Women's Vision

Helgesen, Sally
June 2010
Leadership Excellence Essentials;Jun2010, Vol. 27 Issue 6, p4
The author states that while women's skills have been recognized for the last 20 years by the best organizations, women's leadership is still in the process of being recognized. She states that most organizations still do not recognize the full scope of women's value to shape the mission and lead strategic direction and thinks this is one reason why women are still underrepresented in positions of influence and power. She claims that the two elements that hinder organizations to understand women's contribution are what women notice and what women value.
