Developing Women Leaders:
Five Essentials 
We need to make sure we are investing time and energy to developing future generations of women for leadership. As Warren Buffett notes, harnessing the talent of women is key for building strong economies.  There are five universal factors that, no matter where people are, where they are from, or what sector theywomen in business are in, make a real difference in encouraging young women to reach success.

Larry Page is a geeky introvert. Larry Ellison is an adrenaline freak that races yachts, flies planes, and buys entire islands.

All that may be true, but it's a big mistake to think that defines them.
