Feminine and masculine leadership qualities can be developed and used by both genders, men and women, but women find it challenging to hold a healthy and successful balance in their leadership style in our corporate world. Feminine leadership traits include a host of characteristics such as caring, nurturing, empathy, long-term commitment, verbal expression of emotions, curiosity & inquiry, loyalty & belonging, community thinking, growth mindset, adaptability, intuition, etc. The problem is that we are immersed in a culture filled with images of masculine leadership which disrupts the good balance between feminine and masculine traits of leadership in the workplace.
