Twice as many female professionals excel in organisational development and coaching talent as compared to men professionals, reveals a recent report.
According to SCIKEY research, this is mainly attributed to women’s capability to nurture and connect emotionally with their colleagues and peers.
Additionally, female bosses are not only more likely than male managers to encourage their subordinates' development, but they're also more inclined than their male counterparts to check in frequently on their employees' progress. Since women bosses tend to train their juniors better, employees who work for female bosses outscore those who work for male bosses.
The report also found that women can be equally or more effective as men in negotiations when bargaining opposite one another. It was observed a whooping of 1.37% women are good negotiators as compared to 1.11% men. The behavioral trait depicts that women are better negotiators than men because they use their wider social knowledge to negotiate along with the hard data to back the negotiation that men are usually not exposed to (social experience).
In other findings, the study claimed female professionals (6.67%) have high conflict management ability as compared to male professionals (4.96%). This is attributed to women’s ability to understand the reason for conflict due to social experience & exposure both at the workplace and family, they connect better with others and find creative outcomes simultaneously. Meanwhile, 6.15 % of both women and men are instruction takers and may not be good as managers.
The study also indicates that both men and women seem to have low emotional resilience. About 16.8% women in the workforce are emotionally unstable as compared to 14.7% men.
These are the findings of the research analysis on 'Women in the Workplace in India’ conducted by SCIKEY. It is based on insights from 5,388 respondents with an equal proportion of female to male ratio in India with an experience level from 0 to over 20 years of experience. These mainly include IT professionals between the age group of 22 to 47 from states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Haryana and West Bengal.
