QUESTION OF THE DAY:
IS THE BEST MAN FOR THE JOB
ALWAYS A MAN?
Not all that long ago, Felicia Lyon could be seen in the boardrooms and hallways of countless Fortune 500 companies, presenting insights, strategies and solutions to C-level executives on behalf of Deloitte Consulting.
As her tenure progressed and responsibilities grew, an increasing number of colleagues began seeking her advice on how to win as a woman in corporate America.
Simultaneously, she had come to realize that the vast majority of her professional experiences – as diverse as they were – shared an all-too-common (and unsettling) thread: a staggering dearth of women in positions of leadership.
Shortly thereafter, she made the decision to pursue her true calling, as an inspiring coach and trusted advisor to astute business leaders and professional women who are ready, willing and able to lead at the highest level.
As the founder of Women Moving Mountains, Felicia views it as a privilege, an honor and her mission to impart the knowledge and wisdom she's acquired, so that the women of today’s workforce can summon the confidence, gain the clarity, and execute the strategies necessary for a powerhouse career aligned with a beautiful life.
