Factors of successful women leadership in Saudi Arabia
Saudi woman face many typesof sexual segregation, which hinders her opportunity to reach leadership positions, even that there are misconceptions in our society that she is not suitable for leadership, so we try here to focus on this subject in the light of lack of studies which investigate this matter. This paper aims to highlight the factors promoting success in leading organizations in general and the success of women in particular with highlighting the status of Saudi women in these factors. The main hypothesis is "the more the woman has factors of leadership, the more success she may achieve in leading organizations". We conclude that although Saudi woman still suffers from a lot of obstacles, but the cultural change, societal transformation, increase her education, skills, employment and technological developments that reduces the impact of lack experience and knowledge, increase their chances of success in leading organizations so we expect her bright future especially in light of keenness of King Abdullah to support woman role in society and enable her to lead. So we recommend Saudi women perseverance to take their rights and demonstrate their success in leadership. This study was conducted during the reign of King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
