Need to reignite your career? The ten steps that matter.

On any given day in your work life, there is a lot to focus on. Clients, meetings, deadlines, office politics, stress and anxiety, not to mention your boss, your team and just when do you get that coffee break?! It can be pretty overwhelming. So it’s not surprising that my research shows that 70% of women don’t have a career plan, and more than 48% of women are just completely winging it when it comes to what’s next for them work wise. Not only that, more than 70% of women are really ...

Two questions that will change how you think about purpose

I was listening to Chase Jarvis on his podcast the other morning while out for my walk. He was talking about creativity and entrepreneurship, but for me he distilled down a whole lot of thinking around career, passion pursuits and purpose into these two questions: What do you care about? How can you become masterful at that? If you stopped stressing about finding your purpose and how to make money from your calling, and instead asked yourself these two questions, what would you discover about ...

Are you following the bread crumbs?

A decade before I wrote my first book, I was walking around the streets of New York. I’d gotten lost in the back streets of SOHO and was meandering along my way when I came across a big bookstore. In the large window display were a whole range of books on how to be a non-fiction writer. At this stage I hadn’t even dreamt of writing a book. But something about this display intrigued me. So I found the writing section, and before I knew what was happening, I was walking back on the ...

Want to start a side hustle? Bust these myths that will stop you.

Danielle sits at her desk each day in between meetings sketching designs of the jewellery she longs to make but doesn’t, because she thinks to herself again and again that no one will ever buy it. Georgia works in a bank but secretly dreams about starting a baking business and becoming the next cupcake Queen. But she doesn’t, because she thinks she needs to have a commercial kitchen and a retail store and lots and lots of money. And then there’s Mary, who gets woken up at ...

Is it time to build your exit strategy?

If there were one hot topic that is coming up a lot in my coaching enquiries, women’s groups I lead and with Q&A’s after speaking gigs, it’s that of career change. To be more specific, I keep getting questions about how to build an effective exit strategy. In other words – can you please help me get the **** out of this career I hate?! And whilst it has been a consistent theme in my coaching practice over the past three years, it is definitely heightened at the ...

She was blocking her own possibilities…..are you?

Picture this: A woman sits in front of me. She is amazing, but doesn’t fully realise it. We start talking. She has come to see me because she wants more for her career than what she is experiencing. Secretly, she actually wants more for her life. She feels stuck. Stifled. And more than a bit over it. We unpack what’s going on currently. Work. Home. Wellbeing. Life. And then, as the time passes, we go deeper. “If there were no limitations regarding time, money, commitments or ...

WLW 016 Dr. Adam Fraser on The Importance of Diversity

Are you ready for a refreshing conversation about the importance of diversity that we don’t often get to hear? For too long now, the conversations around gender parity and diversity have largely been held by women and we don’t often hear from the men in this space who are standing with us and working alongside us to increase diversity for the benefit of all of us. In this conversation I talk with Dr. Adam Fraser about his work as an advocate for women as well as his area of expertise, which ...

Are you focused on the right things at work?

Think about the work you have done over the past week. How much of your agenda did you actually get done? Give it a percentage. Now think about how much of your time was spent focused on other people’s stuff. Emails, meetings, last minute requests, random favors etc. Rate that as well.The first list is the important stuff. Your agenda. Things that are important to your work, your life, your career. But when you really think honestly about your day, it’s often pretty clear that this stuff ...

The truth about becoming more confident

I was recording a bonus interview for the upcoming launch of The Career Toolkit program with a dear client yesterday. The topic was confidence.

It was a juicy and super helpful conversation that I know members will gain such great insight from. And right toward the end, she said the truth that all women need to hear, something that we had been working on and ...
