Abstract
Female leaders receive backlash for failing to conform to gender stereotypes (e.g., cooperative), yet are similarly punished for subscribing to characteristics typically considered ‘masculine’ (e.g., agentic; Rudman & Glick, 2001). However, traditionally ‘feminine’ behaviors could benefit leaders, especially in their ability to be transformative leaders (Eagly & Carli, 2003; Eagly et al., 2003). This presentation will describe gender differences in leadership behavior, and construct a profile for high potential female leaders in a male-dominated organization.
