Equal Not Identical: Keynote and Workshop with Judy Hoberman

Women In The Supply Chain
What do men and women have in common when it comes to leadership? Perhaps taking their team and company to the next level. Perhaps bringing more revenue into the company. Perhaps being the best they can be. The question is are men and women the same? Hardly and from those differences is understanding that women want to be treated “Equally Not Identically”… Our struggles with leadership can include Passion, Authenticity, Courage, Communication, Decisiveness, Resilience and Generosity. Overcoming some of the challenges will help to create better leaders with stronger teams.
