I know just how difficult it is to create a fulfilling and meaningful career. And it’s even harder when you are doing it in isolation, doubting yourself and wasting precious time. I spent many years in corporate aspiring for so much more and never finding the time or the supporters to help me maximise my potential. In my early career I often felt stuck and lacked the self-confidence to push myself forward. My career did progress (never as quickly as I wanted) and eventually I became the main brain winner – which brought more challenges especially guilt having a young family.
As an executive coach and leadership development expert, I’ve seen this pattern play out again and again through the coaching of hundreds of women in business.
To be straight, the thing that changed everything, was finally asking for help. I sought the structure and the community – and anything I could lay my hands on to help me be the best version of me. I became a personal development junkie! I invested in coaching and high-end mastermind groups. I sought out those who were ahead of me so I could learn and pick the best strategies.
These were some of the best decisions I ever made. My confidence improved, my mindset shifted, my network advanced and I fell back in love with me!
I then turned all of my learning and insight into the WLA and created the leadership programmes you see today. It’s my lifelong passion to inspire women to be brave, to reach out, to have the courage and confidence to be more than they ever thought possible. And to see that sea change in and across organisations no matter what business sector.
Are you ready to seek support, help and guidance to help you learn and grow? To be part of a community that is loving and supportive. A group of amazing women who want to see you succeed and to help you get there?
