Jim Hopkins, the editor of USA Today's Small Business Connection blog, includes a mention and link to Be Excellent™ in his article "Trying to sell to female entrepreneurs? Better listen up!"
"For one thing, they recognize that female entrepreneurs really want to be listened to -- and that once heard, their wishes will be respected. Blogger Skip Reardon ranks "listen to learn" No. 1 on a list of seven essential skills to become a greater leader. In my interviews with women, they tell me that -- more than men -- their management style is to sound out employees, listening carefully for ways they can build consensus on major decisions."
Thanks for noticing, Jim!
