According to Lean In’s Women in the Workplace 2017 study, companies whose top management teams include women post 35% higher returns on equity and 34% higher total returns to shareholders.

A veteran to both the unique challenges women in business face and opportunities for organizations to capitalize on the often forgotten or sidelined leadership traits women possess, Cathy Light, CEO of Leadership Balance and author decided to create a brand new opportunity for clients and peers. Launching today, Leadership Balance’s exclusive program is unlike anything else on the market- specifically targeted to entry, mid and senior-level aspiring leaders.
