Leadership Strength Through Gender Integration
In the future there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.
—Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and Author of Lean In
Increased Market Share
Retention of High Potential Leaders
What do these things have in common? They all result from a cultural change to embrace highly qualified, diverse leadership. Truly integrating your leadership team with strong women changes how you make decisions, how you look at your market, and significantly impacts your bottom line. Not simply because they are female, but because they are well prepared to lead. Diversity of thought strengthens your teams at every level. Broad thinking unleashes the most creative opportunities.
Now is the time to take a bold approach to the problem that you know exists. No more diversity training, no more promoting solely based on gender or skin color, no more affirmative action, no more placing people in positions for which they are not qualified. It just doesn’t work.
And you know it.
To really make a change in your company, tackle diversity from two directions at once.
Prepare your high potential women to take a seat at the executive table, fully qualified and ready to lead. Prepare your executive team and evolve your company culture to fully embrace the resulting diversity of thought. Enjoy increased profits and market share, attract and retain high quality leaders, and quell the #MeToo firestorm.
I’m excited to tell you about an extension of my Executive Leadership Coaching practice to do just this. I have partnered with an amazing group of leaders at Fortitude Consulting to help you to make this a reality for your company.
