Did you know

86% of women handle all the primary family responsibilities (Bright Horizons Modern family Index report).  Because of these pressing demands on their time and energy and the later starts because of school runs, women often overcompensate at work to keep up with their male counterparts.

Surveys show that men are generally more driven by financial reward, position, competition and winning whereas whilst women appreciate the rewards, they also want to enjoy their work, to be happy at work and to be liked.  They want to encourage collaboration, build strong relationships, have good work/life balance and to feel they are making a difference.

Whilst juggling their many diverse responsibilities, women can fall into regular habits that ultimately prevent them from progressing in their career at the speed of their male colleagues if at all. This can leave them feeling undervalued and overlooked.  In this webinar we will look at some of these habits in more detail and the impact they have on your career pathway and your future fulfilment and impact.

Sylvia will be sharing top tips and actions that you can take right now to overcome these habits and tap into more of your true potential.
