Women are underrepresented at the organizational senior leadership level relative to their numbers in the workforce and in managerial positions. While societal biases and assumptions about women and male leaders exist, certain habits can get in the way of women advancing in their careers. Organizations that build gender-diverse, integrated leadership teams have demonstrated improved business results.
Organizational career development programs can incorporate findings from authors Rebecca Shambaugh (Make Room for Her) and Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith (How Women Rise) to support female professionals advancing to senior leadership positions. This session will discuss self-limiting behaviors that can often get in the way of female professionals looking to their next promotion or job. In this facilitated session, participants will identify habits that often keep women stuck in career auto-pilot. Female participants will reflect on personal career aspirations and select one behavior that can increase their success. Male participants will reflect on ways to coach high potential female leaders. Participants will discuss career strategies that will support an integrated senior leadership model for improved business results.
