Management of Female Power

“How do you manage?”

“Women are better Leaders”, “Women don’t even want to have a career”, “All women managers are bitches”, “Women need to stop fighting each other in the workspace and support each other more”, “Money spent on higher education for women is wasted, after some time they choose for their families anyway”.
There are many statements and opinions about women leaders and managers. Most of them are supported by research and statistics, and most of them are rather extreme. And contradictory.
Fact is that even today many of the world’s women are not able or capable to earn a livelihood for themselves and their families. And even where they do, they often have a hard time making a career. Female leadership is still a topic for discussion.
Still, research already more than once proved: “companies with female directors on the board have a higher average performance than companies with no female directors”.
