In order for women to excel at work, they may need to take special measures. Below, you’ll find 4 things to start doing at work today if you’d like to climb the ladder and get the recognition that you deserve:
1. Spend Time With The Right People
If you’re going to do better, then you need to make sure you’re spending time with the right people. We become like the people we spend the most time with, so make sure you’re spending time with people you’d be happy to be compared to! The people you spend time with should encourage you to move forward, and help you to feel more positive.
2. Ask For Help
If you need help, try to get comfortable with asking for it. We often avoid conversations that make us feel vulnerable, but they could actually be the conversations that help us to proceed.
3. Invest In Yourself
If you want to do better, it’s essential that you work on yourself. This means reading the right books, taking courses, and improving on the skills you know you need help with.
4. Become More Assertive
It can be difficult for women to become more assertive – it’s not something we feel confident with, even though we know we should do it to excel in male dominated industries (and a male dominated world). However, becoming more assertive can sometimes just be a case of realizing your worth and developing confidence. The infographic below can give you more advice.
