LIMITATIONS TO CONSIDER WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Male Voices  I have worked with most wonderful women in my Survey Report 2013 life ..as either my managers, colleagues and peers. Many of them have been very inspiring and encouraging as well. However, this breed, was very less, …many of them abuse good women policies. until, a women treats a Man as a colleague and another employee, then looking as a gender, its difficult for some to take her as a lead.  I always felt that major inhibiting factors are Family social pressure, and lack of inspiration / self confidence to reach at top. I had lead more than 10 women employees…only two people had a vision for their future, what roles to handle and enthusiasm to work for it.  Even though we have lot of women enabling programs for career progression. I don't see any seriousness for considering them except if the person holds personal interest.

LIMITATIONS TO CONSIDER WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Male Voices  Survey Report 2013 I was unable to find strong desire and ambition in women to move ahead of career and take challenges Primarily it is ability to manage career and home effectively - there aren't enough enablers to manage this.  In aggressive situations the women leaders have excelled by having a balanced view, the dexterity in decision based on speed, risk taking and in high competitive landscapes women leaders have strangely been seen as devoid of any emotional considerations while the male leaders without displaying emotion have balanced emotional impact to the larger ecosystem.  It may be quoted that women as leaders would be weak etc. I think the converse is the reason. Women in leadership positions suddenly don a very different and sometimes scary proportions of ruthless unpredictable tactics which unsettles the predictable male thinking. Unpredictability in behavioral pattern as well as arrogance/rudeness which comes in with power.

LIMITATIONS TO CONSIDER WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Male Voices  Survey Report 2013 Most women have family as first preference which impacts working hours. Staying alone (away from family in a different country) for a longer period at any project site or on project work is extremely difficult.  There is a presumption that women are not ready to stretch themselves to raise up to demanding challenges.  There is a tendency to think that personal family commitments may come in the way of dedicated work hours and overtime if required. this is not my perception, but what I see in my experience at work.  Most men rely on male counterparts for completing jobs– they have been doing the work all the time…this is NA in the present ..with both genders in the workplaces. But, expectations of society and family on women who work are different from men who work.

LIMITATIONS TO CONSIDER WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Male Voices  Survey Report 2013 Once family pressures them to marry then don't know whether will continue or not….Woman's priority changes after marriage - much more than a man's. Her ability to multi-task, is huge, but family, home and husband take up the same. Where women flourish, is when given the right backing at home.  Other then very few, many women I met in my career want to fill the work hours. they do not have a vision. they only want to use the work as an "escapism tool" from family. ... they never want to go out of the box or stay longer to fix really important work related problems.  Most Women I have worked for/with are a lot more focused on the job at hand than men are and operational/implementing strategy efficiency is far higher. However the seriousness that a woman brings to the job at hand sometimes blocks creativity/strategizing, esp. if it an entirely new idea that has never been thought of earlier.

LIMITATIONS TO CONSIDER WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP Male Voices  Survey Report 2013 You might say I am a male chauvinist but in my opinion, females in the entire animal kingdom are home makers. They are the best in that. Don't take me wrong; that home could even be a company they work for. Having said that, in my opinion, women should be considered for roles that are critical in implementation and not decision making.  At home "Mom is the minister" but outside "Dad is the supreme power" and that's the recipe for a balanced and happy family. Work place is no different, at every level there are Dads, Moms and children. Can you imagine a home run by two Moms or two Dads? We need women at every level. But the deficiency is in understanding "supremacy" and that is where women drop the ball. They forget to be the "Mom" they are at home, which is stopping them from being who they could be  No reason's in my mind why women can't be treated equally and achieve the same level of professional status, although I do agree that not all work places/individuals see it this way.
