Gender inequality is one of the most serious problems facing US businesses today. Inequality lowers profits, stifles creativity, and causes high employee turnover. Companies struggle to find and retain talented women, and women who land top positions often feel alienated at work. Something has to change. Leaders need an entirely new way of thinking about gender equality. That's what you'll find in this book. The Dignity Mindset offers leaders an innovative, paradigm-shifting approach to facilitate gender equality. By adopting a Dignity Mindset, leaders can replace outdated belief systems with groundbreaking perspectives that recognize the common worth and needs of all employees. In The Dignity Mindset, veteran executive coach Susan Hodgkinson shows how gender-biased forces harm organizations. And her groundbreaking Dignity Mindset Toolkit provides a comprehensive roadmap that guides leaders in creating gender-balanced organizations wherein all employees-women and men-can contribute at their highest levels while maximizing business success.
