If you want to be a leader, you need to act like a leader and make sound, responsible decisions.

Here are five things women should do if they are looking to advance in their position.

This advice will help women overcome invisible barriers that exist within the corporate world and political structure:

1. Don't wait for perfection

Many women associate leadership with perfection.

Leadership is not perfection but values and tenacity.

You don't have to be perfect, you just have to have the drive and determination to succeed.

2. Be assertive

Women can be very pragmatic, considering the risks, but not rewards.

3. Manage your talent

Think of new ways to expand your skill set, knowledge and experiences,  the more well-rounded you are the better.

4. Build allies

The more people who support you and want to see you succeed, the greater your chance of being recognized for your hard work.

5. Make good decisions
