Women take a different approach to leadership than men and focus more on balancing professional and personal responsibilities as well as caring about colleagues overall well-being instead of just their performance at work. Women in leadership tend to take a more holistic approach to management and are more prepared to share their knowledge and connect with colleagues to help achieve team and business goals. Other qualities they bring to leadership roles include:
• Being Empathetic – women tend to empathize better than men and value relationships more which gives them a better understanding of what motivates people.
• Focus on Teamwork – women tend to be less authoritarian and more cooperative and emphasize team effort rather than leadership from the top.
• Strong Communicators – communication tends to be one of womens’ strongest skills and open communication enables co-workers to clarify roles and responsibilities when issues arise.
