Good News: Female Executives Are Worrying Too Much

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

Personality risk factors, such as worrying and retreating under stress, can undermine an otherwise strong female manager or executive. Fortunately, there are ways to curb this and help women enjoy their proven strengths.
(WOMENSENEWS)--While the glass ceiling is real and its consequences for women severe, its root cause has been elusive.

But these findings are actually good news. Now that we have measured and can clearly pinpoint what is holding women back, we can begin implementing developmental strategies and solutions that work.
Executives should learn what personality risk factors women in their organizations have and, if they are worriers, to be partners in helping them learn more productive ways to deal with conflict and stress.
