Rita Caroselli

Director, Assogasliquidi

In my opinion, leadership means having the authority to state your own views, without domineering, but by reasoning in a serious and thorough way on all the choices you want to propose. It also means being humble enough to change direction if others can explain comprehensively the inaccuracy of your ideas, while at the same time always being consistent with yourself.

I do believe that women are naturally configured to be more humble, more empathetic, and due to this maybe we hold back more than we should – usually whilst we are trying to figure it all out. Networks such as WINLPG are so important in helping to give women the confidence to take bigger and bolder steps and make progress in the industry.
