Meeting the challenges of today’s global workplace
Women face unique challenges in the workplace but they also add unique value and perspective. They shatter groupthink, improve communication dynamics, and reinvigorate companies in ways that make them more competitive. Research shows that companies with a critical mass of top-team gender diversity enjoy significantly better financial performance.
Women executives based internationally or who lead worldwide teams encounter specific dynamics and environments. The Yale School of Management and HEC Paris have therefore combined their expertise to develop a high-impact program to help rising leaders successfully overcome these challenges.
Participants will enhance their leadership behaviors and cross-cultural communication skills, learn how to create high-performing teams, understand how to use and manage networks, develop as thoughtful leaders, drive innovation, and create an authentic leadership style.
“A good leader, in my view, should have a clear vision of the future they want and the society they need to build. They must also have a connection with the people who work for them and be able to mobilize their best energies to create teams where people can be most creative and happy.”
This program will enable you to:
- Lead your organization to better company-wide gender diversity
- Develop strategic vision and sharper decision-making skills to drive growth through innovation, and manage crises
- Explore new approaches based on innovation and strategy to reinvent your business model
- Adapt your leadership style and skills to specific individual, team, or company contexts
- Build an authentic leadership style and value proposition that supports your career strategy and your goal to work in senior management
