In an organization, leaders do not absolutely have to come from men; women must be given equal opportunities to become leaders. There is no denying the fact that men are generally physically stronger than women. This study uses a descriptive qualitative research method. Data collection techniques in this study used interview, observation, and documentation techniques. Then the data obtained in the field will be analyzed and described in narrative form. Furthermore, the results of this study illustrate that the leadership style of women is that of the Chancellor of the Islamic University of Makassar and STAI Yapnas Jeneponto. The leadership style applied by the Chancellor of UIM in the development of Islamic tertiary institutions is a situational leadership style. The chairperson of STAI Yapnas is a feminine leadership style and a transformational leadership style. Women's leadership has positive implications for the development of UIM and STAI Yapnas.
