Women As Leaders Get an A+
Susan T Spencer is the host of Business Buzz, her weekly shows are “People You Want to Meet” (aired every Tuesday) and Keeping Score (aired every Thursday).
This FIRST episode of “Keeping Score” gives women an A+ and shatters the first of many myths about women as leaders. In a survey done in the UK, managers and non-managers were asked to compare the trust levels of male and female CEOs. Female CEOs scored a higher trust percentage than male CEOs! Employees rated women higher than men because women CEOs were able to put themselves in the shoes of their employees and revealed an understanding of what their employees encountered in their everyday lives. In other words women were able to show empathy. It’s the quality of empathy, (that comes naturally to women), that leads the way and gives us a foreshadowing of things to come.
“Keeping Score” has a long list of myths to shatter, so stay tuned each week, same time, same place, as Business Buzz takes an honest count from a real scorekeeper.
Founding and former executive director, Center for Women’s Business Research
As the former and founding executive director of the Center for Women’s Business Research, Dr. Sharon Hadary has been a leader in creating social change for women for over two decades.
At the Center for Women’s Business Research, the premier non-profit research institute devoted to studying women’s entrepreneurship, she harnessed the transformational impact of data and altered forever the landscape for women business owners in access to capital, markets, expertise, and networks.
Currently she is teaching leadership, including “Women as Leaders” at the University of Maryland University College and speaking nationally and conducting seminars on women’s leadership. She is working on her new book, The Top Ten Characteristics of Successful Women in Business.”
Dr. Hadary has built on the research she conducted at the Center for Women’s Business Research with thousands of women across the country. She combined this with the latest research on leading women in business conducted by universities and other researchers and added in her personal experiences with this nation’s top women entrepreneurs. The result is a compelling and comprehensive list that provides both inspiration and practical pathways for women to achieve their full potential as leaders in business, community and government.
Dr. Hadary brings the perspective of both the corporate and non-profit worlds to her work. She spent twenty years at IBM where she received a world-class education in leadership. Prior to IBM, she worked in a boutique management consulting firm and was one of the first women hired into AT&T’s management training program.
