Why Women Need Specialized Leadership Mentoring

Women are 50.53% of the population and generate only 33.732% of the national income.

Studies have shown that when a higher position or lead position on an important project come open, men will assert themselves as the ideal candidate if they possess approximately 60% of the necessary skills.

Women hold themselves back until they possess close to 80% of the necessary skills.

148 women to every 100 men are completing graduate school. Conversely, in their first role, post-graduation, women receive .82 to a man’s $1.

An important point for women to understand is that the same studies reveal that men start negotiating their salary from their first position, while women typically say, “Thank you”. The belief expressed is that if they work hard and do a great job, someone will notice and reward them accordingly.

This program delivers 6 modules, each focusing on a key element for women to accelerate their advancement and increase their personal and professional leverage.
1

Developing Recognition of the Cognitive Biases That Inform How You Experience Life

Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman says: “The confidence people have in their beliefs is not a measure of the quality of evidence, but of the coherence of the story that the mind has managed to construct.”

In short, our life is neither as good or as bad, as successful or unsuccessful as we imagine it at any given moment, a phenomenon referred to as naïve realism.

Applying techniques based in brain science can increase recognition between objective thought patterns and those that are subjective. This produces clarified thinking for more effective decision making.

Silencing the Burden of Imposter Syndrome

In 1978 Pauline Claunce and Suzanne Ines coined the term “Imposter Syndrome” to describe the female confidence challenge. “Women frequently express that they don’t feel they deserve their job and are “imposters” who could be found out at any moment.”

Women have described Imposter Syndrome as internal wrestling matches that rise in periodic episodes. They are aware of the emotionally punishing difference between a general dip in self-confidence and the sensations of being an imposter.
Sidelining Imposter Syndrome starts with learning your personal ‘Key Indicators’, and following up with brain science practices to refocus from its self-critical noise.

Focusing on What You Already Enjoy Versus What You’ve Been Chasing

Brain science research reveals that areas of the brain activated by an external threat, respond similarly to self-criticism, resulting in our unconsciously becoming our own aggressor.

Learning how to initiate a mental/emotional pattern reset during an external event that feels threatening, can soothe the flight, fight or freeze reactions. The event becomes an insight to our ability to maintain balance in any situation, resulting in next level growth.

Applying techniques based in brain science to reset the old mindset will not only produce greater access to next level experiences but produce more satisfaction in every area of life.

Networking Practices Unique to Accelerating Women’s Success

A study conducted by the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University revealed, women who try to network like men to get ahead actually do the worst.

The research also showed that women who form a strong inner circle with other women are nearly three times more likely to get a better job than women who don’t have that female support system.

Adopting practices proven effective in helping women focus their inherent uniqueness toward successful networking has shown consistent expansion in personal networks, an increased the number of monthly referrals and development of a trustworthy circle of alliances.

5

Utilizing the Power of Routine

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle

Due to the overburdening on women of the unpaid labor they are responsible for, on top of their career obligations, they are less prone to maintain clear routines. Studies show that the absence of a routine increases mental, physical, and emotional strain. An essential key to establishing an effective routine is factoring in time for non-work obligations, and importantly, leisure.
Learning to develop routines that focus attention into every aspect of life is key to enhancing enjoyment of life by reaping the benefits of routine.

Getting Out of the Way of Your Own Happiness

A majority of human problems is rooted in how we mentally contextualize them.

A common habit, particularly among women, is having achieved anything of significance they charge forward to next, instead of momentarily relishing a sense of accomplishment. Another common human trait is chasing comfort instead of satisfaction, which results in a resistance to change, something the brain inherently disdains.

Adopting mindset-reset practices developed to replace restrictive habitual behaviors with actions that demonstrate self-appreciation, particularly in the face of significant change, can increase our happiness quotient in every aspect of life.

It’s time to unleash your potential!
