As the co-founder and CEO of MergeLane -- the investment accelerator targeting startups with at least one female in leadership -- Sue has become a thought leader on coaching women to reach their highest potential. MergeLane is the culmination of Sue's years of experience working closely with hundreds of women leaders as a CEO, coach and mentor.
In this talk, Sue shares what she has learned about unique characteristics women bring to the workforce in leadership roles. She discusses both the value of these contributions and the ways in which these positive traits (like all traits) can become negative, both for women, for men, and for a company's performance.
This talk is ideal for audiences of men and women who are willing to be in a typically taboo conversation about the challenge and value of difference. Audiences will leave with clear insights and actionable guidance around creating a culture where women can be peak performers -- both as a result of knowing themselves better and as a function of working with men and women who want to retain and optimize key talent on their teams.
