Study: Women make better corporate leaders than men

Women make better corporate leaders than men because they are more likely to make fair decisions when competing interests are at stake, a new study has found. The study, published this week in the International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics, was based on a survey of 600 board directors. Women in leadership positions are more likely than men to consider competing interests and take a cooperative approach when making decisions, according to the study, conducted by researchers at A.T. Still University in Arizona and McMaster University in Canada.
