The Handbook provides a brief overview of the current state of women in global leadership, explores theories (both established and emerging) focused specifically on women, and examines with both theoretical and empirical research some of the factors that influence women’s motivations to lead. The authors delineate some of the most persistent barriers to women’s leadership success and conclude with the latest research findings on how to best develop women leaders to improve their status worldwide.
The Handbook of Research on Gender and Leadership will appeal to scholars and advanced students in leadership and entrepreneurship. It will be essential reading for leadership coaches, practitioners and business people, particularly those who facilitate leadership programs for women.
