Developing Female Talent into Leaders with Elizabeth Batalla #86

In the episode, Nick Day is joined on The HR L&D Podcast by Elizabeth Batalla, who has been in corporate for over 30 years, has lectured at various academic institutions and is the founder of The Institute for Achievement and Excellence.

Elizabeth helps women level up in nine life areas to achieve their professional and personal transformation goals to secure leadership roles and business opportunities.

She also helps companies better educate and promote their female talent. Elizabeth accomplishes this through self-paced masterclasses, tailored programs, and coaching. Her experience also drove her fantastic book, “Level Up to Move Up: The Three Forces in Achieving Excellence”.

At the moment, Liz is reaching out Diversity, Equity and Inclusion people in all sectors, especially male-dominated sectors like STEM industries, to explore how her experience can support their female talent programmes to improve performance, engagement, contribution and progression into leadership roles. Although Elizabeth’s focus is on women, her message is for everyone. That’s because Liz believes in being the change she wishes to see in the world and lives this by example.

In the Fortune 500, only 53 CEOs are female. Meanwhile, nearly half of all FTSE 250 companies lack a woman in the boardroom, and only nine female CEOs are still in the FTSE 100.  We believe businesses can and should be doing more to promote and develop female leaders in the workplace.

Today Elizabeth shares what she has learned and implemented from her own journey.

In this “Developing Female Talent into Leaders” episode with Elizabeth Batalla on The HR L&D Podcast, we also explore:
