The Other Side of SaaS – March 2021

The Other Side of SaaS

Well March has almost gone by and so here we are with the second edition of the Other Side of SaaS. March is Women’s History Month, so we decided to build this edition of our series around this theme.

Originally, Women’s History Month is a celebration of women’s contributions to history. From Dr. Rukminibhai to Susan B Anthony to Rosa Parks, the timeline of inspirational women stretches back to the beginning of time. 

While applauding them and their achievements is a given, we all know a woman or two around us who need to be celebrated in the present. 

So check out this post to see how some of the women and few men (we cannot leave them out) in the world of SaaS are celebrating Women’s History Month.

#10 Rikki Jump on How the Empathetic Nature of Women Makes Them Better Sellers

With so many “salesy” pitches out there, manipulation and fakery is quite rampant. However, when women are asked to replicate the same, they are reluctant to do so. Why? It is because women are wired differently.

With Empathy at its forefront, women are redefining how sales is being done. If you feel the same, then head over to the post and share your thoughts with Rikki Jump.

#9 John Barrows On A Superpower Women Have to Win More Deals

Have you ever felt that women are better at listening? Well, here is the data to prove it. According to Gong and the data they analyzed, women listen 16% more than men.

#6 lizandmollie On How We’re Taught to Measure Success

Growing up I think it was ingrained in me that success was based on my job title and the amount of money I make. However, having been in the working world for the last 8 years or so with a wide variety of job titles, I have come to realize that success is best measured by what I deem is important. 

My favorite illustrators on Twitter seem to have a similar idea. They have an uncanny knack for turning some of the thoughts I have into pictures. As they rightfully say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

What is your idea of success and how do you measure it?

#5 Elizabeth Perry on Changing Stereotypes and Gender Roles

Those of you who have read our first edition would know we presented a similar post. If you are asking why we are shining a spotlight on this again, it is because we feel that this has to be said many times before it reaches everyone out there. 

Besides, it is validation that this is an issue that most women in sales face. Hence, we decided to showcase this issue using a different voice. 

#4 Sarah Barton Thomas On How Saying Yes to Everyone Is Detrimental As a Leader

Since women work with empathy at the forefront, sometimes it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. You cannot please everyone when you are the leader. Leadership is a heavy crown to bear as you are bound to run into someone who is not happy with you.

So ladies, bear in mind while it is hard to turn away from someone who is not happy with you and your voice, it is only going to be beneficial to your efficacy as a leader.

#3 Kwame Christian Esq, M.A on Why Don’t Negotiation Books Authored by Women Get More Recognition?

Well what a fantastic question to ask! Why is it that negotiation books authored by women don’t get the recognition they deserve?

To change that here are some of the books by women authors who have contributed to the field of negotiation and conflict resolution. 

If you are worried about finding a skimpy list of books then fear not! With almost 120 books the list you are bound to find something you will like.

What are some of the negotiation books written by women authors have you read? Make sure to share your list with Kwame Christian!

#2 Jo Clark on Start Being Who You Want to Be Today!

I remember my 12th grade English teacher telling our class, “If you have a vision of yourself for the future, don’t wait for the future to arrive. Instead start by visualizing and putting it into action today. Only then will you become your vision tomorrow.”

Jo Clark says the same thing. If you want a dream job/dream title, start by equipping yourself with everything you need to achieve this. 

Assume the identity now. Be radical.

#1 Hiranmayi Arora On Thanking the Women In Your Life

While this post calls out to all the women in Hiranmayi Arora’s life and the impact they have had on her, I think it is a perfect representation of all the posts that were shared by women across all social media platforms thanking all the women in their own lives for being a force to be reckoned with.

Wrapping Up: A Shout out to All Women! 

To all the women out there, who lead by example, who lead quietly and who lead not for setting an example but for the situation that calls for it, it is an honor to just witness the greatness that you all bring to the table. 

As one of my favorite superheroes Elastigirl says “Leave the saving of the world to men?  I don’t think so!”
