Leading with Influence: Four Strategies for Women Seeking Success
To build successful teams, HR works to recruit and retain the best and brightest people.
But it isn’t as simple as that. In fact, research suggests that the best performing teams aren’t made up of the smartest individuals. The most successful teams are gender diverse. And yet, the higher you look in companies, the fewer women you see, with the C-level comprised of only 22% women.
So how can organizations enable women to thrive and progress through the career pipeline? In addition, how can women enact powerful leadership tactics in their day-to-day lives?
Join author Courtney Lynch as she explores the importance of gender diversity in the workplace, and how women can build credibility and confidence as leaders. You’ll learn:
- Why gender diversity matters for business success and workplace equality
- Four strategies for building women leaders
- How mentoring sets women (and companies) up for success
