Any minute now they’ll be a new book out, or a new piece of research explaining why men and women are different, why our brains are wired differently and why we like cats…or something!
And do you know what?
I also know that for far too long for a woman to be successful she has had to meld into man’s own image. And because we are different that’s not comfortable; very few women in really senior positions can get there by being true to themselves; the ‘system’ mitigates against it.
So the why doesn’t matter. It’s a fact and I accept it.
I don’t accept that means we’re not as good, not as suited to leadership.
We just have to redefine the parameters, the old rules, to make sure it works for 100% of us, not just the 50% that happens to be born male.
That will be good for all of us, men and women, girls and boys and I don’t need a piece of research to tell me that.
