Leading Women: Standing strong in the face of adversity
As part of our Leading Women series, we want to highlight the professional challenges and career aspirations of the women we work with here in Asia.
In this story, Jingle Pang, Deputy General Manager and Chief Information Officer of Ping An Technology, shares the greatest career risk she’s taken, what the ‘Adversity Quotient’ is and how it has helped her become a better, more confident leader.
Q: As a female leader, how do you set the tone of the team?
I start out with two key messages. First, I am together with you, and I am not your boss. I am your team member. It doesn’t matter if it is a failure or a success. We will share the credit and the dishonour. That way, we can build mutual trust and we can work together to overcome every problem and challenge that we face. Second, I let the team know that we are here to make a difference, and we need to have a collective vision to fight.
