“The future is female” – A famous feminist phrase once used by feminists worldwide is now redundant. The future we imagined is here. While women continue to claim their fundamental rights, there have been countless examples of female leaders showing how to empower women.
The Societal Dilemma
In one study conducted by a well-known leadership consultancy, it was revealed that women’s leadership traits during a crisis were more effective than those of men. Women tend to perform better when it comes to desirable characteristics such as effective communication, collaboration, and motivation.
As a society, we need to learn the values that make women influential leaders instead of forcing them to be like men.
Unleashing the Potential
Suppose we can develop a bigger collective conscience about the female leadership style’s benefits to the table. In that case, we can pave the way for a better generation of people. It would create an egalitarian social order. Such interventions could mean a world with equality of opportunity, irrespective of gender.
Lessons to be Learned
Contemporary leaders need to be empathetic to be efficient and successful. It is an essential requirement of modern leadership. Humans are emotionally agile creatures, craving appreciation, and emotional support. An empathic approach to leadership satisfies both these aspects of human sensibility. It is one reason for the tremendous success that the feminist movement has seen in a historically small duration of time. Women supporting women was one reason that the moment gained pace in its initial years. Leaders with an empathic approach towards leadership, similar success can be reflected in any sphere of life.
