In Asia, the Philippines has the highest proportion of female managers, reports ABS-CBNNews.com. In the world, we rank fourth. It’s not quite gender equality, but we’re definitely getting there. After all, it’s only a matter of time before people start realizing that women make awesome bosses. Do you have a female superior or are you one yourself? You may be able to relate to the list of reasons people should put a girl in charge below.
We're more adventurous.
According to a study, men are more likely to make decisions based on rules, regulations, and traditional methods. Women, on the other hand, aren’t afraid to try new things.
We’re more comfortable with using intuition.
Women have the uncanny ability to “combine intuitive and logical thinking more seamlessly,” reports Forbes. That’s because our left and right brains are more connected, making trusting our gut and being sensible at the same time an easier task.
Women can get right down to business.
Surprised? Apparently, men are more talkative than women. “Men love to hear themselves talk. I’m so generalizing. I know I am,” says Carol Smith, senior vice president and chief brand officer for the Elle Group. “But in a couple of places I’ve worked, I would often say, ‘Call me 15 minutes after the meeting starts and then I’ll come,’ because I will have missed all the football. I will have missed all the “what I did on the golf course.” I will miss the four jokes, and I can get into the meeting when it’s starting.”
Characteristics like taking initiative and driving for results used to be associated with men, but, surprise, surprise, survey data shows that women actually outscore men on both. In fact, women scored higher on every aspect save for one: the ability to develop a strategic perspective.
We usually know what to say.
Women are amazing communicators. We know when something is bothering somebody and when we should speak up or stay quiet, and we actually listen when people confide in us.
