The saying is true; ‘No man is an island’, no woman is either. In every successful business, teamwork is a must, but not just an aimless, imbalanced putting of heads together. To have productive teams, there are several factors that are critical.
Since even groups of smart people have been known to make both poor and excellent decisions, just how do you get the right mix?
As a female running a business, you have a secret weapon.
The difference between a team that churns out substandard outcomes lies in the intelligence of individuals on the team and the intelligence of the group as a whole.
These three factors affect team intelligence:
1. Equal communication and contribution to discussions
2. Ability to discern and bear in mind complex emotional states and
3. Being female! Yes, proven science confirms that females “mindread” better than their male counterparts and so teams with a greater female complement, outperform gender balanced ones. Female presence is the secret weapon! These hold true for face to face and remote interactions.
