If great leadership is the ability to influence, inspire and motivate others to achieve, what are the qualities that make this happen? According to John Neffinger and Matthew Kohut (2013), the answer lies in the delicate balance of warmth and strength, or likeability and the ability to get things done.

These qualities are seen in influential people like Oprah Winfrey and world leaders like Bill Clinton and Barack Obama who come across as warm and likable, with an unspoken quality that makes us aware of their strength.

There appears to be an uneven playing field when considering warmth and strength from a gender-specific perspective. Women displaying strength through overt anger and aggression are judged more harshly than men who do the same (Neffinger & Kohut 2013; Sandberg 2015).

According to Sandstrom (2015), 'Both men and women do, in fact, demand more time and warmth from women in the workplace. We expect greater niceness from women and can become angry when they don’t conform to that expectation.'
