The 4Cs

In the many conversations that the Career Savvy Team has had with senior women a number of themes have emerged as the ones most likely to hinder women's ability to move onward and upward within their organisations.

  • The most prevalent theme was 'Confidence'. Why is confidence a seemingly female issue and, more importantly, why does it hold women back? Comparison with other women, self doubt and the need for approval seems to be at the heart of confidence leaving many women particularly exposed to the feelings of "Am I good enough?", "Will I be found out?", "What if he/she doesn't like me?"

    We'll help you to be Confident when it matters by helping you to keep self doubt at bay, believe in what you have to offer, 'claim' what you are good at and be 'bolder and braver'.

  • The second theme was developing excellent 'Communication' skills. Many women sought help in being more visible as well as handling those inevitable tricky moments and difficult conversations. There is an identifiable need for women to 'find your voice', to let people know who you are, what is important to you and what you stand for.

    We'll help you Communicate by giving you the confidence to raise your profile, to speak up with your authentic voice and have more impact.

  • Many women do a great job but are reluctant to self promote or stand out from the crowd, resulting in 'Contribution', theme number three, being overlooked, taken for granted, or unnoticed altogether. These issues are compounded for women whey they are working part time or returning from maternity or other career break.

    We'll help you to raise awareness of, and maximise your Contribution and more importantly let others know about it.

  • Finally, though by no means least, women wanted to develop more influence, 'gravitas 'or 'Credibility' with others. The need to have others believe in you, follow you and trust your judgment. This all links into confidence of course, if you don't believe in yourself then how do you expect others to believe in you?

    We'll help you develop the Credibility to be noticed and promoted.
