Let's Change the Conversation!

Engaging Men As Champions for Building an Inclusive Workforce and
Advancing Women in Leadership

"Successful organizations of the future will by fully engaged, balanced teams of men and women working together synergistically to produce extraordinary results. Integrated Leadership is the new competitive advantage for organizations and institutions in the 21st Century or for driving better business results." - Rebecca Shambaugh

To achieve Integrated Leadership women leaders need to understand and leverage their valuable and unique leadership qualities and move beyond their Sticky Floors. Another important aspect is helping men to realize the role they play and to open their eyes to some of the many ways that poor, often unconscious, communication among leaders and teams cripples business competitiveness.

SHAMBAUGH’s dynamic and engaging Integrated Leadership offerings are designed to bring men into the conversation and get to the core on how men and women can work in partnership to break down barriers, address gender-related stereotypes and help each other realize their roles in closing the gender gap.
