Mothers are topmanagers, but ...

It is obvious from the title of this blog I believe in the management capacities of mothers. A lot is to be learned from the way mothers handle children, organize their home or structure their day.

In Europe a reverse political correct climate towards women is surfacing. Political parties are obliged to fill their ranks with a fixed percentage of women (Belgium, Germany, ...). Local governments force themselves to include a fixed percentage of women (Austria, ...).

In Germany on the highway from Koln to Brussels at a usually very busy 'Rasthof' (gasoline station with restaurant alongside the highway) the following sign was erected, see picture.

The signs says:
"Parkingspot for Women.
Please keep 3 spots open."
