“Sure, I can self-promote but that just doesn’t feel authentic”. I heard this from a female leader during one of my speaking engagements. This and other mindsets often hold women leaders back.
As we work to drive gender balance in workplaces we must work with organizations to remove barriers for women’s advancement. We must equally work within ourselves as women leaders to become aware of and remove the glass ceilings in our own heads – habits and mindsets that lead to self-sabotage, and make it exhausting for so many of us to move our careers forward.
