At an annual women in construction event for one of the UK’s largest construction companies, senior women were asked for their top career tips. You can see what I said (and what I should have said) in my article on how being able to walk away from your job gives you confidence.
I didn’t catch the names of all the other women who gave their top tips to the assembled, mainly female, audience at the careers development event, but I did write down what they said. Here are 5 tips for owning your career from people who know what they are talking about.
I was at the event to talk about Imposter Syndrome. It can really hold back your career because it kills your confidence. Find out more about why you shouldn’t feel like a fraud at work and what to do about it if you do in my ebook, Overcoming Imposter Syndrome.
For more tips on how to build your career, I recommend Donald Asher’s book, Who Gets Promoted, Who Doesn’t and Why.
