As today is International Women’s Day, there’s no better time than now to look at the role of women in business and why their different leadership style can help improve the business world.
During the five years I spent as vice president, legal counsel, and acting general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles Football Team I had a unique opportunity to observe first-hand the vastly different ways that men and women lead. In this machismo world, I learned that women are sometimes better equipped to accomplish the same business goals as men.
One of the first changes I made as acting GM, in an effort to drastically cut costs, was to replace the existing jumbo jet—which transported the players, coaches, other Eagles personnel, press, and friends of friends to away games—with a smaller jet which could only accommodate team personnel.
