Most people have an image in their minds about what a male leader looks like. But what about a female leader?
Great leaders possess similar leadership traits across the board. However, as there is currently a lack of powerful women leaders, it is difficult to know how female leadership qualities can be used to their best advantage.
Until we know more about the attributes of women leaders, we won’t know what we’re missing. In today’s rapidly-changing world, we can’t afford to deny leadership roles based on gender. Women have leadership skills that can help corporations navigate market upheavals and come out on top.
What does women’s leadership mean? This is a question all women need to ask themselves. It’s time for women to band together and support each other in attaining leadership roles.
Please watch this short video I recorded to fully understand where I am coming from. I’d love to hear your thoughts about it too!
When a woman knows how to be a good leader, she should support, teach, and encourage others to follow in her footsteps. Women make up 51% of the US population, but only 6.4% of Fortune 500 CEO roles.
Women’s leadership is a global issue. Feminism has brought women to the table, now we need to work for our fair share of representation among the leaders of the world.
The attributes of women leaders should be valued equally with those of men. In general, women’s style of leadership tends to be participatory and democratic, encouraging employees to find their own sense of direction. It promotes creativity, along with full participation and engagement.
Of course, all styles of leadership are useful. Where they are best applied depends on the context. Men and women have much to learn from each other. The attributes of women leaders can help businesses adapt to changes and move forward.
