Topic: Why Women Leading Teams Is A Natural and Necessary Fit with Susan Leahy and Freeman Michaels of Group to TEAM Leadership Solutions 

Susan Leahy and Freeman Michaels, the co-founders of Group to TEAM Leadership Solutions, offer a powerful perspective for women in leadership. 

Research shows that teams with more women consistently outperform teams dominated by men, at solving complex problems.[1] Digging into the research, it becomes clear that “social sensitivity” and a willingness to share ideas, rather than compete to be “right” about one’s ideas, are the key factors in being good teammates. 

Susan Leahy and Freeman Michaels offer a powerful perspective for women in leadership.  The following key topics represent core components of a 9-month pilot program they recently completed with women leaders from The North Face and JanSport. 

·  Empowered Women Empower Everyone (Why More Women Need To Lead)
·  Why Soft Skills Are Becoming the Hard Skills Required to Succeed in Business
·  Understanding that “Power-With” vs. “Power-Over” is the Key to Thriving as a Woman Leader
·  Balancing Masculine and Feminine Energies – Helping Women Leaders Develop Healthy Confidence and Assertiveness
