  • Do you want to be an influential leader?
  • Do you want success without feeling judged?
  • Do you want to be fulfilled in life and do what you love?
  • Do you want all this and still BE YOU?

Women Leaders Global encourages women to step up to the challenge of leadership. It helps women regain their vitality and presence to become powerful, influential leaders. It empowers women and organisations to develop a balanced and enlightened leadership style with the strategic leadership skills, presence, and commitment required to tackle today's global challenges.

"From working with female leaders, I have witnessed many of them feeling isolated and judged, disconnected from their femininity and emotional selves, unhappy and burnt out. This left them lacking vitality and feeling unfulfilled. They often feel unheard, as they are socialised to be seen as nice and listen rather than offer opinions. This decreases the impact of their message and negatively affects their likelihood to get promoted.

In order to become influential, powerful leaders, and overcome the stereotypes about female leadership, women have to step up to their right and obligation to be powerful leaders, and regain their presence, vitality and femininity. It is when we do what we love, when we are authentic, that we are both the most fulfilled and effective."

WHO WE ARE

Dr Maren Goerdel is the CEO and Founder of Women Leaders Global, an Executive & Leadership coaching and consulting company focused on empowering women in organisations to step up to senior leadership positions.

Dr Maren Goerdel is an internationally recognised Executive & Leadership coach and a successful Psychotherapist who works with CEOs, Executive teams and entrepreneurs worldwide. With over 15 years of intense coaching and therapy experience in the areas of Neuroscience, Human Behavioural Change, Leadership Development, Executive Performance Management, Team Dynamics & Talent Incubation, she has provided remarkable results to some of the top executives from Global Fortune 500 and ASX 20 companies.

Specifically, Maren is really committed to build a generation of women leaders who will invest in their countries and communities, provide leadership in their companies and governments, and change the way global solutions are forged.

This is because through her engagements with individuals and companies, she has found the following to be true (as outlined in the 2011 Davies report) for corporations that have a balanced ratio of male/female officers in an executive role:

  • Strong growth of companies is correlated with a higher proportion of women in senior management
  • 66% higher return on invested capital
  • 53% greater return on equity
  • 42% higher return on sales
  • Strengthened governance
  • Increased responsiveness to the market
  • Significantly reduced insolvency risk

However, the current state of affairs is women face a number of barriers in being appointed to leadership positions:

  • They are frequently overlooked for opportunities and are sponsored and mentored in a different way to men.
  • They undervalue their achievements, skills and experiences. A lack in successful female role models and mentors compounds stereotypes and perceived difficulties in rising to the top.
  • Women are often excluded from informal networks influential in board and executive appointments. This is compounded by the lack of transparency in selection criteria.
  • Women have to abide by different rules than men. They are often hired for their achievements rather than as men for their potential (McKinsey 2011). Behaviours that are easily accepted in men get judged harshly in women, while there is a huge pressure to assimilate to the male culture in many companies.

As the world and corporations face new challenges, feminine thinking and values such as empathy, flexibility, compassion, connectedness, humility, balance, openness and reason, offer innovation and a competitive edge. Women now account for over 50% of university graduates in the USA and Europe. Tapping into this under-utilised female talent pool at senior management and board level is vital if companies are to remain competitive and respond to rapidly changing expectations and market demands.

Essentially, if organisations are seeking greater success, then this is a major challenge that needs to be addressed immediately
