Women winning the Race
When it comes to professionalism, leadership and management, does gender matter? Is there any difference between the working style of men and women? If so, does it have effects on the end result? Though we have women at the top of the top industries and businesses in the world, the growth has not been able to wipe out gender prejudice. Professional women face problem of biasness due to some preconceived notion which are deeply set in the minds of the society Worldwide.
The partialness against women is so strong that even their working hard or being career-oriented is considered to be a problem. The reality is that they want women to be mute observers and supporters because they are not able to digest the fact that women can be smarter, sharper and perform better.
The insecurity has risen so much that people stoop as low as to blame good looking women of using appearances to move ahead.
However, the good news is that all this chauvinism has not deterred women for we have women like Chanda Kochhar, (CEO, ICICI bank), who had the courage to pave their way to the top through the thorns. These brave women not only made success their own, but also delivered it to numerous hopeful women who needed that ‘push’ to mark their place in the world.
According to a survey, Women leaders have proved to be far more assertive and persuasive, have a tougher call for getting things done and are more willing to take risks than male leaders. They are also found to be more considerate and flexible, as well as stronger in interpersonal skills than their male counterparts.
