Women Leaders and the Gender Double Bind
Women in the workplace often have to choose between being liked but not respected, or being respected but not liked. When this occurs, women face multifaceted political dynamics that don’t affect men.
This interactive training highlights how implicit gender bias affects relationships in the workplace and has a marked impact on talent retention and growth. Participants engage in high-energy and thought-provoking improvisational exercises that challenge their self-awareness and allow them to reflect on how their own bias impacts their team and organization.
Specific learning outcomes will be personalized for your audience and will vary depending on which training format you select and will cover:
- Three proven techniques to disrupt gender bias, both as an individual and an organization, in positive ways
- How to have constructive conversations and build collaboration
- How to apply improvisation to “on-your-feet” moments that are uncomfortable, to turn situations around to your advantage
- Case studies of gender bias in action, and how to be more aware of those pitfalls in the workplace
This topic, and so much more, is covered in our blog.
Food for thought:
Companies in the top-quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to have superior value creation. The highest-performing companies on both profitability and diversity had more women in line (i.e., typically revenue-generating) roles than in staff roles on their executive teams.
