CBODN 'In The Know' Book Discussion
*(Please note that our June event is being hosted at Evans Incorporated in Falls Church, as opposed to our previous venue in Tysons Corner. See details below.)
Topic: Female Vision (Sally Helgesen)
Description: This session is an interactive discussion around the key principles and applications of “Female Vision.”
The Female Vision shows why:
• What women see matters to organizations
• What women notice is what organizations need now
• What women value Will Define Organizational Excellence in The Future
Women often see the world from a different angle than men. But this fact has been overlooked in most organizations. In this brilliant and strongly argued new book, Sally Helgesen and Julie Johnson demonstrate why “the female vision”—what women notice, what they value, how they connect the dots—constitutes women’s most powerful asset in the workplace. Drawing on multiple strands of research, including their own Satisfaction Profile Assessment, they show what companies must do to engage, energize, and support talented women. And they show women how to nurture and sustain their own greatest gifts.
