Meet Liz Agbor-Tabi Oton

Hey Boss,

As I wind the year down to a close, I am trying to be more thoughtful and intentional about who I let into my mental orbit.  I mean, it's been a brutal 9 months but in between all of the bad news has been several bright spots and I am focused on channeling my energy towards positivity these days! I'm increasingly selfish about who I let take my time and you should be too.

Let's be frank, 2020 has certainly been a difficult year and the notion that everything will miraculously change on December 31 is setting yourself up for serious disappointment.  It will take a while until we back to "normal" and only goodness knows what the new normal will look like.  While I wait for the COVID vaccine to receive approval in the US and make its way to essential workers, nursing home, and then the rest of us, life remains for the living and for this luxury I FEEL BLESSED.

So I thought that I would spread some style, beauty, corporate excellence, and blessings your way today and I invited Liz Agbor-Tabi Oton, also known as Mrs. O, to be a guest on an Instagram Live discussion with me.  Liz is pretty much everything that I believe encapsulates the spirit of being a Bossy woman and I was so happy that she agreed to the chat!

Here is a picture of Liz from our discussion earlier this morning and she is wearing our velvet lip liner BOYSENBERRY (sold out) and don't you agree that she looks gorgeous?  

Mrs. O embodies our mission statement which is to "Empower Women to Look, Feel, and Do GOOD" and she does that with such panache!  Liz is the Vice President of Policy at Global Citizen where she works to end extreme poverty in the world by 2030.  In addition to her impact-driven and purposeful work, she is a complete style connoisseur! Her wardrobe, art collection, glasses collection, home decoration, and cooking skills are the stuff to drool over.  She does everything with "elan" and I wanted to talk to her about how she brings all of herself to this world with excellence.

If you've ever wondered how women work at the various parts of what is core to them (marriage, motherhood, sisterhood, self-care, etc) with equal vigor and enthusiasm, this discussion is for YOU.

Not only is Iké a supportive Bossy customer, she is a mom to 4 children, wife to an amazing guy, and a total BADASS corporate lawyer at The Clorox Company.  Most of all, I LOVE Iké's spirit.  She's always so positive and effusive in her reflections.  I was grateful that she agreed to sit with me to talk about her life as a working mother AND a focused career professional.

Do Women Really Support Women?

December 23, 2020

It got me thinking about how loosely we use the term "women supporting women" and when it is necessary and when it's not.  I spent 20 years in the global finance industry, which is male-dominated, and so finding women to support my journey especially early on in my career was a rarity. There were times when I felt conflicted with when engaging with female colleagues that were not performing at the level expected of them.  What do you do then?  Will you be deemed a toxic female employee when you are truthful in your assessment of a female employee that hasn't pulled their weight?
