Fit in or Stand out? How Women Lead Across Cultures
Researchers Elisabetta Ghisini and Isabelle Lescent-Giles have spent the last year interviewing top female executives around the world--how they rose through the ranks, what characteristics they share, what they’ve learned along the way. The result is a new model of female leadership that’s nothing short of liberating for those of us who’ve been educated in the North American male corporate mold. Flexibility around cultural codes, resilience, an acceptance of complex family dynamics, and an embrace of “accidental leadership” are all part of this new style. Join us for a lively discussion as co-author Ghisini shares her initial findings for the first time.
