I wrote this article as part of my preparation to speak and emcee (MC) at the 2015 APAC Women in Leadership and Management Summit (see summary here). The theme of the Summit was Advice to My Younger Self and the program liberally sprinkled with sessions about mindset, courage and confidence along with technical case studies in leadership, customer service and leading culture change projects. So in preparation I scoured the interwebs for ideas, videos and some inspiration to see if there are any common themes or threads and also put a call out to my readers - you.
The internet is FULL of advice to your younger self. It seems that hindsight truly is 20:20 vision.
So to keep with the theme of encouraging women to step up, speak out and take charge here are some thoughts from my own community of readers plus a couple of goodies that you might enjoy.
My advice to my younger self?
I work with women one on one to keep them agile, ambitious and focused on making a difference in their careers and communities.
I work with organisations who are working on empowering women into leadership roles.
I also help budding info-preneurs to create key messages that resonate.
What's your advice to your younger self? Comments below.
