The importance of lawyers
Business owners and managers faced countless business law situations and complex legal matters, which also includes financial losses, caused due to the unresolved legal issues in the partnership chain (suppliers, customers, creditors, debtors). The manager’s decisions could make or break business owner’s financial future and the stability of their business.
It should be mentioned that, the companies usually refer to us for legal consulting just when some problems have already occurred and they are at the stage of on-going disputes. In such cases despite our efforts, may not be possible to decide legal matter or settle out-of-court. The Lawyers active involvement in a company’s day-to-day activities is vital for the unhindered functioning of the company:
• The lawyer will provide the company staff within the course of their works, to understand and acknowledge existing legal regulations. The staff can be: director, human resource manager, accountant, marketing manager, etc. Employees who deal with the relevant legal issues in the process of working. Consequently, the prior consulting with the lawyer, considering the applicable law and following all requirements will prevent the company from failure.
• Company’s daily activities include: negotiation with partners, conduct business transactions, draw up, formation, performance, enforcement of contract and other legal documents. When highly qualified team deals with negotiation and drafting process, they analyse business risks, consider the specificity, interests and requirements of the company, and thus, the Company can avoid future misunderstandings.
• It is vitally important that the manager respond to legal issues timely and effectively. The phrase “time is money” is once again confirmed by the fact that the management’s delayed response to the legal matters causes the growth of the company’s expenses like cost of attorney’s service fees, court fees, other expenses related to the legal case, etc. Therefore, timely and effective response to the legal issues in the long run will save the company’s expenses.
• Case and litigation strategy clearly determines the success and outcome of the dispute, redressing such cases in the court of higher instance might be difficult. Thus, it is important that specialized and experienced lawyers create a winning case strategy and represent the company in the court from the beginning to handle the case and prevent further adverse consequences.

Head of MCI GROUP Legal Department
What makes a great leader? Knowledge, smarts and vision, to be sure. To that, Daniel Goleman, author of “Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence,” would add the ability to identify and monitor emotions — your own and others’ — and to manage relationships.
Qualities associated with such “emotional intelligence” distinguish the best leaders in the corporate world, according to Mr. Goleman, a former New York Times science reporter, a psychologist and co-director of a consortium at Rutgers University to foster research on the role emotional intelligence plays in excellence. He shares his short list of the competencies.
Realistic self-confidence: You understand your own strengths and limitations; you operate from competence and know when to rely on someone else on the team.
Emotional insight: You understand your feelings. Being aware of what makes you angry, for instance, can help you manage that anger.
Resilience: You stay calm under pressure and recover quickly from upsets. You don’t brood or panic. In a crisis, people look to the leader for reassurance; if the leader is calm, they can be, too.
Emotional balance: You keep any distressful feelings in check — instead of blowing up at people, you let them know what’s wrong and what the solution is.
Self-motivation: You keep moving toward distant goals despite setbacks.
Cognitive and emotional empathy: Because you understand other perspectives, you can put things in ways colleagues comprehend. And you welcome their questions, just to be sure.
Cognitive empathy, along with reading another person’s feelings accurately, makes for effective communication.
Good listening: You pay full attention to the other person and take time to understand what they are saying, without talking over them or hijacking the agenda.
- RELATIONSHIP SKILLS
Compelling communication: You put your points in persuasive, clear ways so that people are motivated as well as clear about expectations.
Team playing: People feel relaxed working with you. One sign: They laugh easily around you.
According to the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), Canada’s digital economy is growing steadily.
By 2021, ICTC forecasts that 216,000 new jobs will be created in this sector, for a total of 1,637,000 jobs.
Only 25% of ICT jobs are held by women. Many factors can explain this disparity, and TECHNOCompétences believes that one of them is the lack of networks, mentors and female role models in this sector.
To help buck this trend, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal is proud to welcome, on March 14, a leader who is deeply committed to the role of women, particularly in the IT sector, the former marketing director of Facebook: Randi Zuckerberg.
Passionate about tech and media, the Harvard graduate launched Zuckerberg Media in 2013.
With her company, Randi wants to further encourage women of all ages to take an interest in tech and entrepreneurship.
To do so, she creates varied content to reach a large female audience. Among other things, she is the producer of Dot., an animated series with a tech-savvy heroine as a role model for young girls, as well as Dot Complicated, a weekly radio show on the business world.
She is also the best-selling author of four books for girls and women, both to inspire and motivate them and to explain how technology and social media influence our lives.
In addition to developing content to encourage women to become entrepreneurs, she is also an angel investor. The businesswoman wants to play a significant role in identifying the next generation of successful women business leaders by financing their projects.
Recently, Randi was appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Social Media and the United Nations Foundation’s Global Entrepreneurs Council, and was named one of the 50 most influential people in digital media by The Hollywood Reporter.
Over the years, the Chamber has welcomed many prestigious speakers as part of its Bell International Leaders series, including President Barack Obama, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Prime Minister Manuel Valls, former President of General Electric Jack Welch, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
|Women-owned businesses continue to be the shining light in the current market. According to the Center for Women’s Business Research, female entrepreneurs generate $2.3 trillion to the American economy and employ more than 18 million people. |
There are many examples of women in business success stories but we did not have to dig deep to find the truly inspirational female business leaders. The following women in business have overcome great odds and serve as a beacon for all those to follow.
Each of these examples provides varying degrees of hardship and success. Some, like former Washington Post CEO, Kathrine Graham, had no idea of the ability in her until tragedy struck. Others, like Oprah Winfrey, have the spark of greatness within them. As William Shakespeare stated, “Be not afraid of greatness; some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
Katherine Graham, CEO Washington Post
Graham’s rise to publishing leadership was something “thrust upon” her. Following her husband’s death from suicide depression, Katherine had chosen to fill her husband’s shoes as the Post’s publisher. Katherine had no idea of the greatness ahead of her but as stated in her autobiography “Personal History”, “What I essentially did was to put one foot in front of the other, shut my eyes, and step off the edge”. That courage led her to become the first female CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Katherine’s success can be summed up by her words, “To love what you do and feel that it matters—how could anything be more fun?”
Ruth Handler, Founder of Mattel & Barbie Creator
California female entrepreneur, Ruth Handler transformed her belief of girls playing with paper dolls, to dolls with breasts being vital to the child’s self-esteem. That belief led to the icon everyone knows as Barbie. From a garage in 1945, Mattel grew to become a Fortune 500 company. Ruth’s understanding of self-image continued later in life when she developed the “Nearly Me” breast prosthesis following a mastectomy. Disliked by feminists, Handler’s ability to stick to her vision shows the trait required by all small business owners.
Mary Kay Ash, Founder Mary Kay Cosmetics
Probably one of the most significant impressions left upon women’s opportunities to succeed in business was from the positive and giving attitude of Mary Kay Ash. Mary Kay entered the world of selling for a company called Stanley Home Products. Throughout her career, she won numerous awards and upon retirement decided to take the entrepreneurial plunge and build her “dream business”. And what a business it was, Mary Kay Cosmetics has gone on to change the lives of millions. Success did not come easy to Mary Kay, her husband died one month before the company launch but her philosophy endured, “If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can’t, you’re right.”
These women represent a small sampling of many great women in business influentials. The one common thread among the stories of success is that success does not come easy. Success goes hand in hand with hardship and challenges. Never lose sight of your small business struggles, they are a requirement for great things.
