About Believing in yourself and believe in others. The Pymalion effect as a way of female transformational leadership.:
Transformational leadership is a process that changes and transforms people. Female leadership is naturally a transformational one. Women leaders are capable of outstanding achievement. Transformational women’s leadership can have a place in institutions or programs to help them develop their skills. Female leaders inherit transformational leadership because women care about others and put their heart and effort into transforming others and arriving at a safe port.
The manuscript reviews the status of employment, entrepreneurship, and leadership for females in the USA and Latin America, the challenges, issues, achievements, and the needed path to overcome these challenges for having more women in leadership positions. One of the topics relevant to developing transformational female leadership is the importance of believing in oneself.
The Pygmalion Effect is reviewed concerning transformational leadership, understanding that there are two main types of Pygmalion effect. The first is the Pygmalion effect when you have expectations about someone and treat them according to those expectations. How you treat people causes them to act according to your expectations. The second type of self-fulfilling prophecy is where people change their behavior to match that prophecy. Both cases are explained and related to transformational leadership to help improve female leadership.
In the end, it is presented in practical terms, the testimony of 15 female Pygmalion and transformational leaders. Those leaders were selected because they have something in their stories that transcend their original environment and expectations and become extraordinary women and leaders. Still, more than that, they are essential to our book because they have transformed others through their leadership and are excellent Pygmalion examples to follow. Because despite many adversary situations, they kept dreaming and believing they could. And because, after all, despite their greatness, they are still helping others to think they also can, making these examples very special.
This book has written examples of people as real as us, common origins, a common ground where we can find inspiration and role models to look for us as in a mirror and imagine possibilities to deploy our internal leadership. The intention is to see these role models as aspirational and doable examples. That can help more women reading these lines to believe in themselves, aspire more, work harder, transform others, and in general do as many steps as possible described in this book and hopefully be enlisted in the second edition of this book or your books of leadership.
