It’s Day Eleven of my Twenty-One Tools post series! Today, you can download The ROI of Developing Women Leaders by Lisa Ann Edwards
If you have been visiting my blog to pick up the great material provided by this years WBECS speakers, you now have ten complimentary downloads to add to your learning library. In this post you will receive some important data from a study on women leaders conducted by Lisa Ann Edwards and her team at Bloom Coaching Institute. They wanted to uncover exactly what makes a difference in the development of women leaders, how it truly makes a tangible change in organizations and why it leads to monetary gains.
Lisa has been a speaker at WBECS for a number of years. She is considered an expert in the field of Return on Investment (ROI) in coaching. She has also done extensive work in the area of women and leadership.
Here is a sneak peek of the article by Lisa Edwards:
Investing in women leaders is important. We all know we should do it. We feel compelled in today’s media charged world that we ought to do it. We are surrounded by positive, social momentum to absolve ourselves of unconscious bias and to be better organizations, individuals, and humans, to support our women leaders. And yet, even though we know we should be investing in the development of our women leaders from the perspective of a social and human responsibility, business leaders rarely understand the in-depth data behind why developing women leaders makes a tangible, measurable impact to organizations. Research consistently demonstrates, there is real financial value in investing in women. Studies show gains of 34% increase in profit margins, 16% return on sales, improved problem solving capabilities, increased innovation and more, when companies invest in women leaders. But high-level research doesn’t explain why investing in women pays off.
