This is a great article publishing in Harvard Business Review summarising the findings of a study which aimed to identify the code for women’s leadership success. A central theme is that females need to be resilient whilst taking risks. Resilience is a skill that can be developed. Organisations and individuals must continuously monitor their resilience levels, taking early action to address any areas where it becomes compromised. AURA is a new tool developed by Austen Advisory to do just this. Please get in touch for more information.
Another theme that surfaces is the need to identify potential early in women – women are not so quick to self-promote. Robust, scientific based assessments such as personality or behavioural simulations can be powerful ways of identifying some of the ‘softer’, inherent qualities that may go unnoticed.
