Female Leadership: Advantages, Challenges, and Opportunities
Women excel at soft skills and emotional intelligence that may prove to be a key competitive advantage. Competencies included emotional self-awareness, conflict management, empathy, and teamwork—all essential for effective leadership in an organization.
Today’s business problems require leaders with diverse skill sets, perspectives, and experiences. Having more women at the top enables men and women to challenge each other and have better and more balanced boardroom conversations.
Companies also need to make it seamless and easy for women to hold their positions while taking care of their families. The bigger the pool of women, the more can make it to the top. That’s when it becomes a win-win for the women and the companies they’re a part of.
