For decades, corporate America has worked to increase the numbers of women in high-level leadership, yet the gender gap has stubbornly persisted. Thankfully, those efforts aren’t without fruit; research shows that old-style bias has largely disappeared; many leaders recognize the business need for executive women; programs initiated to attract and retain women have made work life better for everyone; women have been given excellent opportunities for networking, inspiration, and mentoring. Some organizations have made real strides in advancing women. But overall, true change is slow.
What makes our services different?
Everything we do is based on rigorous research; we investigate, quantify and apply the factors that work and that matter most.
We are business-driven and work with those serious about getting results — whether that means a women’s leadership program that drives real change or a keynote that shares findings listeners can apply in their next meeting.
We look for “missing link” approaches, and those in which small or targeted changes can make a big difference.
We equip and empower individuals with the high-leverage knowledge needed to take charge of their own trajectory and remove unrecognized obstacles, rather than depending on organizational change alone.
We work with current realities and stay focused on how to drive change from the actual situation. Aspiration is helpful; wishful thinking can be a trap.
We unify instead of divide, building a sense that “we’re on the same team,” drawing in both women and men, and emphasizing mutual respect and prosperity.
