Recommended Reading: The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits of Women and Why Women Are More Effective Leaders Than Men

Forbes article at http://www.forbes.com/sites/glennllopis/2014/02/03/the-most-undervalued-leadership-traits-of-women/ The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits of Women is an article written by a Hispanic man and based on his personal and professional experiences. In short, he identifies six leadership traits women naturally possess that are undervalued: Opportunity-driven Strategic Passionate Entrepeneurial Purposeful and Meaningful Traditions and Family The author also refers to another interesting article in the Business Insider on Why Women Are More Effective Leaders Than Men. http://www.businessinsider.com/study-women-are-better-leaders-2014-1 The statistics are dismal: "At the lowest levels, more than half of the employees in organizations are female. As you move to each successively higher level in the organization, the number of women steadily shrinks. At the CEO level, worldwide, there are only 3% to 4% who are women." Yet the study provides support for women in leadership positions and ends on this optimistic note: "To the degree that senior executives and boards of directors are putting men into senior positions, fearing that women will not perform well at higher levels, we hope that this information adds to the assurance that they need not worry about that."

McKinsey Global Survey Results on Gender and Workplace Diversity

McKinsey has published the results of its latest survey on gender and workplace diversity. 1.The online survey was in the field from August 20 to September 6, 2013, and received responses from 1,421 executives (624 men and 797 women) representing the full range of regions, industries, company sizes, tenures, and functional specialties. To adjust for differences in response rates, the data are weighted by the contribution of each respondent’s nation to global GDP. The results indicate that collective, cultural factors at work are more than twice as likely as individual factors to link to women’s confidence that they can reach top management. They recommend a holistic diversity agenda to create a culture that supports women in senior executive positions. The article is available at: http://www.mckinsey.com/Insights/Organization/Moving_mind-sets_on_gender_diversity_McKinsey_Global_Survey_results?cid=other-eml-alt-mip-mck-oth-1401 Is your experience reflective of the survey findings? Are you surprised that men are less aware of the challenges female employees face at work (see Exhibit 3)?

IACCM Women's Networking Meeting : Maximising Presence and Influence in the Organisation 26 Feb 2014

Why are so few women running Fortune 500 companies? Because too many of us don't look and act the part. That's the startling conclusion of a study of 4,000 people conducted by the Center for Talent Innovation (CTI), a New York-based think tank devoted to helping companies effectively leverage their talent pools. These traits are foiling even the most promising go-getters.Following a very successful launch of the Women's Networking Group in 2013 we concluded that it was a key priority to learn more about improving our presence in the business. To that end we have arranged a Senior Masterclass on Presence led by specialist facilitators Gill Avery and Moira Siddons.
