Women, Leadership, and Success
November 4, 2014 at 1:00pm - 2:00pm EST
By: John Keyser
Companies should not be run solely by men or be predominately male; nor should they be run solely by women. Generally, women offer different leadership skills and competencies than men, and these skills are every bit as important- if not more so. Women are more focused on organizational culture, the spirit of a company’s employees, and the long term effects of decisions and actions. We need the best of both the male and female perspective in today's leadership.
Join a discussion about the importance of including women in business leadership, a topic that is the focus of John Keyser's upcoming ASTD Press book. In writing this book, John interviewed about 50 business leaders, both men and women. Their stories reveal the positive impact women bring to an organization, and offer advice on how to seize this opportunity to strengthen business leadership. Using these insights, this discussion will address how to attract and retain talented women.
During this webcast, you will learn to:
• let go of limiting assumptions about women in business and the importance of being open-minded
• empower women to continue their careers while attending to family responsibilities
• communicate the accomplishments of everyone in the organization, including those working remotely.
John Keyser will help you recognize the skills and competencies of talented women regarding leadership, client relationships, sales (such as creating new relationships), and the positive influence they bring to organizational culture.
