Women it's time to Take your seat

Women it's time to Take your seat


IF YOU ARE AN ORGANISATION, READ THIS:

 

Why I created the programme:

According to research, companies perform significantly better when women are at the top. ‘Women Matter 2013: Moving corporate culture, moving boundaries’, by McKinsey & Co, found that such companies got +47% return on equity and +55% average earnings before interest and tax. Impressive?  When women high potentials can make a huge difference to organisational performance, it becomes a no-brainer – employ them, develop them and enable them to advance.

I’ll recommend your workshop to friends and people I meet
— Workshop participant

Who the programme is for:

Your talented but unidentified women with or without experience of middle management, keen to advance their careers but are struggling to do so. Maybe they work hard, get great results but can shy away from self-promotion. Perhaps they are not credited for their achievements. Perhaps they don't quite get the value of strategic networking and have stayed on the side lines. But they have great potential, all be it insufficiently realised. 

Inspiring and powerful
— Workshop participant

What the programme achieves:

This is a practical, results-driven workshop, or if you prefer, 1 to 1 mentoring. Based on understanding yourself and the power of political nous
in the workplace, participants will get clarity on what they need to do to make it and assistance with driving their organisation forward.
They will leave with their own personalised action plan and a 1 to 1 follow-up mentoring call to keep the momentum going. 

Now I know where to go and what to do to achieve my career goal
— Workshop participant

If you are an aspiring woman, read this:

 

Why I created the programme:

Not all women of high potential make it. We know this because we do as well as men academically and often better. Yet our numbers at the top level of management fail to reflect this. When you work hard, are passionate about your job and have skills and talents, you expect to get ahead. So it’s hugely frustrating when this doesn’t happen. We’re brought up to believe that working hard and performing well promise success. They don’t. I know, because I’ve been there. Does that sound like you too? When I discovered the politics of navigating the workplace I got promoted. I would now like to share my knowledge and tools with you so that you can make it too.  

I had a valuable experience I’ll never forget
— Workshop participant

Who the programme is for:

Women like you, at middle management level or below. You want to move up further but may have been passed over for promotion. May be you've been feeling invisible, and 'stuck' where you are for a while and you’re wondering why your hard work, qualifications and achievements are not enough. Is that you?

I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will be taking away some useful skills and insights for the future to act upon
— Workshop participant

What the programme achieves:

This isn’t a programme that recycles the myths around women not making it – myths such as how having low aspirations or being hindered by family demands hold women back. This workshop or if you prefer 1 to 1 mentoring, will wise you up to exactly what you bring to the table, the part
played by politics in the workplace and what you need to do to stay a step ahead and make it work for you. You’ll leave with new knowledge and tools to help you get that promotion and a plan to put it all into action. And by the way, you’ll get a follow
up 1 to 1 mentoring call to keep the momentum going. 

Now’s the time to make work work for you.

It has been eye opening for me’

My story

My story


If you were with me on a cool spring day in April 1996 you would have been seated in a cramped public sector office waiting for the phone to ring...
 

You would have felt tension in the room. This was the day after the interview for my dream job. The one I’d waited for for years.

I’d been working for years in what for me had become a mundane job as a conventional middle manager in the Probation Service.

I felt stuck, bored and hankering for change. Although I’d moved to other middle manager roles the new challenges they’d brought were short lived. I had now stopped growing.

I’d also been involved for some years in creating a business culture that included equality and diversity - my passion. But when this new post came up with my passion at its heart, I was scared. I wondered, ‘Is this a job you can do?’

 

On that day in April 1996, one phone call from one director would change my life forever.

The phone rings. I sit up with a start. ‘Claudia, it’s George.’ George was a member of the interview panel and my former line manager.

‘I’m calling about the outcome of your interview.               

‘Sorry ... you didn’t get the job. You weren’t convincing. I expected so much more from you. And now it’s too late.’

 

I lay awake that night, and many more besides, mulling over the interview.

My one chance to get that dream job and I’d blown it.

I made a vow - this was my last attempt at promotion. And yet, in my heart of hearts, I knew I was capable of so much more.

A few years later I moved sideways into a brand new organisation. A place that promised new opportunities for someone to really make their mark.

Yet even though it cost me dearly, my self-doubts continued and my decision to avoid promotion remained firm.  

So I threw myself into my new role, doing what I could to overcome my lack of confidence and move myself on.

Then one day, Peter, a regional director, approached me. ‘Claudia, we’re setting up a new department and I’d like you to apply for one of the new management posts.’

Being head hunted was great. But I hesitated when I remembered, ‘It’s too late’. ‘Peter’, I say, ‘It’s come too late for me. I’m ok where I am’.

‘Claudia, I want you in my team. It’s definitely not too late’. Just look at the job description and you’ll see that it’s right for you’. So I did. And I got the job.

For the next 2 years I decided I wasn’t going to fail again. I learned everything I could about what it takes for a woman to get promoted.

And it worked. When my boss, Peter left I was encouraged to take over the department. 

So it wasn’t too late. 

Now I could see there was only me holding me back.

That a mistake several years ago shouldn’t become a mistake for life.

That I’d learnt what it takes to be a successful woman in business.

I had faced my fears head on and knocked them down one by one. I was no longer heeding George’s voice telling me ‘It’s too late’.

Many years of self-doubt, of being stuck in a role and moving sideways. A total waste of time! Finally I’d made it - promotion and a position I wanted.

 

In 2010, when I took redundancy, I set up Winning Pathways Coaching. With my passion for equality and diversity an on-going driving force, I was keen to share how I’d done it with as many women as possible.

Often, I see women with huge potential, holding themselves back, like I did.

Is that you?

Have you been holding yourself back? Are you now ready to go for what you want?

Because I’m here to tell you it’s never too late.
