This is true both inside and outside of the workplace. Women are also less likely to consider timeline trajectories in planning their careers and career development. Neither do they typically have "extra" time to accept additional assignments that traditionally have helped workers ascend the corporate ladder. In this paper, research firm Eudemonia illustrates how a time-bound and time-sensitive approach to developing women for business leadership positions can be a critical enabler of success.
