Leadership & Management: Welcome to Health Industry Hub’s Women in Leadership Series – connecting, engaging and empowering women in the MedTech, Pharma and Biotech sectors by celebrating and sharing the journey of inspirational and passionate women leaders in the industry.

In an interview with Health Industry Hub, Jane Crowe, Managing Director, Cardinal Health Australia & New Zealand, reflects on how gender equality and women in senior leadership roles have evolved and the differences she observed during her time leading for-profit and non-for-profit organisations.

Jane also shared her advice on becoming influential, while remaining authentic and true to your values. She considered the future of the workforce and how leaders need to evolve to set themselves and their teams up for success.

Jane said “I have worked throughout my career for a number of outstanding female leaders, and I feel like they paved the way for me, and I hope I’m paying it forward for them by paving the way for future female leaders.

“I’ve never felt like the token female at the table. I’ve never felt like I was making up the numbers. I have been in the position through the course of my career where the diversity has been there but the inclusion has not. I’ve learned over time that my voice is valued and I’m there at the table for a reason, and to use my voice. I’ve built that confidence over the years.”

In considering influential leadership, Jane added “He [Simon Sinek] talks about leaders influencing in two ways. They can influence through manipulation or through inspiring others. I’ve lived a life and a career where I’ve worked for both kinds of leaders. I’ve observed them and I’ve learned a lot from that. Those that led through manipulation and fear didn’t motivate me.

“Over the course of my career, I’ve learned that the majority of people are motivated through influence. I work with a number of incredibly smart individuals at Cardinal Health. They love what they do, and they work well together as a team. My job is to create an environment where they grow, flourish, and they feel confident and safe to do what they believe is necessary to get the job done.

“I hope in moving forward, that will be the change that’s necessary in all leadership roles as we see that the returns from that [inspirational] style of leadership far outweigh the old school hierarchical leadership.”
