      Studies Suggest That Women Are More Naturally Inclined for Leadership Positions Yet Confidence is Lacking

      Thought we’d share this fascinating article from the Harvard Business Review. It’s titled Research: Women Score Higher Than Men in Most Leadership Skills.

      It offers some stimulating ideas. Here’s one that we thought was genuinely noteworthy:

      Interestingly, our data shows that when women are asked to assess themselves, they are not as generous in their ratings. In the last few years we created a self-assessment that measures, among other things, confidence.

      It shares some intriguing points. Here’s one of them:

      In order to have people wrestle with what it takes to conceive of action plans where the aforementioned criteria constitute their only boundaries, the military structures its experiential training activities with wide parameters.

      Why It's Important that Women Support Women

      Thought we'd share this interesting article from the Harvard Business Review. It's called A Lack of Sponsorship is Keeping Women from Advancing into Leadership.

      In it, Herminia Ibarra shares some thoughtful perspectives. Here's one of them:

      This disparity in access to critical roles may be compounded, or perhaps caused, by differences in women’s and men’s relationships with executives who can provide access to those jobs. Here human nature creates an uneven playing field: People’s tendency to gravitate to those who are like them on salient dimensions such as gender increases the likelihood that powerful ...

It’s this underlying idea of well, if this person could have responded to the same things by doing these things ...

      Asking For Extended Unpaid Leaves 101

      Asking for time off work pursuing your passions is a hugely underutilized benefit in large swaths of the Australian workforce. If you need a long time off, employees have unpaid leaves as an option. The problem is that it's so unconventional that going about and asking your boss and the HR can be pretty scary?

      "He also came in with a concrete plan, volunteering to work extra days before his trip during the organization’s two-week  Christmas holiday, when people were still needed to take phone donations, collect the mail and process checks," writes HBR's Amy Gallo in ...
