ADVANCING FEMALE LEADERS
Exploring Values: The fundamental beliefs of a person or organisation, a unique set of characteristics that help guide us and help to identify what is important to us in our lives. These guiding principles dictate behaviour and can help people understand the difference between right and wrong and good and bad. Having an awareness of our unique profile sits at the bedrock of understanding who we are.
There is a great quote from Alice in Wonderland, Alice: Which way should I go? Cat: That depends on where you are going. Alice: I don't know. Cat: Then it doesn't matter which way you go.”
As part of this journey, discover where it is you want to go and find the purpose behind the direction.
This is a process over a period of time, including discovery, exploration, and curiosity. Gaining clarity on who you are and what you want is only part of the jigsaw to becoming the best version of yourself. It is the power of the voice of your inner critic and biases that will limit your progression. Tools and strategies will be uncovered to support you in moving past these obstacles.
If you were a book, what would your cover depict about who you are? What are the strengths and super powers of the lead character? Who are the other characters and what role do they play in your story? It is essential in knowing your journey, to also understand the support you need from around you. By establishing your personal brand helps you to clarify your ask.
Using all the tools and techniques throughout the journey will build your confidence and resilience. This process is about understanding, exploring, trying new things, stretching current comfort zones and growth mindsets, in a safe environment, and embedding new patterns of behaviour that fit your purpose. The further you step in, the more you get out.
