10 Principles for Creating Gender Balanced Leadership Teams

Sponsored by:




News Flash! Men and Women are different! There are the obvious physical differences, but we are also different in ways that are not easy to see, but often experienced. We think differently, we communicate differently and we respond differently. There are good reasons for that. We view the world from different perspectives.   

Difference in perspectives brings more money to the bottom line than we can imagine. The problem is we’re missing perspective. We’re leaving money on the table! It’s because in most organizations, we’re lacking female leadership at senior levels. We don’t have the gender balance we need to best solve our biggest and most expensive problems. The question is how do we change this paradigm? How do we get more women in senior leadership roles?

As a leader, what do you need to do? How are you going to bring more women to the table to have more gender balance in leadership and make more money?

Join Melissa Greenwell and learn how you can change practices, programs and behaviors and that will enable you to build a more gender balanced and successful leadership team and get more money!
