Playing Big In Your Career

A Career Development Programme for Women:

Are you feeling stuck in your career? Do you feel like the headwinds are holding you back? Isn’t it time for you to Play Big in your Career?

Maybe you’re feeling restless, dissatisfied with how things are going at work and you’re ready to be challenged, to discover new possibilities. Maybe it’s time for you to move out of your current role and go for a promotion, or take your career/business into a different direction. In short, it’s time to take a leap forward to obtain the professional fulfilment you desire and deserve.

Taking this leap forward isn’t necessarily going to be comfortable, though. It implies leaving your comfort zone and jumping into the unknown. Moreover, along this journey you’re going to come across obstacles that will hinder your progress. You’re going to have to deal with external challenges like the glass ceiling, as well as internal challenges like your inner critical voice. There might be times you want to just give up and stay where you are today.

So, to help you along this journey of transformation, Joanna MENEZES and myself have created a career development programme to support women who want to overcome the hurdles that are holding them back from achieving professional realization.

You’ll learn how to turn self-doubts into self-belief and quieten your inner critic so that you incarnate the self-confident woman who’s been lying dormant within you.

When you’ve overcome these hurdles, you’ll experience the satisfaction of feeling legitimate, in your rightful place professionally, released from the frustration of being held back. You’ll be able to come out of the shadows and into the limelight, reenergized by the recognition of your accomplishment and having achieved your true professional potential.
