Shira Goodman’s first job was as a waitress in a local delicatessen. She thinks the most important quality a woman leader needs is courage. And the best career advice she’d give her former self is “ listen better.”

As president of Staples North American Commercial division, Goodman has been recognized by Diversity Journal as one of the “2015 Women Worth Watching.”  Goodman is among a select list of 100 women cited for their initiative and achievements, who work to further diversity within their spheres of influence.

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos fought back against critics saying the piece doesn’t reflect the company he knows or the employees he works with daily.

You be the judge: Does reading this article impact your decision about buying from Amazon as a consumer?
