In the Breaking the Glass Ceiling research originally performed in 1987 conducted by the Center for Creative Leadership, it was clear that women walk a narrow band in many organizations. They have to be strong and assertive but not too aggressive. This narrow band has widened but it hasn’t disappeared. Join us to learn more about these issues and walk away with concrete strategies to fuel your own success.
In this session we will review:
- What have we learned since that earlier study?
- What do we know now about how women can be more effective in organizations today?
- How do women continue to be more effective in light of many demands on their time?
