Dr. Carol Vallone Mitchell is, without question, the most eclectic guest we’ve had on the Work in Progress our podcast. She’s a former molecular biologist – as Bill Maher would say, that’s my old job – a US Patent holder for research conducted while she was at DuPont, and is the cofounder of the leadership development consulting firm Talent Strategy Partners. Dr. Mitchell is the author of the new business book, Collaboration Code: How Men Lead Culture Change and Nurture Tomorrow’s Leaders.
- How Dr. Mitchell went from microbiology to her current work (developing leaders).
- We discuss the Women’s Leadership BlueprintTM, a gender-specific, research-based model describing the unique profile of behaviors that top leaders have in common, and the Men’s New Leadership BlueprintTM: how these two models compare – where they overlap and how they diverge.
- Carol’s recently published article, “Collaborative Leadership: A Cure for Corporate Crisis and Change.”
- Research indicates senior management teams with a higher representation of women outperform those with fewer women.Why is this the case?
- How she was “discovered” by Arianna Huffington.
