What are the critical performance attributes of male and female leaders?  Would you describe female leaders differently than male leaders?  Would your views accord with data and research on the subject?
Through an in-depth study of the attributes of executives, CEOs and other high performing professionals across many industries, Optimum Talent Inc. has sought to better understand the key differences between men and women who pursue and occupy leadership positions.  Optimum Talent will share the results of its most recent study in this interactive session and discuss:

  • Factors that impact representation by women in leadership roles
  • Strategies to counter systemic barriers
  • Internal beliefs that can inhibit success

Attendees will learn and explore how to integrate this new understanding into their professional experience, enhance interactions with male and female colleagues, and be more self-aware as they pursue leadership roles.
