Lady-er-ship amid COVID-19
Why are Women managers and leaders told to be more like Men?
Taiwan, Iceland, New Zealand, Germany, Finland, Norway and Denmark have 2 things in common at the moment: a woman that is Head of State and an outstanding response to the COVID crisis.
This article details their responses to the crisis and the outstanding leadership these Women displayed during the crisis. The response from leaders has been empathetic yet tough when required, to beat the crisis.
For me, its not about feminism or decrying the responses of male Heads of State; its just about playing to your strengths.
Women have often been instructed to behave more like their male counterparts to be effective leaders. However, I feel that by being authentic and playing to their strength, these women leaders have come out ahead and been trailblazers.
For all of Women leaders and Managers, it’s a Powerful lesson to take inspiration from and to implement in our lives!!!!!!
