Quotes From This Episode
- "The data used to derive most leadership theories and recommendations was collected by male researchers from male leaders, and it was analyzed and interpreted by mostly male scientists."
- "And even in terms of effectiveness, men and women are pretty similar. At least the most recent meta-analysis on the topic says, there's not a difference in effectiveness. And if there is a small difference in recent years, it actually favors women - that women are somewhat more effective than men."
- "Women's motivation for leadership doesn't tend to be one that's about having power over other people."
