Jodi Detjen’s Book

The biggest barrier to women becoming leaders we see is their assumptions about their own limitations.  Many of these are socialized in girls from a young age.  We see women holding themselves back continually.  And we see women literally change their communities, organizations, and the world when they reframe these assumptions and realize their inherent capabilities and power.

I believe in women’s leadership for two reasons.  First, there is a significant percentage of high quality talent that is being underutilized across the organizational hierarchy.  Secondly, women bring an alternative perspective because of their socialized experience.  This perspective yields innovative solutions that have barely been identified.  For organizations that can tap into this, these reasons translate into increased profitability. – Jodi Detjen
