When She Rises, We All Rise

5th Aug 2020

Westpac Woman of Influence slogan “When she rises, we all rise” If you’re wondering what  the Women of Influence awards has to do with you, think about the slogan. When we can find our voice and find the words to go with that voice to stand up for our worth, the changes in this world will be huge. Perhaps like the butterfly effect theory. One small, positive word or change in behaviour will cause the same somewhere out in the world and on it will go. Positivity breeds positivity. These women are outstanding leaders in their field, but so are we all.

The late Celia Lashlie says it is on us, as woman, to set the tone of our life and our homes. It’s what we accept what goes in our homes and in our lives. If you are an ‘average’ middle of the road woman (as I am) what changes can you make for yourself to make your world better? Thereby making others’ worlds better. Making your claim on your worth, knowing what it looks like and standing up for you can shift the dynamics of preconceived notions of how a woman should look and sound, prejudice, sexism, and abuse (physical, emotional and psychological) to make our place better. Let’s start in our own backyard, our very own house to shift that dynamic.

Up-skill to keep your job...up-skill to get a job!

12th May 2020

Now is the time to up-skill. Why? Because employers are looking for those self starters who use their time to become better.

Better skills at their job, better communicators better presenters, better speakers. You need to stand out from the crowded market, so what have you done to ‘better’ yourself?

This really requires an investment – an investment into yourself and an investment into your future. I remember about 25 years ago when I applied for 33 jobs, in a market where jobs were fairly scarce. I got ONE interview, but I nailed that interview and got that job. To this day, that job was one of my favourites because I was able to articulate very clearly my skills and what I could bring to their company. As it was, I had exactly what they were looking for but, I’m certain, the outcome would have been very different if I hadn’t had done these three things.

  1. Listening to exactly what they were asking in the interview.
  2. Answering with particular attention to detail around each question. As in, I didn’t let nerves get the better of me and ramble on or go off on another tangent.
  3. Enunciating my words clearly, speaking at a good pace and modulating my voice to keep their attention.

How do you feel about going into an interview situation? Maybe it’s been a while since you’ve had it. Are you up to play with the situational interview? They can be really challenging.  If you have time on your hands spend it up-skilling yourself. How to calm nerves, how to stick to the subject, how to speak clearly and with authority so people will actually listen to you. These are all skills you may need to learn, and, guess what? I can help. Choose a training option that suits you
