GET THE COMPETATIVE EDGE
Our greatest untapped asset is the innate wisdom, health and capacity for insight
My work is centered around helping women tap into their competitive edge so that they. show-up in the workplace as a powerful, authentic, and essential contributor, without having their femininity misunderstood and ridiculed.
Instead of trying to model themselves around the male model of leadership, I want women to experience the freedom of being a strong feminine leader that is respected and essential for any healthy environment.
Women face a myriad of challenges in the workplace--the wage gap, sexual harassment, gender bias, a male-dominated environment...to name a few. Is it any wonder that women over-compensate--go above and beyond what is expected of them--in order to be viewed as a viable and essential contributor.
Having a competitive edge at work is important for both men and women who want to thrive in the workplace. Billions of dollars are spent annually on professional training programs, updating skill-sets; conducting personality tests, improving communication skills, and learning how to deal with stress.
Although professional development is a good thing and should be encouraged, it only works some of the time. The truth is that for the most part, employees are still suffering from stress, under-performance, low satisfaction, strained communication, and leaders who have no power to inspire.
How Does One Get a Competitive Edge?
While all of these strategies are useful and well-meaning, they don’t have
any real lasting effect, because they miss out on a fundamental understanding. And that misunderstanding is based on the assumption that work-related
problems are caused by circumstances outside of us. For example a
bad boss, tight deadlines, too much work, not enough training, or difficult
Our work with executives and leaders is to show them that there is a direct
link between the state of mind of individuals and the results a company experiences and that the key variable that affects performance, resiliency,
and creativity, is our state of mind.
Our overall message to women in the workplace is that having a
competitive edge is not just about having skill sets--that's a given in
today's workplace. Or putting in more hours to overcompensate in a
male-dominated workplace. But the real edge is about understanding
how they are creating their experience in terms of productivity, better relationships, able to deal with stress; not letting insecurity stop them etc.
How do you get this edge? Understanding how we create our experience.
If you know this, you're gold.
