Why being emotionally capable is so important as a leader

I recently facilitated a Leadership Development Programme for business owners and was surprised to hear one of the delegates (a woman, herself) comment on how glad she was that most people in her team are men, as men are less emotional than women when it comes to business. A stereotypical comment, this is a view that women have been striving to overthrow for decades, in their efforts to be treated as equals in the workplace.

While the education space is typically made up of females, corporate education spans into industries that are usually male dominated. Mining, finance, engineering – all are verticals dominated by men. As a woman, I’ve discovered that the perception I have of myself directs how I am treated. People, generally, respond to confidence.
