Women in leadership face unique and varied challenges. You may be preoccupied not only with fulfilling duties and meeting deadlines, but also with seeming competent and credible to your clients and colleagues. As a woman, you may anticipate that others will question your competence, which makes you work even harder to be taken seriously. As pressures intensify, advocating for yourself or your direct reports may not seem like an option, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, overworked, and frustrated. You may want a healthier balance in life, but don’t know how to begin implementing lasting changes.
In a leadership role, this often means being held to a double standard. When you act in the best interest of yourself and your team, your actions may be misinterpreted as aggressive rather than assertive. And, on top of all these pressures at work, you may have several responsibilities at home, such as attending to your relationship with your partner, parenting, or caring for a sick or aging relative. Depending on the workplace and its unspoken practices, you may even feel like you need to conceal your pregnancy or other health needs in order to maintain your position and be considered for promotion.
You devote so much of your time to your leadership role. You deserve to feel respected and appreciated by your colleagues and clients. Coaching for women’s leadership development can provide you with effective strategies to find work-life balance, relieve stress, deal with difficult coworkers, advocate for yourself, and better serve your team. @fearlesslifecoaching
