In Tough Economic Times Why is Leadership Training Budgets Cut?

While approximately 52% of women are entering today’s workforce, why are only 13.4% reaching the Executive and top corporate board positions?  How did we lose almost 39% of our best, brightest, and most talented women leaders along their career paths? 
Research indicates that leadership development and executive coaching for your top performing women leaders improves retention and performance, team cohesion and productivity, while also increasing corporate profits.  Empirical data demonstrates that companies with greater gender diversity perform better financially.  Specifically, companies with three or more women in top leadership positions experience higher returns on investment, better earnings, and greater stock price growth.  Yes, financial investment in the professional development of your women leaders drives profits!
