In part one of this two part series, I shared four pieces of research, from an article published by that demonstrate the positive impact of women's leadership styles. In part two we share the rest of the research that proves women leaders are making a postive impact.
In the article “Why Women Leaders Need Self-Confidence” Leslie Pratch writes:
"I headed research at the University of Chicago investigating the longer-term personality predictors of leadership. Among the relationships examined were those among gender; coping and motivation, in the evaluation of leadership effectiveness.
Among the particularly striking findings of this research were the differences between men and women on measures of active coping. If you are interested in the conceptual and empirical approach underlying the research, an academic article reporting the findings can be found here. In a nutshell, we took measures of coping, motivation, and intelligence at the beginning of the study. At the end of the study, we assessed the ability of these measures to predict leadership effectiveness as evaluated by peers, superiors, and subordinates.
