Am I doing it right?
Am I asking too much?
I don’t want to bother them.
Maybe I’m expecting a lot.
I come across these words again and again in conversations with the women I work with.
This is not surprising, given that we have been conditioned to ensure everyone else’s wellbeing before reaching out for what we want. In instances where we do act and speak up with boldness, we are quickly made aware of lines we might have crossed.
But imagine how it can impact your confidence, each time you second-guess your words and actions.
As a coach I also see the bigger picture: how your energy and focus towards your goals is completely diminished when this happens.
My job is then to hold a mirror up to you when you question or have doubts about yourself.
Because without unpacking those things you will not be going in the direction you want.
This quarter, I am launching a coaching programme for women in leadership who are ready to reach for that next step in their careers. If this is you, please book a Zoom call and we can discuss working together.
