Women are often told that building a strong Network is a key to moving up in their career. But what they are being told is incomplete. In our brand new infographic we examine what's wrong with what women are taught about networking and the Leading Women difference!

Leading Women teamed up with researcher, Lara El Feghaly - view her work on Confidence and Executive Presence -  to analyze the responses to the question: "What advice are women given about Networking?" These responses then were applied to our 3-part definition of leadership: 
It was not surprising to us that once again the majority of the responses fell into "Personal Greatness" and "Engaging Others" categories. As women move up, they get to a point where future opportunities rest on their perceived potential for leading the business, not just leading the people. When determining whether a woman can lead the business, executives look for business, strategic and financial acumen. This is what Leading NOW calls The Missing 33%® of the career success equation for women — not because women don't or can't have business, strategic and financial acumen, but because very few women are clearly told how essential these skills are for reaching the top.
