Effective leadership is not the exclusive domain of men or women!
When we talk about ‘leaders’, we often think of men first: Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Napoleon, Roosevelt, Churchill, the Dalai Lama, Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, etc.
However, there have been and there ARE also many women leaders: Oprah Winfrey, Angela Merkel, Amelia Earheart, Coco Chanel, Christine Lagarde, Serena Williams, Marie Curie, etc.
What is interesting is this.
All of these people share some common traits:
- They had/have a vision/goal in mind
- All of them were/are focused
- They inspire(d)
- Theae leaders stay(ed) positive
- They took/take risks
- Each and everyone of them made/make mistakes
- They believe(d) in themselves
I said it earlier: Effective leadership is not the exclusive domain of men or women.
Women usually have a different leadership style than men. Each gender has its own strengths and areas of improvement.
However, both genders can learn from each other.
In the next few weeks, I’ll share some tips about leadership with specific tips for all the women out there.
