Stuck at The Corporate Crossroads?

March 9, 2017

At another of our well-attended Women’s Business Lunches, we chose to celebrate women in business during the City Council’s week-long Festival for International Women’s Day 2017.

We returned to DWF in Manchester who once again kindly hosted the event for us, in support of Smart Works Greater Manchester, where 25% from each ticket sold was donated to the charity.

We heard about the charity from their Lead Manager; Fiona Gunnion and interview coaching volunteer Janet Pickering, and we given an over on how it supports women into the workplace through support, coaching and provision of suitable workwear.

Attendees heard from Mindset Coach; Yvonne Williams who talked through the steps to consider when faced with change in your career – whether enforced, deliberate or as a result of a ‘light-bulb’ moment.

Stop

Simplify

Clarify

Energise

At the point that you are faced with a ‘corporate crossroads’ these were the four stages of focus to consider when making decisions about your future.   “How you do anything is how you do everything.”

With time taken to think about their own situations, attendees left with a set of actions that they can take to help them on their way through their careers and beyond.
