That was the spell, that should be the spell for women at work, and in leadership. Pray!!
– Dr. Violet Arene
I recall my last Executive Training before my retirement was to be at the Senior Executive Program (SEP), Columbia. It was already included in the pre-planned calendar for the year. However, on a second look at, prior to implementation, the cost appeared exorbitant to me. I wanted to save money for the organization, so I went to my boss.
I explained to him it was the time to start the process for my participation in that program, but that the cost was exorbitant to me. I told him I sourced for a cheaper program, and would like him to give me money for that cheaper one in order to save money. He looked at me, incisively, said to me “Did we already approve that course?” I said “yes, but…”
He cut in, “It stays!” He took the memo from me, and signed his priceless signature of approval. And jubilant, I left his office, thanking my God for the grace to have such an empathic Boss. “Did we approve it? Then it stays” It was music to my ears, still is!
When the Accounting Department processed my allowance for that big important, it was big. No one they said could understand why my boss was so favorable to me – a woman. What they did not understand was that I prayed everyday for my Boss.

Women that work at hot lofty offices should pray! Pray for your Bosses, for yourself, and for the organization. I prayed for him, prayed for favor with God and with him. That was the spell, that should be the spell for women at work, and in leadership. Pray!!” – Dr. Violet Arene: Management Consultant, Women Enthusiast, and Leadership Coach.
