- the way we're doing business is not sustainable from an individual perspective. I'd say a healthy dose of work life balance and focus on more than just financial returns would bring in more talented people (both men and women) that are otherwise prone to choosing other paths.
What are the divorce stats for sr execs and how different are they from the avg?
It's funny because some of the C-level folks I've spoken with and interviewed have been open about the fact that they still waste most of their time - but one has to give the perception that one will sacrifice most other things (life, so, health, etc) in favor of the firm and the ladder...
The way it is now, business may attract a type of unbalanced individual that results in leader diversity not being broad enough (regardless of gender). And men and women are motivated by different things, right?
I doubt we'd have designed it like it is given the opportunity.. It became this way and it needs to be adjusted for the good of all.
