my family. I love to travel, to meet people, and enjoy different cultures, and to immerse myself in new cuisine. It gives me a wonderful appreciation of the world around me. I believe you can break barriers with new found friends over a great meal. I am all about inclusivity. I’ve discovered through my interaction and conversations with the people I meet, that everyone at their core is about connection and discovering how similar we all are. I try to learn new languages to help me communicate as best as possible with others in my travels. I love to try new experiences, like zip-lining… oh my! I also enjoy a great advertisement which quickly gets to the core of a product. Whether through sentimentality, or humor, it’s a synopsis of how a company wants to convey their culture. My love of interacting with people has led me to work with some of the most wonderful, openhearted people!

20 FEBRUARY 2022 | ISSUE # 33

PGMAG: In your capacity as a leader, what are the ways of building an inclusive environment in the workplace? MC: Inclusion is so key to a company’s success. Therefore, it has to be part of every aspect of a company’s business. It is important the leaders in a company understand the benefits of inclusion. Which is why training is one of the best tools to getting everyone on that same page; educating the leaders about the sensitivity surrounding inclusion and teaching our leaders to embrace and celebrate all people’s differences. It’s not an easy task. It starts with the behavior of leadership at the pinnacle,


which affect the company’s culture. Leaders must listen to their employees. Give your direct reports a safe space to voice what matters to them. It is equally important for, we, as leaders to be mindful of the words/language we use. Companies have long held team building activities to create a symbiotic environment. Why not incorporate similar activities to break the walls of bias to create an inclusive environment. As a leader, I strongly believe in putting goals in place to ensure inclusivity throughout a company. Similar to financial performance goals, where we hold monthly meetings to make sure we are on track to exacting those goals, I would require that my department leaders do similarly with progress meetings on inclusion. PGMAG: What is your message for the youth? MC: Be fearless, be adventurous. Get out of your comfort zone and try new things. It is okay if you fail, you have a long runway to learn from your failures. Be open

PGMAG: As someone who a has the capacity to resolve ‘complex’ issues in the workplace. What are some of the ways to manage disputes amongst team members? MC: I have been so blessed to have had wonderful, talented people work on my teams during my career. To address disputes among team members, it is necessary to establish the understanding that we have a goal or task to complete as a ‘team’. Set the tone from the very beginning. It’s also making sure that everyone knows and feels their input is valuable, especially if it lends to the team’s successful completion of the task. Addressing the conflict immediately is necessary in order to move forward together as a team. Often times conflict or disputes start from misunderstanding of what is being conveyed.

Although I started out thinking that I would become a doctor, upon graduation from college, I landed a position in the financial industry with a Fortune 100 investment banking firm on Wall Street. When I needed to be more available for my son as he entered high school, I worked closer to home managing a law firm. Soon after, I transitioned to a Fortune 50 company in Telecommunications and moved up the ranks there. It’s very important to continue to push your own personal boundaries.

The unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic has forced leaders to confront its colossal impact on operations, workforces, profits and supply chains across the globe. All eyes are on leadership to guide their businesses through this crisis. Resilient leaders are generally seen as more effective, making them an asset to any business. A resilient leader maintains a relentless forward-facing outlook, keeping both the operational and strategic elements moving. Deeply caring and personally supporting the team is at the core of being a resilient leader. It helps build resilience in others. What is then resilience and how can it be applied to management skills?

The current pandemic is just one of the many adversities the humanity has experienced. Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we ought to get stronger and more resilient. Grounded in the scientific understanding of group functioning, the resilient leadership model helps leaders understand how the “emotional system” of their organization; the subconscious, instinctual aspects of human functioning often dictate, to a great extent, how the organization functions on the rational level.

All one needs is a true picture of reality and complete unshakeable confidence in our ability to take charge of it through our own effort. That’s where hope comes from, and that’s where resilience is born. I may add that resilience isn’t a single skill. It’s a variety of skills and coping mechanisms. To bounce back from bumps in the road as well as failures, one should focus on being positive – positivity being at the core of leadership.

MY STAND: Resilience is very different than being numb. Resilience means you experience, you feel, you fail, you fall, you get hurt; but you get up and keep going. Here, I count on my favorite expression “the harder we fall; the higher we bounce.” I often find solace in the wisdom of my idol Nelson Mandela “Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.” Thomas Edison had somewhat similar phrase to

The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” And so, has Confucius “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Oprah Winfrey puts it in a different format as “Turn your wounds into wisdom”. I invite you to reflect over my following words I often speak to myself. Feel free to modify my narrative and upgrade it, for me to follow too, as we leaders always crave for a better version of ourselves. My mind, body and spirit are strong. I embrace all life’s challenges. I face my fears rather than hide from them. I choose happiness each day. I believe in the power of hope. I live my life with trust and courage. I set goals I can’t possibly achieve and then I grow into the person who can. I make time to reflect, rest and

As more Baby Boomer executives, managers, and workers retire, there aren't enough recruits from Gen Y or Millennial employee pool – workers in their 20s to early 30s – stepping in to take their places. Adding to the urgency is that 75% of the workforce will be from the Millennial generation by 2025, according to many sources.

Powerful Global Women Foundation (Powerhouse Charity) was founded in 20l6 in Nigeria, West Africa, by Lady Anita Duckworth-Bradshaw. The core objective of this organization is to transform the lives of women and children, through various projects centred around the need of the service group. In 20l6 Lady Anita single handedly fed over 400 children as part of “project feed l000 children globally”, and held an empowerment conference for the women. Through this project, so many women have gone to do great things with the knowledge they gained from the event. She recently held a life transforming event for women in Lagos, Nigeria as part of International women’s month celebration 20l8. The turnout was very encouraging. She is working towards supporting more families to keep their children and wards in school through” project back-to-school” starting in September 20l8.
