In a country where 50,5% of the population is female (stats: http://countrymeters.info/en/South_Africa) , we pride ourselves in saying that 85% of our clientele are female owned businesses. For this Women’s Month, we felt it fit to remind ourselves about why we love female entrepreneurs.
1. “Pitbull in heels” -Farah C. Fortune
Women tend to have to work twice as hard to prove themselves, especially in male dominated industries. You can almost be sure that they’ll rise through any challenge, without compromising good quality work, which usually motivates them to work harder.
2. Did you say “Multitasking”?
Scientists have proven that women are better multi-taskers than men. We can always trust women with focusing on various departments of the job without disorganising anything. Regardless of how much in demand their services are, women will take their time in making sure that they do not deliver mediocre results.
Because of their ability to show empathy, women tend to have greater relationships with both their employees and clients. This is the reason why female entrepreneurs make longer lasting and better connections. Their understanding of the importance of family could contribute as a reason why women business owners relate with associates on a more personal level.
4. Less narcissistic
Self-indulgence and entitlement are the worst traits any business owner can have. Traits that researchers have found that men have more of. Creating high-performance teams requires a level headed leader, which will in turn award high-level trust.
5. Development of employees
Women have nurturing skills, thus making them better leaders. In most companies led by women, you’re more likely to find that most of their employees are hands on and constantly up-skilled. Employees are the true assets of any organisation and the more appreciation they are shown, the more hard work they put in. Besides, who wouldn’t want to work for and with a boss that encourages and motivates them right?
