I don’t find it odd that out of all of the qualities noted in the vast articles about top qualities in corporate leaders, emotional connectivity is a constant on these lists when specifically discussing female leaders.
Tony Schwartz, the author of the “What Women Know…” article also pointed out that he meets far more women with this blend of qualities than he does men, and especially so when it comes to emotional and social intelligence.
He specifically noted, “For the most part, however, women, more than men, bring to leadership a more complete range of the qualities modern leaders need, including self-awareness, emotional attunement, humility and authenticity.” But do these emotional qualities necessarily equate to a more successful career as a leader?
Does utilizing these emotional and authentic qualities equal success both as a leader and as a company, where the bottom line is generally the sole indicator of winning?
