Leading Like a Girl

Check out this must-read piece from Marie Wilson over at HuffPo, called "Leading Like a Girl: For Men Only?", which concludes:
I am on a crusade to have women risk revealing their authentic selves. As a group who bring important attributes to leadership, who can also be tough and in control, women's leadership, having been honed at the foot on the table, has lessons and positive possibilities for us all. We have made it safe for men to play like the girls. Now is the time to claim our own ability to do the same.

Along the way, Marie touches on men's and women's investing styles and the gendering of political leadership styles. One of the smartest slants on these topics I've read in a while. Thank you Marie. (And thank you to Catalyst's Laura Sabattini for the heads up!)

Thanks for Marie Wilson's article! (I'm curious what your readers think about Barack and Hillary in the debate last night. To me, she seemed to use feminine discourse!)

You linked to Ellen Goodman's article "Is Obama Leading Like a Woman?" which some may want to re-review now.
