For future leadership, look to women. New research shows women outperform men on most executive competencies. Managers of both genders rate women higher than men on a wide range of leadership skills, including communication, collaboration, and problem solving from the new book Women Lead, which includes interviews with 200 women leaders and surveys of more than 3000 male and female managers across multiple industries.

Participants will learn:

  1. Future Leaders – Why women are well positioned to be our current and future leaders.
  2. Leadership – Why women leaders will lead the future of work.
  3. Generations – How younger women are driving new leadership in the modern workplace.
  4. Gender – Why gender matters less and quality leadership means more.
  5. Skills – What skills and attributes will help future leaders stay more competitive.
  6. Future – What steps women (and men) can take to become more innovative leaders.
