It's estimated that two-thirds of the nation's wealth will be in women's hands by 2030. Never before have women been so degreed or so represented as decision-makers in all areas of influence. Why, then, are women withdrawing from leadership positions in unprecedented numbers? Why has the tally of women in middle management reached a plateau? The traditional path to leadership in Western culture was forged by men. This linear, head-down, forward-at-all-costs method doesn't work for women, who define success in more holistic terms, seeking both personal and...read more
