The Athena Doctrine is a new book that argues "in a world that’s increasingly social, interdependent and transparent ... feminine values are ascendant."
The authors say feminine values and traits include cooperation, long-term thinking, flexibility, nurturing, wisdom and fairness.
The book is summarized in Feminine Values Can Give Tomorow's Leaders and Edge, an HRB article written by the book's authors.
The authors surveyed 64,000 people across the globe and found:
Two-thirds of survey respondents felt that "The world would be a better place if men thought more like women"
