It is vital to our country and our world for women to achieve parity in corporate and civic leadership. Studies show that the leadership gap between male and female executives is insignificant except in one area: Vision. And vision is critical to leadership.
Kate Purmal has been on all sides of the equation as a Fortune 1000 executive, CEO and founder of five start-ups, a mother, daughter, and wife. What she has seen is that even the most brilliant and ambitious women don’t play big enough – many of us fail to create a full and compelling vision of what’s possible.
Most people think that visionaries are born. But really vision can be learned. Kate has deconstructed why visionaries act bolder and take intelligent risks, and how you can learn how to do the same.
As you cultivate vision, you’ll be inspired to step out of your comfort zone, to force changes in things that hold you back. In the process you’ll create a more satisfying and meaningful life. Equally important, by taking the lead, you’ll pave the way for women behind us to take their place at the leadership table.
