This article (http://www.forbes.com/sites/sashagalbraith/2011/09/27/top-women-leaders-higher-ambition-creates-equal-if-not-more-value-than-men/) gives an interesting and intriguing take on a recent Harvard Business Review issue. The article refers to higher ambition and leaders being able to turn companies around. Sasha, the author, feels the leaders, and the new leadership philosophy, is something that women have been doing forever and comes instinctually.
The theory, or new business philosophy, includes working with employees to give them more credit and acknowledgement, providing more meaningful work and goals to benefit the community and society as a whole. This gives companies and workplaces a better attitude and environment to work in, and employees enjoy their jobs and everyone gets more work done.
Sasha is pointing out that this is how many successful women entrepreneurs have been running their businesses all along.
To most of the people reading this it is probably no surprise, men and women think differently….that’s just how it works. it is expected that they are going to do things differently and have different tactics and strategies for dealing with situations and/or running a business. For the men that have opened their thinking a little bit and have found this strategy works for them, good for them! The fact that many women already exercise it, really just means we are ahead of the game.
