When it comes to leadership, does gender matter? Is there a difference between women leaders and men who lead? If so, what are the unique qualities of female leadership that the most effective women leaders possess, and are they unique to women?
One study reports that when it comes to leadership, women leaders are assertive and persuasive, have a strong need to get things done and are willing to take risks. Essentially, women leaders are more persuasive than their male counterparts. When feeling the sting of rejection, women leaders learn from adversity and carry on with an "I'll show you" attitude. And women leaders are more likely to ignore rules and take risks.
Women leaders demonstrate an inclusive, team-building leadership style of problem solving and decision making. The leadership of BPW-NC is made up of a team of women leaders from across the state of North Carolina.
