Women Make Better CEOs. Period.

Do you watch ABC’s entrepreneur TV show Shark Tank? Well get this:

Judge/Investor Kevin O’Leary has a clear stance on women as CEOs: they are the best choice. Because women leaders make back more money.

“Attributes that I have observed are that [women] are more goal orientated in terms of setting targets and meeting them. If they say, ‘I am going to expand capacity or we’re going to increase distribution in the next quarter’, they deliver,” he explained. “It’s not an intuitive feeling. It’s actual hardcore results.”
