Why do so few women attain top executive positions? According to leadership consultant Susan Colantuono, while leadership training teaches men about “business acumen,” women learn interpersonal skills and how to boost their confidence. This critical difference is keeping females mired in middle management. getAbstract recommends Colantuono’s fresh observations to human resources executives responsible for diversity, to executives at firms that lack diverse leadership and to career-minded women working to break through the glass ceiling.
