An article in Business News Daily by Brittney Helmrich reports on a study conducted by talent management system Saba to find out what sets female leaders apart from male leaders. The research highlighted 17 traits important to women in power.

One of the findings, according to Emily He, former chief marketing officer at Saba, was: “In contrast to men, who tend to be career-centric and want to maximize their financial return from work, women view work more holistically, as a component of their overall life plan… Therefore, they’re more likely to approach their careers in a self-reflective way and value factors such as meaning, purpose, connection with co-workers and work-life integration.”

Some of the other 17 reasons cited include women value work-life balance, they check their egos, and the handle crises well.
