More people prefer a male boss, but gender gap is narrowing
CNN
"My last boss was a woman. All she did was micromanage everyone." "Every woman boss I've ever had was extremely passive-aggressive in their leadership." "It (was) much easier being managed by a male because he didn't put up with the pettiness or the gossip." Sorry, ladies of the working world. Those are comments we received in response to my recent piece about how companies with more women in C-suites and corporate boards do better financially.

Are you trading efficiency for productivity?
By Michael J. Berens
One of the basic principles of a free-market economy is that markets perform better when unhampered by government regulation or oversight. It turns out the same can be said for employees. A number of workplace research studies have shown that employees perform better, have higher levels of satisfaction, take fewer sick days and are more productive when they have a greater sense of control over their work and their work environment.

Clinton: Helping women succeed is the 'great unfinished business of the 21st century'
CNN
The latest in a series of high-profile honors and speeches, Hillary Clinton said America must set an example on the global stage with women at the forefront of conflict negotiations and in leadership roles. "Too many women around the world still face ceilings that hold them back from participating fully in every aspect of life, which, in turn, holds back entire societies," the former secretary of state said at an event in Washington on Thursday. "And the great unfinished business of the 21st century is helping women and girls break through those ceilings, once and for all."

Women see slow progress in leadership
The Wall Street Journal
The number of women leading top New York companies has flatlined in recent years, according to a study. The report, a biennial survey from Columbia Business School and the Women's Executive Circle of New York, found that women held 40 of 367 executive positions in the state's top 100 public companies by revenue in 2012, or 10.9 percent — down from 11.7 percent in 2010 and 11.9 percent in 2006, when the survey began.

Can social networking make you smarter? People with access to more mentors have stronger skills
Medical Daily
Being "smart" may lie more in our social networks and how well we’re able to imitate our available mentors, rather than our individual levels of intelligence, a new study out of the University of British Columbia found. Our ability to imitate a larger amount of skilled experts rather than a limited amount can help groups and societies thrive, the researchers concluded.

Women learn to dress for success
The New York Times
Corporate boardrooms were once filled with men. Women were there too, but hidden behind the blacks and grays of stiff suits, protective shoulder pads and sensible shoes. Many preferred to blend in as they made strides in the executive arena. But the past few decades have opened up a world where corporate femininity is valued, and a chipped nail or messy hair is equivalent to being under-qualified for a senior level position.
