As well as the usual demands encountered by our male colleagues, women leaders in business often need to navigate a whole set of additional challenges such as being in the minority, barriers to career progression or determining our own authentic leadership style.
Billionnaire, Warren Buffet recently commented that harnessing the talent of women is key for building strong economies in the future. And following a study conducted by McKinsey’s in 2011 it was recommended that companies spend more time coaching women and offering them leadership training in order to help develop their careers and overcome barriers to advancement.
