Overcoming Obstacles to Self-Confidence
Why Self-Confidence matters
Studies show that women consistently undervalue themselves and underestimate their abilities compared to men. This lack of self-confidence results in women speaking up less, not pursuing career opportunities, or leaning in. It begs the question whether this lack of self-confidence might be contributing to the continuing leadership gap within organizations.
If we want to seriously address this issue, we must address the gender bias, lack of supportive role models and mentors as well as look at women's own unconscious biases that are getting in the way of having the confidence it takes to be successful.
Companies cannot afford to ignore the gender gap any longer. With nearly 60% of new graduates being women, and 80% of consumer decision-making power in the hands of women, this is a demographic that represents the biggest economic opportunity of our time. Fortune 500 companies with at least 3 women on boards have a 53% increase on return on equity, 42% increase in return on sales, and 66% increase in return on invested capital. Gender balance is good for business.
It is shown that when women are given the tools to be better and more effective leaders, their chances to advance into the leadership positions that are business critical increases. Mentorship, training, women's networks, and coaching are crucial to helping fill the gender gap.
Companies that want to be 21st century companies understand the business need to invest in great talent.
