    Today nearly all CEO's say they need their cultures to be both customers focused and agile so they can quickly shift priorities to respond to constantly disruptive forces. Yet most business organizations are designed around ridged, alpha-male strengths of competitiveness rather than typical female strengths of collaboration. This is a problem because it's causing negative innovation and the "failure to grow" syndrome.

    Meta-research from institutions such as Harvard, Wharton, MIT, McKinsey and Bain Capital all conclude that women-led teams and organizations achieve more revenue growth based on value innovation then male-dominated organizations. The primary reasons are that women's thinking versatility, strategic empathy and social intelligence give them a leadership advantage in times of instability and disruptive competition.

    Unfortunately many male leaders view women's soft power skills as a weakness rather than a strength. They are insensitive to the business value of cognitive diversity and mistakenly promote male leaders who think alike and act alike. The result is organizations overloaded with men at the top supported by women stuck in the middle. This will only change when women leverage their distinctive leadership advantages.

    In this session, award winning leadership expert Will Marre will teach you how he is successfully transforming technology organizations by fostering cultures of Gender Synergy. His success comes from merging hard power male strengths and female soft power in a behavior-skill-set called SMART Power. SMART Power is based on neuroscience and evidence-based leadership-collaboration skills proven to erase the effect of gender bias and amplify both employee empowerment and accountability.
