Can Mary Barra lead General Motors?
She will take over as CEO of General Motors this month. It’s actually the first time ever that a woman will lead a global automaker. What kind of woman does it take to lead such a male business? Listen to her views on leadership:
The video speaks for itself and shows that she understands not only leadership but the business of making cars. But will that be enough to stop her from having the problems most female leaders in large companies come across? Having to be twice as competent as a man and coping with men trying to get rid of them happens frequently to powerful women.
Do you believe Mary Barra has what it takes to lead General Motors? Is what she outlines in the video the kind of leadership it takes to lead the automaker? Will male colleagues in the male dominated sector respect her? Do you believe we will see more women leading automobile companies? Or is it an insurmountable task for a woman to lead a car giant?
