Rescooping ... thanks for sharing!

 

I find it interesting how we as a society split hairs with regards to masculine versus feminine leadership traits or values ... sometimes with the undertone that "masculine" traits make for stronger leaders while "feminine" traits make for weaker leaders. Then folks take this bias a step further to connotate negativity towards crossing these traditional gender-based biases (e.g. men who demonstrate traditionally "feminine" character traits are percieved as weak, while women who demonstrate traditionally "masculine" character traits are perceived as jerks as opposed to being perceived as strong leaders like their male counterparts).

 

Can we all just agree that strong, effective leadership is just that (regardless of gender), and that our own biases about what is masculine versus feminine quite frankly is irrelavent?

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 24, 2013 11:41 AM

Thanks for the great curation Maria Rachelle.  Starting with my mother, some of the most influential leadership mentors I have had are women.   This research makes a lot of sense to me!

 

Especially the following section:

 

Empathy Is Innovation. While leaders spend considerable time and effort trying to envision markets and pushing out innovation, empathy can often generate simple, yet breakthrough ideas. In her years working as an advocate for charities in Britain and abroad, Anna Pearson noticed a pattern: there were many people who wanted to volunteer — but were too busy (or had schedules too varied) to commit to a cause.

 

To bridge the gap between what volunteers could give and what people need, Anna re-imagined volunteering on a very small scale. Her London-based non-profit Spots of Time connects organizations with people who can give an hour or so at a time, and often at a moment’s notice. The lesson? Anna trained her empathy not just on beneficiaries of charity but also on volunteers. That kindness and sensitivity to others was the catalyst for creativity.
