Executive Employment Contracts for Women CEOs – Terms and Negotiations

One week ago, on April 25, 2017, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on  “Executive Employment Contracts for Women CEOs – Terms and Negotiations.” 

Despite significant advances in employment laws, gender inequality remains an area of both concern and controversy. Women continue to lag behind men, even at the CEO, C-suite and senior executive level, when it comes to compensation, opportunity for advancement, job status and equity sharing, to name just a few.

Many women still have to prove themselves as trail blazers for their gender in all-male executive management teams that still operate as the “old boys club” with a locker room mentality toward women.

This article discusses hurdles faced today by women with regard to

  • Hiring – achieving equal pay, benefits and other key terms in hiring
  • Change of Control – achieving equal treatment for contributions made that have brought about a successful exit and change of control for the company
  • Harassment & Termination – Circumstances where despite their professional attitude and achievements, women are not judged on merit, but instead face gender-based workplace harassment, threatened and even actual employment termination.

In each instance this article discusses not only these circumstances but also actions for women CEOs and senior executives to take to protect their interests, obtain their proper rights and benefits, and continue their path of career advancement.

My article on this subject was published March 27, 2017 by CEOWorld magazine.

The Advantage of RSUs in Your CEO Compensation Package

One week ago, on February 28, 2017, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on  “The Advantage of RSUs in Your CEO Compensation Package.” 

For CEOs, C-Suite executives and other senior level executives, equity compensation is a key part and often the most important part of their compensation package. For many senior executives, equity means stock options or restricted stock. But in many circumstances the better choice is RSUs, restricted stock units.

Finding a co-founder or recruiting a core team

Finding a co-founder or recruiting a core team is hard work. It is a long, dragged out process and you have the right to be picky and should be picky. Ultimately, choosing a co-founder is like choosing a spouse. A business partnership truly is a marriage. You will have to make compromises when it comes to money, ideas, scheduling and so much more. Look for someone who can bring something different to the table, if you are more tech-savvy look for someone who is business oriented. A successful partnership is one where each co-founder has their own area of expertise and when you combine those two separate areas you’ll find you have yourself a successful duo. Don’t jump the gun and enter into a partnership just because you like what you see right of the bat. “Date”, get to know who your potential candidate is and if they share similar views, if they’re trust worthy and loyal. After a few months of feeling them out – then take the next step and propose a business plan together.
