In the wake of research from Harvard Business Review, who discovered that women make better leaders in times of crisis, OnDeck wanted to highlight leadership lessons from female founders and CEOs who are at the top of their game.

For each quote, OnDeck has deconstructed why their advice works (backed by research), and also distilled the learnings into a pro tip readers can apply straight away.


OnDeck created a shortlist of 15 highly successful female leaders and scoured through biographies, news clippings and interviews to identify their top quotes about leadership. Quotes in hand, the OnDeck team did their research to uncover WHY the advice works and then turn those quotes into a clear, actionable tip anyone can apply.
