It’s time for women not just to lean in, but to dive in.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) March 08, 2014
In commemoration of International Women’s Day and its theme of “Inspiring Change,” the Glenn Llopis Group(GLG), a preeminent thought-leadership, human capital, and business strategy consultancy firm, has announced it will hold a leadership workshop specifically tailored for women executives on July 10th in Orange County, California.
Influenced by great women who made him appreciate their approach towards leadership, GLG Chairman Glenn Llopis, a Forbes contributing business leadership writer, former C-suite executive, and entrepreneur, has grown to understand their decision-making processes, the dynamics and subtleties of their personalities and styles, and other special character qualities that women possess. “The best women leaders I know have circular vision that enables them to be well-rounded people,” he says. “For example, they have their finger on the pulse of the culture and can talk to you about the latest pop-culture news – but then easily switch gears to give you their perspective on what is taking place on Wall Street. Women leaders seeking a chance to be significant see the world through a lens of opportunity; they are especially in search of those opportunities previously unseen.”
As of July 2013, there were only 18 female elected presidents and prime ministers in power around the globe. In the business world, women currently hold only 4.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO positions and the same percentage of Fortune 1000 CEO positions. As women continue their upward trajectory in the business world, they have yet to be fully appreciated for the unique qualities and abilities they bring to the workplace.
“As many women can attest to, it can be difficult for a man to understand how women think, act, and innovate unless he has been closely influenced by the women in his life,” explains Llopis, who’s February 2014 Forbes blog, “The Most Undervalued Leadership Traits of Women,” has been read by thousands of individuals across the world. “It because of my upbringing coupled with my experience of knowing how to navigate the C-suite and corporate America, that I can provide tailored coaching and insights to women executives whose leadership abilities are not being truly recognized nor fully leveraged in the workplace.”
Based on the overwhelming response to his Forbes blog, it was clear to Llopis, whose firm delivers professional development and training programs to Fortune 500 companies as well as business strategy consulting services, that there was a market demand for this type of leadership workshop. “Today’s identity crisis in the workplace, is something that women leaders in particular have been facing for much too long,” says Llopis, who will facilitate the July training – the first of a series of workshops to be held through the end of 2014. “While the tide is changing and more women are being elevated into leadership roles, there is still much work to do.”
Adds Llopis, “My experiences have taught me that great women make it a point to teach men about women. It’s time for women not just to lean in, but to dive in.”
