Women are great leaders

Harvard Business Review recently revealed that women in leadership are as competent as their male peers and were more effective in 84% of frequently measured leadership skills. The data illustrated how ladies who lead excelled when it came to showing resilience and striving for self-development. In that, they aspire to develop others as they grow.

Why women become great leaders is because they go beyond their roles and use initiative. Women can wear many hats, can handle crisis well, making it look effortless even in dangerous situations. They are team players of note and are naturally good listeners.

Forbes list of the worlds top leaders rated for 15 years running as the worlds no. 1 Angela Dorothea Merkel, a German politician serving as the chancellor of Germany since 2005. She served as the Leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) from 2000 to 2018. Merkel has been widely described as the de facto Leader of the European Union, the most powerful woman in the world, and by some commentators as the “leader of the free world“.

In saying all of the above, women dream big, and they do have a very high level of emotional intelligence. They are outstanding leaders in all spheres of life since women can leave their egos at the door; it all adds up!

Women have qualities and are more open to feedback, enabling them to take on constructive criticism and use them as a means to make it better. They look at life from a non-judgmental point of view and make decisions that help to improve their business. Because of their high emotional intelligence, read and respond appropriately with the ability to remove the emotion. The success of the leader is measured by the performance of their team and their productivity. Good leaders care about monitoring their employees’ stress levels and take a genuine interest in their wellbeing – qualities that women naturally have. As a business coach,
