- Leadership can guarantee dominant positions for organisations pursuing their goals in entrepreneurship, business, politics, science as well as social and outreach activities and education programmes. Female leadership is most pronounced in this area. In spite of a significant number of studies in the given sphere, we come to a conclusion that the concept of female leadership remains undeveloped to a large extent. Whereas there is no universal model of leadership qualities, there is also a point of view that these can be formed and developed. Competency approach is used in the higher school educational process for forming leadership qualities in students. Leadership qualities are formed during the entire process of training within different disciplines in the curricula. There exist training programmes and other special courses allowing the students to reveal their leadership potential. Within this applied social study, we make an attempt to describe a competency-based model of a female leader as seen by female students of different majors and grades as well as analyse female students’ opinion about the possibility of developing leadership qualities and their motivation for participation in training sessions and courses aimed at developing these competencies. We draw a conclusion that training programmes for forming and developing leadership competencies can be designed for mixed groups of female students, i.e. students of different majors and grades. Moreover, we show an outline competency-based model of a female leader created on the ground of a group interview with female students of different majors.
