Today's guest is Susan Sloan, the author of A Seat at the Table: Women, Diplomacy, and Lessons for the World. She's not only an author, but also a world travel-having been to all seven continents. Susan discusses how bringing people of different backgrounds, races and genders can give us strength in numbers. The thought that the people making the decisions to affect others should roughly reflect the demographics of the people they represent.In leadership, strength in numbers can be positive or negative. They can be used to make positive change or enable groupthink. Susan also speaks of gender equality and going into detail of some gender attributes and how utilizing them together in the workplace is the "secret sauce." Gender attributes are not all-encompassing, but being aware of them in addition to finding your team's strengths and weaknesses can take your team to the next level.Through Susan's studies, she's discovered the ideal percentage breakdown between genders in the workplace.
