INTRODUCTION More and more women are getting higher to the leadership dare, even in some ofthe mainly male-dominated industries and organizations. It is noticed highpercentage of women attending in the workplace of starting their own business hasproved to men who own business that women can do both, be LEADERS, wives, andmothers, therefore showing their male counterpart that women can actually do itall. In this PowerPoint slide show women in the leadership will be outlined, aswell as the challenges they face. How women lead along with comparison to howmen lead, and a conclusion of women in leadership.
WHAT IS LEADERSHIP A RELATIONSHIP THROUGH WHICH ONE PERSON INFLUENCES THE BEHAVIOR OR ACTIONS OF OTHER PEOPLE. A LEADER IS ONE WHO KNOWS THE WAY, GOES THE WAY, AND SHOWS THE WAY.THE VERY ESSENCE OF A LEADER IS THAT YOU HAVE TO HAVE VISION. AN INDIVIDUAL WHO IS A SKILLFUL COMMUNIC ATOR, A MOTIVATOR, ONE WHO TRANSLATES VISIONS INTO REALITY, ONE WHO PROVIDES DIRECTION IN TIME OF C HANGE AND SOMEONE WHO IS WELL INFORMED.
WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Women leaders are more assertive and persuasive, have a stronger need to get things done and more willing to take risks than male leaders. Women leaders were found to be more empathic and flexible, as well as stronger in interpersonal skills than their male counterparts. Strong leadership starts with being able to pull together a group of people who may not have everything in common and getting them to buy into a vision of themselves as a collective group who can achieve uncommon results Women leaders are able to bring others around to their point of view or alter their own point of view depending upon the circumstances and information they uncover.
WHY SOCIETY REJECTS WOMEN AS LEADERS Women are being rejected because of their own gender. Women are too familiar of a man playing leader role. Male believe that a w oman role is to take care home, children, and the bedroom. We live in a masculine world and women leadership has become a significant topic. Male and females feel that w omen are to emotional or indecisive. This has being going on for hundreds of years. Today people are stuck in the old ways of living and refuse to change. People today takes bible scriptures and interpreted it as the male rule and the w oman needs to be quiet and be submissive.
EFFECTING CHANGE IN WOMEN LEADERSHIP Women work in many different fields such as; clerical, professions, own their own business, joined military, professional sports, and service industries. Women work full and part time jobs. Women are wives and mothers, struggling to meet the demands of both their careers and families. Women have become highly successful as providers for their families.
EDUCATION IS ONE OF THE KEY Women began going to business school and earning their Master’s of Business Administration degrees and, as a result, building on their education and gaining work experience. Females need to be armed with college degrees to be a contributor to this century’s model of the family unit and in this time of “education inflation” , the demand of higher education is growing at a staggering rate. Its hard for a w oman to be elevated to the top but with background history of education will make it a little easier.
CONCLUSION In my conclusion, you have learned the definitions of leadership,rejections of w omen as a leader, and the challenges w omen has to face. Iwant to encourage the women of today that whatever you want to do andbecome, do it and do it w ell. W omen need to stay focus and not give up ontheir dreams. Som etimes it takes for you yourself to motivate and patyourself on your own back. W omen face a lot of challenges today. It’shard for us to get the old ways out of our minds. We are stuck in thepast. W omen already were a good leader w hen they became a mother and awife to nurture their families. So we already were born with character-istic of a leader. Our children and husbands looks up to us. Being a goodleader, you will also have to be a good follower as well.
