Women Leading Globally

In honor of International Women’s Day, S. Bronfman Chair in Management at McGill University Nancy Adler, is offering  free of charge a download of her article, “Women Leading Globally: What We Know, Thought We Knew, and Need to Know about Leadership in the 21st Century”, but only for the month of March.

The article recognizes that:

“Whereas most societal commentators continue to review the historical patterns of men’s leadership in search of models for 21st-century success, few have begun to recognize, let alone appreciate, the equivalent patterns of women’s leadership and the future contributions that women could potentially make as leaders. What could and are women bringing to society as global leaders? Why at this moment in history is there such a marked increase in the number of women leaders? Are we entering an era in which both male and female leaders will shape history, both symbolically and in reality? And if so, will we discover that women, on average, lead in different ways than men, or will we learn that role (global leader) explains more than gender? This chapter reveals the accelerating trends of women joining men in senior leadership positions, establishes the relationship of women leaders to our overall understanding of global leadership, and sets forth an agenda to accomplish much needed research and understanding.”

Enjoy and happy March.  Access the article here.

Why Leadership Is The Next Global Frontier


You have a business but do you have and are you communicating a vision about taking it global?  According to Herminia Ibarra, professor of organizational behavior at INSEAD who conducted a recent groundbreaking study of executive leadership and gender:

Vision is generally believed to be the most critical leadership component and perhaps the main factor separating manager from leader. No matter what other qualities an executive candidate possesses, a perceived lack of vision may prevent advancement to that top role.

Study results–based on the responses of nearly 3,000 male and female executives plus 22,000 of their supervisors, peers and subordinates–ranked women highest in almost every category of leadership except the most crucial one: having and communicating a vision.

Stop what you are doing right now.

Establish a global vision, write it down on a rock, and start talking it up with your employees, independent contractors, vendors, colleagues, friends and family!  Because leadership — the ability to have and communicate a vision — is the next global frontier for women business owners worldwide.
