There’s something special about women’s leadership–and it’s not what you think.
If you’re a woman, women’s leadership can feel like my world–or, perhaps, our world. It’s the planet you inhabit 24/7. If you’re a man, women’s leadership can feel like their world. It’s a distant planet you occasionally visit.
So, which is it?
Both. Women’s leadership is all of our world. When women lead skillfully, our organizations prosper, and all of us within them experience greater engagement. When women lead poorly–or aren’t matched well to opportunities–we all lose.
In Episode 8 of The Amiel Show, Kerrie Halmi and I discuss:
- 8:15 Why it’s useful for women to build their leadership skills together with other women
- 13:30 How to advocate for yourself and get sponsors to do the same
- 23:00 How everyone benefits from women in positions of leadership
- 26:00 Men supporting women’s success in corporate America
- 30:30 Why and how to strategically network
- 42:00 The power of “superconnectors”
- 49:30 What Kerrie is deliberately practicing in her life
