But is there any neuroscientific grounding behind these gender stereotypes? Featured: Gender Parity View all. How can we STEM the tide of women graduates leaving science? Shamika Sirimanne 20 Sep Elsie S. Kanza 20 Sep We can solve climate change — if we involve women Vaishali Sinha 16 Sep Does Hollywood have a gender pay gap problem? The Conversation 16 Sep She says the instinct is felt so deeply that most women will reject roles if they create a large imbalance between work and family life.
Slaughter admits she has entered the controversial world of gender stereotypes , but few would dispute her view that society should place a higher value on either men or women who make choices that put family ahead of work. There may be sound business reasons behind encouraging a different idea of what makes a good leader. Research suggests we tend to promote narcissists with an inflated sense of self-worth, according to psychologist Amy Brunell, from Ohio State University. But narcissism and over-confidence are inversely proportional to the qualities found in good leaders, according to Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, a psychology professor at University College London.
The best leaders create democratic, less hierarchical environments , in which everyone feels free to contribute, ChamorroPremuzic argues. Numerous academic studies suggest this type of emotional intelligence is more common among women than men. Meanwhile, the poorer people are, the more they have to comprehend the emotions of others.
Male chauvinists will continue to argue that women are ill-suited to being bosses if they are unprepared to devote every waking hour to the cause. A study at Stanford University by John Pencavel suggested long hours at work could actually be counter-productive. Pencavel found that employee output fell sharply after a hour working week, and it dropped off a cliff after a hour week.
When someone worked 70 hours, he or she produced nothing more with those extra 15 hours. Longer hours have also been connected to absenteeism through ill health. Similarly, the need to travel constantly plays havoc with childcare arrangements. The common source of these, and other similar problems, is that the culture of work is more office-centred than it needs to be in the light of technological changes. The long hours in busy times, Slaughter argues, could be done away from the office. Learn More - opens in a new window or tab Any international shipping is paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc.
