PRLog (Press Release) - Dec. 11, 2013 - PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- During her recent TEDxBeaconStreet Talk, Susan Colantuono, CEO of Leading Women, introduced a critical missing piece of the career success equation for women, The Missing 33%™.

Based on Leading Women’s research, The Missing 33% is absent in conventional advice given to women, typical corporate talent development and performance management systems, and in most informal mentoring relationships that women participate in. As Colantuono says, "Without addressing The Missing 33%, women will continue to thrive in middle management, but won't break through into senior and executive positions."

What should women be hearing? "Women need to hear that business, strategic and financial acumen are the door openers for career advancement and that the other two elements of leadership are what differentiate them as candidates. What's missing isn't women's capabilities in these areas, it is the explicit advice about their importance” stated Colantuono.

Following Colantuono's TEDx Talk, one CEO told her, "I never realized that I mentor women and men differently. With women I focus on confidence. With men I focus on teaching them the business. I need to help women learn the business, too."
