As soon as women are, there are less cock fighting

Bettina born, man is in two respects an exception to this phenomenon: firstly, because it sits in the senior management of a listed Swiss company . In the majority of the biggest companies pure men's bodies to give this country to the sound. And secondly, because they do not do as the women in leadership positions often – the staff or the Marketing is responsible for. Born man for the past three years, chief financial officer of Zurich Switzerland.

And not only that: Since November of 2018, you are additionally responsible, ad interim, of the area of Operations, is, therefore, also for the information technology of the insurance provider responsible. How did you managed to make it to the top? And your leadership style from that of their male colleagues?

55-hour week

Bettina born man is located on the eleventh floor of the Swiss headquarters in Zurich-Oerlikon. In contrast to your 505 employee has a single office. Your appointment calendar is full. You try to limit the weekly workload to "50 to 55 hours," says the 50-Year-old and adds self-critically, the successful because of the current double burden of not always.

After your drive asking, it speaks of the desire to take responsibility and decide to be able, from the joy to lead the people. This differs little from the, what to give male bosses. Then born a man tells of how they gathered once a year, the top-level leadership to a Workshop to define the goals for the year. Later, these will be broken on the next levels of the hierarchy until everyone understands his contribution. "It is important to look first at the overall picture, the whole forest," explains the economist. "Then we look at the various tree groups and finally the individual trees."

The metaphors are not random. Born of man was as a Teenager, a passionate gardener, as a Manager, you have to put only a garden Plot in the city of Zurich. Four years ago, she bought a plot of land in Germany, the English-style garden of 2500 square meters, it maintains itself.

"just as plants cannot be treated can be, we need to consider very carefully, how many reorganizations, we expect of our people."

The work in the rubber boots earth, you, and you call her a reminder of the importance of humility and Serenity, says Bornmann. In the office you have often the feeling that everything could go faster. In the garden you will then aware of the fact that there is nothing to bring, against the rhythm of nature to contend with.

"Such plants cannot be moved, we need to consider very carefully, how many reorganizations, we expect of our people," says Bornmann. It is important not to change too many things in too short a time and to not send in the evening still tasks in the Mailbox.

"in the afternoon with Bettina"

Also in the business-born husband likes the Uncomplicated. Once per month one hour is reserved in the cafeteria for a "mid-afternoon snack with Bettina" – an open exchange without an agenda. Born man has the reputation that she asks stubbornly, if she has the impression that someone struggles with major problems.

That she was the "chaplain of the Department", as one employee noted, although they vigorously deny it, but the Care and Support was indeed important part of their work. In 20 years of leadership you have learned that the attempt of the emotions off, is counterproductive. There is a need for "head, belly and heart" for good cooperation.

not too much belly and heart is more of a Handicap on the career ladder? The question is, how hard she wanted to be, have you asked yourself several times, says Bornmann. Without the elbows, and thick skin it will not go at this stage. One of their core jobs was finally to make the organization more efficient.

Two women are sitting with ten men at the table

deal With money, she learned early. Her mother was a single parent to manage with 12 met Bettina born man your own annual budget.

born a man says she was ambitious and competitive, but you verbeisse in conflict, never an adversary, but rather to remain objective. As a former investment banker and a partner at KPMG, she knows the Situation well, being the only woman in men's bodies. "Once more women are in the process of relaxing the Situation, there is less cock-fighting," she observed.

that's Why it's so important that more women follow their example. However, in the management of Zurich's two women sitting just ten men at the table. Flexible working hours, home office offers, Job-Sharing models, and high part-time were able to acceptance of change so far, nothing on the depths of women.
