23 Aug Women Leaders for Sustainable Cities and Villages meeting Yannick Le Guern
“If women ran the world, there would be no wars.” It’s an old stereotype, but there’s something to be said for the effects of more women in leadership positions. In fact, according to a Morgan Stanley report, “more gender diversity, particularly in corporate settings, can translate to increased productivity, greater innovation, better products, better decision-making, and higher employee retention and satisfaction.”
Great leaders come in all forms, but most employees can agree that organization, decisiveness, and honesty are key factors in determining what makes a capable leader.
For female leaders in particular, there’s an even deeper layer of skill required to guide a workforce in an age when many women haven’t been given the opportunity to do so.
By embracing their unique leadership potential, women can blaze a path to the top of the corporate ladder, and those who have already made it have demonstrated how important female leadership can be to an organization.
Female leaders are proving themselves to be uniquely qualified for piloting their companies’ workforces and strategies. How female leadership will continue to evolve as more women rise the ranks and break down barriers is the next big question for companies seeking to gain an edge over the competition.
