Jodi Detjen, Author

Women abound in finance — in fact they make up almost 50 percent of all employees in finance and insurance. But go up a couple of levels and what do you see? Very few women.

What’s blocking the movement upward? There are three key barriers. Read More

Strategic Shifts That Build Executive Leadership
Jodi Detjen and Sheila Simsarian

Organizations are challenged to develop leaders who can think strategically about the business and solve systemic problems. How can mid-level leaders develop this capability? Herein, we describe five strategic shifts in perspective that are essential for mid-level managers in transitioning successfully to strategic leadership positions. All five shifts improve mid-level leaders’ ability to look beyond tactics to see wider opportunities and enable strategic impact. The shifts are iterative and build on each other. We offer a new model that guides managers in shaping strategic leaders using these five perspective shifts to impact the organization positively and substantially. Further, we provide specific techniques that mid-level managers can employ to shift their perspectives and build personal strategic capabilities. Finally, we share specific ‘Try It’ exercises that mid-level managers can engage in to learn about the preferred concepts. Read more…

How Women In Banking Can Rise to the Top

May 22, 2014

Jodi Detjen

Women represent 54% of the labor pool in the finance and banking industries. But a precipitous drop occurs at the executive level. Just 11% of chief financial officers are women, while only 23% of all senior officer positions are held by women. The few women at the top with families typically have a stay-at-home spouse in support of their careers. The message is clear: women with families are not welcome. A number of factors have conspired to keep many women from reaching the top in banking and finance. Significant financial rewards go to those who prioritize face time and hours at work, making it difficult for women to achieve work-life balance. Meanwhile, systemic gender bias often forces women who want to stay in banking and finance to adapt to male-dominated, aggressive cultures. The result? Finance has the largest pay differential of any industry. Continue Reading…

December 26, 2014

Jodi Detjen

Sandra looks like a rock star at her multinational company. She’s risen to middle management. She embodies the “ideal:” working long hours, managing multiple projects and a team of performers. She gets work done. Her manager says, “We couldn’t run the place without you.” But look underneath the sheen and it’s not so “perfect.” Sandra works all the time, feeling guilty if she has to leave early for something personal. She is a gatekeeper: She takes care of her direct reports, gives them work, but also doesn’t bring them…Continue Reading…
