leadershipWhen it comes to leadership, women are increasingly proving to be better than men. Certain specific abilities and managerial strengths are gifted to women, only getting better with practice. On social platforms, women are sadly faced with inequality stemming from society’s negative perception.

With the same diligence they show commitment at the workplace, women should also be compensated on equal terms as men. Even with these challenges, here are reasons why women easily trounce men in leadership;

Motivating Others

Generally, women are natural motivators who sense when it is necessary to offer support. They learn the triggers to an individual’s fears and motivations, seeking to find a middle ground. Ideas for motivation materialize effortlessly.

Men exhibit phobia when faced with emotional situations, taking a back seat rather than offering guidance. Studies consistently show that employees with women bosses are genuinely engaged in work obligations.

Equipped To Succeed Against All Odds

In a world where women have had to face a form of discrimination or another, dealing with challenges is a necessity. Women have had to stand up for themselves, achieving major leadership feats on the process.

Succeeding the odds is now being achieved with flying colors, revolutionizing the corporate space. Women are naturally driven to prove wrong those who seek to place barriers between them and their career and life aspirations.

Incredibly Patient

Unlike men, women in leadership won’t rush into decisions without clearly thinking them through. Before jumping into serious business conclusions, a lot has to go into reasoning and seeking the best solutions. This helps keep the atmosphere at work calm and conducive.

Stress is among the greatest contributors of resentment and unproductivity at work. Women are the best at calming down stressful situations, simply through gentleness and calmness. When not tamed, stress can ruin chances of promotion and salary increment.

Firm Business Ethics

While most women only subscribe to ideal business ethics in the workplace, women take a broader approach. Ladies would rather place ego aside and practice their ideal ethics in all aspects of their lives, rather than unsettle the working atmosphere.

As they pursue fairness, women fully recognize and respect the rights of their colleagues. The ethical behavior of initiating and spreading harmony is highly revered in corporate circles. Organizations are now more inclined to offering prestigious leadership positions to women.

Superior Managerial Skills

From their excellence in home management for ages, women portray characteristic of planning and saving naturally. They can thus manage well even when stocks run low, making them ideal for handling turbulent business environments. Their efficiency in managing resources is incomparable.

Maintaining a balance and careful allocation are achieved through intricate planning and thoughtful scheduling. Men are at times too casual, opting to ‘cross the bridge when they get there’. In contrast, women are proactive and openly considerate to subordinates and coworkers alike.

Excellent Communicators

Jokingly, women are said to be talkative; the corporate world proves that they talk sense amongst themselves. In extension, this virtue is integrated into organizations when they actively take up leadership roles. Every decision is thought out rationally before executions.

For women, snagging a business deal is achieved through tactful and precise communication. In the rough corporate world, these soft skills are sure winners in efficiency. Crisp flow of information in any organization leads to greater and lasting success.

As men prioritize actions over words, they at times end up making avoidable and costly mistakes. Customer and employee concerns are best handled by women, helping establish and maintain strong relations.

Good at Collaborating

It is women’s natural instincts to bridge gaps and bring people together. At the workplace, they comfortably handle multiple roles, interacting with many colleagues in the process. A happier organization is poised for success and triumph over competitors.

Being alpha-males, men in leadership positions seek to directly assert their authority without emphasizing on teamwork. Women prefer working in a team, seeking solutions together, and looking out for the best interest of all subordinates and staff.

Conclusion

Across the board, women are now taking up an increased percentage of leadership positions. In social and corporate settings, their empathy makes them invaluable as sources of encouragement and motivation. With clear visions, they have lead companies to greater profits and loyal client communities.

The world should move towards putting more women in charge of leadership positions. The positive effects will trickle down to all levels of society. Which women leaders motivate you? Let us know in the comment section. We are much obliged to further this conversation.

Korva Coleman of NPR writes “Two Women Tapped To Lead Major Companies” about the two major corporations who have selected women as incoming chief executive officers  She says “By New Year’s Day, the ranks of female corporate leaders will reach a new record: USA Today notes there will be 18 women leading a Fortune 500 firm. Previously, only 16 women held such positions at the same time.”

While this news is certainly heartening it underscores the need for more women to be given the opportunity to lead major corporations.  Much work remains to be done.
