With the development of the Internet, it has become possible to conduct business with people from different cultural backgrounds. This brings unique advantages to women in making decisions. When I had just joined the Tak Shun Technology Group, 15 years ago, I was assigned to take charge of restructuring projects. There was oversupply in the yacht industry, so the competition for me was fierce, especially when I found that many employees were men. They did not welcome me and I tried my best to win their trust rather than declare my leadership in making decisions. The first thing I did was listen to their views and encourage them to speak up. I showed that I was sincere, diligent, and also very powerful. Eventually, they understood me and gave me their support. Today, women have a fairer market environment but more competition too. So, if we want to succeed, we should demonstrate our soft power, our gentle feelings, and also be decisive and courageous. Also, I think women can achieve a balance between work and family through these unique strengths.
