    Female Leadership: Do women have special skills that make them succeed as today's leaders?2012Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years we have witnessed an increasing integration of women into positions where leadership is exercised. Although some studies show that less than 10% of leaders are women, they are making their headway in the difficult field of leadership which, some years ago, was totally dominated by men.

    Several authors have analyzed the female’s skills in developing leadership roles. Some of them have concluded that there are differences with respect to male leadership. But others are not so clear and talk about gender equality in exercising leadership roles.

    Moreover, a new style of leadership has been implemented in organizations, that is, transformational leadership. This style together with the latest developments in leadership has been analyzed from a gender perspective. Several experts in this issue have come to ensure the highest skill for women to develop this style of leadership, which is based on communication, empowerment and followership.

    How do stereotypes cloud our claims? How does literature affirm or deny the existence of gender differences in leadership? What do women writers specializing in leadership study over the past three years? What are the latest developments in leadership?

    This work features a series of studies on the subject made in the last twenty years. This along with opinions of today’s leaders, insufflate fresh air to the results and invite the reader to enter in the interesting but slippery field of leadership from a different perspective.
