Becoming A Woman Who Leads

In this opinion article, Dr. Gail Hayes describes 6 powerful leadership styles for women. She notes, “It was interesting to see that once a woman embraced her leadership style, she became more focused and appeared to be more content with not only her life but also herself — whether she was standing at a diaper changing table, on an assembly line, or sitting in a corporate boardroom.”

Her 6 leadership styles are:

  • The Activist Leader – motivated by helping others
  • The Strategic Leader – motived by plans and long-term achievable goals
  • The Tactical Leader – leverages her people management skills to get the job done
  • The Creative Leader – empowers others think creatively and to be involved
  • The Collaborative Leader – achieves her goals by leveraging and engaging networks and relationships
  • The Dramatic Leader – Go big or go home
