When I facilitate workshops within organisations, I try to take the opportunity to find out what team members want more of, in order to help them reach their potential both within their jobs and in their careers.
Women in finance and other traditionally male-dominated, competitive and ‘hustle’-energy environments experience particular challenges. Here are some findings, personal perspectives and tools to support women to build personal power and professional confidence.
My live Q&A Chat in June 2021 was on ‘Building Professional Confidence for You and Your Team’.
I shared the WHAT, WHY and HOW of building professional confidence purposefully, right from the start of team members’ careers through to leadership level. We then had time to network and discuss implementation points.
Developing the professional confidence of your team should start early in their careers and continue all the way through. By developing your team’s professional confidence, you are developing a ‘team brand’ of trust.
In this conversation with If Innovation Could Talk, I discussed:
• innovative measures New Work Consulting has developed to address the divide between a company’s brand and its culture,
• the ways businesses can build trust in the digital age, and
• how individuals build trust through their personal brands.
Trust is more than a code of ethics or PR management. Culture may be intangible but it IS visible – publicly, online! Highlights from our discussion for FINSIA’s Future of Finance 2021 series, where I co-presented with futurist Rocky Scopelliti.
A common concern when taking on professional development programs within an organisation is how much impact it will really make: therefore the ROI on time and money. This is what you should be looking for.
