The Feminine Approach is Taking Leadership to New Heights

Updated: Oct 18, 2019

The past few years have seen exciting changes in approaches to leadership, which are paving the way towards a more diverse future.

Traditional, “masculine” leadership traits are being supplanted by qualities which are stereotypically considered to be “feminine”, causing not only a shift in the business landscape, but furthering the cause for equality in general.

For many years, leadership has been a predominantly male arena and as a result, typically “masculine” qualities such as decisiveness, resilience and confidence, have been viewed as paramount. These qualities are certainly valuable traits for a leader to possess; however, a softer style is emerging utilising a different skill set, which is elevating leadership to new heights – and this can only mean great news for women.
