Companies are experiencing increased pressure to create gender-balanced leadership teams and cultures of inclusion. However, in many cases, current leadership teams, boardrooms, and the overall organizational cultures do not reflect gender equality. Instead, there is an inherent gender inequality throughout most organizations from the top to the bottom.

Imagine that you could successfully leverage and maximize the value of different viewpoints of the men and women on your team towards mutual and organizational success.  In this presentation, you'll learn how leading from the heart makes gender partnership possible and is a win/win for men, women and their organizations.
