Stop the Leak in Your Talent Pipeline

Many leadership programs are targeted to women performing at the vice president level and above. The problem with targeting at this level is that companies miss the women who want and need help to advance—your aspiring and high-potential future leaders who often get stuck at middle management positions and may get discouraged and/or leave the company to advance. This is where businesses lose the highest percentage of high-potential women, and therefore their return on investment.

Women are ambitious and believe they have the qualifications - they want to make a contribution to the success of the organization. Over time, however, the barriers seem to get larger and women’s belief that there is opportunity ahead diminishes - and along with it their willingness to keep pushing.

Companies have a promising opportunity to fully tap the talent of high potential women….and to train them to be leaders by focusing on the transition from mid-level manager to senior management. By plugging the leaks in the talent pipeline corporate performance can improve.
