Learn: How Talented Women Thrive

We thought you would appreciate this recent study from The McKinsey Quarterly. McKinsey interviewed more than 85 women around the world to learn what drives and sustains successful female leaders. They distilled a model called “Centered Leadership” based on five broad, interrelated dimensions. The five dimensions are as follows:

Meaning – finding your strengths and putting them to work in the service of an inspiring purpose
Managing Energy – knowing where your energy comes from, where it goes, and what you can do to manage it
Positive Framing – adopting a more constructive way to view your world, expand your horizons, and gain the resilience to move ahead even when bad things happen
Connecting – identifying who can help you grow, building stronger relationships, and increasing your sense of belonging
Engaging – finding your voice, becoming self-reliant and confident by accepting opportunities and the inherent risks they bring, and collaborating with others
