Abstract

Despite the perception that the number of employed women is generally increasing or that the number of women in leadership positions is increasing, the analysis shows alarming trends. The number of employed women worldwide is lessened, and in some parts of the world, the number of women in leadership positions is also decreasing. This is surprising, given that all research shows that companies with a balanced number of men and women have a more competitive advantage than the ones without it because such companies show better sales and financial results. The research conducted in Croatia shows that Croatia follows negative global trends in the number of employed women and women in leadership positions. The research also shows that women in leadership positions more frequently use the most effective transformational leadership styles than their male colleagues and that companies, where there are more women in all leadership positions, have a better organisational impact than companies where this is not the case.
