- Are you not being heard at work?
- Do you feel undervalued and excluded?
- Are you looking for the next step in your career?
- Are you really effective in a world where male rules still dominate?
Perhaps you are wondering why you are stuck in your career, whilst others seem to advance in their career effortlessly. It may be connected to gender differences between men and women. Interestingly, it’s not just you. Many women experience they plateau in their career, even if initially their career progress went well.
‘Natasha started her career well, she had excellent graduation results, got a promising first job role, put her head down, worked hard and got good results. Then she found her career somehow wasn’t moving forward at the same pace as that of those around her. She learned she had to build her profile, build her network and broadcast her achievements. She learned to adapt to the rules of the male business world around her. It took time and energy, but she succeeded. However, after a number of years she felt she had lost her authenticity. She felt more and more like a fish out of the water in the more male dominated environment near the top. She felt left out and undervalued.’
‘Ingrid was bright, and focussed. She was good at her job, and people needed her. She had really carved out a good area of work, and her work was generally appreciated. Yet, she felt she wasn’t supported. Her impact seemed sometimes less than it could have been. Something was going on, but she couldn’t quite define what it was.’
Could this be you? It’s time you understood what is going on at work. You have your own unique strengths, and it’s important you know what they are. It’s also important you know how to be effective in a world of business where male rules still dominate.
