BETTER BALANCE LEADS TO BETTER BUSINESS RESULTS
Successful organizations of the future will be led by fully engaged, balanced teams of men and women working together synergistically to produce extraordinary results.
Studies prove that organizations with a greater number of women in senior executive roles are more profitable, have greater market share, and are better able to compete and grow. Businesses with fewer women leaders are just plain leaving money on the table. Yet even in the twenty-first century, women are still not equally represented in leadership.
In her groundbreaking new book, leadership expert Rebecca Shambaugh argues that business leaders need to embrace and leverage the broader spectrum of gender intelligence that fosters a balanced leadership perspective and yields better business results. Make Room for Her reveals:
What an "Integrated Leadership" model looks like
Why the Integrated Leadership approach is powerful--and sustainable
What organizations, men, and women can do to harness the unique qualities of men and women
How to ensure female talents don't go unnoticed
Make Room for Her provides firsthand advice from men on how women can grow and advance to the senior leadership and executive levels, and it offers a female's perspective on how men can best coach and support them in doing so.
Featuring interviews with more than 50 top executives as well as case studies based on Shambaugh's work coaching hundreds of women and men leaders, Make Room for Her is essential reading for anyone who hopes to lead an organization to greatness.
