Excerpt: In recent history, America has faced two international crises that offer clear examples of what happens when a bad decision is made by an Alpha male leader. It both cases, the bad decision was reinforced by the people in his inner circle, seemingly without judgment. This is called the “Janus Effect” in psychology and answers the reoccurring question asked by a worried public: “Why are the people in Donald Trump inner circle unable or unwilling to stand up to him and push back with a different decision?” Alexia Parks is a best-selling author, recognized global expert on gender equality, and an award-winning entrepreneur. She is also a UN Mentor who mentored the #1 Winner of he Goldman Sachs / Fortune Most Powerful Women in the World Summit (2014) and Founder of Alexia Parks 10TRAITS Leadership.  Alexia has appeared as an expert on national, international TV news, in TIME magazine, and formerly wrote...

Founder and CEO of the Alexia Parks 10TRAITS Leadership Institute, Alexia Parks has developed a NEW Science-Based Model of Gender Equality and Leadership. The Alexia Parks 10TRAITS™ PERSONAL POWER TOOL is a simple, easy-to-use, universal high tech tool that can be applied to any field of human endeavor, including business, politics, the environment, and classroom, to increase confidence, innovation and performance levels.

One of the key constraints on the financial performance of many organizations is top management’s capacity to reach good decisions quickly with high quality. And, it is well documented that higher gender diversity contributes to the enhanced quality of decision making and improved overall company performance both in terms of financial gain and better risk management. Ultimately, managers are tested and evaluated in terms of their success in making decisions.
