The Tipping Point for Women Leaders
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 15, 2006
Woman MBA Magazine, the official publication of National Association of Woman MBAs, has published a cutting-edge article on woman leaders in its Fall 2006 issue. "The Tipping Point for Women Leaders," by Susan DeGenring of Interaction Associates, Inc., is a practical, research-based view of the current opportunities women leaders enjoy.
DeGenring addresses the questions, "Do women have a unique leadership style?" and, "If so, how does it impact their credibility in the workplace?" The article takes an in-depth look at a growing body of research that suggests that women, in general, have more direct access to qualities of emergent leadership characterized by qualities such as inclusion and collaboration. DeGenring calls this the "post-heroic" leadership style. In addition, the article provides several practical insights to help women move forward valuing their unique leadership qualities in the new global workplace.
