Results Beyond the Numbers
It's time for women in finance to find power in their purpose!
Women in finance often have a disconnect between their purpose and their number crunching hyper- analytical jobs. They don’t realise it until it’s often too late...when they’re motivation has plateaued, or even worse, their performance is suffering.
Despite the many years of success and climbing up the corporate ladder, very quickly they start to ask themselves the questions: ‘What am I doing? Why am I working so hard? This isn’t satisfying - I do more and more work, and I’m not sure it really makes a difference...how am I making a difference?’ This thought pattern is extremely common and commences the feelings of self-doubt and deterioration of self-confidence that is all too common for female leaders in finance.
That’s not always the case, though. Some women in finance can see the disconnect coming, and so they proactively seek to mitigate it. They identify the key behaviours they need to be demonstrating and capabilities they need to now excel at if they’re going to continue to be successful in the ever-changing world of finance. These women often struggle to find the time and support they need to integrate these desired attributes into their leadership style whilst continuing to nail their day job.
