A few week’s ago, I was interviewed by Donald Kelly on The Sales Evangelist podcast. It was fun to catch up and talk about how organizations can attract more women into their sales ranks. At the same time, women also need to step up and be more proactive about developing their personal brand and asking for what they want.
In a global report called Gaining the Talent Advantage, researchers found that 62 percent of companies who have 45 percent or more women in their ranks drove higher-than-average levels of profitable revenue.
Having a more diverse team makes it easier for you to connect with people on multiple levels. There’s a case to be made for the money.
The problem isn’t simply that companies aren’t hiring women. Some women hesitate to lean in to new opportunities. Too often, women often put their heads down and work, expecting that someone will notice their efforts. That may or may not be true.
Enjoy the interview!
