What qualities do women in leadership bring to the workplace?

Women in Leadership, like men, bring a diverse range of qualities to the workplace due to their unique personalities, skills, experiences, and backgrounds. However, there are some qualities and leadership styles more commonly observed in women, although it’s important to remember that these are generalisations and may not apply to every individual.

  1. Emotional Intelligence: Women often excel in emotional intelligence, which includes empathy, social skills, self-awareness, and self-regulation. These qualities help them understand and respond to their team’s needs, which can lead to a more effective and motivated workforce.
  2. Collaborative Approach: Women tend to have a more collaborative and inclusive leadership style. They often work to build consensus, include various perspectives, and create a team environment where everyone feels heard and valued. This approach can lead to more innovative solutions and high team morale.
  3. Resilience: Women in leadership roles often face unique challenges, including overcoming biases and balancing multiple roles in their personal and professional lives. This can foster resilience, adaptability, and the ability to navigate difficult situations.
  4. Communication Skills: Many women leaders are excellent communicators, able to articulate their thoughts and ideas clearly while also being active listeners. This can lead to better understanding, reduced conflicts, and increased transparency in the workplace.
  5. Inspiring and Motivating: Women leaders are often very good at motivating and inspiring their teams, creating an environment where employees feel encouraged and energised to do their best work.
  6. High Ethical Standards: Studies have shown that women leaders, on average, exhibit higher ethical standards. They often prioritise fairness, honesty, and integrity, creating a culture of trust within their organisations.
  7. Attention to Detail: Women often excel in multitasking and paying attention to details, skills that can be incredibly useful in planning and execution of tasks.

It’s essential to emphasise that these traits are not exclusive to women nor are all women leaders likely to exhibit all these traits. Both men and women have the capacity to be effective leaders, and the best leadership often involves a combination of diverse skills, experiences, and qualities. Ultimately, effective leadership is less about gender and more about individual strengths, values, and abilities.

Sarah Jones Leadership Coaching and Women in Leadership

As a former member of the women in leadership fraternity  I have personally overcome many challenges women face as they progress their careers on the path to becoming women in leadership. With over 25 years working in leadership positions within global organisations, I am ideally placed to coach and prepare women for leadership roles.

If you are a woman, who is an aspiring leader of the future, an experienced woman in leadership, or an organisation looking to prepare your female employees for roles in leadership, then please contact me and I will help you achieve your goals.

How have I helped female leaders before?  

Whether in their current, or new, or first leadership role, I’ve helped women to find their voice & influence at a senior level, build confidence & resilience, embrace assertiveness as an asset to their role, and build alliances, overcoming any organisational & structural barriers.

Using proven tools & techniques, we will understand & analyse your behaviours at work, and define areas that we can improve upon. I have access to data that outlines the key global leadership traits that count today if you want to be successful (for example these include listening, empathy, candour, compassion – a wider selection of leadership traits than in the past) & we will develop a plan to build key skills & techniques.

If you suffer from imposter syndrome, and about 70% of executives will do at some point in their career, I can help you – I’ve been through it myself when I was first leading – and I worked three times as hard to prove I wasn’t an imposter. But it does not have to be this way for you, I can guide you through this situation.  

Many women have often told me that they find balancing competing emotions around wanting a career & balancing that with family life & parenting, emotionally & practically challenging – don’t worry, I’ve got your back.

How can I help you?   

I have a range of Women in Leadership coaching programmes that are tailored to the needs of the individual, these will allow us to address together, very specific challenges.

The first part of this process is to discuss your unique set of circumstances to identify areas in which you excel and areas we can improve, though a confidential and free consultation process. At the end of this consultation process I will create a coaching programme, tailored to your specific needs.

Depending on your unique set of circumstances, your tailored coaching programme could be very short and be accomplished in a few coaching sessions. In other cases, more development may be required over a longer period.  

The first step in this process is by booking a free, no obligation call with me.
