Interaction Associates announced that is the choice of a global high-technology company to deliver a specialized executive education program designed to develop the company’s worldwide women leaders.
Interaction Associates – a leading innovator of workplace methods that develop leaders, build trust, and deepen collaboration to help drive business results, – has a unique and powerful perspective on developing women leaders. The firm’s Women in Leadership program (WIL) focuses on five key skill areas: self-awareness, negotiating skills, mentoring and networking, effective conversations, and gender dilemmas. The program pressure-tests and hones women leaders’ business skills -equipping women not only for career success, but for major contributions to the company, as well.
“Many companies know that developing all their people is a competitive advantage – and we see the Women in Leadership program as an important component in a strategy to attract, involve, and retain the best people in the industry,” said Linda Stewart, Interaction Associates President and CEO. “Research shows women leaders bring diverse points of view and insights into customer needs that are invaluable to an organizations’ success,” Stewart added.
The global technology solutions firm joins other companies that are also developing their women with this targeted program. It has retained Interaction Associates as part of its focus providing development opportunities
for employees worldwide. The aim is to leverage gender diversity for strong business results, and attract and retain top talent, while assuring a strong, diverse leadership bench.
“The program is challenging, insightful, and practical,” said Stewart. “Women in Leadership achieves that balance to give women leaders grounded and actionable insights and skills. We are thrilled to collaborate with such an innovative global company to further innovate leadership solutions for strong business results,” added Stewart.
