The Only Woman on the Team – What I learned though my career and how that knowledge can train younger women

 

Audience: Women’s groups, New Managers, Industry groups

Audience Size: 20-200+

Tone: Engaging, Challenging

Most business books, talks and curriculum are targeted towards a primarily male workforce.   As generally the only woman  on the team, experience showed me that often my understanding of situations and the best path forward was frequently quite different from many of male co-workers.  Often what is seen as a favorable trait in a male leader is unfavorable in a female leader.  Even in a very  accepting environment, these differences persist.  How do you best navigate those challenges?  What are ways we can train younger women to be better leaders, managers and employees?  How can current leaders better communicate to all employees, regardless of gender?
