Despite decades of effort, why is the percentage of women in leadership still so small?  Based on 10 years of research, Feldhahn identifies the unwritten, and often subconscious, expectations and perceptions held by most men that may become obstacles for women. You will learn several often unrecognized, but critical, reasons for the gap of female advancement into leadership resulting in your ability to design programs and help women overcome obstacles arising from the common, unstated expectations of male bosses, colleagues, subordinates and clients.  You will have immediate ability to help women increase their influence and effectiveness to become leaders chosen for and in the pipeline -- elevating potentially excellent leaders who might otherwise have been considered just good “utility players.”
