Report: Women Need Career Coaching.

A management consulting firm recently released a report examining women’s advancement in corporations and encouraged companies to start mentoring female employees to be future leaders. “By increasing the number of women who make it from middle management to the vice presidential level, corporations could vastly improve the odds for building diversity in top management,” the report released by McKinsey & Co., according to the Wall Street Journal.

 

One of the report’s writers said, “[C]ompanies need to spend more time coaching women and offering more leadership training and rotation through various management roles before their ambitions sour.” (April 2011)
