How exactly do women leaders positively influence corporate performance? This was the obvious question raised by our 2007 study Women Matter, which established a correlation between how well a company performs and the proportion of women it has in its management team. We have found that one element of the answer lies in the way they exercise leadership. Indeed, some leadership behaviors, observed more frequently among women than among men, have a positive impact on a company’s organizational performance. In this way, women complement and enhance the range of leadership behaviors that is critical to corporate performance.
Some leadership behaviors, which are more frequently applied by women than by men in management teams, prove to enhance corporate performance and will be a key factor in meeting tomorrow’s business challenges. Hence, promoting gender diversity and leadership variety is of strategic importance for companies.
How exactly do women leaders contribute to improve corporate performance? And, is their specific contribution a critical success factor for a company’s future?
Moreover, a survey involving over a thousand managers from a wide range of companies reveals that these leadership behaviors – in short supply in today’s corporations – will be critical to meet the expected challenges companies will face over the coming years.
