Women have been given natural leadership traits that make them great leaders and here are a few:
1. Strategic-Women have the to ability to stretch and go beyond the obvious details which allows them to broaden their perception for what is possible. The benefits are endless possibilities in a situation that could have only had one solution. They also can continue to ask "WHY" in order to receive the "BIG" picture. Big picture thinking is necessary in any situation.
2. Opportunity-Women will look for an opportunity within a situation and make it work for them. Driven by possibilities, women will assess a challenge and look at the bright side of the situation, and push pass the boundaries, and make it happen. One CEO successful business women we spoke with said "When I got pregnant, I found myself without a job because of my pregnancy. I turned that into an opportunity, and started my own hair care products that is now a multi-million dollar business."
3. Passionate- Women are naturally passionate about things they like and love. So as leaders they bring that passion to everything they do. Women have heard that they are more emotional than men, but this means they are focused, want things done right, and care about making things better. Women are likely to have a mindset that does not allow for much of the "Ego" to get in the way. So we will take passionate as a compliment.
