ABSTRACT

Women have made great strides in the work place but they are still underrepresented in the upper level positions in healthcare. Literature is replete concerning the lack of women in leadership positions; (Johns, 2013; Dotson, & Nuru-Jeter, 2012; McDonagh & Paris, 2013; Roebuck & Smith, 2011). However, there is paucity of research alluding to the attributes of success for women in leadership positions in the healthcare industry. Many women frequently attain managerial positions while dealing with conflicting demands on their time professionally and personally. This paper concentrates on the traits and skills of women who have reached senior leadership positions, in an industry where women executives are rare.
