Women Lead

How Gender and Generations Are Driving New Leadership

For future leadership, look to women. New research shows women outperform men on most executive competencies. And managers of both genders rate women higher than men on a wide range of leadership skills, including communication, collaboration, and problem solving. At the same time, Generations X and Y are moving past gender roles to define more adaptive leadership practices.

What will leadership look like in the multigenerational, technology-driven workplace? This multimedia presentation highlights findings from the new book Women Lead, which includes interviews with 200 women leaders and surveys of more than 3000 male and female managers across industries.

Participants will learn:

  1. How leadership styles differ by gender and generation - giving some groups the edge
  2. How younger workers are driving new leadership
  3. Why gender matters less and career planning matters more
  4. Which skills and attributes will help future leaders stay competitive
  5. What steps women (and men) can take to become more innovative leaders
