Goman, Carol Kinsey
June 2010
Leadership Excellence Essentials;Jun2010, Vol. 27 Issue 6, p11
The author notes the efforts of organizations to develop the leadership abilities of women and create flexible work schedules, to attract women and groom them for top management positions. She says that only few women have made it to be in the senior-level leaders role because women's intellectual assertiveness elicits negative affect in a mixed-sex discussion in which they received fewer responses than male who provide the same input. To groom women for leadership, she stresses the importance of coaching, mentoring and career opportunities.
