Feminine Values essential for today’s leaders!

As economies restructure from capital-based to knowledge-based people point to widespread dissatisfaction with typically ‘masculine’ ways of doing business and a growing appreciation for the traits and competencies that are perceived atheathenadoctrine-1s more feminine.
The results published in a new book called the Athena Doctrine reveal that among the millennial generation (19-30 year olds) 80%are dissatisfied with highly masculine approaches to leadership.
The researchers John Gerzema and Michael D’Antonio asked 32,000 people around the world to classify 125 different human characteristics as either masculine, feminine or neither, while the other half rated the same words (without gendering) on their importance to leadership, success, morality and happiness.  What they found was a high correlation between what people felt was “feminine” and what they also deemed essential to leading in a new economy – an increasingly social, interdependent and transparent world.
