Distinguishing the Qualities of Women Leaders – BONUS: Free Caliper Profile


Women are steadily increasing their presence at the supervisory and middle management levels. Yet only a small percentage occupy positions at the highest levels of organizational leadership. Among the causal factors of this discrepancy is the difference in the types of challenges men and women face as they ascend leadership ranks.

During this PNC-sponsored event, Caliper Director of Psychometrics Amie Mansfield and Organizational Development Consultant Karen Triola will share the findings of a comprehensive study of women at the highest echelons of business. You’ll learn:

  • the qualities of successful women leaders
  • leadership style, natural tendencies and areas of opportunity
  • the most common challenges and barriers facing women as they ascend the leadership ranks
  • the techniques successful women have used to overcome some of those challenges
  • next steps for developing leadership skills in critical areas

Registration to this event entitles you to a free Caliper Profile, a personality assessment instrument used by employers worldwide. Validated by nearly a half-century of research, the Caliper Profile measures 22 personality traits that relate to job performance. Caliper Corporation is a 50+ year-old talent management company providing talent acquisition, leadership development, succession planning and organizational change services. The firm has served more than 28,000 companies worldwide.

You can access your free Caliper Profile here.


If you complete your Caliper Profile by April 17, your results will be emailed to you on or before May 10, giving you the opportunity to ask questions about your assessment results during the event. Results for assessments submitted after April 17 will be returned via email sometime after the May 10 event.

Additionally, Caliper is offering a personal debrief session, providing additional detail about the results of your assessment, at a discounted rate of $100.
