Lipstick Leadership: Maintaining Perspective - Rita Allen's Story!

"Motherhood has taught me to keep things in perspective. When my children were younger and I'd be in the middle of a work crisis, the moment I got home and held one of my children and saw the look in their eyes as they talked to me, the big crisis just became a situation that had to be dealt with rather than an all-consuming problem taking over every single ounce of my energy and thought. My children keep me grounded and balanced. That is a necessary skill in my work - as well as a necessary attitude to possess - always keep things in perspective. Being able to step back from a situation, accurately assess it, weighing out pros and cons, obstacles, challenges and options prior to coming to a conclusion is critical. Having said that, I still struggle with not reacting to the moment but being a mother has taught me to be more patient, open-minded, flexible and wise!!"

- Rita Allen, Rita B. Allen Associates
